What is Personal Injury?
A personal injury is a physical injury to the body of an accident victim and any accompanying mental or emotional damage. Individuals may seek compensation for emotional injuries in Pennsylvania even if they haven't been physically hurt, but most personal injury claims also involve physical injuries.
A personal injury case is generally based on the negligence of a person or business. An Allentown lawyer may help injured people seek compensation (known as "damages") when their injuries result from someone else's negligence. However, it is not always clear cut on whether you can collect compensation, as it depends on the situation, fault, and insurance.
For instance, Pennsylvania happens to be both a fault and no-fault state in certain personal injury cases, like motor vehicle accidents. The type of insurance policy the drivers have plays a big role in whether someone has the right to pursue compensation after a car accident.
We urge you to call KaplunMarx to discuss your accident to see if you have a case to get compensation.
What Do Personal Injury Attorneys in Allentown Charge?
We do not charge you any upfront fees for hiring our Allentown personal injury lawyers.
Personal law firms like ours bill on a contingency fee basis instead of charging hourly rates. That means that we only get paid our percentage when we successfully recover compensation for our clients through settlements or verdicts.
In the event a personal injury firm does not win compensation for a client, the law firm is not paid for its legal services. Arrangements such as this ensure that personal injury legal services are affordable to all and that law firms will work their hardest for the best outcome possible.
What Type of Compensation May I Be Able to Get?
A personal injury may be able to claim compensation for economic and non-economic losses caused by the responsible party.
Examples of economic losses are:
- Medical bills, ER costs, etc.
- Lost income
- Lost future earnings
- The cost of future medical treatment
- Rehabilitation expenses
- The cost of living with a disability
Many losses are intangible and cannot be measured as easily. For example:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Mental distress and emotional anguish
- And more
You should seek legal representation from an experienced KaplunMarx injury lawyer in Allentown to maximize the value of your claim. Dedicated to pursuing the maximum amount of compensation for our clients, our team will work tirelessly on your behalf.
How Much is My Accident Case Worth?
Each personal injury case is unique, so the value of a claim differs from case to case. In determining the value of an injury claim, a personal injury lawyer considers several factors.
Factors May Include:
- The degree of fault of the accident victim
- Financial losses incurred by the accident victim
- Future financial losses the accident victim might incur
- Depending on the type and extent of the accident victim's injuries
- How long it will take for your injuries to heal
- Whether the accident victim will become permanently disabled
- The emotional toll the injuries took on the victim
- If insurance coverage was available and how much it covered
- Amounts of damages awarded by juries in similar cases
- Trial costs
- Intangible factors (such as jurors' sympathies for one side or the other if the case goes to trial)
Our Allentown attorneys consider these factors when calculating the claim's settlement value based on their previous experience handling similar cases.
Why Do You Need an Experienced Pennsylvania Personal Injury Attorney?
Experiencing a serious injury is a traumatic experience. Don't face the aftermath on your own. Immediately following an injury, you should contact a personal injury attorney in Allentown.
1. Insurance companies are known for denying compensation to victims and their families.
2. You may lose your right to compensation if you miss the deadline (statute of limitations).
3. A claim adjuster may also try to get you to settle as soon as possible. Because settlements are final, they'll aggressively pursue that goal.
4. You can't go back and reopen a settlement if you need more medical treatment or if you find that you are disabled in the future. There should be no settlement in a personal injury case until a doctor deems the injury fully healed or has reached its maximum level of healing.
5. Accident victims can seek the help of a personal injury attorney to determine whether and when to settle their injury claims.
6. Insurance companies love to play tricks, and we know how to use these tactics against them.
7. Getting maximum dollar compensation for your injury case is one of our goals as Allentown personal injury lawyers.
To ensure that you receive the best experience in the courtroom and beyond, you deserve to be represented by experienced and trial-tested injury lawyers. Allow us to fight for your compensation while you concentrate on your recovery.
