Right to Know Law: Leaving No Stone Unturned in your Injury Case

Hi, I’m Matthew Mobilio founder of Mobilio Law.  In this video I am going to talk a little bit about a law in Pennsylvania that could provide valuable information in prosecuting your injury claim: the Pennsylvania Right to Know Law.  Similar to the federal government’s freedom of information act The Right to Know Law but for a few exceptions guarantees your right to obtain public records from state and local agencies in Pennsylvania.  It also guarantees your right to obtain legislative records from the Pennsylvania General Assembly and financial records from Pennsylvania’s judicial system.

There are several ways the law’s wide grant of access may be important for your personal injury case.  For example, larger municipalities such as the cities of Allentown and Bethlehem maintain a number of video cameras that record traffic and pedestrian activity.  The right to know law may provide an injured party with access to video footage as to how their accident occurred.  Also, the right to know law may grant an injured party access to municipal records such as work orders and government official’s correspondence which could establish that a particular municipal entity had notice of a dangerous condition of their streets, sidewalks, etc… but failed to repair it in a timely manner.

The Pennsylvania Right to Know Law is a powerful tool that could mean the difference between winning and losing your personal injury claim.  If you have questions about injuries you suffered in an accident and how to receive top dollar for those injuries contact me today for a free no obligation case evaluation.
