Personal Injury

An injury can change your life in an instant. Dugan & Associates has helped thousands of people win back medical expenses, lost income, and compensation for pain and suffering.

Proving negligence

Protecting your best interest when pursuing a claim
Documenting the incident
Focus on Recovery

Here are ways you can protect yourself when injury strikes.

  • Don’t give the insurance company a statement. They will ask you to give them as much information about the accident as you can — but saying too much could come back to haunt you. Contact us before you say anything.
  • Don’t delay treatment. After an accident, seek medical care immediately. Delaying treatment can signal that your injuries are not serious enough to pursue a claim.
  • Save medical records, pay stubs, photographs, bills, and receipts. A personal injury claim must be supported by the proper documentation.

Document what’s happened as well as you can. Evidence is crucial. 

  • Call 911.
  • Photograph the scene of the accident and any visible wounds.
  • Write down what you remember about the accident.
  • Identify potential witnesses. Take down their full name, phone number or email address, and insurance information.

Our award-winning personal injury attorneys fight for your maximum compensation under PA law. Focus on recovery — let us handle the complex claims process, the paperwork, and the insurance companies. Call us at 888-99-D-U-G-A-N to take the first step to getting the compensation you’re entitled to.

Mitch was the best.  I was going through much stress being hurt and basically unloved by my employer.  He was always there when I needed his help. He always called me back if he was in court.  He was humorous sometimes and that aleved alot of anxiety.  I was satisfied with his suggestions and guidance.  Very professional. He always was able to explain things to me and was very nice.   He also obtained a very nice settlement for me. Thank you Mitch.
