When a person has been injured significantly in a motor vehicle accident or due to a doctor’s mistake, he or she often learns quickly that the insurance company that is supposed to help is working to limit compensation. The clear goal of the insurance company is to limit financial exposure regardless of the extent of your injuries. This is one reason why it is very important to retain a personal injury lawyer if you have been injured.
An experienced, aggressive Montgomery County, Pennsylvania trial lawyer who understands how to deal with insurance companies and who won’t be intimidated by insurers’ tactics can help you maximize your compensation.
Compensation in a car, truck or motorcycle accident that was caused by another’s mistake, carelessness or negligence can include:
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Future medical care
- Retrofitting vans and homes so they are disability-friendly
- Death and or funeral benefits
As a former prosecutor with the Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, District Attorney’s Office, I have extensive experience as a tough litigator and effective negotiator. I have helped clients receive the compensation that is rightfully theirs in medical malpractice and personal injury cases that have been litigated in Philadelphia and in the Montgomery County PA area.
Lawyers for the insurance companies can sense when an attorney is hesitant to go to trial, and will be less inclined to make the best monetary offer to settle a case. With my background as a prosecutor and trial lawyer, as well as my effective courtroom demeanor and thorough preparation, insurance companies know they are dealing with someone who can and will vigorously represent, defend and protect his clients’ rights. If necessary, I collaborate with the six other attorneys in my office on complicated civil personal injury cases.
I have handled a wide spectrum of personal injury cases for clients, including:
- Car accidents, truck accidents and other motor vehicle accidents
- Serious injury cases such as whiplash, brain injury, birth injuries and other catastrophic injuries
- Medical malpractice including surgical errors, birth defects and failure to diagnose cancer
- Nursing home negligence (including abuse, neglect, elopement, dehydration and choking cases)
- Wrongful death

Liability In Pennsylvania Traffic Accidents

In many traffic accident cases, such as in construction zone accidents or hazardous roadway accidents, there may be only one vehicle involved but entities may be at fault. These entities can be the construction companies themselves and local government or municipalities.
Montgomery County Accident Lawyer Erik Petersen will identify all liable parties and make them accountable for your injuries. This will allow you to rest easy as you will know your rights are protected and that he has your best interest in mind.
