If you've been injured in an accident, hurt at work, or denied disability, get in touch with Metzger Wickersham for a free, confidential consultation. We have a no fee guarantee, which means that you pay us absolutely no attorney fees unless we win your case.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q:What is the difference between SSI and SSDI?

    A:Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is given based on age and the number of work credits you have. It allows you to receive your retirement benefits earlier. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is based on income limitations. To qualify, you need to prove low income, very few financial resources/assets, and disability. Fewer people qualify for this due to the income restrictions.

  • Q:What is the most common cause of collisions?

    A:Distracted driving is the most common cause of collisions for both personal vehicles and commercial vehicles. Over a thousand people in the US are killed every single day due to distracted drivers, and around nine people are killed. In Pennsylvania, texting while driving is illegal. If you were seriously injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver, it’s a good idea to consider speaking with a lawyer.

  • Q:What is a writ of summons? What if I ignore it?

    A:A writ of summons is a very common legal mechanism in Pennsylvania. It is the beginning of a lawsuit, and it allows the plaintiff to begin without ever filing a complaint. The plaintiff usually chooses this route when there isn’t a lot of evidence upfront. As you might suspect, it is not a good idea to ignore a writ of summons. If you do, a default judgment against you can be obtained by the plaintiff. Sometimes you may not know who is serving the summons or don’t understand why, but it is always a good idea to try to find out more details and speak to a lawyer.
