In many cases, it is worth getting a lawyer for a minor car accident. A personal injury law firm like ours can provide services and representation that make filing your insurance claim and securing a payout easier. Our car accident attorneys offer free case reviews, so they can help you understand if you may want a lawyer to navigate the process on your behalf.
Even if a collision seems minor in the first hours or days, pursuing compensation may not be straightforward. You may have serious injuries that are not apparent. Having an attorney from our team on your side can ensure you properly document your losses, understand the value of your case, and meet the appropriate deadlines.
Protecting Your Rights with Help From a Car Accident Attorney From Our Firm
As car accident attorneys who have handled many cases, we understand that the insurance company does not want to pay out any more than they have to. Adjusters often look for reasons to decrease the recoverable damages their company has to pay.
Your lawyer will protect your right to seek appropriate compensation based on the facts of your case. They will also determine if you can seek damages beyond your no-fault policy by holding the at-fault driver liable.
Hiring a personal injury attorney ensures you have someone on your side, fighting for your best interests: throughout the claims process or in court if that becomes necessary.

Your Lawyer Can Identify Your Recoverable Damages
Recovering damages requires you to provide documentation, no matter if you file a no-fault claim or pursue a payout based on the at-fault driver’s liability policy. In general, this documentation includes paperwork such as:
- Medical bills
- Proof of missed income
- Receipts from out-of-pocket expenses
Victims sometimes overlook covered expenses while gathering this evidence. An attorney from our team will know how to identify common expenses covered in other cases. This could mean recovering damages you might not notice on your own.
You May Also Seek Compensation for Non-Economic Damages in Some Cases
If you file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver, you can also seek non-economic damages. These are the non-economic damages you suffer because of your accident and injuries, including physical pain and emotional suffering.
An attorney from our law firm can help you understand how much these damages may be worth in your case.
Our Attorneys Can Help You Prove Fault and Liability
One of the most helpful ways that our lawyers can affect your car accident case is through the firm’s investigation. When an attorney from our team handles a traffic collision case, they look into what happened and who is responsible. They will take steps to prove negligence and liability.
Their investigation will include gathering evidence to show the at-fault driver acted carelessly and caused the accident. Examples include:
- Interviews with witnesses
- The traffic accident report filed by law enforcement
- A survey of the scene
- Video of the accident
- Relevant medical records
Our car accident law firm will know what it takes to build a strong argument. We can develop a case with the necessary support to show the insurer’s policyholder caused the crash.
If the case goes to trial, this evidence will show the judge and jury what happened, that the defendant is responsible, and support getting a verdict and court award.
You Can Work with a Personal Injury Lawyer From Our Team at no Upfront Costs
Our car accident lawyers provide complimentary consultations and handle insurance claims based on contingency. Victims do not need to pay attorney’s fees from their own accounts. Instead, your lawyer receives a percentage of the financial recovery they secure.
Attorneys also develop personal injury lawsuits and represent their clients at trial based on contingency fees. If they do not secure compensation for an accident victim, the firm does not get paid.
It is important to act quickly if you believe you deserve a payout after a traffic accident. There are steps to take before filing a lawsuit, including:
- Gathering evidence to prove liability
- Documenting damages
- Filing an insurance claim
- Negotiating for an appropriate payout
- Deciding if a lawsuit is needed
If you need to take the case to trial, Pa. C.S.A. § 5524 generally only gives victims two years to file the paperwork. However, exceptions to this law could shorten how long you can wait.
