Types of Cases We Handle

If your case was turned away by another attorney, or you already know that you need top-tier representation that doesn’t back down, please reach out to our team of personal injury lawyers right away.

We represent clients who need help with a variety of injury lawsuits including:

  • Car accidents: If you were hit by a reckless or negligent driver, then put us in charge of taking legal action against them and their auto insurance provider to demand the compensation you are owed.
  • Truck accidents: Thanks to our extensive years of practice experience and resources, we can confidently take truck accident claims against trucking companies that are often defended by massive insurance corporations.
  • Toxic torts: Golomb Spirt Grunfeld P.C. is one of the nation’s most experienced law firms for toxic tort cases, which involve exposure to toxic substances, such as through environmental contamination.
  • Unsafe medications: We can bring claims and lawsuits against Big Pharma corporations that sell unsafe medications and prescriptions that end up hurting patients instead of helping them recover from an illness or injury.
  • Dangerous medical devices: A poorly designed or manufactured medical device can hurt a patient more than it aids them. For example, in recent years, many metal hip implants have been recalled due to the risk of metal shavings causing metallosis.
  • Medical malpractice: It is notoriously difficult to bring a lawsuit against a medical professional or institution for negligence—unless you team up with our medical malpractice attorneys.
  • Product liability: Negligent product manufacturers should be held accountable for the harm that their products cause consumers. We can handle cases involving defective auto parts, talcum-based baby powder, unsafe infant products, and much more.
  • Nursing home neglect and abuse: Let us amplify the voice of your elderly loved one after they are victimized by neglect or abuse in a nursing home. Abuse can be physical, sexual, emotional, social, financial, and more, but we can handle all these case types.
  • Wrongful death: Did you lose a loved one to the negligence of a third party? We can file a wrongful death claim in their name and on your behalf, so you can pursue justice and compensation while still having time to grieve.

During an initial meeting, we can discuss the details of your accident and determine if we are best suited to represent your case. We work with an extensive network of lawyers, and we would be happy to put you in contact with another law firm or attorney we trust if we are not the optimal fit for the job.

Compensation in Personal Injury Claims

The money that you are owed after an accident understandably might be the most pressing thing on your mind, especially after you have received the first round of necessary medical treatments. It is common for survivors of serious accidents and their families to fall on tough financial times as a direct result of that accident.

Taking care of severe injuries is expensive, especially if continuing to go to work is not possible due to the symptoms of those injuries. Golomb Spirt Grunfeld, P.C. in Philadelphia can help you demand and pursue every last penny of compensation to offset those costs and losses as much as possible.

Compensation in a personal injury claim or lawsuit can pay for the following and more:

  • Past and future medical treatment costs, including rehabilitative therapies.
  • Wages you were unable to earn while recovering from your injury.
  • Income you will never earn due to reduced work or earning capacity.
  • Complications from permanent disabilities.
  • Physical pain and emotional suffering caused by the injury and recovery process.
  • Lessened enjoyment of life due or shortened life expectancy.

Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in PA

Pennsylvania has a two-year statute of limitation on personal injury claims. This means that you have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you may lose your right to compensation. The statute of limitations to file a claim against a government worker is 6 months. Additionally, Pennsylvania does not put a cap on damages in cases involving death and injury. The only exception to this is punitive damages, which are capped at two times the amount of actual damages.

What is the Modified Comparative Negligence Rule?

The “modified comparative negligence rule” that Pennsylvania follows allows you to pursue compensation for losses if you are less than 50% at fault for the accident that caused them. Your total compensation amount will be reduced by your percentage of fault, though.

If your fault or liability exceeds 50%, then you lose the right to pursue compensation from the defendant. This rule makes it highly important to hire a personal injury lawyer who knows strategies to keep your liability as low as possible, such as the appropriate use of concrete, tangible evidence.
