Moon Personal Injury Lawyers
Personal injury is a legal phrase to describe physical and mental trauma that arises due to the negligent or reckless actions of another party. This sort of behavior is characterized by the “failure to exercise the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have given under the same circumstances.”
Insurance policies do not provide enough to cover serious, catastrophic injuries, forcing individuals to take matters into their own hands and call a Chaffin Luhana personal injury lawyer for representation. With 85 years of combined experience, our attorneys have secured over $1 billion on behalf of plaintiffs.
Why File A Lawsuit?
By law, individuals harmed through little to no fault of their own can file a claim with the civil courts seeking redress for:
- Past, present, and future medical bills
- Lost wages – past, present, and future
- Less tangible estimates of pain and suffering
- Wrongful death, funeral expenses, burial costs
- Disability-related expenses like home modifications and assistive technology.

What Accident Victims Can Do
During the aftermath of sudden, serious injury, a person’s primary concern should be rehabilitation and treatment. A few other actions can strengthen a claim, should the victim wish to file a lawsuit.
Organization goes a long way, with the diligent maintenance of a file containing the police report, photographs of the damage/injuries/accident scene, copies of bills and medical records, and receipts from other expenses.
Keeping a journal of physical symptoms and emotions each day can help make the case for an accident’s impact on daily life. It is always good to make and keep all follow-up appointments with medical care providers to chart diagnosis and recovery progress.
How Much Does a Case Cost?
What We Can Do
The clock starts ticking as soon as the accident occurs, so it is advisable to speak with a personal injury attorney at once. Pennsylvania generally allows two years for a victim to file a claim for compensation, with certain exceptions for claims against the government or latent injuries.
The personal injury attorneys at Chaffin Luhana communicate with insurance companies on a client’s behalf to level the playing field and negotiate the maximum settlement. We can help clients gain access to the best medical teams in the area and offer support staff to secure the most favorable results.
While we can’t undo the damage that has occurred, we can make it a lot easier to recover, knowing those responsible for causing harm have been held to task and there is money in our clients’ pockets to afford the best possible medical care.
Initial consultations are always free, and our clients pay nothing for representation only after we win. Call today for a free case review.
