Injury Lawyer Frequently Asked Questions
- Why do I need an injury lawyer?
If you have been injured and the fault is not your own, then you need an experienced personal injury attorney to fight for you and protect your interests. Our personal injury lawyers are well-versed in injury settlements and court proceedings and will negotiate with the at-fault party’s insurance provider to either reach a favorable settlement or win the case. Without an injury attorney, you could put your case and yourself at risk.
- The insurance company said I don’t need an injury lawyer—is that true?
It is false. Insurance companies are in the business of making money, that is why they are so large and successful. Although their services may seemingly provide you protection, when it comes to injury compensation, they will try to protect their own interests, and those of their shareholders by refusing to pay out on claims. It is recommended that you do not speak with the insurance company until you have a professional injury attorney on your side. Don’t go up against a powerful insurance company alone; instead, have the dedicated personal injury lawyers at Rizio, Hamilton & Kane, P.C., fight for your interests and get you the compensation you deserve.
- How soon after I am injured do I have to file a lawsuit in Philadelphia?
The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Pennsylvania, including car accidents and medical malpractice, is two years. In Pennsylvania, victims have two years from the date they knew or should have known of their injury to file a lawsuit. This statute is in place to protect the integrity of witness testimony and relevant evidence and prevent victims from threatening litigation in perpetuity.
- Do I have to pay for my initial meeting with Rizio, Hamilton & Kane, P.C. lawyers?
We never charge our clients for our initial meeting, nor do we charge for anything at all unless we win money for you. Our fee is dependent on a winning verdict or a desirable settlement. If you have been injured and require legal representation, you are welcome to make an appointment and meet with our legal team without fear of hidden fees and small print.

Your first meeting with a lawyer is one of the most critical consultations you will make during the legal process, so make sure you are prepared.
Here are a few things you should bring with you when you meet with one of our attorneys:
- Pen and a pad of paper or an electronic device on which you can take notes. Many topics and questions may arise during your discussion, and you may wish to jot them down
- Medical records. Bring as many medical records as you have in your possession. Our lawyers and their staff will need to review them.
- Any documents pertaining to your case, such as police reports, photographs, witness information, and insurance information. Most of the legal process is fact collection and checking, and any relevant documents could help build a stronger case.
- Is my case big enough for a lawyer to handle?
Yes, it is! If another party has wrongfully injured you, then you are most likely legally entitled to compensation for your economic damages, like lost wages and out of pocket medical expenses and for your non-economic damages, such as your pain and suffering.

The Effects of Personal Injuries
As you can tell, personal injuries happen quite frequently in America. Unfortunately, we usually only think of the costs of these injuries in terms of financial, physical, and emotional loss, but what about national costs? According to the National Safety Council, in 2017, the U.S. experienced a reported 47.2 million injuries and 169,936 preventable deaths, which have both resulted in $1,034.6 billion in costs (Source: https://injuryfacts.nsc.org/).
Furthermore, in the same year, accidental or preventable deaths were listed as the 3rd leading cause of death in the USA, just behind cancer and heart disease. Accidental deaths account for over 6% of recorded deaths in 2017 (Source: https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr68/nvsr68_09-508.pdf. For many of the accidents that made up that concerning percentage, legal action could have been taken by the victims’ families or loved ones for wrongful death and other injury claims.
