Personal Injury


Personal injury is the main focus of Nakles and Nakles

We have represented more than a thousand accident victims since the firm was established. The goal at Nakles and Nakles is to maximize the amount of money you are entitled to receive when you have been hurt in an accident. Our areas of specialty include:

  • Wrongful death
  • Motor Vehicle accidents including car, truck, 18- wheeler, bus, motorcycle, pedestrian, bicycle, and boating crashes
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Aviation accidents, including plane and helicopter
  • Railroad accidents
  • Electrical injuries
  • Defective highway design and roadway defects
  • Premise liability and slip-and-fall accidents
  • Defective products
  • Animal bites
  • Construction accidents

Our firm has a record of achieving the highest possible verdicts and settlements for those injured in an accident . We have successfully attained many verdicts and settlements in excess of $1,000,000 for our clients, including the single highest medical malpractice verdict in the history of Westmoreland County. We have been involved in many types of complex litigation including the 1978 Derry helicopter crash and the Pan Am 103 air disaster over Lockerbie, Scotland.

We recognize that injury victims would like to avoid trial, if possible. We are proud that our skillful, thorough case investigation and preparation allows nearly 95% of our personal injury cases to be successfully settled without a trial. Insurance companies are very aware of Nakles and Nakles’ reputation, experience, and trial record , and thus are more willing to negotiate a favorable settlement.

Nakles and Nakles  also recognizes, however, that not all cases can be settled before trial. In that event, your case will be in the hands of a competent trial lawyer with the entire staff and facilities of our firm working for you.  We are confident that the skills and experience we have developed over the past 65 years will enable us to get the most favorable result in your case. Mr. Nakles’ distinguished track record, and well recognized trial expertise have resulted in a successful personal injury and accident law practice. Mr. Nakles aggressively represents his clients at all stages of a case.

Initial offers to settle “out of court ” by insurance companies are often inadequate to provide for current and future compensation.  Moreover, most cases require the retention of experts in medicine, science, and accident reconstruction to enhance the full amount of compensation and value in an accident case. Often, there are other sources of compensation to explore to properly develop a case. Mr. Nakles has the creativity, sophistication, and  financial resources to maximize a personal injury settlement or jury verdict. He has the reputation of being the most credentialed trial lawyer in the area.

If you have been injured due to the negligence of others, contact the personal injury lawyers at Nakles and Nakles to protect your financial recovery. The initial evaluation is free, and there is only a fee if we are successful in your case.
