Comprehensive Philadelphia Personal Injury Attorney
Benedum Law offers assistance in a wide range of personal injury matters in Chestnut Hill and throughout the greater Philadelphia area. For a personal injury attorney, contact our office for helpful, friendly advice combined with strong, effective representation that gets results when you have been injured because of another party’s negligence or misconduct.
We’ll help you understand your rights and options whether you have full tort or limited tort coverage, and we’ll help determine if you suffered a “serious injury” under the terms of your policy, allowing you to step outside of your no-fault coverage and pursue a civil claim against the negligent driver who hit you.
Distracted driving is on the rise, and so is the risk of being struck by a distracted driver who is not scanning the road and doesn’t see a motorcycle in time to avoid an accident. We stand up for the rights of motorcycle riders and fight hard to overcome the common bias against bikers.
Truck drivers stay on the road long past the time federal regulations say they should take a break, and transportation carriers routinely fail to maintain their fleet with tires, brakes and signals in good working order. We hold truckers and trucking companies liable for the serious harm caused by their failures, even when they actively try to hide their safety violations.
Recreational boating and personal watercraft are popular pastimes on Pennsylvania lakes and rivers, but sometimes boat operators have too much fun and forget they are in charge of powerful motor vehicles with the capacity to do great harm. Negligence, recklessness and intoxication on the water are simply unacceptable when innocent lives are at stake.
SEPTA is one of the largest public transit systems in the country, and people can find their way around Philadelphia by train, trolley, bus and more. City bus accident claims, as a pedestrian, passenger or driver of another car, must be pursued promptly and according to the correct procedure in order to secure your rights, or your claim can be lost before you ever get started. Choose an experienced attorney proud to serve the people of Chestnut Hill and greater Philadelphia when they are injured by negligent bus operation.
Property owners are required to maintain their premises in a way that makes them reasonably safe for visitors and guests. When property owners knew about a danger on their property (or they should have known about it had they been properly diligent), they can be held liable for the harm caused by failing to correct a hazard or warn the public in a reasonable period of time. The comprehensive premises liability practice at Benedum Law includes helping victims of slip and fall accidents, dog bites and assaults due to negligent security.
It’s up to contractors and property owners to see to it that workers on the job have the safety equipment and training they need, and that jobsites are properly supervised, to ensure that construction work can go on safely. When accidents happen because of the negligence of those in charge or a third party they’ve hired, injured workers may be able to recover compensation for the harm done to them.
In the most serious cases, injury victims suffer severe and lasting disabilities or deficits that are not only extremely costly to treat but often require a lifetime of additional costs for medical care and to meet the challenges of daily living. Benedum Law understands what it takes to build a strong case for full compensation after a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, burn injury, fracture, amputation or other serious or catastrophic injury.
