The Cost of An Auto Accident Claim

When a permanent disability is involved, the costs of a claim can be very large.  Victims may need specialized care for a lifetime—at the same time, their ability to earn is reduced or even eliminated.

In many cases, an experienced auto accident attorney can enter into negotiations with opposing attorneys to achieve a settlement that covers all past and future anticipated expenses without the stress of a courtroom trial.  But when dealing with other attorneys, you should never assume you can handle negotiations on your own—a skilled auto accident lawyer in Pennsylvania has the knowledge of state law and the ability to draw on the experience of past cases to ensure you pursue the fullest possible compensation for past, present, and future expenses.

A courtroom trial may be needed

An auto accident lawyer in Pennsylvania often recommends settlement as a way for clients to achieve a fair settlement while avoiding the potential stress of trial.  But individuals who win in court typically benefit from the generosity of juries and obtain substantially larger awards.  If a Pennsylvania auto accident has left you or a loved one severely disabled—or if out-of-court negotiations are not achieving the settlement you need—your attorney may recommend taking your case to court.

When a permanent disability is involved, the costs of a claim can be very large.  Victims may need specialized care for a lifetime—at the same time, their ability to earn is reduced or even eliminated.
