The Pennsylvania Accident Claims Process
When you have been injured in an accident, you may be unsure of where to turn when it comes to recovering compensation for your medical expenses and other losses. It can be tempting to accept the first settlement offer that comes your way from an insurance provider. However, it is always wise to seek legal advice before taking any action that may limit your ability to seek additional compensation, if needed.
At Dallas W. Hartman, P.C., our Pittsburgh personal injury lawyers can help guide you through the Pennsylvania accident claims process. We will let you know whether a settlement offer is in your best interest and help you explore all potential sources of compensation for your injuries.
Strengthening Your Accident Claim
When you are injured in a motor vehicle accident or any other type of accident, the first place you will likely turn will be to your insurance provider and/or the insurance provider of the party whose negligence led to the accident. Regardless of which insurance company you are dealing with, it is important to have a thorough record of all of the events surrounding the accident, including the events leading up to the accident and the recollections of any passengers or witnesses to the accident.
It is also important to keep a detailed record of your medical symptoms resulting from your injuries, as well as records of doctor’s appointments, time taken off from work and all bills related to your medical care. Our attorneys can let you know what type of information is most helpful for strengthening your accident claim.
Do Not Delay Seeking Legal Help
We understand that having to contend with legal matters while you are attempting to recover from your injuries can be stressful and overwhelming. However, it is important to seek qualified legal advice as soon as possible following an accident. The statute of limitations only affords a brief window in which to file a personal injury lawsuit.
We can help guide you through the process and negotiate with insurance companies to help ensure that you receive the fairest possible settlement. In every case, we work hard to reach a settlement without going to court. However, if a trial is the only way to help you get the best chance at full and fair compensation, we are prepared to zealously advocate on your behalf.
