Berger and Green Know How to Build a Strong Case for an Out-of-Court Settlement or Civil Suit
Berger and Green founder Laurence B. Green has over 40 years of experience helping accident victims recover damages through liability insurance claims and personal injury lawsuits. With help from other Clearfield, PA personal injury attorneys from our firm, we can help clients like you pursue compensation after an injury accident.
Our team will:
- Explain your rights
- Handle all communication related to your case
- Identify all potentially liable parties
- Gather and analyze evidence
- Call on expert witnesses who can help us prove your case
- Document your damages to calculate a fair settlement value
- File an insurance claim and/or file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf
We can often reach a fair settlement in these cases without going to court. The at-fault party and their insurer do not want to go to court any more than you do. They do not want to risk having to pay out even more than we demand a fair settlement agreement if they lose the case in court.
Recoverable Damages in a Clearfield, PA Personal Injury Accident
When we investigate your accident, our goals include proving:
- The full range of damages you suffered
Proving the injuries, expenses, and losses you suffered is a key part of this process. The documentation we collect to prove your damages allows us to demand a payout from the insurer or demonstrate the value of your case to the judge and jury.
The damages available for recovery in a personal injury case vary depending on the facts of your case and how you suffered injuries. Some common recoverable injuries include:
- Past and future medical care and related costs
- Ongoing care costs for debilitating injuries
- Past and future lost wages and benefits
- Diminished earning capacity if you cannot return to your career
- Property damages
- Miscellaneous expenses you paid out of pocket
- Pain and suffering and other noneconomic damages
The attorneys from Berger and Green also handle wrongful death cases. You may be eligible to pursue this type of damages if you lost a spouse, parent, child, or other immediate family and suffered economic and noneconomic losses as a result. We can help you understand your options during a free review of your case.
PA’s Statute of Limitations Could Limit How Long You Have to Take Legal Action
Pennsylvania limits how long you have to take legal action after a personal injury accident. You generally have two years to file a civil suit against a negligent party who caused your injuries, although there are numerous factors that can affect this time limit based on the statute of limitations imposed by PA § 5524.
We cannot take legal action after this deadline passes, so it is imperative we get to work on your case with plenty of time left to act. Reach out to us as soon as your injuries stabilize or as soon as you begin to wonder if you have a valid case for compensation. We can review your case for free and help you understand your legal options.
