With the advancement of technology, drivers are inundated with distractions, which often lead to devastating, if not fatal, pedestrian or bicycle injuries. Being a pedestrian, there’s always a chance for you to get into it with the lack of protection.
At our Pennsylvania firm, Gitman P.C., we are committed to reducing your burden by taking on your pedestrian or bike injury claim while you focus on healing.
As a former accident investigator and photographer, founding attorney Eugene Gitman has more than a decade of experience documenting and investigating even the minutest details surrounding motor vehicle accidents, including those that involve pedestrians or bicycles. As qualified pedestrian accident lawyers, we draw on that experience with our investigation to get the best possible results for our clients who have sustained a personal injury as a result of a pedestrian accident.
If your accident was a hit-and-run, you could be entitled to recovery under the Pennsylvania Assigned Claims Plan.
A detailed bicycle accident attorney is necessary in the pursuit of the best possible outcome. By choosing a thorough lawyer, you are working to ensure that every aspect of your accident is being explored, increasing your chances for the best possible recovery.
How an Injury Lawyer Can Get You Back on Track
Personal injury can happen in the blink of an eye, and the results can be devastating. You may not be able to work, and the medical bills can quickly pile up beyond your ability to pay. If you have found yourself a victim of personal injury, the Law Offices of Eugene Gitman have the experience that counts, and we can provide you with a personal injury attorney who will make your case a priority.
Dealing With Insurance Companies
Insurance companies are businesses, and they do what they can to maximize their profits. When you face the courts, they will have legal representation to ensure they pay out as little as possible. Unless you have extensive legal knowledge, they might take advantage of your inability to best negotiate your case. Our staff has the know-how, and we come to court prepared to get you the compensation you deserve.
During this time, you should be focusing on your recovery, not the bills that were a result of the accident. Your attorney can offer the help you need. They can assist you in handling your bills and making sure payments are made on time. This can protect your credit as it best ensures nothing gets sent to collection agencies.
Handling Communication Stress
During the days, weeks, and even months following your accident, the insurance companies will need to communicate with you often. This can become stressful, especially considering you are trying to recover. Once you hire legal counsel, they are no longer allowed to contact you. Instead, your attorney will speak to them on your behalf, saving you the stress and hassle of this type of communication.
Fair Compensation Through Negotiation
It requires experience to understand the value of a claim, and it takes the skill of a professional in personal injury law to ensure you are properly compensated. It is your attorney’s job to represent you, and they make it their goal to ensure the insurance companies are fair during the course of your proceedings.
Cost of the Claim
Filing a claim is not free. You must pay to obtain medical records and have an expert evaluate the accident, as well as cover filing fees, court reporter fees, and service fees. This can become expensive, and you may not have the money to cover this prior to receiving compensation. We will advance these for you, allowing you to move forward with your case.
