Some of these instances may truly be unavoidable accidents; the majority of them, though, are likely the result of someone’s negligence or careless acts.

Personal Injury Incidents

The human body is resilient; however, a personal injury incident can result in a myriad of injuries. Some injuries may be minor and heal on their own, like surface abrasions and cuts. In many cases, however, the injuries are much more severe. Even where recovery is possible, it can take years for an injury victim’s life to return to “normal” – if it ever does.

Common Types of Personal Injury Incidents

Personal injury incident lawsuits seek compensation from the individual whose carelessness caused or contributed to your injuries. You may be entitled to recovery of damages for injuries such as:

Broken bones/fractures

Broken bones/fractures, which can include damages for not only the cost of medical treatment and rehabilitation but also time missed from work or decreased earnings.

Spinal cord/neck/head injuries

Spinal cord/neck/head injuries ( often the most severe of any personal injury), which can include damages for medical treatment, lost past and future earnings, and any continuing home care that must be provided.

Scarring and disfigurement

Scarring and disfigurement, like that caused by fires, chemical burns, and amputations, which can include compensation for your mental suffering.

While a personal injury lawsuit cannot prevent individuals from acting carelessly, a lawsuit can provide monetary damages to compensate you for the injuries such conduct causes. Contact Cohen, Placitella & Roth, P.C. at 215-567-3500 to for a free consultation.

Investigating Personal Injuries Requires Resources

Some people believe that there is a “magic trick” to winning a personal injury lawsuit – that if they hire the attorney with the flashiest television ad, or find the “smoking gun” piece of evidence, then their lawsuit will be successful. But a successful Hazleton personal injury lawsuit is built on a foundation of a thorough investigation. By interviewing people and collecting evidence, we can formulate a plan that highlights the strengths and minimizes the impact of the weaknesses in your case.

It is usually beneficial, for instance, to identify and speak with various witnesses as part of an investigation. Eyewitness testimony – that is, testimony and statements from people who observed your incident firsthand – is very important to most personal injury cases. Identifying eyewitnesses who support your claim that the defendant acted carelessly can encourage a defendant to settle the case. Depending on your case, testimony from experts like doctors, mechanics, and engineers may be needed to explain how the defendant’s actions were careless.


A careful investigation also involves finding items of evidence to support your claims and the statements of your witnesses. For instance, photographs of an accident scene can help support your recollection of a car crash, and medical records can help prove the extent of your injuries. An experienced personal injury attorney knows that he or she needs to act quickly because in some instances important pieces of evidence can be lost or destroyed if steps are not taken to preserve them.

When you walk into a Hazleton courtroom, you do not want there to be any surprises. While you cannot predict the future with 100% accuracy, having your Hazleton personal injury attorney conduct a careful investigation can help you know the strength of your case and the likelihood of recovery before you even set foot in the courtroom.
