The aftermath of a crash can be confusing, and most people are not familiar with the process of the tactics that insurance companies may use to lower settlements – even if their driver is not at fault for the incident.
An attorney will handle the case for you. This includes:
Performing a thorough investigation. Your attorney will gather all of the evidence from the crash, including accident reports, video and photo surveillance, eyewitness statements, and more.
Handling all negotiations. Your lawyer will be the one to speak to insurance carriers and other parties involved. Insurance companies may twist any statements you make and use them against you to justify a lower settlement or to deny your claim.
Determine how much you are owed. This will involve gathering all of your medical records, evidence of lost wages, and evaluating your pain and suffering. In many cases, an attorney will consult with medical and economic experts who can determine the extent of your injuries and examine how you will be affected in the future.
Work to secure compensation. Your attorney will work with all parties to negotiate a fair settlement. Even if you were at fault for the crash, you may still be entitled to damages. Pennsylvania is a pure comparative negligence state, which means a person can recover damages even if they are up to 99% liable.
