Aggressive Legal Representation for Injured People

Legal Help to Get You the Compensation You Deserve

     I represent injured people and grieving families, never insurance companies. Because insurance companies are unlikely to treat you fairly, you need an aggressive lawyer to give your case prompt attention and to take the necessary steps to fight for you. I put the power on your side. Contact my office for a free consultation.

     With over 30 years of legal experience, I have handled almost every type of accidental death and serious injury case. I represent clients in the following areas:

Motor Vehicle Accidents: I have helped hundreds of people get money for back injuries, head injuries, brain damage, whiplash, and broken bones suffered in auto accidents, trucking accidents, bus accidents, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian and bicycle accidents. In addition to driver negligence claims against the other driver and their insurance company, I review all possible sources of financial recovery, including:

·         Your own uninsured and underinsured motorist policy

·         The bar that served alcoholic drinks to the drunk driver who injured you

·         The state or local government controlling the road if construction crew negligence, poor signage, or improper road construction created dangerous highway conditions

Dangerous Premises: From slip and fall accidents, to dog bites, to physical assaults in unsecured buildings or businesses, the owner of a property can be held liable for failing to maintain and secure the property.

Defective Products: Manufacturers, sellers and distributors of dangerous and defective products can—and must—be held accountable for the products they produce that cause injury and death. Product liability lawsuits are one of the only ways to get unsafe products off the market, and to protect consumers.

Insurance Disputes / Abuse: If you believe you were treated unfairly or unreasonably denied payment on an insurance claim, contact  my Hollidaysburg law office to talk to an experienced consumer protection attorney, Joseph Nypaver.

Sexual Abuse: Attorney Joseph Nypaver is one of the few attorneys in the state to help the victims of childhood sexual abuse seek justice in court and to get child molesters out of positions where they can harm more children.  Attorney Nypaver has a reputation of fighting for the protection of children.

Boating and Recreational Vehicle Accidents: Like auto accidents, many boating injury accidents involve alcohol. They are caused by drunk boaters who cannot maintain control of their boats.
