Have you been involved in a car accident?
If so, you are among the millions of Americans each year that have been affected by careless or negligent drivers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every ten seconds someone in the United States is involved in an automobile accident. You are not alone. Of the estimated 5,973,000 police reported traffic accidents in 2006, 38,588 people were killed and 1,746,000 were injured. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of injury-related death for people between the ages of 1 and 34 in the United States. More startling still, 41% of all traffic accidents reported in 2006 were alcohol related.
At Fiore & Barber, LLC we will use our experience to investigate every possible contributing cause of an accident to determine responsibility and negligence and ensure that you receive not only medical attention for your injuries, but full compensation for your injuries and pain and suffering.

YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES IF YOU ARE INVOLVED IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT:
If you are involved in an accident in which a person is injured or there is damage to the vehicles or other property, you must stop, call the police and give information and assistance. There are criminal penalties, including fines and imprisonment, if you do not stop at the scene of an accident in which you are involved. Your first duty is to render assistance to anyone injured in the accident, if you are able. You must then notify the nearest police station. You are required to give your name, address, automobile registration number and upon request, show your insurance or financial responsibility information and your driver’s license. If the police do not investigate at the scene of the accident, you must notify the police department closest to the accident as soon as possible.
Please contact Fiore & Barber, LLC at 215-256-0205 or via email. Our initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to accept your case, we will work on a contingent fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary award or recovery of funds on your behalf. You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
