Why Should I Hire an Attorney?
At Metzger Wickersham, we understand that car accident victims are concerned about their expenses, especially expenses 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 represent your interests.

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.
Highway Car Accidents
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.
