Philadelphia Accident Attorney
Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania and the fifth-largest in America. Every day, millions of people commute to and through Philadelphia on their way to work or to enjoy one of the city’s many historic sites. With so much traffic on the roads, highways, sidewalks and throughout the city, a serious accident can happen at any time.
Accidents in Philadelphia can be complicated, and knowing what to do in the aftermath – especially while you’re still recovering from an injury – can be difficult. That’s why you need a veteran personal injury attorney on your side, advocating for your rights.
The personal injury lawyers at Flager & Associates represent clients in Philadelphia and throughout Pennsylvania. Our founder, Randy Flager, has earned the community’s respect as a frequent guest speaker at functions all over the city. We handle all of the following cases and more:

Car Accidents in Philadelphia
Throughout its history, Philadelphia has been a major hub for travelers of all kinds. Today, millions of cars and other vehicles pass through the city on a daily basis, and that means a serious accident can happen in an instant. Whether you were involved in a rear-end collision or hit by a texting driver, the consequences can be serious.
Dealing with the aftermath of an accident can take months, years or even a lifetime. Philly is full of hardworking people, and being unable to work after an accident can be a huge blow, both emotionally and financially. You might be faced with medical bills, physical therapy or even a permanent disability, and if someone else caused your injuries, you shouldn’t have to handle those costs alone.
With so much at stake after a car accident, you can’t afford to lose. Contact Flager & Associates to get the experienced lawyers Philly residents trust on your side. Our attorneys have been representing injured people throughout the city for decades, and we’ll put our resources to work for you. We have extensive experience at the negotiating table and in the courtroom, and that experience makes a difference.
Truck Accidents in Philadelphia
Many major highways serve Philadelphia, including I-76, I-95 and others. On those roads, large commercial trucks are an everyday sight, and most motorists don’t think much of driving near them. That can change in an instant, however, when a trucker drives distracted, falls asleep at the wheel or otherwise causes a collision.
Truck accidents in Philadelphia often result in serious or even fatal injuries. You may be left with high medical bills, physical therapy and other expenses, not to mention the damage to your vehicle. You might not be able to work or move normally for months or ever again. That’s why it’s important to take immediate legal action if you’re a victim of a tractor-trailer accident.
At Flager & Associates, we have years of experience successfully handling accidents involving 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, delivery trucks and other large vehicles in Philadelphia. We know what evidence to look for and we know how to build strong cases. Our veteran attorneys aren’t afraid to stand up to the trucking companies and their insurance companies, and we’ll negotiate and litigate on your behalf to get the compensation you need.
Motorcycle Accidents in Philadelphia
Especially in the warm summer months, thousands of motorcyclists take to the open road in and around Philadelphia. Unfortunately, a motorcycle offers much less protection to a rider than a passenger car or truck does to an operator or passenger. When another vehicle strikes the exposed body of a motorcyclist, serious injuries or death can occur.
While some motorcyclists are responsible for their own accidents, in most cases, negligence on the part of a motorist is to blame. You might have been struck by a car turning left in front of your bike while approaching a busy intersection in downtown Philly. Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to drunk and distracted drivers, who may not notice their small vehicles until it’s too late to avoid a collision.
A motorcycle accident in Philadelphia can cause serious injuries, ranging from road rash to traumatic brain injuries. You might have even lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident. If you’ve been hurt, turn to the experienced Philadelphia accident attorneys at Flager & Associates. We’ve handled hundreds of cases on behalf of injured motorcyclists, and we’ll fight for the compensation you need to keep moving forward.
Dog Bites in Philadelphia
Dog bites are the most common types of animal attacks in Philadelphia, and they can be the most dangerous. The risk of infection is high, and the ragged edges of the bite can leave victims permanently disfigured. In many cases, reconstructive surgery or skin grafts will be required to repair the damage. Dog bites can break bones and even cause injuries requiring surgery.
Children are among the most vulnerable to dog bites because they may inadvertently act in ways that provoke a dog’s aggression. In addition to the physical injuries, children who are bitten by dogs often suffer serious emotional trauma.
Unlike some states, Pennsylvania does not use a “one free bite” rule. That is, you don’t need to prove that the dog had a prior history of aggressive behavior in order to sue the owner for compensation. Rather, you can use the incident for which you are seeking compensation as proof of the dog’s propensity to attack.
Nevertheless, personal injury cases involving dog bites can be difficult to argue. The owner’s insurance company may try to argue that you provoked the attack or that the owner took sufficient steps to keep the dog under control. Our experienced personal injury lawyers can counter those arguments and get you the compensation you deserve. In many cases, a settlement or judgment in your favor can pay for plastic surgery or other procedures to significantly reduce any scarring or disfigurement after a dog bite.
