Best Trucking Accident Lawyer in Pennsylvania
Jim Ronca and his Associate Attorney, Ryan Hurd, of Anapol Weiss were truly the experts on securing a very generous settlement from our serious accident, having been struck from behind by a truck. I sustained life-changing, career ending injuries from the accident. Utilizing Mr. Ronca's mastery of Pennsylvania statutes re: trucks and truck drivers, he and his very competent members of the firm proved that the driver, and the companies that had subcontracted his services, were negligent, and therefore liable for the damages that have permanently altered my health and ended my professional career. If you have had a similar misfortune, and need personal injury compensation, immediately call Mr. Jim Ronca and his firm, Anapol Weiss, to represent you. You will receive only the most qualified, most knowedgeable, and most professional representation for your fair settlement.

Dedicated advocate
Mr. Ronca, his paralegal Mr. Peterson, and secretary Ms. Steever make an excellent team. They made sure all of my questions were answered in a timely fashion and gave me great attention. My family and I hired Mr. Ronca after a devastating injury that required years of rehabiliation. He attended many of my therapy sessions and rooted for me throughout my recovery. Mr. Ronca was able to obtain a favorable settlement for me and I will be forever grateful. His dedication did not stop there though. My family and I created a chartiable fund to help others who needed to attend the same therapy I did and Mr. Ronca and his firm have donated to this fund and have created others at this rehabiliation facility. Mr. Ronca is a dedicated advocate who puts his clients first.

Could not have asked for better service......
I had no idea what to expect when I hired Mr. Ronca to look into my my husband's unexpected death. I was not as concerned about money as I was receiving justice for his untimely passing. Mr. Ronca kept me informed about the progress of the suit during the 2 year period and was able to provide a settlement that allowed me to help my children with their expenses. While the monetary settlement was nice I more appreciated the fact that in offering a settlement the drug company in my mind was admitting some responsibility for my loss. I could not have asked for better service from a lawyer than I received from Mr. Ronca and the firm Anapol & Schwartz. They really seemed to care about my loss and worked to help me.
