Allentown Car Accident Attorneys
Allentown is the third largest city in Pennsylvania. With such a large population, there is an increase in the need for adequate transportation infrastructure. Without a regional rail system, the use of highways to travel from Catasauqua to Bethlehem and from Wescosville to Fountain Hill is essential. However, it is hard to imagine a day where there is not an accident on Route 22 or Route 78.
When you are involved in a car accident in Allentown or any part of the Lehigh Valley, the two things you can’t control are (1) how seriously you will be injured; and (2) whether the person causing the collision will have enough insurance coverage for the damages, losses and harms they have caused. The personal injury attorneys at Drake, Hileman & Davis have been helping the seriously injured navigate through all aspects of these types of claims for more than 30 years.
PROVING FAULT IN A CAR CRASH
Drake, Hileman & Davis has a team of personal injury lawyers in Allentown who know what needs to be established in order to prove who is at fault in a car accident. We have used not only witness testimony and police investigation analysis, but in the right case, accident reconstruction and computer animation to recreate how a car collision occurred. Frequently, some of the best evidence comes from photographs taken at the scene, showing skid marks, crash intrusion and vehicle resting locations.
While Pennsylvania is a partial no-fault state when it comes to the payment of medical expenses and wage loss, the no-fault system does not relieve the at-fault driver from paying for all of losses and harms that he or she caused.
PAIN AND SUFFERING COMPENSATION
While the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier is required to compensate the injured party for the losses and harms its insured caused, there is no “standard” amount to compensate an injured party for pain and suffering. The insurance company is always looking to pay as little as possible and that is why it is important to have qualified, competent and capable attorneys, like the personal injury attorneys at Drake, Hileman & Davis, to represent you if you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a car accident.
DEALING WITH INSURANCE COMPANIES
At Drake, Hileman & Davis, we had many experiences where the insurance company has tried to settle a personal injury claim with an unrepresented party for less than fair value. Once our client retained our services, we were able to properly evaluate the claim and submit a demand to the insurance company consistent with the true value of the losses sustained. In one recent case, the settlement amount (once we became involved) was double what the insurance company had originally offered to the unrepresented client. If you have been seriously injured in a car crash in Allentown or anywhere in the Lehigh Valley, you need a team of car accident attorneys who will fight on your side, with the knowledge of what is fair and just.
While we like to believe that everyone will treat each other fairly without an attorney’s involvement, unfortunately that is not the case. When you are seriously injured in an auto accident, you need a team of personal injury attorneys with both the knowledge and know-how to recover compensation for all of the losses and harms you sustained.
While aggressive representation is important, it is also important to be able to treat clients with the care and compassion they deserve, during a difficult and challenging time. One interesting compliment we received from a client following the successful completion of their claim was that we were “the opposite of what gives lawyers a bad name.” Another client told us “don’t ever change.” To see more of the comments from our clients, see the link below.
While we appreciate all of the kind words we have received from our clients over the years, we also take seriously our responsibility to achieve notable results. To see some of our verdicts, awards and settlements, see the link below.
