Wallingford Car Accident Attorney

Wallingford is an unincorporated community located in Nether Providence Township, in Delaware County about 10 miles west and a little south of Philadelphia. There are around 9,000 people in Wallingford, but most locals refer to Wallingford when anyone lives in the township. Wallingford is one of the oldest communities having originally been established in 1687.

The majority of the community is made of neighborhoods like South Wallingford, Bowling Green, Ridgewood, Pendlehill, and East Wallingford. Wallingford people are on the go with many commuting the 15 miles into Philadelphia taking the Blue Route (I-476) south to 95 and on into South Philly. Others work in one of the many surrounding communities of Philadelphia or go across the Delaware River into New Jersey.

Still others stay local and work in one of the hospitals, schools, or retail shops. Either way, this puts the people of Wallingford on the roads and at risk of personal injury.

Types of Accidents

The number one way Wallingford residents get injured is in an auto accident. However, an unfortunate fact of life is that people get injured doing just about everything. When an injury happens, it may not seem important to the injured person how they were hurt, but it turns out it does make a difference when trying to get compensation for the injury.

The attorney who brings a claim for compensation needs to be experienced in all types of injuries and work with all agencies, companies, and insurance sources to get the right compensation.

The people of Wallingford have trusted the Pearce Law Firm, P.C., to do just that for all types of accidents, some of the common being:

  • Industrial accidents
  • Slip-and-fall/Premises Injuries
  • Sport/Recreation Injuries
  • Product Liability
  • Wrongful deaths

Common Types of Injuries

Just as the way someone is injured can make a difference, so can the type of injury. Someone suffering from a brain injury that is affecting cognitive functions is much different than a broken rib or collar bone. Each type can sideline someone and require medical treatment, but the needs of the person suffering a head trauma are going to be significantly different than a broken bone.

The attorneys at Pearce Law Firm, P.C., 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 Wallingford or ordering from stores like Amazon or Target Online, brings a lot of goods into the hands of Wallingford residents. This sometimes results in injuries that are the fault of the designer, producer of the packager.

When you have been in an accident, all you want to do is recover what is fair and move on. However, sometimes forces will conspire to stand in your way. When that happens, you need a competent legal professional who will fight for what you are owed. The Wallingford, PA personal injury attorneys at The Pearce Law Firm, P.C. have a long history of success that we are happy to put to work for you.

Economic and Non-Economic Damages
Personal injury law makes up more than three-quarters of the lawsuits brought in the U.S. each year, with 95% settling before trial. Even though only 5% of cases go to trial, every case needs strong, determined representation – insurance companies and defendants trying not to admit fault are not inclined to offer fair settlements out of pure altruism.

Insurance companies are businesses, and they need to turn a profit. Paying out large sums of money to injured victims does not help their profits. While most players in the industry deal fairly and appropriately with accident victims, sometimes there may simply be an honest difference of opinion about how much money, if any, is owed to a victim. Pushing back may work in your favor.

You may be able to recover for not only your physical injuries and/or property damage, but also for other expenses. Recoveries very often include:

  • Medical bills and future medical expenses (if able to be estimated);
  • Lost wages and earning capacity;
  • Household services such as a home health aid (if you are disabled, you may have to hire help for yourself or to handle the day-to-day running of your home);
  • Loss of consortium (deprivation of normal marital relations); and
  • Pain and suffering, depending on the cause of action.

Remember The Details

When you engage the services of The Pearce Law Firm, P.C., you can trust us to be aware of the little details that might escape notice. For example, we know that in Pennsylvania, drivers have a choice of “limited tort” or “full tort” insurance. If limited tort is chosen, unless the accident causes a serious injury to you, your insurance company will pay your lost wages and medical bills, and the other driver’s will pay theirs. You will not be able to receive pain and suffering or other non-economic damages if you chose limited tort for non-serious injuries. You can only recover against the other driver and bring a lawsuit if you suffered a “serious injury.” There are also other exceptions to limited tort. You need to talk with an experienced attorney who can determine whether you have a viable claim.

Another important detail is the statute of limitations. A statute of limitations is a law that sets a maximum time limit for filing a lawsuit, and they are necessary because after certain periods of time, memories begin to fail. It is simply not practical to permit lawsuits to be brought after years have passed, because it would often descend into a “he said, she said” situation. In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations on most personal injury claims is two years, meaning that you have two years from the date of your accident to file suit against the defendant or defendants who caused the accident.. Beyond that, your claim will be barred (prevented from going forward).
