All too often victims suffer both physically and financially due to another person's negligence. Our team is here to help change that.
— Michael Monheit, Esq.
Have you ever heard the phrase "It was just an accident"? It can be absolutely infuriating for the victim of "just an accident" to hear this because in most cases, accidents are caused by a negligent party. What's even more upsetting is that when an accident causes serious injury to the victim, they may be left with crippling debt and nowhere to turn to for help. That's where we come in.

Chester, PA 19013 - Two Police Officers Hurt On The Job
Recently, two State Troopers spending a normal day on the job pulled over an SUV after they noted the vehicle swerving while on I-95. Despite initially cooperating, the driver suddenly put the car into drive and took off, reaching speeds of up to 95 mph on the highway. The officers immediately pursued and chased the two men inside the SUV until they reached Chester where an officer attempted to stop the chase using a common maneuver. The maneuver, however, caused an accident in which the SUV ended up flipped over with the police car on top of it. Both the driver and passenger in the SUV were taken to the hospital and two police officers were also treated for injuries. Later, the police announced they had found more than 300 bags of heroine in the vehicle.

Eddystone, PA 19022 - Motorcycle Accident Leaves Rider With Serious Injuries
A man from Brookhaven recently lost control of his motorcycle and crashed, resulting in injuries to his neck and pelvis.

Chester, PA 19013 - Two Trains Collide Injuring Those On Board
Two CSX freight trains collided head-on causing injuries to multiple workers who were on each train. The collision occurred at Concord Road and Bethel Road and some of the products being carried spilled onto the tracks, resulting in the need for the EPA to send a hazmat team to clean up the spill.
Can I File A Lawsuit Even If The Police Pressed Charges?
Yes. Even if the police have pressed criminal charges, it is still possible to pursue a civil lawsuit. These are two completely separate legal actions and even if the defendant is found guilty, criminal charges will never provide compensation for the plaintiff.
