Car accidents are dangerous, frightening, and often devastating. If another driver’s negligence has left you injured, you’re likely at a loss for how to move forward. An experienced Pennsylvania car accident lawyer can help. While you attend to the important work of recovering from your injuries, allow your dedicated attorney to help navigate your legal claim toward the compensation to which you’re entitled.
When it comes to car insurance, Pennsylvania is a state. That means you have a choice when it comes to purchasing car insurance:
A traditional policy is more expensive and provides coverage based on who’s at fault in causing an accident. If this is the kind of policy you carry, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will take on your claim, and you’ll be allowed to pursue compensation including damages for the pain and suffering the accident caused you to endure.
A no-fault policy is less expensive, and it means that your own insurance company will cover your claim. These types of policies covers you no matter who’s at fault for the accident, but it only cover you for financial damages, except in the case of extremely serious injuries.
Pennsylvania’s car insurance system is complicated and unique to Pennsylvania. An experienced car accident attorney will carefully analyze the elements of your claim and help ensure that it is resolved fairly.
If you’ve suffered injuries that were caused by another driver’s negligence, it can be devastating and overwhelming. Don’t hesitate to seek help from an experienced Pennsylvania car accident attorney. At The Levin Firm, our dedicated attorneys are here to help.
Remember when you’ve been in a car accident that an insurance company—even your own insurance company—may not prioritize paying you full compensation for your claim. Insurance companies are in business for profit and often use delay and negotiation tactics intended to minimize payout on your claim. Although you’ve been injured and likely have medical bills piling up, resist taking a lowball settlement offer from an insurance company. An experienced car accident lawyer will fight for your rights and for full compensation by dealing with the insurance company on your behalf.
Financial damages associated with a car accident can be extensive, from the cost of replacing your vehicle to medical expenses and lost wages. If you’ve suffered a serious injury, your medical expenses can include:
These medical expenses add up quickly. In addition, if you need time away from work to recover from your injuries, or are unable to return to your previous employment, you may have additional damages:
These factors can also be critical to your claim. If you’re unable to return to your job in your former capacity, it can significantly affect your career. This means not only diminished earning potential and loss of future wages, but may have negative impacts on your sense of identity. Many people whose sense of self is closely tied to their career have a particularly difficult time coping with injuries that impede returning to work.
Car accidents are upsetting and often overwhelming. If you’ve been injured, you should first and foremost seek medical attention. If possible, have a friend, family member, or bystander take photos and collect information at the scene of the accident. Remember, too, that you can contact a Pennsylvania car accident attorney right away to help collect and preserve important evidence.
There are several forms of evidence that may be critical to your case:
A narrative in your own words that tells how the accident happened, with as much detail as you remember, recorded as soon after the accident as possible. It may be easier to dictate a narrative using your phone, then reduce it to writing at a later time.
Collecting this evidence as soon as possible after an accident can go a long way towards supporting your claim. In addition, an experienced car accident law firm will have the resources to conduct a thorough investigation and collect additional evidence regarding your accident, injuries, and claim.
