How Can a Clarion, PA Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me?
With a lawyer from our firm on your team, you’ll be able to focus on other matters while your lawyer manages legal matters for you. You won’t have to communicate with the insurer at all or resolve your case with them. Your lawyer will take on every task involved in resolving your case, including the following:
Identifying and Valuating Your Claimable, Compensable Damages
You may have many damages you know you can claim. However, there may be many more you don’t know you can claim, such as lost work benefits. Your lawyer can help you identify all of the damages you can claim so you can be compensated for them.
It’s easy to determine the value of financial damages, but not so easy to valuate non-financial damages, such as loss of consortium. However, your lawyer will have various methods for attributing monetary values to these damages. Generally, insurance companies recognize and approve of these methods.
Building Your Case and Establishing Liability
Evidence is needed in order to identify a liable party and build a case against them. Your lawyer will collect evidence of your damages, such as your medical history and your pay stubs, as well as evidence of the at-fault party’s liability, such as traffic camera footage and information from a vehicle’s event data recorder. Your lawyer may also get invaluable corroborating evidence for your case, such as testimony from an accident reconstructionist.
To establish liability, your lawyer will also have to show the elements of negligence in your case against the party. These include duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages.
Negotiating Your Settlement or Litigating for a Court Verdict
Sometimes, an insurance company will negotiate in good faith and offer a fair settlement. Other times, an insurer will avoid their responsibility for compensating a claimant or offer a low settlement. Your lawyer will know how to deal with such behavior. For instance, your lawyer could remind the insurer of the corroborating evidence for your case, or your lawyer could threaten the insurer with a lawsuit.
If the insurer doesn’t cooperate with your lawyer, your lawyer will litigate your case. Litigation entails filing a lawsuit and arguing the case to a judge. Sometimes, litigation also involves hiring experts for their testimonies.
Filing a Lawsuit in Pennsylvania
Something else your lawyer will do for you is help you meet the deadline for a lawsuit in Pennsylvania. Right now, a lawsuit may or may not be your best option for getting compensated. If not, a lawsuit may become your best option at a point in your case, so your lawyer will get to work on your case quickly and keep it progressing in order to meet the lawsuit filing deadline.
In Pennsylvania, the deadline for a personal injury lawsuit is within two years from the date of your incident, according to Pa. C.S.A. § 5524. There is a similar deadline for a wrongful death lawsuit.
