Accomplished Erie, PA Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers Dedicated to Getting Results in the Form of Financial Compensation for Victims

In most motor vehicle accident cases, the goal of our experienced injury lawyers at Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C. is twofold.  We want to help our clients:

  • Hold the responsible party accountable for your injuries, and
  • Get the full and fair compensation necessary to help you recover and move forward.

Most insurance companies will take steps to minimize their own financial liability.  The insurance company might:

  • Challenge the cause of the accident,
  • Question the extent and impact of your injuries,
  • Try to blame your injuries on something other than the accident,
  • Claim that you failed to satisfy their procedural requirements for making a motor vehicle accident claim.

Regardless of the tactics the insurance company may use, our talented lawyers know how to counter them.  We work with the best medical, accident reconstruction and financial experts in the business so that we can put forward the strongest evidence to support your claim.  We work tirelessly to obtain full compensation for your:

  • Medical bills, including emergency room costs, hospital stays, surgeries, post-injury doctor visits, rehabilitative care and more,
  • Both your current lost wages and future lost wages if you are unable to work after your accident,
  • Physical therapy,
  • The cost of in-home modifications or in-home care if needed,
  • Pain and suffering,
  • Permanent disfigurement or disability,
  • Emotional distress,
  • And more.

Accident victims who retain an experienced accident lawyer are likely to recover an average of three times more than victims who negotiate with the insurance companies on their own.  At Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C., our experienced accident lawyers work on a contingency basis—meaning that we only recover our attorneys’ fees if we win compensation for you. Call us today to see how we can help maximize your compensation entitlement.
