Although the hospital for which this neighborhood was named has been closed for some time, Graduate Hospital is still a busy area of Philadelphia being home to 22 churches and hundreds of nineteenth-century and twentieth-century row houses, as well as restaurants and shops.
There are thousands of people who live in this neighborhood and sadly, at some point during their lives, many will become the victims of personal injury accidents.

With thousands of cars on the road in Philadelphia every single day, it’s hardly a surprise that accidents happen. But what does come as a surprise for those who are involved in the accident is that the insurance policies may not be enough to cover any injuries that occur.
In Pennsylvania, drivers must only have $5,000 in medical benefits coverage which is hardly anything when you look at how much the common injuries sustained in a car accident cost. For example:
- A broken bone in the wrist can cost as much as $3,500 if the correction is non-surgical. If surgery is required, the cost may add up to tens of thousands.
- A brain injury in the first year after the accident can reach as much as $300,000 and over a lifetime more than $3 million.
- Medical care for damage to the spine or spinal cord averages between $350,000 and $1 million in the first year alone and typically requires lifelong care.
Once the policy limit has been met, the insurance company will simply stop paying, leaving the injured to fend for themselves.
However, if another driver caused the accident, their victims have the right to pursue legal action against them and our law firm can help. Contact us as soon as possible to learn more about how we can assist you.

Did you know that under the law, property owners must do everything that is reasonable to find and repair any hazards that exist on their property, such as:
- snow and ice
- spilled liquids
- broken steps or handrails
- broken sidewalks
- loose carpets
If the property owner, or a party they put in charge of managing the property, fail to discover a hazard and either repair it or place warning signs around it and a visitor is harmed as a result, that visitor may be able to file a lawsuit to regain any losses they sustain.
Pursuing a lawsuit and proving that the defendant knew, or should have known about the dangerous conditions on the property can be quite complicated and difficult which is why it’s best to contact an attorney as quickly as possible after an accident has happened. This way, evidence can be collected quickly and the case can be built.

Fighting For The Best Compensation Possible For Clients
Decades Of Experience
With the recent growth in Graduate Hospital, it’s no surprise that the construction industry has a large presence in this neighborhood. However, there is a push for the work to be done as quickly as possible which means that more often than not, construction company owners are ignoring safety standards and asking employees to work for long hours leading to exhaustion.
When accidents happen, and they do, our law firm can help in many ways. From the very beginning, we can identify the responsible party, help the client understand all of their legal options, assist with filing workers’ compensation and a construction accident lawsuit, and speak with the insurance companies.
It is possible to file for both workers’ compensation and file a lawsuit, depending on the circumstances. In fact, given the fact that workers’ comp will only cover medical expenses and a fraction of lost wages, choosing to pursue both options may be the only way to obtain full compensation for all losses.
