Frequently Asked Questions

What Are the Common Types of Personal Injury Cases in Allentown?

Many types of cases fall under the banner of personal injury law. The common denominator is that the plaintiff has suffered some sort of injury or physical harm as a result of the negligence of the defendant (either a person or an organization). Usually, this physical harm carries such consequences as medical expenses, lost earnings (present and future), ongoing disability, and the emotional impacts of pain and suffering.

Examples of incidents that often give rise to personal injury lawsuits in Allentown include:

  • Car or truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Accidents caused by a drunk driver
  • Slip/Trip-and-fall incidents
  • Premises liability
  • Workplace injuries
  • Construction accidents
  • Defective products
  • Medical malpractice
  • Dog bites
  • Nursing home abuse and negligence
  • Catastrophic injuries
  • Wrongful death
  • Why Should I Consult With a Personal Injury Attorney?

    Legal proceedings are complicated and governed by many different laws, rules, and regulations. Even if your case appears straightforward and the defendant's liability appears to be clear, defendants often refuse to admit their responsibility. Additionally, procedural missteps (such as failing to adhere to specific legal formalities) can jeopardize the viability of your case, potentially leading to its dismissal.

    Additionally, pursuing a personal injury case, whether through negotiations or litigation can be intimidating and is full of pitfalls for the inexperienced. You need attorneys who know how to stand up to and negotiate with the insurance companies, and if needed, file the necessary pleadings with the court, engage in discovery, participate in depositions, prepare you for cross-examination, secure your medical and other experts, and present your case to a jury.

    Hiring an experienced and knowledgeable personal injury attorney ensures you have a professional advocate on your side when you face the legal system. This not only relieves you of the burden, but also gives you the best chance of success.

    What Is a Personal Injury Case?

    A personal injury case is a lawsuit in which the plaintiff (usually a private individual) alleges that the defendant (either a company or another private individual) caused them physical harm due to negligence. This could be due to an accident, failure to maintain a property or building that caused a slip-and-fall or other injury, medical malpractice (a doctor fails to follow the standard of care and the patient suffers harm), or a product that fails and causes injury or illness.

    When Should I Call a Lawyer?

    Time is of the essence when you have suffered a personal injury. To strengthen your case and preserve crucial evidence, it is advisable to consult with an attorney at the earliest opportunity. The longer you wait, the greater the risk that important evidence could be lost or become less reliable, or that your rights may have been adversely affected. A personal injury attorney can advise you on the steps you can take shortly after the injury to set your course for the best possible outcome.

    How to Choose the Right Attorney for My Personal Injury Case?

    Prioritize competence and skill. Research whether the attorney has experience in the type of personal injury case you are facing. Look for a strong track record of successful outcomes for clients in similar cases.

    You should ask whether the lawyer is experienced with the exact type of suit you intend to bring. What was the outcome? Does the attorney have a strong track record of favorable results for clients?

    Another important factor is the interpersonal aspect. A harmonious attorney-client relationship can make the often-protracted personal injury process more bearable. Evaluate the attorney's communication style and skills during your initial consultation to ascertain whether they will be someone you can work with over an extended period.

    Always remember to check the law firm’s professional reputation. Speak to others who know them or have been represented by them if you can. Look at online reviews and industry awards or recognitions they have received.

    What Questions Will a Lawyer Answer During the First Meeting?

    For the initial consultation, you should come prepared with a list of questions to ask the attorney. An effective attorney should be able to answer your questions in a manner that helps your understanding and leaves you feeling more empowered about your legal situation.

    During this preliminary meeting, the attorney will request a thorough account of the circumstances that led to your injury, along with any supporting documentation you may have gathered. This helps them assess the viability of your case.

    The attorney will ask you to explain the accident and your injury in your own words, and will want to see any documentation you have gathered. The attorney should also be prepared to describe their approach and process in evaluating and pursuing your legal claims, as well as the fee structure for working with them.

    What Documentation Should I Provide During the Consultation?

    For your initial consultation with a personal injury attorney, it is essential to bring any relevant documentation and evidence related to your case. This may include:

  • Photographs of the accident scene or injuries or damage caused to your vehicle
  • Police reports or police incident numbers
  • Incident reports, such as ones from your workplace or location of injury
  • Medical records and bills
  • Lists of potential witnesses and their contact information
  • Insurance documentation such as auto declaration sheet, auto policy, or other information showing coverages
  • List of medical providers you have seen for your injuries
  • Contact information for any parties or their insurance companies

  • While it may not be necessary to organize these materials into a formal presentation, providing as much detail as possible will aid your attorney in understanding your case.

