Why Should I Hire an Attorney?
At Metzger Wickersham, we understand that car accident victims are concerned about their expenses, especially those related to medical bills. If you were in an accident and sustained property damage and injuries, you will need to make an insurance claim to get the compensation you deserve. Unfortunately, insurance companies often make arguments to reduce or deny the victim's claim.
Our firm has heard all these arguments and knows how to respond to them point by point to make sure our clients get the money they are owed. If you are running into trouble with an insurance company, pursue your rights and let a capable car accident lawyer in Pennsylvania represent your interests.
We proudly serve accident victims across Pennsylvania, with offices in Harrisburg, Lancaster, Shippensburg, Pottsville, Wilkes-Barre, Williamsport, and York. You can get started on your case with a free consultation!
How do I Know How Much My Case is Worth?
Every case is different, but rest assured we're here to evaluate your claim and help you determine how much compensation you are entitled to recover. We have years of experience dealing with insurance companies, and we know Pennsylvania insurance laws inside and out. It's not always a simple or short process, but it's our job to protect our injured clients' best interests.
We have experience with cases involving a wide variety of injuries, including these:
Highway Car Accidents Involving trucks & Commercial Vehicles
Many car accidents occur on the highway and often involve 18-wheelers or large trucks of some kind. Due to their large size and weight, trucks can pose a great risk to surrounding drivers when they are not properly maintained or safely driven. Additionally, recovering compensation after a truck accident can be incredibly complex.
Protected by aggressive lawyers, trucking companies are reluctant to fork over compensation. In some cases, the truck driver or the truck manufacturer may also be at fault. With our help, you can fight for just compensation from the liable party.
Common Injuries from Car Accidents
Car accident injuries can vary widely in degrees of severity. All injuries - from whiplash to fractures, bruising to paralysis - may warrant compensation when they've been caused by someone's negligence. With the help of Metzger Wickersham, you can see if you are eligible for compensation and pursue your rights with a team of skilled attorneys and other legal professionals. We are wholly dedicated to the success of our clients and will fight tirelessly on their behalf.
Backed by a legacy of success since 1888, our firm can capably represent your rights. Call (888) 286-2850 to learn more about your case today. All calls are answered 24/7!
Injuries after a Car Accident
Receiving medical care should be your top priority after being in an accident. Even if you don't feel hurt right away, getting checked out is important. Going to a doctor or hospital is vital not only for your health and well-being, but also to strengthen your personal injury claim.
Injuries suffered as a result of auto accidents can include:
If eligible for compensation, you may be able to obtain damages that cover medical expenses, lost wages, and more. Our attorneys can present you with your legal options.
If you are injured as a pedestrian, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries. Remember to get as much information as possible regarding the accident.
Be sure to take note of the following:
- Names and contact information of witnesses
- Names and insurance information of the drivers involved
In addition, be prepared to answer questions about whether or not you followed traffic rules, used proper crossing locations, and other safety concerns. Although pedestrians often have the right of way, supporting evidence will be necessary in order to prove that the driver involved in the accident acted negligently.
If you were injured as a passenger in a motor vehicle accident, you may have a claim against all at-fault parties; this includes the operators of any of the cars involved in the accident. However, if you get into a car knowing that the driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you may have "assumed the risk" of being in an accident.
