Newtown Car Accident Lawyers
Seasoned Car Accident Lawyers at Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg & Gifford, P.C. Represent Accident Victims in Newtown and Surrounding Communities
Despite the name, car accidents are actually rarely true accidents—in most cases, one driver’s negligent or reckless actions can be identified as the cause of the accident, which could have been prevented if that driver had exercised the care necessary to protect the safety of everyone on the roadways. If you were injured in a Newtown car accident, you may quickly become frustrated when another party’s negligent driving has caused you to suffer mounting medical expenses, unpaid absences from work and the pain and suffering of physical recovery.
Unfortunately, insurance companies often do not provide comprehensive settlement offers and a negligent driver may argue that he or she was not responsible for the accident, adding further complications to your recovery. If this is the case, you need the expertise of a car accident lawyer who you can trust to make sure you recover full and fair compensation from the parties who caused the accident. At Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg & Gifford, P.C., we are serious about holding negligent drivers responsible for their actions and will work tirelessly to make sure you obtain the financial compensation that you deserve.

About Newtown, PA
Newtown Township is located in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, not far from Philadelphia, and has a population of approximately 20,000 residents. Newtown served as the original county seat of Bucks County from 1726 until 1813, after which the county seat was moved to Doylestown. Today, Newtown Township surrounds the much smaller Newtown Borough, which has an independent local government. The median income in Newtown Township is high, at around $80,532 per household and $91,923 per family. Residents are attracted to Newtown by the many parks and recreational facilities in the area, which include Chandler Fields, Clark Nature Center, Tyler State Park, and Newtown Skate Park.
Pennsylvania follows a comparative negligence law that does not prohibit you from recovering compensation for your injuries from a negligent party as long as you were less negligent than the other party. Even if you were partially responsible for the accident, you may still be able to recover compensation. Despite this, your overall compensation award will be reduced to reflect your own degree of fault. For example, if you were found to be 20 percent at fault, and awarded compensation of $100,000, you will only be entitled to recover $80,000 (i.e., your award is reduced by 20 percent, your degree of fault).
Determining each party’s degree of fault in a car accident case is not an exact science. All of the facts and circumstances of the case will be examined, and all available evidence will be used to establish fault. Our experienced car accident lawyers will investigate and argue on your behalf in order to prove that the other driver caused the accident. We will examine accident reports, photos of the scene, the other driver’s cell phone records and any available surveillance videos to uncover evidence of the other driver’s negligence. We can also work with expert witnesses to provide evidence of the other driver’s fault.
