Law Offices of George J. Costopoulos

Personal Injury

Representing Pennsylvania personal injury victims

Personal injury cases arise when an individual is injured due to the negligent or intentional actions of another person or group. Victims of personal injury may be entitled to financial compensation for their medical and property expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, permanent injury and other losses.

Our firm is dedicated to representing clients with personal injury claims, including victims of automobile, trucking and motorcycle accidents, unsafe premises, dangerous and unsafe products, professional malpractice and other types of negligence. On behalf of our clients, we effectively negotiate with insurance companies and aggressively pursue the legal rights and remedies available to personal injury victims.

Our office handles all personal injury cases on a contingency basis, which means our clients pay nothing for our legal services unless we achieve a recovery on their behalf. For a free case evaluation and initial consultation, please contact our office at your convenience.

How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

A: If you sustained a bodily injury due to another’s fault, you may have a personal injury claim for which you can seek monetary compensation.  Examples of personal injury cases include motor vehicle accidents, defective prodcuts, fall down incidents and medical malpractice.


What should I do to protect my rights if injured?

A: There are a number of things you can do to strengthen your right to pursue compensation for an injury due to another’s fault.  For example, it is always a good idea to: (1) write down as much as you can about the accident, your injuries and any other losses; (2) take photographs of your property damage and injures; (3) keep receipts of any out-of-pocket expenses; (4) identify people who witnessed the accident; and (5) contact a personal injury attorney to evaluate your situation.

What kind of compensation am I entitled to if injured?

A: If injured due to another’s fault, you may be entitled to compensation for “damages” including property loss, bodily injury, disfigurement, disability, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, out-of-pocket expenses, and other losses.

How soon do I have to file a lawsuit?

A: In Pennsylvania, there is a deadline to file a personal injury lawsuit known as the “statute of limitations.”  If you miss this deadline, your claim may be forever lost.  As a result, it is imperative that you speak with an attorney as soon as you realize you are injured.

Can I afford to hire a personal injury attorney?

A: The Law Office of George J. Costopoulos does not charge a “retainer” or any up front fees in personal injury cases.  Instead, we charge on a contingency fee basis, which means our office only gets paid if we are successful in obtaining a recovery for our personal injury clients.
