Legal Tips Blog
Stephen Karp & Peter Hart
As litigation attorneys, we have been co-hosts of Legal Talk on WCHE, which after 23 years is the longest running legal talk show in America. It is a tremendous platform to discuss legal issues, interview guests including politicians, judges, authors and other lawyers, and answer call in questions from our listeners. We also get to express our own opinions, and comment on what we feel is interesting and important in the legal world.
This blog is an extension of our desire to share the knowledge we have after over thirty five years of experience with a legal focus on personal injury law. Here we will highlight interesting legal cases, news & events related to us, and explore legal cases related to motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, liability & negligence, and nursing home cases. Our practice is centered in Pennsylvania, predominantly in the Chester County area. We will try to offer insight that will help you understand the law better and hopefully broadcast pertinent information in legal areas where you are seeking information.
We hope you enjoy reading our informative posts on the Legal Talk Blog.

Their automobile insurance decisions are usually based on price alone. Many try to reduce their insurance coverage cost by purchasing as little insurance as possible, believing that they are [...]
I have been asked repeatedly both by students in my Chester County People’s Law School program, and by clients at my Pennsylvania law office, whether their particular auto insurance policy has the proper coverages. Most people are still woefully uninformed as to what car insurance coverages are available to them and what they have purchased [...]
