    How Can I Start With Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo for My Personal Injury Case?

    Initiating your personal injury case with our firm is a straightforward process. Simply reach out to us via telephone or complete our expedient online contact form. Upon receiving your inquiry, we will promptly begin preparing the necessary documentation and collecting essential information to strategically position your case for a favorable outcome.

    What Is a Personal Injury Case?

    A personal injury case involves a legal action where a plaintiff sues a defendant for having caused them bodily harm due to negligence or malice. The defendant could be a person or a company. The bodily harm could take almost any form — breaks or sprains, burns, illness, trauma, electrocution, chemical injuries, etc. The plaintiff must prove that the defendant’s actions led directly to the injury.

    If successful in their legal claim, the plaintiff may be entitled to financial compensation covering medical expenses, lost wages, diminished earning potential, as well as punitive damages intended to compensate for pain and suffering.

    When Should I Call a Lawyer?

    The best practice is to call a lawyer as soon as possible after the accident or incident. As soon as you become aware that you have a personal injury for which a liable party was responsible, reach out to a qualified personal injury attorney or law firm. Quick acting may help preserve evidence and afford you the proper counsel at a crucial time, so you do not make any mistakes that could jeopardize the validity of your suit.

    What Kind of Compensation Can I Expect?

    The size and nature of the settlement can vary widely based on several factors. These factors include the medical expenses incurred, severity and permanence or impermanence of the injuries, lost wages, loss of future earning potential, emotional trauma, and future care needs. The more grievous the circumstances, the stronger the justification for a more substantial settlement.

    Additionally, you may be eligible for various categories of compensation, including pain and suffering, lost wages or earning potential, medical expenses, expected medical expenses, and possible punitive damages.

    For a tailored evaluation of what you may anticipate in your specific situation, we recommend contacting our firm for a comprehensive consultation.

    How Do I Decide Which Lawyer Is Right for Me?

    Conduct thorough research—knowledgeable clients often find themselves on the path to successful outcomes. As you consider personal injury attorneys, look into their online reviews, reputation among professional organizations, awards garnered, and — most importantly — their track record of success.

    What is their rate of successful case resolutions? How many clients have they effectively represented, and what is the cumulative sum of financial compensation they have secured?

    Equally important is the personal rapport you establish with your prospective legal team. You may be working with this attorney for a while. It is advisable to meet the legal team in person to assess the compatibility and the dynamics. Determine whether the team fosters an environment that simplifies the legal process and alleviates any intimidation you may feel.

    What Questions Will a Lawyer Answer During the First Meeting?

    When you first meet a personal injury attorney, anticipate a comprehensive discussion covering various facets of your case. Expect to discuss the circumstances of the injury, the potential outcomes, the nature of the legal process, and the law firm’s fee structure.

    We encourage you to be proactive during this initial consultation. Legal professionals are best equipped to provide valuable insights when you come prepared with a series of pertinent questions. Don't hesitate to subject the attorney to rigorous inquiry—if they are competent, they will not only withstand the scrutiny but welcome it.

    What Information Should I Bring to My First Consultation?

    The consultation will go more smoothly if you bring all the relevant documentation you can. This information might include medical records, accident or incident reports, photographs, witness contact information, insurance correspondence, and other appropriate paperwork. Anything you can bring will help the attorney clarify your case and give you an accurate idea of the potential outcomes.

    When Do I Have to Start Paying Lawyers’ Fees?

    Typically, you will only be required to pay legal fees upon the successful resolution of your case, as many personal injury attorneys work on a contingency basis. In such an arrangement, the attorney's compensation is derived from a percentage of the settlement you receive. If no settlement is secured, generally no fees are owed, thereby incentivizing the attorney to selectively engage with cases they are confident in winning and to diligently pursue favorable outcomes.

    What Should I Do if I Receive an Injury at Work?

    First and foremost, report the injury to your employer immediately. Failing to promptly document the incident with your employer could negatively affect any future legal or compensation claims. Pennsylvania’s Workers’ Compensation law requires that a work injury be reported within 21 days of occurring. Do your best to document the scene as thoroughly as you can, including taking photos, obtaining contact information from witnesses, notating location details, etc. If you belong to a union, let your union representative know about the incident as well. Finally, reach out to the experienced personal injury attorneys Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo, and let us put our decades of experience to work for you.

    How Is Product Liability for Defective Products Established?

    Each day, individuals in Pennsylvania sustain injuries due to flawed and hazardous products, whether it happens in their homes, communities, or workplaces. On some occasions, the manufacturer or seller of these faulty items may have issued an official recall. More often than not, no such formal action has been taken, even though the product poses a significant risk.

    At Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo, we've been advocating for plaintiffs injured by defective products for over five decades. With our extensive experience, we possess the knowledge and skills required to safeguard and thoroughly assess these flawed products. We engage the necessary experts and engineers to conduct thorough evaluations and navigate the intricate legal procedures entailed in pursuing claims related to defective products.

    How Is Medical Malpractice Defined?

    Medical malpractice involves healthcare professionals providing negligent or substandard treatment that deviates from the accepted medical standard of care, resulting in harm to the patient.

    Medical malpractice claims are some of the most intricate personal injury cases a plaintiff may pursue. To navigate this complexity, it's crucial to have skilled medical malpractice attorneys on your side. These cases often necessitate the expertise of multiple professionals to determine if a claim can even be made within the framework of Pennsylvania law. Furthermore, they typically entail protracted and intricate legal proceedings.

    Our firm boasts a wealth of experience, spanning over 50 years, in handling medical malpractice cases. This includes the initial evaluation of cases by experts, the subsequent filing of claims, and the tireless pursuit of litigation through jury trials to reach a verdict.

    How Do I Obtain Social Security Disability?

    You can apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits through the Social Security Administration. You will be asked to provide information and supporting documentation that substantiates your eligibility for benefits.

    At Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo, we possess a wealth of experience in effectively managing Social Security Disability claims on behalf of our clients. Whether your initial application is denied, or you wish to seek our guidance regarding the SSDI application process, please don't hesitate to get in touch with our office. Schedule a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss your situation and explore your options.

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

    The immediate priority is your safety and well-being. In the aftermath of a severe truck accident, it is important to seek immediate medical attention right away. Even if your condition is stable, a medical evaluation is essential as certain injuries may not manifest immediate symptoms but can have grave repercussions if not detected and treated promptly. Additionally, seeking immediate medical attention serves to officially document the nature and extent of any injuries you may have sustained.

    If it is safe to do so, diligently document the accident scene. Capture comprehensive photographic evidence from multiple angles, capturing the condition of the vehicles involved, road signs, and any skid marks or debris. Should there be any witnesses to the event, obtain their contact details without hesitation, as their testimony could be invaluable to your case.

    Ensure that you speak with law enforcement officials and give a detailed statement of the incident for the police report. This report can serve as a crucial piece of evidence when establishing the facts of the case.

    As soon as your medical condition has been stabilized, it is highly advisable to consult a personal injury attorney at Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo with the utmost urgency. Legal representation can offer crucial guidance and take necessary actions to protect your interests, particularly in the complex legal landscape that often accompanies truck accidents.
