Get The Help You Need After An Auto Accident
If you were seriously injured in a car accident caused by someone else, you deserve full and fair compensation for your losses. You have the right to seek compensation for medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, property damage, and pain and suffering. In order to maximize your ability to recover the amount you deserve, the guidance of an experienced personal injury lawyer is invaluable.
At DiLoreto, Cosentino & Bolinger, we offer skilled representation to automobile accident victims in Franklin County and throughout Central Pennsylvania. Since 1982, we have successfully handled thousands of automobile wreck cases, helping clients recover the compensation they need and deserve.
Our lawyers handle cases involving truck, car and motorcycle accidents involving drunk driving and other forms of distracted driving. We understand the tactics insurance companies use to avoid paying legitimate claims, and we know how to build strong cases to overcome them.
Serious Representation For Serious Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries
In Pennsylvania, an injured person cannot receive compensation if he or she is found to be 51% or more at fault in the car wreck. Insurance companies are well-aware of this rule; it gives them incentive to avoid paying a claim by trying to shift as much blame onto the injured victim as is possible.
That is why our Chambersburg car accident attorneys work with accident reconstructionists, engineers and other experts when preparing and presenting cases. We work diligently to uncover all the facts and show that you truly deserve compensation. For our efforts, we have recognized by former clients and our peers in the legal community. Our attorneys have been recognized for their skill and ability, including selection in the list of Pennsylvania Super Lawyer, two of Pennsylvania’s Top 100 Trial Lawyers, and an AV-Preeminent* rating through Martindale-Hubbell.
From broken bones to brain injuries to fatal car crash cases, you can rely on us to do everything we can to achieve the result you deserve. While we are representing you, we can also answer your important questions, such as:
How Much Is My Car Accident Claim Worth?
Your motor vehicle collision claim should reflect the current and future costs of your injuries. Our goal as your legal representation is to maximize your settlement by ensuring it includes every relevant cost from your injuries. Common examples of these costs include lost income, loss of future earning potential, renovating or relocating to accommodate your disabilities, medical expenses, physical and emotional therapy, and pain and suffering.
Insurance companies will work tirelessly to minimize the amount of money they pay a car accident victim, including by offering a lowball settlement offer that does not consider the full cost of your injuries. When we represent you, we will negotiate on your behalf to earn the ideal outcome in your case. If negotiations do not result in the outcome you deserve, you can trust in us to fight for you through litigation.
How Long Does It Take To Get Compensation After A Car Crash?
Typically, it can take a year and a half to resolve a car accident claim. If negotiations with the insurance company go well, it can take less time, and if litigation is necessary, it can take longer.
A lot also depends on how long you wait to file a claim. You have two years to file a claim in most cases. However, the sooner you file your claim, the sooner you can expect a resolution.
The length of resolving a car wreck claim depends on a lot of unique factors. If the defendant in your case is not agreeable with negotiations, filing a lawsuit and taking your case to trial for a judge and jury to decide may be the best option available.
While our goal is to secure your fair compensation in as little time as possible without sacrificing the quality of the outcome, it can still take some time to resolve your claim.
