Despite a number of technological advances supposedly designed to prevent car accidents and make vehicles safer, car accidents happen every day. When a car accident causes the driver or passengers to suffer serious injuries, the emotional and physical toll caused by the accident can be extremely overwhelming. Unfortunately, establishing liability after a serious car accident that causes injuries can be much more complex than it may initially appear. Negligent drivers frequently deny responsibility for a crash that they have caused, and the insurance companies may even accuse you of contributing to the cause of the accident.
At Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C., our skilled car accident lawyers understand that even a “simple” accident can create substantial difficulties for the injured parties. Regardless of the type of car accident in which you were involved, the law in Erie County allows you to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and even pain and suffering when another person’s careless driving caused the accident. Our lawyers can help maximize the compensation that you are eventually awarded by putting in the hard work necessary to develop a strong body of evidence to establish the at-fault party’s liability for the accident. Call us today to see how we can help in your case.

Erie County, which was named for Lake Erie, is one of the largest counties in Pennsylvania. Originally settled in the early 1800s, a large portion of Erie County was taken from Allegheny County. In the late 1700s, significant disputes arose as to whether Erie County belonged to New York or Pennsylvania and required the federal government’s intervention to resolve. Today, Erie County is the 11th most highly populated municipality in the state of Pennsylvania and is home to about 280,566 residents. A number of major highways cross through Erie County, including I-79, I-86, and I-90.
FAQ: How is the value of my car accident case determined in Erie County? +
The value of the compensation that may be available in your case depends upon the overall strength of the case, which is influenced by a number of different factors. The overall severity of your injuries will be a primary factor in determining how much compensation you may eventually be entitled to receive—if your injuries are especially severe and/or it is anticipated that those injuries will be permanent, the value of your case will likely be higher. The strength of the evidence against the negligent driver who caused the accident will also be important, especially in a car accident case in which we pursue compensation outside of the insurance system. Importantly, our firm handles all types of car accident cases and we can help you understand the monetary value of your specific case.
FAQ: The at-fault driver’s insurance company has asked for access to my medical records so that they can form a settlement offer. Should I provide them with access? +
Before giving anyone access to your medical records after a car accident, you should first speak to an experienced car accident lawyer. Allowing the insurance adjuster unfettered access to your medical information can harm your case in ways that may initially be difficult to anticipate—in other words, the insurance company may use the information contained in your medical records against you to minimize their own financial liability. Our lawyers will first evaluate your case and determine the medical information that it is appropriate to share in order to protect your best interests.
Were you involved in a car accident on a road or highway in Pennsylvania? You should read this book BEFORE you talk to an insurance adjustor and BEFORE you talk to a lawyer! If an insurance adjustor is calling you and wants you to sign just a few forms, or just wants to talk to you on the phone because he’s concerned about you, you definitely need this book now.
