Raising the Bar in Personal Injury Representation

We consider ourselves to be more than just our clients’ attorneys. Our clients trust us to help them, and this means something. We could simply take on client after client and add case after case to the pile. But, we don’t. Instead, we focus on getting to know our clients personally, limiting our caseload so that we can do our very best in each and every matter that we handle. We know what you expect. We believe that you are entitled to expect more.

We Invest Our Time, Money, and Resources in You

At The Slocum Firm, we represent people whose lives have been transformed by other people’s mistakes. If you were injured in an accident in which someone else was to blame, you deserve an advocate who will fight with 100 percent commitment to restore the balance in your life. We truly believe this, and this is why we dedicate all of our resources to every case and limit the number of cases we take at any one time. By taking this approach, we ensure that each client receives highly-individualized legal counsel, and that every single case is resolved in our client’s best interests as quickly as possible.

We Handle Complex Personal Injury Claims

Closure. It’s a word that can mean many different things to many different people.  But, at its core, it signifies that a person has found the resolve – and the means – to move on from a traumatic experience.

Through decades of legal experience, we have found that, for many people, personal injury claims are ultimately about a search for closure.  It is normal for victims of traumatic accidents to be left feeling scared, sad, angry, and confused.  At The Slocum Firm, we focus on providing a road map for our clients, so they can get to the light at the end of the tunnel.

If you have been injured in a car accident – or any type of accident for that matter – one of the most important steps in your personal injury claim is to understand what you’ve lost. When you add up the medical bills, future medical costs, pain and suffering, lost income, and other losses that can stem from a serious auto accident, most people have no idea of the true extent of the harm that they’ve endured.

At The Slocum Firm, we will make sure that you don’t settle for anything less than rightful compensation. We will make sure that you take the steps necessary to protect your claim, and we will aggressively pursue a full financial recovery on your behalf. While we are able to settle most car accident claims well before trial, you can rest assured that, if necessary, we will be fully prepared to fight for your rights in court.

In motorcycle accidents, the tendency among most people is to assume that the motorcycle rider must have been to blame. This is unfortunate, and it by no means reflects the reality borne out by the statistics on motorcycle accidents in Pennsylvania and nationwide.

At The Slocum Firm, we provide vigorous legal representation for motorcycle riders injured in accidents where “cage” drivers are to blame. If someone else is responsible for your injuries, we will fight to make sure that he or she is held responsible for your physical harm, financial losses, and emotional scars.

Trucks are big, heavy, and hard to stop. While this is all true, none of it provides an excuse for truckers and trucking companies to avoid liability in the event of an accident. To the contrary, if anything, truckers and trucking companies must be more careful to ensure that they do not place innocent drivers and passengers in harm’s way. Jackknifes, sideswipes, underrides, rear-end collisions – these are all accidents in which truckers, trucking companies, and others are frequently to blame.

If you have been severely injured in a truck accident, it is critical that you hire an experienced attorney to help you stand up for your legal rights. At The Slocum Firm, we have the experience and resources necessary to take on the trucking companies, their insurance companies, and their defense lawyers to fight for the compensation that you deserve.

If you slipped or fell on someone else’s property, you could be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses. At The Slocum Firm, we will provide you with a thorough case assessment and help you understand your rights so that you can make an informed decision about proceeding with a claim. If you are entitled compensation for a slip or fall, we will work diligently to obtain a quick, fair settlement that allows you to move on with your life without the uncertainty of wondering how you are going to be able to pay your bills.
