A car accident lawyer from our law firm will give you straight, simple answers about medical payments coverage, property damage, and lost wages, as well as assist you in completing necessary paperwork.
Whether you need help getting money for medical bills and car repairs, or you need someone to step in and deal with the insurance company, we’re here to help get you back on your feet.
DO YOU HAVE A CLAIM?
After a car accident, you may be confused about whether or not you have a claim for compensation. To be eligible to collect damages, your accident must meet two criteria:
The accident was at least partially caused by another party’s negligence.
The accident caused you or a family member to suffer serious physical injuries.
Our Pennsylvania and West Virginia car accident attorneys can answer any questions you may have about what constitutes negligence and what it means for an injury to be “severe.” If your attorney determines that your accident meets both of these criteria, we will immediately begin building your claim.
WHAT TO DO WHEN THE INSURANCE COMPANY CALLS YOU
Once they are notified of your accident, representatives from either your insurance or the at-fault party’s insurance company may contact you. It’s best if you avoid speaking with them. Innocent comments can be manipulated to make it look like the accident was your fault or used to claim that your injuries aren’t severe. They may also try to pressure you into quickly signing a settlement worth far less than you actually need.
An experienced Mike Metro and Associates auto accident attorney will take into account your current and future medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses, so you get the compensation you need to cover the true costs of your accident. We’re used to dealing with insurance company tactics, so when the insurance company calls, hang up and contact us instead. We’ll help you figure out whether or not a settlement offer is fair, and we’ll talk to the insurance company for you.
