Protect Yourself and Your Rights

Challenges following an auto accident include dealing with insurance companies, handling extensive paperwork and trying to get a fair settlement for your losses. Most individuals are not equipped to deal with these details, and can easily be taken advantage of by insurance companies who want to give you as little as possible. Remember, the insurance companies have experienced auto accident attorneys working for them. That’s why professional legal help is your best protection.

Expertise and Inside Knowledge to Obtain Maximum Settlements

Having worked for almost 10 years for an automobile insurance company and for an accident defense firm, Philadelphia personal injury & car accident lawyer Edith Pearce uses her expert knowledge from inside the industry to help you recover maximum compensation. Edith Pearce, the founder of The Pearce Law Firm is a lifetime member of the multi-million dollar advocates forum and has been awarded the prestigious Super Lawyers® designation. The Pearce Law Firm will fight to recover your expenses, replace income and make sure that your losses, your suffering, your property damage and your injuries are adequately compensated.

Unlike the huge firms with dozens of attorneys and many different attorneys handling different aspects of your case, car accident lawyer Edith Pearce is personally involved in every case the firm handles from start to finish. She genuinely cares about her clients and you will not be treated like just another case or file. The firm uses a combination of aggressive discovery, site visits, witness interviews, close examination of medical records, and the assistance of medical and engineering experts to provide clients with state-of-the-art legal representation to arrive at a timely settlement or proceed to trial to obtain full and fair compensation.


Damages that an auto accident victim and the victim’s family are entitled to recover may include: hospital and medical expenses; past and future lost earnings; past and future permanent physical disability, such as a limp, scars, loss of a limb; emotional distress, such as depression and anxiety; grief and emotional suffering caused by the death of a loved one; loss of love and companionship caused by the death of a loved one; damage or destruction of property; physical pain and suffering; loss of enjoyment of life. To protect your legal rights following a serious auto accident injury or death due to a car accident, it is wise to consult a personal injury law firm with experience in these matters as soon as possible. Within the first week, important physical evidence can be lost, and witnesses may become hard to find. The Pearce Law Firm handles cases throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

 The Compensation You Deserve

Damages that can be awarded include: Medical, hospital and doctor bills, loss of income, property damage, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life and other awards, depending on the seriousness of the injuries and their short-term and long-term consequences. Many times an injury will cause a pre-existing condition (such as an old back injury) to be aggravated, causing greater pain and suffering than before. Sometimes an injury does not appear serious at first, but may continue to cause pain and disability. The Pearce Law Firm will work diligently to arrive at a timely settlement or proceed to trial to obtain the compensation you deserve.

We are dedicated to protecting your rights and obtaining full and fair compensation for you.

Yet, she was very tough with the insurance company. She was very thorough in getting all the medical bills paid. My mother received a settlement that I could not have imagined.”
