Our Practice Areas

The experienced injury lawyers at Stine & Associates, P.C. have more than 30 years of experience handling all types of injury claims in New Stanton and the surrounding areas, including:

  • Car accidents– Traffic accidents cause over 1,000 deaths each year in Pennsylvania and many thousands more injuries. In addition to disciplinary sanctions for violating traffic laws, the at-fault party can be held accountable in a civil personal injury claim.
  • Truck accidents– Due to the size and weight of large commercial vehicles, truck accidents have a significant chance of causing catastrophic and fatal injuries.
  • Motorcycle accidents– Because motorcycles can travel at high speeds, and so can other vehicles that may strike them, the impact absorbed by a rider’s body in an accident can have devastating medical consequences.
  • Bicycle accidents– Many road users do not give bicyclists the space and respect they deserve, and the results can be deadly.
  • Pedestrian accidents– Many areas of Pennsylvania have high rates of pedestrian accidents. Children, older adults, and disabled individuals are particularly vulnerable.
  • Products liability– If you have suffered injuries due to a poorly designed or defective product, you can seek compensation from the item’s manufacturer or distributor.
  • Medical malpractice– When medical professionals fail to treat patients with the appropriate standard of care, our attorneys fight to hold them accountable.
  • Workers’ comp– If you suffer an injury on the job or because of the job, you could be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits regardless of who was at fault.
  • Wrongful death– The sudden loss of a loved one due to another party’s wrongdoing can devastate a family. We can seek compensation for funeral expenses, medical bills, and lost income for the decedent’s dependents.

While many other law firms offer additional services, such as probate, real estate, or criminal law, Stine & Associates, P.C. focuses exclusively on providing legal advice and advocacy to injured and disabled Pennsylvanians.

  • Spinal cord injuries– Injuring the spinal cord may result in partial or total paralysis of the limbs, loss of sensation, and impaired bladder and bowel control.
  • Broken bones– Fractures to the arms, legs, ribs, hips, skull, and other body structures often require surgery and extensive rehabilitation.

  • Amputations – Crush injuries or traumatic amputations of fingers, toes, hands, arms, feet, and legs are possible in serious accidents.

  • Calculating the total value of your losses to ensure that you do not settle for less compensation than you deserve

Possible Compensation Available in Pennsylvania Personal Injury Claims

If you are injured due to another party’s actions or inaction in Pennsylvania, you may be entitled to recover compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost income due to missed time at work
  • Reduced ability to earn if you are unable to return to the same job
  • Physical and psychological pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Personal Injury Lawsuit Filing Deadline in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania law for personal injury cases allows an injured person to file a lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident. If you do not file a lawsuit within this timeframe, you may be permanently barred from pursuing the money you need for your injuries in court. This is why it is critical to consult an attorney as soon as possible. Hiring an attorney early on in the process will also allow them to collect key evidence before it disappears and interview witnesses before their memories fade.
