How Will a Kaplunmarx Attorney Handle Your Injury Claim?
When you are recovering from a personal injury, and you’re not able to work, your medical bills can start piling up – along with your regular monthly obligations. You must have the reimbursement that you are legally entitled to receive.
Insurance companies, however, will sometimes treat injury victims wrongly by delaying their pay-outs or even by denying their injury claims. At KaplunMarx, we have considerable experience fighting for injury victims and confronting the insurance companies.
We know the tactics that insurance companies use, and we know what it takes to prevail on your behalf. An experienced personal injury attorney at KaplunMarx will work hard to help you win every dollar of the compensation that is rightfully yours.
What Can You Expect When You File a Personal Injury Claim?
Without any details, we can’t say how much your personal injury claim will be worth, but here is how the personal injury process works.
An injured victim of negligence in Pennsylvania is entitled – to start with – to reimbursement for particular economic damages: lost wages, medical bills, and related costs like transportation to medical appointments or paying someone to help watch your children while you’re injured.
It’s harder to place a dollar value on non-economic damages like personal pain and suffering. Courts use several formulas to calculate non-economic damages.
One widely used method is to multiply your economic damages by a figure from 1 to 5; multiply by one for minor damages, by 3 for moderate damage, and by 5 for catastrophic or disabling injuries. This can give you a rough “ballpark” estimate of what you can expect to receive.
How Long Do Personal Injury Claims Take to Resolve?
Let’s say that another driver clearly runs through a red light and smashes into your vehicle. Witnesses and security video confirm that the other motorist was negligent. If your injuries aren’t too serious, a simple case like this can often be resolved in only a few weeks.
Moreover, you probably won’t even have to go to court. A KaplunMarx attorney will work with the other driver’s lawyer and insurance company to resolve your claim quickly and privately.
More complicated personal injury cases may take a few months to resolve. The most difficult cases – when liability is disputed or when multiple parties and attorneys are involved – go to court and may take a year or more to resolve.
Your attorney will offer advice, but it will be up to you alone to reject or accept various settlement offers, so obviously, if you hold out for more, or if you take your case to court, it’s going to take longer.
Is There a Deadline for Filing a Personal Injury Claim?
In both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is two years. If you do not act within two years of the date of your injury, you lose the right to take legal action.
But when you can’t work, and the bills are mounting, you must speak at once with a Berks County personal injury attorney. The sooner you contact KaplunMarx, the more likely it is that your claim will prevail and you’ll receive the full compensation amount that you’re entitled to.
