The process begins with a free consultation.
How Much Is My Motor Vehicle Accident Claim Worth?
Your motor vehicle collision claim is worth the combined total of your medical bills, lost wages and other costs that resulted from the accident.
In addition to lost income and medical bills, common examples of these costs include loss of future earning potential, renovating or relocating to accommodate car accident-related disabilities, physical and emotional therapy, and pain and suffering.
Insurance companies will work tirelessly to minimize the amount of money they pay a motor vehicle accident victim, including by making a lowball settlement offer that does not consider the full cost of your car accident injuries. When we represent you, we will negotiate on your behalf to earn the ideal motor vehicle accident insurance settlement check in your case. If negotiations do not result in the outcome you deserve, you can trust us to fight for you through trial.
Our goal as your legal representation is to maximize your car accident settlement check by ensuring it includes every relevant cost.
How Long Does It Take To Get Compensation After A Motor Vehicle Crash?
Typically, it can take a year and a half to resolve an auto accident claim. If negotiations with the insurance company go well, it can take less time, and if litigation or trial is necessary, it can take longer.
A lot also depends on how long you wait to file a car accident 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.
While our lawyers’ 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.
Does The Cause Of A Car Accident Matter In A Personal Injury Claim?
When it comes to personal injury claims and holding someone accountable for your injuries, determining fault is the primary concern. However, the cause of the accident does tie directly to the fault in the crash. Understanding how an accident happened, whether it was because of drunk driving, ignoring the rules of the road, texting while driving, or speeding, can help us hold the liable party accountable.
Experienced Representation In All Types Of Auto Accidents
Over the years we have represented injured drivers, we have seen personal injury claims from all types of car crashes, and we understand that each type of accident has unique needs.
For example, motorcycle accidents are often the result of a driver not seeing the motorcycle before the accident, and commercial truck accidents often require additional efforts to take on the company’s legal and insurance teams to secure fair compensation.
When an accident involves someone taking a walk or riding their bike, the medical compensation often needs to be much higher than in a fender bender. Whatever type of motor vehicle accident you experienced, we can develop a custom-tailored plan to protect your needs.
Fault, Evidence And Skill In Motor Vehicle Crash Claims
In Pennsylvania, an injured person cannot receive compensation if he or she is found to be 51% or more at fault in the auto wreck. Insurance companies are well aware of this rule; it gives them an incentive to avoid paying a claim by trying to shift as much blame onto the injured victim as possible.
That is why our Chambersburg car accident attorneys work with accident reconstructionists, engineers and other experts when preparing and presenting motor vehicle accident cases. We work diligently to uncover all the facts and show that you truly deserve compensation.
For our efforts, we have been 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 Lawyers, two of Pennsylvania’s Top 100 Trial Lawyers, and an AV Preeminent* peer-review 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.
