Auto/Motor Vehicle Accidents

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that U.S. drivers are involved in a motor vehicle accident every five seconds. A high number of these accidents result in broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, and even death. Our auto and motor vehicle accident team represents drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and cyclists who are injured in an accident as a result of someone else’s carelessness or recklessness. We regularly handle cases involving:

  • Cars
  • Trucks
  • All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs)
  • Buses
  • Large Passenger Vans
  • Motorcycles
  • School Buses
  • Trains and Mass Transit Vehicles

The attorneys at Feldman Shepherd have extensive experience in cases involving auto accidents that cause catastrophic injury. We have obtained substantial verdicts and settlements in state and federal courts as well as in uninsured/underinsured motorist arbitrations. In addition, we have a successful history of claims against municipal and state authorities for the negligent design and maintenance of highways and traffic controls, including a $31.3 million jury verdict on behalf of a man who was injured as a result of a dangerous highway. Our attorneys also secured a $26.1 million settlement (believed to be one of the largest personal injury settlements ever reported in Pennsylvania), for the survivors of a car accident after their vehicle was hit from behind by a tractor-trailer, resulting in severe and permanent injuries and one death.

We understand that accidents can be physically and emotionally traumatic. Our lawyers are here to help you recover for your pain and suffering, economic losses, emotional distress, and medical expenses. And we don’t stop there: Our attorneys and terrific paralegal staff will also help you deal with your own insurance company and the insurers of the other parties. We explain what you can expect at every step of your case. Each motor vehicle accident is different, but at Feldman Shepherd, our hard work, attention to detail, and commitment to securing justice for our clients applies to them all.
