The Investigation of Your Erie, PA Car Crash Is Important

Reported car accidents are investigated by either local police departments or the Pennsylvania State Police. While law enforcement can provide valuable information about your accident, our experience has demonstrated that there is often more to learn about the cause of a crash. Accordingly, our lawyers work with private investigators, many of whom are former law enforcement professionals and insurance adjusters. Our investigators closely examine and carefully analyze the cause(s) of your accident and help us identify all potentially liable parties.

Most importantly, he understands how insurance companies work and he knows how to encourage them to settle cases for fair and just amounts.

Mr. George is a former prosecutor, assistant public defender, and military lawyer. He understands the ins and outs of the courtroom and knows how to prepare cases for trial.

Mr. Murphey has focused his practice on insurance coverage, bad faith claims, and civil litigation for over 20 years. This experience makes him uniquely qualified to obtain excellent results for clients in insurance coverage matters.
