Lancaster County is a great place to live, but it can be hazardous. In 2010, there were more than 5,000 automobile accidents in Lancaster County; 2,643 of these involved injuries, and 57 caused fatalities. Of the 65 people who died in those accidents, 26 were the victims of alcohol-related wrecks.  It goes without saying that many of those injured or killed in Lancaster County traffic mishaps were victims of negligence on the part of others, and that they – or their survivors – deserve compensation for their suffering.

Have You Suffered a Personal Injury Due to Someone Else’s Negligence?

Traffic accidents are only one cause of personal injuries in Lancaster County. Slips and falls, criminal acts, work-related mishaps, falling objects, defective products, and many other unfortunate occurrences can lead to injury and death. If you are victimized, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering, and you should immediately seek the assistance of a Lancaster County personal injury attorney.

Not all injuries result in a lawsuit. Your attorney will review the facts of your accident to determine if it was caused by the negligence of another party and if you are entitled to compensation due to the liability of that party.

Do You Have a Case?

You have only a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit if you are injured in an accident caused by negligence, so it is critical that you do not delay before contacting a lawyer to discuss your case.  Not every accident qualifies for a personal injury award. However, if you are injured in an accident, it is advisable to immediately seek advice on your rights and options. Contact one of the experienced Lancaster County personal injury attorneys at McMahon, McMahon & Lentz to review the facts and determine if you have grounds for a lawsuit. Our attorneys are knowledgeable in relevant local case law, and your initial consultation is free.

Protect Your Rights to Compensation

Your attorney from MM&L is your only official legal contact. Do not discuss your case with the other party’s lawyer or insurance company representatives, accept any offers or sign any documents without your attorney present; you could end up relinquishing your rights without your knowledge.

Many personal injury lawsuits are settled outside of court. Your McMahon, McMahon & Lentz personal injury lawyer has the negotiation skills and experience necessary to work productively with the other party, as well as the trial experience to forcefully present your case if it does go to court.
