Personal Injury

Experienced Representation When You Need It Most

When you or someone you love has suffered personal injury due to another's negligence, it can be difficult to pursue a legal claim on your own. At Worth, Magee & Fisher, we help clients throughout the Lehigh Valley pursue maximum compensation for their injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

With more than 30 years of trial experience, our Allentown personal injury lawyers, led by Robert J. Magee, have kept up to date on the particulars of Pennsylvania personal injury law, including specific regulations governing limited and full tort insurance in automobile accidents. We are aggressive advocates for clients with claims involving:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
    • Car accidents
    • Tractor-trailer accidents
    • Motorcycle accidents
    • Underinsured/uninsured motorist claims
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Accidents caused by negligent property maintenance (known as "premises liability" claims)
  • Defective products (called "products liability" claims)
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Police brutality and misconduct, including "open carry" gun cases
  • Construction site accidents and other work-related accidents
  • Wrongful death and survival actions

We explore all available avenues of compensation for our clients, including pursuing general personal injury claims, workers' compensation for on-the-job accidents, as well as other means of financial assistance such as Social Security Disability.

Though many cases can be settled through aggressive negotiation, we are fully prepared to take matters to court if it means protecting your rights to full and fair compensation. All injury-related claims are handled on a contingent-fee basis, meaning we charge no attorneys' fees or costs unless and until we successfully recover compensation for you.

Understanding Workers' Compensation In Pennsylvania

In general, workers' compensation provides benefits for the medical care and lost wages caused by an on-the-job injury or work-related illness. Additional benefits may also be available for specific loss and permanent injuries, or the wrongful death of a loved one in a work-related accident.

However, specific rules apply when applying for and retaining workers' compensation. Many clients seek our help after their initial applications were denied, or their benefits were suddenly reduced or terminated altogether.

Workers' compensation does not provide benefits for pain and suffering. We therefore assist clients in pursuing independent personal injury claims against third parties who may have been at least partially responsible for the work accident to recover maximum compensation.
