What We Do
At NEEDLE LAW we represent the injured in personal injury, Workers’ Compensation and Social Security Disability Claims. We handle these cases throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania including Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Honesdale, Stroudsburg, Tunkhannock, Milford and Montrose.
Each of our Attorneys has more than twenty years of experience in representing people who have been injured through the carelessness of others or by defective products or who have been wronged by their own insurance company. Our goal is to get you the money you deserve.
From our offices in Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Stroudsburg and Honesdale, our personal injury lawyers provide services throughout Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming Counties. Our lawyers have settled or tried a wide variety of personal injury and wrongful death claims, including those involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, all-terrain and other recreational vehicles, construction site accidents, roadway and bridge accidents, boating, diving and swimming accidents, slip and fall, trip and fall and other premises liability accidents. We have also had extensive involvement in bad-faith insurance litigation, where our client’s own insurance company has failed to live up to its obligations and responsibilities, and in product liability claims involving defective products or defective instructions for using the product, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, snow blowers, lawn mowers, industrial equipment and household appliances.
A more extensive list of the types of cases we handle can be found on this page, with links to an explanation of each type of case.
If you don’t see your type of case, it doesn’t mean we haven’t done it or won’t do it for you. Ask us about it.
Workers’ Compensation claims involve anyone injured, either physically or mentally, during the course of their employment for another person or company. An employee can be at a clear disadvantage without an attorney to help him navigate Pennsylvania’s complicated laws and regulations following a work related injury. There are things an injured employee must do or should do and other things the employee should not do, while the employer and its insurer have their own obligations. The interests of the employer/insurer on the one side and the employee on the other are often not the same. See our Workers’ Compensation page and talk to one of our Workers’ Compensation lawyers for a full explanation of the Workers’ Compensation system and your rights.
Social Security Disability is another area where knowing what is important and how to present a claim is essential to a successful outcome. Again, claimants, acting on their own, are at a distinct disadvantage. Across the United States, the percentage of successful claims continues to shrink. For your best chance at an award of benefits, talk to our experienced Social Security lawyers if your application for SSD or SSI has been denied or even before you apply.
Finally, at NEEDLE LAW, our attorneys have significant experience with Wills and Estates, Elder law, Contracts, Real Estate and Real Estate Zoning and Development. Call us if you have a question, a need or a problem in any of these areas.
