What is personal injury?
Personal injury is more than a car accident, dog bite or a slip-and-fall injury. In fact, in personal injury law, there are many instances that someone may have a right to compensation. Personal injury applies to a wide range of incidents including:
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Nursing home abuse/neglect
- Dangerous and defective products
- Worker’s compensation
- Insurance bad faith
- Wrongful death
- Social security disability

Top five things to consider when choosing a personal injury law firm
When a person is hurt because of the negligence of others, oftentimes he or she does not know where to turn or how to choose a competent, caring team of attorneys to handle a personal injury case. If you are injured and need to consult an attorney, make sure you consider the following:
Make sure the firm you select to represent you in your personal injury case is experienced in the types of lawsuits related to your specific injury. There are many personal injury firms in the York and Adams counties areas so it’s important to conduct a thorough evaluation to make sure they can handle your case. Our firm specializes in personal injury law – it’s all we do, and all we have ever done.
Some personal injury firms assign hundreds of cases to one attorney, which means you may not get individual attention. Some details may be overlooked and cases could take much longer than necessary. In addition, it is important to get a sense of whether your lawyer will be available to answer questions or return emails. At the law offices of Dale E. Anstine Personal Injury Attorneys, each of our team of experienced lawyers is available to answer client questions and takes the time to explain the process thoroughly. At Dale E. Anstine, we get to know our clients personally and take the time to understand each case.
Personal injury attorneys are held to standards established by the state bar association. Each state has the power to take disciplinary action on attorneys that may have acted unethically or have had a complaint filed against them by a consumer. Consumers in the York, Hanover or Gettysburg areas may visit the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania website to find out if an attorney is in good standing.
There are several different ways that personal injury lawyers determine the fees for the cases they work on for injured parties. Some attorneys charge an hourly rate and others work on a flat-fee structure. At Dale E. Anstine, consultations are always free, and we work on a contingency fee structure, which means that we do not get paid unless we win money for you.
Some firms are hesitant to tell their clients that his or her case may be tough to win or that there are weaknesses in a case. When you initially meet with an attorney for a consultation, he or she should honestly assess your case so you can understand the next steps. The team of knowledgeable personal injury attorneys at Dale E. Anstine will be honest and open with you about both the strengths and weaknesses of your case so you know what to expect.
