Can You Tell Me What My Case Is Worth?
Your case is ultimately worth what we can negotiate with the insurance company or the amount of the cash award granted by a judge and / or a jury. We will review your case in detail to arrive at a figure that we believe the insurance company will pay for your injuries. This is usually dependent upon the type of injury that you have, the type of treatment that you receive, whether or not you make a full recovery, and what your past and future expenses are. All of these factors are important in valuing a case. Generally, we cannot tell you how much your case is worth until you have finished all of your treatment and you know what your future will hold for you. Remember, at Crystle-Allen Law, LLC, we want to resolve your case for the most money because we do not get paid unless you get paid.
What Legal Fees Are There to Represent Me for My Personal Injury Case?
In personal injury matters, we represent people on a contingency fee arrangement. A contingency fee means “no recovery – no fee.” In other words, if we do not make a recovery for you there will be no fee charged. The amount of the contingency fee may vary depending on what matter we are representing you for. We will always discuss the fee with you before representation begins. Also, you will sign a fee agreement which will outline our arrangement. Remember, we do not get paid unless we make a recovery for you.
Should I Speak With Anyone From the Insurance Company or Sign Any Documents They Give to Me?
No. You should only give statements to an insurance adjuster or sign Releases for an insurance company after you have spoken with a qualified personal injury trial lawyer. Unfortunately, if you say the wrong thing or give the wrong information to an insurance company it can, and likely will, be used against you in the future.
Why Do I Need An Attorney?
Just as the insurance company has agents, adjusters, and appraisers representing its interests, you too should have a professional team who is on your side. In addition, our staff of attorneys, case managers, and legal secretaries will take the burden off of your shoulders so that you can focus on recovering from your injuries. Ultimately, we will fight to see that you receive fair compensation for your injuries.
What Is the Difference Between Full-Tort and Limited-Tort Car Insurance?
Those who select full tort coverage on their automobile insurance policy retain the right to bring a claim for pain and suffering if they are injured in a motor vehicle crash. Those who select limited tort generally give up the right to bring such a claim unless you suffer a severe personal injury or permanent impairment of a bodily function. What many consumers don’t realize is how their personal tort selection affects not only their rights but the rights of their family. The tort option you select follows you and every member of your household, both as a driver or as a passenger in your own car or another. Your tort option is with you even when you are walking down the street, but, more importantly, it is with your children everywhere they go. Before you renew your automobile insurance, please examine it carefully. If you have limited tort, we strongly urge you to contact your insurance agent and request a change to full tort, for your sake and that of your family.
Who Is Responsible for Paying for Medical Treatment and Lost Wages Associated With My Injuries From a Car Accident?
Medical expenses and wage loss benefits due to an auto accident injury are considered by your insurance as “no fault,” and each insured looks to his / her own automobile policy for benefits, regardless of the cause of the accident or whether the insured was personally responsible for his injuries. You should also check with your regular health insurance regarding benefits for payment of medical treatment. Additionally, for lost wages, you should check to see if you are eligible for short- or long-term disability payments.
What If the Driver of the Other Vehicle Did Not Have Adequate Insurance to Cover My Losses?
In cases such as this, the best automobile accident attorneys know how to identify other sources of insurance coverage, including underinsured and uninsured policies, employer’s policies, umbrella policies, and, in some cases, even homeowner’s insurance.
Who Will Pay for the Damage to My Car?
Again, you should first check your automobile insurance policy. If you have purchased collision coverage on your policy, you may submit your property damage claim to your own insurer, regardless of how the accident happened or who was at fault. Your insurer will pay for your property damage, less any deductible. In the alternative, you may submit your property damage claim to the insurer for the other driver involved in your accident. This insurer will pay your claim, in full, only upon a determination that its insured was responsible for the accident.
How Much Time Do I Have to File a Lawsuit for Damages From a Car Accident?
Pennsylvania has a statute of limitations applicable to all personal injury claims. Generally, you have two years from the date of your accident within which to settle your claim or file a lawsuit.
Is There a Fee to Consult With an Attorney About My Case?
No. At Crystle-Allen Law, LLC, we provide a free consultation. This can be done either by telephone or in person depending on the circumstances. We will review your case without any charge to you and advise you if we feel that we can represent you and pursue a case on your behalf. If we decide that there is a case and you wish to pursue it, we will then move forward on a contingency fee basis.
Motorcycle Accident — $1.3 Million Jury Verdict
We represented a motorcyclist who was seriously injured when the defendant driver pulled out across three lanes of travel into the path of our client. The defendant’s insurance company denied liability, and we filed suit in the Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas. Our client had previously worked as a bus mechanic and, as a result of injuries sustained in the accident, including bilateral knee and wrist injuries requiring surgeries, was unable to return to his job.
The Court bifurcated the trial, requiring us to first present the liability issues and, if we won, in the second phase of the trial we could present the damages aspect of the case. The jury first found the defendant driver 75% liable for the accident, and in the damages phase of the trial awarded $1.3 million to our client.
Motor Vehicle Accident – Jury Verdict $760,000; with Delay Damages, $812,000
Our client was a working mother of adult children who sustained debilitating back injuries when the vehicle in which she was a passenger was struck from behind by a vehicle driven erratically by an older man. The defendant driver’s insurance company denied liability for the accident, alleging that the man had a sudden medical emergency.
After extensive discovery, including the review of medical records and depositions of the defendant’s medical doctors, the case went to trial. We were able to demonstrate that the man had been noncompliant in the care of his medical condition and therefore could not rely on a sudden medical emergency defense. On the first day of trial, the insurance company for the man conceded liability for the accident but still denied that the accident had caused any injury to our client. We were able to prove to the jury that the accident did, in fact, cause our client’s injuries and disability. The jury awarded $760,000 in damages, which was later increased to $812,000 with the inclusion of delay damages.
