      “Highly Recommended” is the epitome of an understatement when it comes to the firm of McDonald At Law!! Michael McDonald’s genuine pleasant, and empathetic demeanor masks his legal astuteness, and the level of aggressiveness he implements in pursuit of a victim’s right and the monetary compensation legally entitled to us. I was involved in a motor vehicle accident at the hands of an intoxicated driver in York County. In my case I suffered what I described as an atypical injury, Mr. McDonald offered to be my Lawyer immediately after explaining to him the events leading to and after being struck in turn causing me to have a heart attack, when another law firm seemed hesitant. McDonald At Law secured a sizable monetary compensation that not only met my expectation but exceeded it. Mr. McDonald’s wealth of experience, and legal prowess is priceless and never did he act as the case was beneath his practice. In the end my family and I were well compensated, but also felt justified. Thank you McDonald At Law!!

      Back in 2014 I was injured didn’t know what to do but my wife suggested I call Mike McDonald at law I’m not going to say that I really believe in luck but I will say it was the greatest blessing of my entire life that I had the opportunity to pick the best lawyer in Pennsylvania and maybe all of America in Mike McDonald. I needed surgery and Mike came to my home just to make sure that I was OK personally, and he told me not to worry about anything but to just get well he really cares about people and that is something you can’t pay for. Mike’s firm was the most professional operation I have ever had the opportunity to witness over the last 3 1/2 years . All I can say is this if you’ve been injured and you need help there’s only one person that you should call and that’s McDonald at law. From my experience is that when I arrived at his office the first time I met a lawyer and when I left his office the last time I felt like I had a friend. For superior service and expert litigation, remember there’s only one number to call if you ever get hurt it’s McDonald at law.

      Serving Personal Injury Victims in Dauphin, PA

      Nobody expects to suffer a car accident, truck accident, wrongful death, or another personal injury. However, no safety measures can protect you from injury because of someone else’s negligence.

      Dauphin County is the 14th most populated county in Pennsylvania. It is home to the state’s capital city, Harrisburg, PA, where thousands of employees and government workers commute daily. Such a populated county means that more drivers are navigating the roads, resulting in a higher likelihood of accidents caused by motor vehicles.

      Dauphin County Motor Vehicle Accidents by Municipality

      Most accidents occur in the city of Harrisburg, according to PennDot. This is likely because of highly trafficked roads, frequently changing speed limit, and reckless driving. However, other municipalities have a high percentage of motor vehicle accidents that increase the likelihood of a crash. These include:

      • Harrisburg City- 520 accidents (20.55%)
      • Lower Paxton Township- 324 accidents (12.80%)
      • Swatara Township- 313 accidents (12.37%)
      • Derry Township- 230 accidents (9.09%)
      • Susquehanna Township- 185 accidents (7.31%)
      • Lower Swatara Township- 120 accidents (4.74%)

      Dauphin County Motor Vehicle Accidents by Roadway

      Highway 83 is one of the most common roadways for accidents in Pennsylvania. It runs directly through Harrisburg and the surrounding municipalities in Dauphin County. Highway 83 is one of the primary roads people take to get in and out of the city. This highly-trafficked roadway, along with highways 283 and 81, gets especially dangerous at rush hour.

      • Route 222- 278 accidents (10.98%)
      • Route 83- 304 accidents (8.06%)
