If I have been in a car accident, do I need a lawyer?

It is always a good idea to contact an attorney after you have been in a car accident. In Pennsylvania, the state laws that dictate insurance coverage and potential legal recourse after an accident are extremely complicated. Filing an accident claim without an attorney on your side can mean that your case is dismissed. Attorneys are well trained in the law and courtroom rules. Having an attorney helping you in the aftermath of a car accident means that you can take the time to recover while your attorney obtains you the compensation you deserve.

While insurance companies will offer settlements to accident victims, a settlement is usually a lot less than what you could get in compensation with an attorney representing you. You could potentially miss out on compensation. Attorneys are well trained negotiators and are ready to stand up to insurance companies.
