Springfield Personal Injuries

Springfield is an incorporated township that sits just a few miles east outside Philadelphia’s city limits and is a 10-minute trip to downtown—depending on traffic. Most of the town is made of neighborhoods that house its 25,000 people.

Some of those work locally at one of the many schools or the Springfield Hospital or at one of the many retail outlets in the town. Others commute to jobs in nearby communities and in Philadelphia. Springfield residents are on the go and active which makes them susceptible to personal injuries.

>Springfield Car Accidents

The majority of personal injuries suffered by residents of Springfield are caused by a car accident, and when that happens, you need the best. The people of Springfield spend a lot of time in their cars and thus are at risk for injury.

A typical commuter might spend hours a week on I-476 or I-95 back and forth to work. Getting around town to go shopping or run errands puts residents out on the busy streets where accidents happen every day. The more time spent in the car, the more risk there is of getting injured.

Accidents happen in many ways, and when someone is injured, they need someone who is experienced in all types of accidents to adequately represent them. The people of Springfield have trusted the Pearce Law Firm, P.C., to represent them in all types of accidents. Some of the most common are:

  • DUI: Impaired driving leads to severe injury and fatalities for many innocent drivers each year.
  • Rollover/Ejection Accidents: These can bring some of the most severe injuries.
  • Head-On/Wrong Way Driving: Unfortunately, this is the deadliest type of accident and can happen on just about any road.
  • Large Trucks/Utility Vehicles: When someone is injured by a commercial truck, they are up against companies with a lot of resources and the best attorneys. You need an experienced attorney to represent you.
  • Speeding/Racing/Aggressive Driving: Most of the drivers that engage in this type if driving are younger male drivers who put others at risk by their actions.

>Common Types of Injuries

There are many ways to get hurt and even many types of car accidents. Over time, there are some injuries that become common to Springfield motorists, and it takes an experienced attorney to be able to recognize how the different accidents and injury types affect someone’s personal injury case. The attorneys at the Pearce Law Firm, P.C., have that experience and knowledge to understand how best to proceed.

That’s because at Pearce Law Firm, P.C., they look at the circumstances of each accident, including the type of injury, how it happened, and what it will take to get the best result for their client. These types of injuries take special skill and experience:

  • Head Injuries: Auto accidents, sports, and industrial injuries can cause concussions and traumatic brain injuries that can be devastating.
  • Broken bones: Broken arms, legs, wrists, and ribs are all common injuries that people face when engaging in daily activities. All of these require treatment, rehabilitation and run the risk of downtime from work.
  • Disease: Some types of work, especially in construction and manufacturing, put people at risk of disease.
  • Blunt Force Trauma: When cars and people collide, the impact can be violent and cause blunt force trauma injuries that can cause severe injuries or even death.
  • Fatalities: Sometimes these injuries cause death, and when they do, there could be a claim for wrongful death.
  • Product Liability: Shopping the many retail outlets in Springfield or ordering from stores like Amazon or Target Online, brings a lot of goods into the hands of Springfield residents. This sometimes results in injuries that are the fault of the designer, producer of the packager.

If you have been the unfortunate victim of a car accident in Springfield you need to file a personal injury claim against the negligent driver. Irrespective of whether your injuries are life changing or short term, you face some degree of suffering, pain and discomfort from an accident that was not your fault. You have a right to be compensated for losses.

Apart from the physical suffering, you may have also undergone emotional trauma. You also face significant financial burden. First, there is the question of paying for medical treatment to address your injuries. There may be rehabilitation involved to get you back to normalcy so you can resume work. There is also the loss of pay you sustain because the injuries prevent you from going to work over the short or long term. Our experienced attorneys will look at your current needs as well as your future needs when determining the dollar amount you need to be compensated for.

Understanding Compensatory Damages In Your Car Accident Case

When you call us, we will talk to you about the kind of damages you can hope to recover from the insurance company. One of these is ”compensatory damages.” What this means is that these are the damages that compensate for what was lost by you because of the accident. This encompasses all the “losses” you sustain- those that have a clear monetary value and those that don’t. For example, the laptop on the seat of your car has been damaged beyond repair in the accident and the damages may cover the price of a new laptop. Or if you sustained a fracture in the accident, the damages may cover the cost of medical treatment and rehab to regain full use of the broken limb. However, we go beyond the obvious. What about your pain and suffering? What about your emotional distress from the accident? What if you need to hire someone to help you with your medical care in your house? We will look at all your damages to try and make you whole.

We will look at all of the following when we research your Springfield car accident case:

  • Medical treatment – covering what you have already spent and what you expect to pay to recover from the injuries arising from the car accident.
  • Earnings loss – Covering the loss of income you bear because the accident has rendered you incapable of working for a specific period.
  • Loss of property – Your luggage, clothing or any damages sustained to your property because of the accident. This could be the cost of repairing or replacing your car or the cost of replacing anything you owned that was damaged in the accident.
  • Your physical/ emotional pain and suffering – Even though it is a challenge to place a monetary value on this, you can claim damages for pain and suffering, both physical and emotional. It is very common for car accident victims to feel intense emotional stress every time they get in a car after their accident.

All of this information is meant to show you that your car accident case is not an open and shut issue. There are numerous facets that must be considered by an experienced attorney in order to get you just compensation.
