Personal Injury

Catastrophic injuries are devastating and life-altering. After an accident, many serious injury victims are unexpectedly thrown into a world of unknowns and fear. Important questions suddenly demand answers that you might not have. These include:

  • How will I pay my bills if I cannot work any longer?
  • What should I do if the insurance company will not cover my accident?
  • How can I get Social Security Disability?

If another party’s negligent acts caused your serious or catastrophic injury, it is important to know you are not alone in your quest for physical, emotional and financial recovery.

You do not have to struggle on your own any longer. We are here to help. Contact Olexa & Casari today to schedule your free, no-obligation case evaluation.

Auto Accidents

Pennsylvania car accident victims recover for their medical bills, property damage, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.

A car wreck can turn your life upside down. Nobody expects to get seriously injured in an auto accident. In a flash, a negligent driver can run a red light, swerve into your path or pull out in front of you. A car collision can happen in an instant and change your life forever.

Choosing the right attorney can mean the difference between full and fair compensation for your injuries and no compensation at all. We know the laws and understand the best courses of action for our clients to take. Edward Olexa and the team of experienced attorneys will go up against insurance companies, other drivers, major corporations, and others on your behalf, fighting for the compensation your injuries deserve. We are your comprehensive source for car accident recovery assistance.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motor vehicle accident, Olexa & Casari can help you recover financial compensation for your injuries.

Workers’ Compensation

Many accidents happen while at work. In Pennsylvania, thousands are hurt every year while they are at work. Every business in Pennsylvania is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in case of an accident. Workers’ compensation is designed to recover an employee’s economic loss during their period of recovery.

The term “workers’ compensation” refers to a system of laws outlining specific benefits to which injured employees are entitled, and the procedures for obtaining such benefits. Every state has its own workers’ compensation laws, which are contained in statutes, and vary somewhat from state to state. In addition, there are special, federal workers’ compensation laws for employees of the federal government and other, specific types of industries.

Under the law in Pennsylvania, every business must have some form of workers’ compensation insurance to cover injured employees. Filing a workers’ compensation claim is similar to filing an insurance claim; it isn’t a lawsuit against an employer, but rather a request for benefits. If you have been injured at work, attorneys at Olexa & Casari can explain the complexities of workers’ compensation and help you secure the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.

Wills And Estates

A Pennsylvania will is a document that determines where your assets will go upon your death. It is a legal document with much importance, as a Pennsylvania testator (or the person drafting the will) gets to make these decisions based on his/her preferences and determine which family members or others will receive assets or property from the estate upon death.

In the event that a person dies and does not have a will, their property passes by Pennsylvania intestacy laws, which takes away the testator’s ability to specifically designate which family members/others receive certain assets or property. The shares and property of the decedent’s estate pass according to a formula designated by the Pennsylvania intestacy laws.

Contacting Olexa & Casari to draft your will ensures that the people of your choosing are accounted for when you are no longer around. At Olexa & Casari, we can also determine which type of will is best for your estate – depending on the amount of the assets in your estate and the complexity of your wishes.

When your loved one passes away, it is often difficult to deal with such an emotional event, and you should not have to worry about the complicated legal issues that death brings. It is important to seek the advice of an experienced estate attorney so that the decedent’s final expenses can be paid promptly and the loved one’s financial affairs can be settled.

The lawyers at Olexa & Casari have the experience necessary to ensure that the estate is handled promptly and compassionately and that all of your loved one’s final wishes are handled professionally. If you are the personal representative of your dearly departed, make the call to the right lawyers at Olexa & Casari – so that work can begin right away to help you navigate the often complicated process of estate administration and avoid any possible legal pitfalls that come with the responsibility of handling a loved one’s final affairs.
