Philadelphia Car Accident Attorney
Being involved in a car accident is scary experience. Although every car accident is different, most causes of car accidents include a similar failure of safety on the other driver. In Pennsylvania, most car accidents are rear end collisions, improper left turn collisions, improper lane change collisions, disregarding red lights, failure to stop at stop sign collisions, failure to yield collisions, T-bone accidents and head on collisions. Many of these accidents are caused by distracted driving when another driver is distracted by using a cell phone or GPS, texting or typing. Many of times car accidents are caused by speeding, drunk driving (DUI), overworked truck drivers and vehicle failure.
Regardless of the cause of the accident, it is important that you hire a car accident attorney that is not afraid to battle a large insurance company or corporation. Car accidents can cause life changing injuries that result in broken bones, muscle and tendon tears, surgery and sometimes death. Even accidents that do not result in visible property damage to vehicles can cause permanent damage to your spine such as a disc herniation or protrusion requiring months of therapy.
In addition to pain and suffering, injuries from car accidents can cause economic damages such as out of pocket medical bills, lost wages and insurance liens.
Many injury victims’ claims are denied by insurance companies for various reasons. We can help you if your claim was denied for any of the following reasons:
- Liability (The insurance company is blaming you for causing the accident)
- Limited Tort (We accept all clients with limited tort insurance)
- Prior Injuries (We represent many clients with pre-existing injuries)
- Minimal Property Damage to the Vehicle
- Prior Lawsuits
- Severity and Seriousness of Injury
- No Insurance Coverage
Dealing with a car insurance company can be a difficult process. When recovering from an accident related injury, it is important to have an experienced attorney represent you to make sure you are receiving all of the benefits and compensation that you are entitled to.
Although most personal injury claims do settle, you want an attorney who analyzes every case as if your case is going to trial from the first time you meet your lawyer. It is critical that your compensation for all accident-related damages will be maximized and not settle for less.
Whether you are a driver, passenger, pedestrian, motorcycle operator or bicyclist, you have the right to seek compensation if you suffer an injury due to a negligent driver. However, every claim is time sensitive and your claim will be barred forever if not filed by a certain deadline.
