Experienced Pennsylvania Personal Injury AV Preeminent® rated Attorneys, Gold Winner for Top Attorney 2023 and Top 10 Personal Injury Law Firm in 2020

We have handled thousands of personal injury cases, involving likely any type of accident and injuries.  Prior to entering private practice over 20 years ago, Attorney Jennifer Gilliland Vanasdale and Attorney Gary T. Vanasdale worked collectively, also for over 20 years for two of the largest Fortune 500 Insurance Companies.  They have handled just about every kind of case you can think of.  Knowing the insurance perspective is invaluable when handling a case from the injured party’s prospective.  Unlike other personal injury attorneys that only handle injury related cases, we have invaluable, well-rounded experience that can help our injured clients recover the damages they deserve and get back to their lives.

Although we have achieved so many settlements, one example of our ability to handle the varied  needs of our clients is a case where our client was seriously injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident.  During the course of our representation, we learned that our client had another vehicle, a luxury vehicle that he bought for himself to reward his retirement, with which our client was experiencing recurring failures.  Not only did Attorney Vanasdale successfully settle our client’s serious injury claim, our office also initiated proceedings relating to claims associated with the vehicle.  After prevailing against a major corporation, we were able to assist our client in securing compensation along with a new vehicle!  This is just one example of many success stories that bolsters our reputation in helping our valued clients with their various legal needs.

We work hard to get our clients compensated for their losses, even when cases are challenging.  Attorney Gary T. Vanasdale helped a client receive a six figure settlement after being sexually harassed at work.  We settled a case in mediation following a sexual assault that occurred at a business, and although others felt there would be no coverage for the claim, we successfully argued coverage under the business policy based on certain language/endorsements of the policy.

Over the past decade, we have handled claims that resulted in settlements exceeding millions of dollars in recovery.  If we include the cases we resolved while working for the insurance companies, we have worked on case settlements totaling hundreds of millions of dollars.  We often get referrals  from insurance companies and other personal injury attorneys, as they know we understand the process.  Attorney Gary Vanasdale also has earned his CPCU designation – the prestigious insurance designation that designates him a subject matter expert.  Both he and Attorney Jennifer Gilliland Vanasdale are sought after by other attorneys to serve as experts in cases.  We enjoy being complimented by prior clients in their referrals and attorneys in the field.

Subject matter experts to help with your case

In addition to both Attorney Gary T. Vanasdale and Jennifer Gilliland Vanasdale being subject matter experts themselves, they consult with knowledgeable and respected experts to assist with case preparation. With the assistance of physicians, trauma doctors, pharmacists, chiropractors, forensics engineers, mechanics and accident reconstruction analysts, our attorneys can negotiate the best possible settlements. If needed at trial, these experts are available to deliver clear, professional testimony.

The importance of immediately seeking help

Pennsylvania law sets limits on the amount of time you have to file a personal injury claim. Consult an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible to file your claim by the crucial statutory deadlines. By investigating your claim immediately, we are able to collect valuable evidence and interview witnesses while their memories are fresh.  Attorney Gary Vanasdale enjoys doing his own investigations, capitalizing on his insurance experience such as being responsible for fraud investigations.  This experience is invaluable as we know insurance, how to locate coverage and how to best posture your case to get the best result within our control.
