Quite simply, yes. And there are some very good reasons why you should not delay.
When you suffer serious injuries in a crash, there are many variables to consider. What caused the accident? How long will it take you to recover? Have you suffered any possible permanent disability? Did the other driver carry enough insurance? Is the insurance adjustor trying to get you to settle quickly?
These are all questions that require legal expertise and research to answer. A good Pennsylvania motor vehicle accident attorney can be sure they are all carefully considered and advise you of your best course of action. He or she can:
- Represent you in all dealings with adjustors, courts, and interviews.
- Make sure all filing deadlines are met on time.
- Research your case and, if necessary, collect medical and crash reports to support your claim.
- Prove who was at fault in the accident, whether it be a government agency responsible for the condition of the road, another driver, or a mechanical defect.
It costs you nothing to consult a Pennsylvania personal injury attorney who specializes in motor vehicle accidents. Because he or she works on a contingency basis, the fee is based on a percentage of the case settlement or trial amount awarded. And an initial consultation is always free.
