When trying to navigate the aftermath of a personal injury, people don’t often know where to turn, grappling with physical pain, emotional trauma, and financial hardships. Navigating the complexities of a personal injury claim may feel daunting, overwhelming, or even impossible, especially with uncooperative insurance companies and a complex legal landscape. However, an experienced personal injury attorney can guide you through the process, find the best strategy, and maximize your compensation.
If you or a loved one have suffered a personal injury in Media, PA – including a car accident, motorcycle accident, truck accident, and more – you deserve to see justice, accountability, and rightful compensation. The Law Office of Deborah M. Truscello proudly serves the people of Pennsylvania, providing responsive, reliable, and relentless representation.
The Complexities of Personal Injury Law
Unlike criminal law, in personal injury cases, an attorney isn’t provided for you. That is not to say that having an attorney isn’t equally as important. Some individuals may consider handling their personal injury claim independently, but the legal landscape is complex and requires a comprehensive understanding of local laws, statutes, liability factors, and insurance regulations.
Moreover, insurance companies don’t make this process easy on victims. They are in the business of maximizing profits and minimizing payouts and are known to employ tactics to deny valid claims, diminish pain, and severely undervalue claims. Without legal representation, individuals frequently accept settlements far below the true value of their case, not knowing the full extent of their rights and what they are entitled to.
The Role of Legal Representation
Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney can have a huge impact on the overall outcome of your case. Our team specializes in personal injury cases, backed by years of experience and a proven track record of securing compensation for our clients. Here’s how legal representation can help you maximize your compensation:
- Thorough Investigation: Your attorney will conduct a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding your injury, gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses to build the strongest possible case. If needed your attorney can outsource to a professional investigator and consult expert witnesses to further bolster your case.
- Accurate Valuation: Determining the true value of a personal injury claim requires an in-depth analysis of medical records, projected future treatment, lost wages, future earning capabilities, emotional trauma, and similar damages. The ability to assign a dollar value to a personal injury case requires expertise and experience in the field.
- Skillful Negotiation: Insurance companies often try to settle claims quickly for the minimum amount possible. An attorney skilled at negotiation can ensure that you are not shortchanged and will fight relentlessly to reach a settlement that addresses your present and future needs, ensuring that the full extent of the harm you have suffered is addressed.
- Higher Payout: The Insurance Research Council (IRC) conducted a comprehensive study on insurance claim payments, finding that the services of a personal injury attorney more than pay for themselves when it comes to settlement results. The IRC found that 85% of the participants who received settlements were represented by an attorney, and, when compared to the 15% of unrepresented participants, their settlements were found to be over three and a half times higher.
- Litigation Expertise: In the rare case where an adequate settlement can’t be reached through negotiation, your attorney can take your case to court to ensure that you see justice. It’s important to ensure your attorney has extensive litigation experience and is committed to fighting for your rights before a judge and jury.
