According to a survey of 80,000 cases conducted by The Insurance Research Council, people who hire a lawyer to represent them in claims get an average settlement that was 3.5 times larger than those without representation. That is the difference between a settlement worth $100,000 and one worth $350,000.

Choosing the right law firm is the most important decision you will make if you or a loved one becomes injured in an accident. When your life changes in a split second due to another driver’s actions, having someone to turn to for accurate information is critical. 

Suddenly, you’re faced with a series of overwhelming questions such as:

  1. Who will pay my medical bills?

  2. Will I be reimbursed for my lost wages?

  3. Will I have access to a rental car while my car is being repaired?

The answers to these questions are often confusing and not something that you should have to answer on your own. That is our job.  Let us remove the stress and anxiety from your life by handling your claim. That way, you can focus on what is most important – getting better!

No. If you are not at fault, the insurance company cannot increase your premiums or cancel your policy.

Although it seems somewhat odd, the medical benefits under your automobile insurance must be used first to pay for any treatments that you require for injuries sustained in an accident. Under Pennsylvania law you are required to have a minimum of $5,000 in medical benefits under your automobile insurance policy. While this seems to be a small amount of coverage, the law limits the amount that a health care provider can charge for treatment that is caused by injuries sustained in an automobile accident. This increases the amount of treatment that the medical benefits under your automobile insurance policy will provide to you and members of your family.

Yes. as long as you are seeking car for medical treatment related to the motor vehicle accident, and it is considered reasonable and necessary, you are able to use the medical provider of your choice.

Yes. If the prescription is medically necessary and directly related to injuries resulting from your motor vehicle accident then they will be reimbursed.

Make a copy of the bill for your records and then send it to your auto insurance claims representative. In most cases you may instruct the care provider to send the bills directly to your insurance company.

In Pennsylvania, if you chose full tort coverage, you have the right to chose to pursue a claim for all damages permitted by law. If you chose limited tort coverage, it is possible that your ability to pursue a claim for certain damages may be limited.

It is possible that you may be entitled to a rental car. However, there are no clear answers to this question as it depends on the individual circumstances of both parties.

For most people losing your wages can mean falling behind on mortgage payments, utility bills, and the ability to pay for basic services. While all auto insurance policies sold on the market are required by law to provide at least $5,000 in medical benefits, there is no such minimum requirement for lost wage benefits. However, Lost Wage benefits can be purchased and we will work with you to determine whether you have the ability to make a claim for these benefits.

These are optional benefits that you can purchase to provide a source of compensation in the event that the person who caused the accident did not have insurance.

Yes. You should always wear your seat belt as it is the law. However, insurance benefits will payout even if you were not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.

It is important to know that no 2 claims are the same.  Much of this answer depends upon your recovery. It is not wise to enter into settlement negotiations until you have fully recovered from your injuries or reached your maximum medical improvement.  Unfortunately, this often takes time.  We will continue to monitor your condition and proceed as quickly as possible once the extent of your recovery becomes clear.

 If you have already posted something, it is important that you not take it down.  However, if you have not posted anything, we strongly recommend that you not do so in the future.  This is because it will be best for you to have your claim handled outside of public view.

Stages of a Personal Injury Claim


Contact All Responsible Insurance Companies

It is essential that we promptly notify your insurance company and the insurance company for the person who caused the accident.  It is important to understand that the other driver’s  insurance company does not represent you. Therefore, it is best for us to handle all of the communications concerning your claim.
Make sure that you do not sign anything or provide a statement before speaking with us.

Track Medical Bills

Under Pennsylvania law your automobile insurance company will pay for medical treatments directly arising as a consequence of your accident.  This is true even when the accident is not your fault. We will help you establish a medical claim with your automobile insurance carrier and make certain that your medical bills are paid.  The last thing that you need to worry about is collection notices.

Filing of a Lawsuit

Sometimes filing a lawsuit is necessary.  If we file a lawsuit for you, rest assured that our firm has the experience and the resources to handle your lawsuit.
