Personal Injury

When you are injured because of someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or wrongdoing, you can file a personal injury claim and seek to recover damages. Working with a personal injury lawyer can ensure that the rights of you and your loved ones are protected.

What Does a Debt Defense Attorney Do?

Did you know that 90% of the time, a debt collector doesn’t have enough evidence to win their case against you in court? That means you can prevail in a debt collection lawsuit, especially if you have an attorney on your side to navigate the legal issues.

A debt defense attorney may provide the following services:

  • Make the debt collector prove they own the debt they’re requesting you pay
  • Confirm the debt collector’s agreement with you is legal
  • Account for all the debt a collector claims you owe
  • Verify that the information in the files is accurate
  • Explore various defenses to allow you to avoid paying the debt
  • Help you sue a debt collector that has harassed you or violated a law

According to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), debt collectors must abide by federal laws when they attempt to collect any debts. This means they can neither purposefully deceive nor harass you in their debt collection efforts. When this law is violated, you may be able to sue the debt collector for financial damages.

Why Hire a Personal Injury Attorney in Philadelphia?

Whether you’ve been involved in a car accident, were injured on someone’s property, or were harmed by a medical professional, if another person’s actions (or sometimes inactions) caused your injury, you may be able to collect financial compensation.

There’s no question that this is a difficult time for you and your family, and the other party’s insurance company is not going to make things any easier for you.

The role of a personal injury attorney is to seek full and fair compensation under the law. The attorneys at J.P. Ward & Associates have proven strategies for pursuing damages, including aggressive settlement negotiations and filing a lawsuit, when necessary.

Why Do You Need an Employment Lawyer in Philadelphia?

Employers are allowed to make some decisions that may seem unfair, such as choosing a coworker for a promotion over you. But when employers make hiring or termination decisions for unlawful or discriminatory reasons, they cross a line into illicit behavior.

If any of the following are true, you could benefit from working with an employment attorney in Philadelphia:

  • Your employer didn’t give you a reason for firing you.
  • You believe a company refused to hire you due to your race, sex, or religious beliefs.
  • Your boss demoted you after you filed a workers’ compensation claim.
  • You experienced harassment in the workplace, and your employer made no attempt to right the situation.
