Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer?
It may take a few weeks for you to know for sure the extent of your injuries and if you will need a personal injury lawyer to handle your claim. However, you should still contact Fox Law Philadelphia personal injury lawyers immediately following an accident. It is best to take advantage of the free consultation we offer. We will be happy to guide you on how to proceed in the next few weeks while you are determining the extent of your injuries. If you are fortunate enough that your injuries are minor and you are symptom free in 2 weeks, then we will advise you to try to settle your case directly with the insurance company. We will also give you an idea of what is a fair offer. On the other hand, if after 2 weeks you still have unresolved aches and pains, they may be a warning sign of a more serious injury. In this case, we can help you receive a better settlement offer than you can obtain on your own. In addition to advising you on how to proceed in the weeks following an accident, there are many other issues that would benefit from a Fox Law free consultation. Most accident victims are not aware of personal injury medical benefits, liability issues, and notification to the proper parties. What you do and don’t do in the days following a personal injury claim are critical to the success of your case.
What To Do Immediately Following An Accident
7 Important Do's and Dont's
A picture tells a thousand words and can be very helpful in the successful outcome of your case. If possible, take pictures of the accident scene. Take close up photos and distance photos showing the surrounding area. A successful slip and fall personal injury claim requires proving that the owner knew or should have known of the defective condition. Pictures can provide this type of evidence. Pictures of the license plate, driver's license, insurance and registration cards are also helpful.
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Pennsylvania?
Pennsylvania statute of limitations for personal injury claims is 2 years from the date of the accident, with some exceptions. The statute may be extended, beginning when the plaintiff knew, or reasonably should have known, that an injury occurred and that it was caused by someone else’s actions. Minors are also given special consideration. For minors, the 2 year statute-of-limitations begins on the minors 18th birthday and ends on the minor’s 20th birthday. In the case of a wrongful death lawsuit, the deceased person’s family has 2 years from the date of the person’s death to file suit. Although these are the limits to your right to file a personal injury lawsuit in Pennsylvania, speaking with an attorney early on is the best way to preserve a successful claim.

"One of the best attorneys I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. After I fell and injured myself in several different parts of my body, I looked up several different attorneys, all of which asked me to refer to their website. In this instance I called Fox Law P.C., and asked to speak to John Fox. Immediately I was transferred to John Fox himself. Amazed as I was that I was even able to reach the head attorney himself on the phone, Fox Law immediately took a interest in my case, and settled within one year. Over the course of my life, I have met many attorneys and have hired many attorneys, none of which acted more professionally and with a sense of urgency, then John Fox. I highly recommend anyone who has a bodily injury accident or slip and fall accident, or any other type of a lawsuit to contact Fox Law, P.C., as you cannot find a better attorney then John. Using Fox Law P.C. is definitely a win-win for everyone involved." Larry Rudnitsky
One of the best decisions I have made in my life was to hire Attorney John Fox to represent me in a personal injury case. Attorney Fox came highly recommended to me from others within the field of Law. I was very confident from the beginning that he would expertly represent me, which he truly did! He listened, cared, and advised with understanding – recognizing what was best FOR ME, and was always available and responsive. He explained to me every step of the process and advised me of all options, leaving the final decision to me on how to proceed – which I truly appreciated. In the end, Attorney Fox stood up to the large corporation I was up against, and was able to secure me a very favorable settlement. In summary, Attorney John Fox is an excellent, experienced, knowledgeable, professional attorney who works and fights hard. He truly CARES for the people he represents! I cannot thank John Fox enough for the OUTSTANDING work he did on my behalf – simply put, HE’S THE BEST ! ~A
I was in a car accident in 2015 that required multiple forms of therapy for a period of approximately 6 months following the accident and regular appointments with a neurologist for approximately a year following the accident. John was very professional and responsive from when I first contacted him (on a Saturday) through the end of the insurance claim. The driver that hit me did not have sufficient coverage, so John had to submit an under-insured claim to my own company. I was happy with the outcome and John’s responsiveness throughout the claim. John explained everything throughout the process and we managed to settle out of court, which made the process easier on me. I would highly recommend John. Joe
I would highly recommend John Fox to represent clients in personal injury matters. Mr. Fox is an extremely intelligent, strategic and compassionate attorney who went above and beyond the call of duty for my case. Mr. Fox was responsive to my questions and timely in answering my calls and emails. I would not hesitate to retain Mr. Fox in any legal matter that you or a loved one may be faced with. Amy K., Esquire
I had the pleasure of working with the amazing team at Fox Law. Firstly, John and Laura already had so many great reviews online, it made sense that I consult with them about my car accident. During my initial consultation, I was able to explain what happened and then was given all the steps to take to ensure that I received proper medical care for my injuries. Whenever I had questions and concerns about my case, I would receive a call back (not rushed off the phone) or email reply, providing me with updates. Whenever we faced challenges, strategies were implemented to ensure that we had the best legal defense. My suggestions were welcomed without making me feel as though I was clueless about my own accident and the injuries that I sustained. My lawsuit was handled with the finest care and professionalism from the team at Fox Law, ensuring that I was fully compensated for my injuries. L. Green
The representation I received from John Fox and his entire team was absolutely wonderful. I had originally hired another law firm to take on my personal injury suit from a car accident, my original firm was not looking out for my best interest and I no longer felt comfortable with them. I decided to release them from my case and hire a new attorney. I took a leap of faith and went with the first attorney I felt had the most qualification. When I first contacted Fox Law, I spoke to John’s wife who works along side her husband. She immediately listened to my story and wanted to help. John agreed to take my case and vowed he would do what he thought was in my best interest. For a case that went nowhere for 2 years John had my case completely settled in about a year. He pushed for me to get me the best settlement possible especially for someone living in Lehigh County. John told me he knew my area well and that it is a very conservative area that doesn’t pay out much if the case went to trial. He was able to push the insurance company to settle without a trial. John continuously kept in contact with me and informed me of the progress of the case, he is friendly, professional, and most importantly he fights for his clients. I would highly recommend John Fox to anyone dealing with a personal injury. You will receive excellent representation by this law firm! Lexi Miletto
