After An Accident You Will Face Many Challenges — But You Do Not Have To Face Them Alone

After a serious accident, life as you know it changes drastically. Each and every day brings new challenges. You may be dealing with multiple surgeries, rehabilitation and pain management. You may find yourself unable to work and at a loss for how to afford your mounting medical bills. And dealing with the insurance company can bring frustration, anger and a sense of injustice when it undervalues or refuses your claim. During this difficult time, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed — but it is important not to give up hope. Just as family and friends provide emotional support, and doctors provide the medical care you need, so too can an experienced personal injury lawyer help you fight for your right to financial compensation.

We Will Fight For Your Right To Fair And Just Compensation

At Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C., we protect the legal rights of accident victims in Northwestern Pennsylvania and throughout the state. Both of our firm's partners have more than 20 years of legal experience and tangible track records of success. In addition, Mr. Purchase brings 15 years of experience representing the region's largest insurance companies. With this unique insight, he knows the tactics used by insurers use to minimize payouts and how to turn low-ball offers into fair settlements. But if it becomes clear that trial is the only way to obtain the justice and compensation you deserve, we are always prepared for a courtroom battle.

Our law firm is equipped to help you address serious injuries resulting from a wide range of accidents, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Premises accidents

Attorneys Eric Purchase and Tim George are widely regarded throughout the local and legal communities for their in-depth knowledge of personal injury law. Together they co-authored the book The Ultimate Guide to Car Accident Cases in Pennsylvania. In addition, Mr. Purchase is a sought-after legal educator, having lectured to students, other attorneys and claims professionals.

Our personal injury lawyers offer free consultations for all prospective clients. We want you to have a chance to meet with us and see firsthand how committed we are to pursuing justice on behalf of the injured. Our Erie office location is conveniently located near the I-79 Interchange and has ample on-site parking. If you cannot travel to one of our office locations, we can come to you.

Making things right again. It's what we do.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
