What Sets Metzger Wickersham Apart From Other Pennsylvania Personal Injury Firms?
Hiring an attorney is not a decision that should be taken lightly. However,
when it comes to choosing a personal injury lawyer in Central or Northeastern
Pennsylvania, there are dozens of law firms out there. How do you know
which one is right for you? Why should you choose Metzger Wickersham?
1. We go the extra mile for our clients.
We want to ensure that your case runs smoothly from the moment you pick
up the phone and call us to the conclusion of your case. For example,
we have an entire team of employees dedicated exclusively to making sure
that all of our clients’ medical bills and liens are properly processed
throughout the course of their case. Many other law firms do not have
people working behind the scenes to get the job done so thoroughly. At
Metzger Wickersham, we believe that going over and above for our clients
is one of the factors that distinguishes the difference between a good
law firm and an excellent law firm.
2. You are not just a file or case number.
When you experience a
personal injury, such as a car or
motorcycle crash, you want the best lawyer possible; but you also want someone who cares.
Our attorneys and staff will always treat you like you are a real person
with real problems. You will never be just another “file”
or a “case” to us, because we know that everyone has a unique
situation, with different challenges. At Metzger Wickersham, we strive
to provide personalized and compassionate representation to our clients,
from start to finish.
3. We have proven credentials and board certifications.
Many law firms boast that they have been chosen as
Best Lawyers in America or
US News Best Law Firms. While these accolades are nice to have, did you know that they are based
primarily on peer-review, rather than actual case results or objective
credentials? Inclusion in
Best Lawyers, for example is based entirely on peer-review. At Metzger Wickersham,
we are proud to have lawyers who have earned board-certification in certain
legal specialty areas, which cannot be achieved through simple peer evaluations
but instead require rigorous screenings of experience and credentials.
We have attorneys who are certified as specialists in the areas of workers’
compensation law and civil trial law, by the accrediting agencies approved
by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. We also have attorneys who hold membership in the
Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which is limited to trial lawyers who have won verdicts and settlements
in the amount of one million dollars or more.
4. We have trial experience.
In most circumstances, your case will never go to trial. Your case may
never even make it to the point where it becomes necessary to file a lawsuit.
We know that the thought of having to step foot in a courtroom is intimidating
to many people, and we will do what we can to get you the settlement you
want before trial. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and have successfully
settled thousands of cases without having to go to court. However, if
your case is one of the few that does end up making its way through the
entire litigation process, you can be confident that you are protected
by the very best. We have a board-certified trial attorney on staff and
a whole department dedicated to handling cases that are in litigation.
Insurance companies know that we will hold them accountable and take the
steps necessary to protect the best interests of our clients. When you
hire a law firm that is not afraid to try cases, you optimize your chances
for maximum financial compensation.
5. The insurance companies know our name.
How do we know this? Because we used to work for them. Metzger Wickersham
law firm has been in continuous operation 130 years, and over the course
of our long and rich history, we have handled a broad spectrum of legal
matters. For a period of time, our firm handled defense work, representing
insurance companies and corporations. We ultimately found it our calling
to protect the legal rights of injured folks, thus making the switch to
solely representing plaintiffs in personal injury cases. The fact that
some of our lawyers have actually worked for insurance companies gives
us a skill set that makes us unique from other law firms. We know exactly
how the insurance companies think and the tactics they use; this gives
our clients an advantage when it comes to getting the best results possible.