    When Do I Have to Start Paying Lawyers’ Fees?

    You may have heard the phrase: “No recovery, no fee.” The majority of personal injury attorneys operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that the attorney's compensation is contingent upon a successful outcome in your case, typically taking the form of a percentage of the settlement or judgment you receive. In such cases, you are not required to pay any legal fees up front, nor are you obligated to pay if the case is unsuccessful.

    However, it is crucial to verify this fee arrangement during your initial consultation. Not all law firms operate on a contingency fee basis, and even among those that do, terms may vary.

    Here at Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo, we do not receive a fee until we make a recovery for you. We also generally forward all litigation costs involved in the case and are only reimbursed those costs out of the recovery we get for you.

    What Should I Do if I Have Been Injured at Work?

    You need to ensure that you report a work injury to your employer immediately. Pennsylvania’s Workers Compensation law generally requires that a work injury be reported within only 21 days. Ensure you have a written record to confirm the injury report. In addition, document everything relating to the injury, including taking photos, obtaining contact information of witnesses, location of the incident, etc. If you belong to a union, inform your union representatives.

    Finally, if injured at work you should contact our experienced personal injury attorneys at Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo. We have decades of experience in representing injured workers throughout Pennsylvania.

    How Is Product Liability for Defective Products Established?

    Every day, Pennsylvanians are injured by defective and dangerous products. This occurs in the home, in the community, and in the workplace. At times, the manufacturer or retailer of a defective product may have issued a recall on the product. More often, there has been no formal action taken to recall the product, but it is a dangerous product nonetheless.

    Here at Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo, we have represented plaintiffs injured by defective products for over fifty years. We have the experience needed to preserve and examine the defective product, hire the necessary experts and engineers to evaluate the product, and pursue the very complicated litigation that is involved in pursuing a defective product claim.

    How Is Medical Malpractice Defined?

    Medical malpractice is negligent or unskilled treatment by a healthcare professional that deviates from the accepted medical standard of care, resulting in injury to the patient.

    Medical malpractice cases are among the most complicated personal injury cases a plaintiff can pursue. When doing so, it is important to have experienced medical malpractice attorneys in your corner. These cases usually require the involvement of multiple experts to evaluate if a case can even be brought under governing Pennsylvania law. They also generally involve lengthy and complicated litigation. Our firm has over 50 years of experience in handling medical malpractice cases, from the beginning stages of having the case evaluated by experts to the filing and pursuit of litigation through jury trial and verdict.

    How Do I Obtain Social Security Disability?

    You can apply for Social Security disability insurance benefits with the Social Security Administration. During this application process, you will be required to provide details and documentation of your disability to prove your eligibility for benefits.

    Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo has extensive experience in handling Social Security Disability claims for our clients. If your application is denied, or you want to consult with us about applying for Social Security, contact our office today for a free consultation.

    What to Do After You Are Involved in a Truck Accident?

    As in any accident, first and foremost, you must prioritize your health and well-being. Seek immediate medical attention, even if you believe your injuries are minor. Some medical issues may not be immediately apparent and could worsen if left untreated.

    If you are able and it is safe to do so, document the accident scene extensively. Capture photographs from various angles, if possible, to provide a comprehensive view of the incident. If there were witnesses, obtain their contact details, as their witness testimony could be invaluable later on.

    Anytime that police or other investigators are at the scene, provide a detailed account of the incident. Your statement will become a part of the official police report, which can be critical evidence in your case.

    Commercial trucks have been referred to as “goliaths” on the highways. Tractor trailers, rigs, dump trucks, flatbeds, and other similar commercial vehicles are significantly larger and heavier than the passenger vehicles around them. As a result, when they crash, they often cause substantial injuries and immense harm. Truck drivers and their carriers or employers are also governed by specific state and federal laws and regulations. For all of these reasons, it is important to have an experienced personal injury attorney to represent you in truck accident cases.

    What Kind of Compensation Can I Expect?

    When there is a trucking accident, the trucks usually cause immense damage to the vehicles around them and significant injuries to the occupants of those other vehicles. Our law firm is experienced in determining the coverages that are available to the truck and other vehicles involved in the accident, and ensuring that our clients pursue full and fair compensation for their injuries. Such compensation includes claims for:

  • Past medical expenses
  • Future medical expenses and care needs
  • Lost wages and earnings
  • Lost earning capacity and work life expectancy
  • Past and future pain and suffering
  • Past and future loss of enjoyment of life
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Permanent injury
