Injured in an Accident Due to Another Person’s Negligence?
Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyer Fights for Injured Victims’ Rights
Being injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence is one of the most disruptive and stressful events that can occur in a person’s life. After such an accident, you are likely not able to work, resulting in lost wages, and — if you have children — trying to find childcare when you are recuperating from an injury only adds to the stress. Further, the ever-growing pile of medical bills only makes the situation seem more frustrating and hopeless. Take heart in knowing, however, that all is not lost; there are people who will fight for you on your behalf.

Practice Areas for Grutzmacher Law Firm
According to the National Safety Council, “an American is accidentally injured and killed every three minutes by a preventable event”. These numbers consistently increase annually. Over 14,000 more people were injured or killed in otherwise preventable accidents between 2015 – 2016 alone. If you have suffered an injury in any of following instances, then our Philadelphia personal injury lawyer can help.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
These types of accidents cover more than just car accidents. A “motor vehicle” is any road vehicle that can exceed a maximum of 25 miles per hour and is capable of transporting passengers and/or cargo loads. Some examples of common motor vehicles include:
- Commercial trucks (semi-trucks, delivery trucks etc.)
Our personal injury law firm also represents individuals who were struck and subsequently injured by any kind of motor vehicle as a pedestrian.
A premises liability claim can be filed if a person was injured on someone else’s property due to negligence. For example, say a patron falls on a wet floor that did not have a warning sign up. If an injury results, then the accident could be attributed to negligent business practices. Premises liability claims usually involve slip and fall accidents and equipment failure (like escalators and elevators) which result in a patron’s broken limbs or other serious injury. However, premises liability can also involve animal attacks — such as dog bites — as owner negligence is often to blame for these incidents. In these cases, a personal injury claim can be filed directly against the owner of the animal.
Those who work in construction are at risk for injury every time they go to work. Injuries sustained at worksites are often attributed to heavy machinery and materials. The most commonly reported injuries suffered by construction workers onsite are:
- Back and/or spinal injury
- Chemical exposure
Were you injured in an accident at a worksite due a business owner’s negligence? Our construction accident lawyer can help. Additionally, we have extensive experience representing personal injury and wrongful death claims on behalf of passersby and other victims of construction accidents.
The top reason for filing a medical malpractice claim is most often attributed to “failure to diagnose or a delay of diagnosis.” If you have been the victim of any kind of medical malpractice, then our attorney can fight on your behalf for rightful compensation.
