Who pays for medical bills and lost wages if you’re injured in an accident?
Somebody has to pay for your medical bills, your lost wages, and the pain and suffering you and your family are experiencing. That “somebody” is the negligent party who caused the damage. At High Swartz, we can help you pursue the matter.
Our personal injury attorneys recover damages for clients across Bucks County and Montgomery County and the surrounding areas. Building a successful case and maximizing your compensation starts with assessing liability.
Determining who is at fault when there is negligence
Fault for the accident may seem obvious to you; after all the other driver swerved into your lane, or the grocery store manager did not clean up that dangerous, slippery spill in Aisle 13. However, the person seeking to hold another party legally responsible for their injuries and damages bears the burden of presenting affirmative evidence that it is more likely than not that the defendant is legally responsible for the injuries and damages are the fault of the other party. Moreover, under Pennsylvania law, the defendant may try to show that you were either more at fault for the accident than the defendant, or that your recovery should be reduced or eliminated because your own negligence contributed to your injuries or damages.
High Swartz can provide answers, inform you of the rights and liabilities of the parties, and provide legal representation backed by our knowledgeable attorneys and caring support staff.
There are many types of automobile accidents. Our attorneys in Bucks County and Montgomery County have successfully litigated and/or settled many cases such as:
- Car Accidents

Our lawyers leave no stone unturned in assessing liability and helping you get the compensation you need and deserve for your injuries.
Understanding the causes of auto accidents can help you describe your accident more fully to build a successful car crash claim — and it may even help you avoid a future accident.
Whether you call them semis, tractor-trailers, 18-wheelers or big rigs, an accident with these giants of the roadways causes the most catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injury, paralysis, amputations and organ damage. Truck accidents are also some of the most legally complex personal injury claims, as there are often multiple parties that can be held liable. Our Bucks County and Montgomery County lawyers bring many years of experience to bear in assessing fault and helping you recover damages.
Knowing how to fight potential jury bias against “bikers” is at least half the battle in getting you full and fair compensation for your motorcycle accident.

If you have suffered harm as the result of an error committed by a physician, surgeon, OB-GYN, anesthesiologist, pharmacist, nurse or other medical professional, you may be able to file a medical malpractice claim. Our personal injury lawyers are ready to help and offer a free initial consultation to evaluate your case and discuss your needs.
Nursing Home Abuse
If you believe that your parent, grandparent or other vulnerable adult relative has been the victim of physical, financial or emotional nursing home abuse or negligence, our Doylestown attorneys can protect the rights and well-being of your loved one.
Slip and Fall Accidents
The National Safety Council reports that not only are falls a leading cause of injury in the United States, but they are also a leading cause of accidental death among adults age 65 and older. We hold property owners, managers and other responsible parties liable when their negligence causes a slip and fall accident, ensuring that you are compensated for your injuries.
In Pennsylvania, dog owners have a responsibility to restrain and control their dogs. If they do not — and especially if they know their dogs have the potential to bite or attack — they are liable for your injuries. Our lawyers help victims of dog bites in Bucks County, Montgomery County and the surrounding areas recover damages for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering in dog bite cases.
Although no amount of money can truly compensate you for your loss, it can help you cover the expenses associated with an accident caused by negligence and create some financial security for your family.
