Experienced Philadelphia Personal Injury Lawyer
Our Philadelphia law office is conveniently located in the city of Philadelphia which is the largest city in Pennsylvania with an estimated population of 1,560,297. It is the seat of its own county. Philadelphia is best known for its famous residents of colonial era days, William Penn and Benjamin Franklin and for being the meeting place for the Founding Fathers of The United states who signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Currently we are well known for our cheesesteaks, hoagies, loyal sports fans and appreciation of good food from a variety of cultures and ethnicities who have settled here. Whats less well known is that 32% of its motorists are driving uninsured motor vehicles. We handle all types of personal injury cases that happen in Philadelphia including auto accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, SEPTA accidents, tour bus accidents, motorcycle accidents, work accidents, train accidents, slip and fall accidents, construction related accidents, medical malpractice, baby birth injuries, drug injuries and wrongful death.

What Must Be Proven In Your Personal Injury Case?
You must establish every element of your claim for it to be successful. Those four elements constitute Negligence which must be proven against the responsible party(s) by a preponderance of evidence to prove your case. Here are the basic elements required to prove negligence in any personal injury case:
Duty: First, in order for a claim to arise a duty is owed by the individual who caused the victim to be injured. One owes a duty of due care to a pedestrian crossing the road.
Breach: In order for the negligence action to be valid the party who owed a duty of due care to the victim must have breached the duty owed to the victim. This breach can be characterized as a failure to exercise due care due to recklessness and carelessness toward the safety of another person.
Damages: These include property damages, medical costs of injury, pain and suffering and past, present and future lost wages.
Causation: The injured victim known as the plaintiff in a lawsuit must prove by a preponderance of the evidence of the factual and legal cause of his/her injuries.

What Steps Should I take If I believe I Have a Personal Injury Case?
Our personal injury lawyers recommend Pennsylvania personal injury victims take these important initial steps if you believe that you have been injured because of the negligence of others. First, if it is a slip and fall, document the incident and make sure it is reported to the property owner and police if possible at the time. If you are in a motor vehicle accident of any type, Pennsylvania law pursuant to 75 Pa. Cons. Stat.section 3746, states in a nutshell that your accident should be immediately and quickly reported to the police when there is an injury or death or when the vehicle is immobile or too dangerous to be moved. If a police officer does not show up as as required by section 3746 to investigate and file a report, what should you do? Section 3747 requires that the driver or owner must take the responsibility to file their own report. This must be submitted in writing within five (5) days of the accident.
Helpful To Gather as Much Information As Soon As Possible And Take Photographs
On any personal injury matter make a mental note of what happened and how it happened? Was the alleged responsible party ever warned in the past that he or she was being negligent? Next, take pictures of any injuries you may have suffered. Since most folks have mobile phones which can take photos, get a picture of the defect if there is a fall or of the spilled liquid on the floor of the supermarket or shopping area. Our personal injury attorneys in the Philadelphia and Reading, Pennsylvania area also recommend that you take pictures directly after receiving injuries to show the extent to which you or your loved one suffered.
Finally, contact The Brod Law Firm to consult with one of our expert personal injury lawyers regarding your case. Remember, time is of the essence and it is possible that your attorney can gain valuable information soon after the injury that he or she might not be able to gather later.
