If you were involved in a car accident, a personal injury claim could recover compensation for your injuries. The severity of your injuries and related losses all contribute to the value of your case.
You have the opportunity to bring a personal injury claim when another person’s negligence is responsible for your crash. That doesn’t mean success is guaranteed, however. An auto accident lawyer serving King of Prussia could obtain the financial award you deserve.
How our firm could resolve your injury case
When it comes to resolving an auto accident claim in a favorable way, two possible outcomes could result in the compensation you deserve. The first option is negotiating a favorable settlement for your claim, and the second is to secure a verdict at trial.
Your lawyer will handle the insurance claims process
The most common outcome of any personal injury claim is a negotiated settlement. While settlements are routine with motor vehicle accident claims, securing a fair offer from the insurance company could be easier said than done. Most insurance companies make quick settlement offers that are a fraction of a case’s actual value.
These insurance companies understand that injury victims who have not yet hired attorneys are more likely to accept unreasonable settlement offers. These offers will typically cover the emergency medical bills for an injured victim, without leaving any room for:
- Future costs
- Pain and suffering
- Other losses
We will intervene in negotiations to prevent unfair settlement offers
Our firm can negotiate on your behalf and help you differentiate between a reasonable settlement offer and a poor one. This is because the insurance companies understand that their bully tactics are useless when you have a legal team serving as your advocate.
We can stand with you in court, if the need arises
Sometimes a settlement is simply not an option. Although resolving a case via trial only occurs in a small percentage of car accident claims (according to the American Bar Association), it could be inevitable in some cases.
When a settlement falls apart, securing a verdict at trial is your best opportunity to recover the compensation you deserve. We can help you develop a theory of negligence and use it to secure a favorable outcome during your trial.
Types of compensation for your injuries
Not every type of compensation available in motor vehicle accidents is the same. Multiple damages could be available in any given case. Our firm could advise you on what types of damages might be recoverable.
The healthcare required after a car accident can be expensive. This is especially true in cases where ongoing treatment is necessary for months or years following a crash.
Your personal injury case could recover compensation related to the cost of surgical procedures, emergency room visits, hospitalization, prosthetic limbs, and prescription medications.
Your body is not the only thing likely to suffer damage in a car accident. Your car could also be damaged or even totaled. Given the way modern vehicles are constructed, even a minor collision could result in costly repairs. Your car accident lawsuit could help you recover the cost of either repairing or replacing your damaged vehicle.
Losing income is one of the toughest things about a car accident injury claim. Unfortunately, that is the reality for many people that find themselves too hurt to work after a crash. For some, these injuries could cause them to lose out on weeks or months of pay. An injury claim could replace some of those wages you missed out on during your recovery.
Diminished future earnings
While missing out on wages can be difficult, most of the time, this loss of income is temporary. Some injuries can be severe enough to diminish a person’s earning power for the rest of their life. If your future earnings are diminished due to the severity of your injuries, your compensation claim could make up the difference.
Pain and suffering
The pain that results from a car accident injury could be agonizing. For some, their pain only lasts for a few days or weeks before subsiding. For others, a car accident could bring about the kind of chronic pain that haunts a person for the rest of their life.
Compensation for pain and suffering damages could be available in your personal injury case. Unlike medical bills or other measurable losses, these damages are highly subjective. Your King of Prussia lawyer familiar with car accident cases could prove that you are entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering.
You don’t pay our fees if we don’t win your case
Although it’s in the best interest of anyone involved in a car accident to consider a personal injury claim, not everyone does. In some cases, this is due to the fear of what an injury attorney might cost. The good news is that we operate on a contingency basis and never require any out-of-pocket expenses.
Our firm only recovers our legal fees if we retain a percentage of any compensation recovered on your behalf. In other words, we will never get paid unless you get paid first. This approach removes any risk from allowing an injury attorney to pursue your claim.
You could recover a monetary award for your auto accident claim
Surviving a car accident can be a traumatic experience. Even collisions that do not result in permanent consequences could result in serious hardships in the days and months following an accident. A car accident lawyer taking cases in King of Prussia could reduce the strain that comes with these serious hardships.
