Car, bus, and truck accidents happen on a daily basis and while car insurance is typically great for replacing the value of the damaged property, in many cases it simply isn’t enough to pay for the medical treatments that auto accident victims require.
Take the following into consideration. In Pennsylvania, the auto insurance minimums are as follows:
Bodily Injury Liability Coverage: $15,000 per person, $30,000 per accident
Property Damage Liability Coverage: $5,000
Uninsured Motorist Coverage: $15,000 per person, $30,000 per accident
Underinsured Motorist Coverage: $15,000 per person, $30,000 per accident
First Party Benefits Medical Payments: $5,000
This might seem like a lot of coverage but when you look at the common injuries sustained by auto accident victims and the cost to treat those injuries, it becomes clear that insurance coverage often doesn’t cut it. For example, did you know that a minor spinal injury can cost as much as $350,000 in the first year and $30,000 every year after that?
If you or a family member were injured in an auto accident and are now struggling to pay for your medical care, contact our legal team today. Together, we can fight for the compensation that you need to pay for medical treatments, the income that you have lost, physical suffering, and emotional pain.
Construction Accident Lawyers Seeking The Maximum Compensation For Injured Workers In Media
While it may come as a shock to others, construction workers are aware that they are working in one of the most dangerous industries in the country. Despite the hard work of advocates and an increase in the number of construction accident laws, company owners and contractors continue to ignore the safety standards required by the law.
Our lawyers have handled construction accident cases in the past that involved:
Slip & Fall Accidents
Falls From A Height
Accidents Involving A Falling Object
Exposure To Toxic Chemicals
The majority of these accidents are caused by a lack of training, improper safety procedures, and defective tools.
Workers’ compensation insurance, which is legally required by most employers, may offer some relief, cannot compensate an injured worker for all of their losses. In the best cases, it provides payments for medical treatments relating to the injury sustained in the accident and a fraction of lost wages. It will never provide full compensation for all lost earnings or the suffering endured by the worker.
A construction accident lawsuit can.
A construction accident lawsuit is filed against a third-party whose negligence caused the accident. This may be a company, contractor, parts or tool manufacturer, or the designer of a defective part. In some instances, there may be more than one at-fault party.
Contact our local law office, serving Delaware County from Media, PA to learn more about how we can assist you with your construction accident lawsuit.

Workers’ Compensation Insurance – Why Is Coverage Denied To So Many Injured Workers?
Each year, thousands of workers are injured or become ill because of their working environment. Even after taking the correct steps, including informing a supervisor about the injury or illness and seeking immediate medical attention, many human resources departments and insurance adjusters fail to provide the support a worker needs. The claims process can be very confusing and without an attorney to advocate for you, you may find your claim denied outright or your benefits reduced.
Our attorneys have the experience you need on your side. In addition to reviewing your claim and handling your appeal, we also review the accident to determine if you may also be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit. Contact us at our local Media office today.
