A person with shoulder-length brown hair, dressed in a gray blazer and white shirt, sits at a desk with papers, a laptop, and a smartphone. They are looking at the camera while holding a pen, appearing focused and engaged. A small plant and shelf are in the background.

When a person is injured in any type of accident, they often suffer injuries that can put them out of work and in the hospital for days, weeks, or even months at a time.

Unfortunately, this statement is very true and many people that suffer from injuries find it difficult to make time to recover. In this economy, many people would go to extreme lengths to keep their job, even if it means holding back pain from an injury.

Luckily, having a York personal injury attorney on your side after you have been injured in an accident can prove to be the most beneficial decision you make.

After a person suffers injuries, their insurance company will cover the damages as stated in their coverage. In most cases, this will not be nearly enough to cover the full extent of the damage, especially if some unknown loophole allows your insurance provide to skip out on paying out anything (i.e. saying that this specific type of accident is not covered).

Your personal injury lawyer, however, will stand at your side, or bedside, and meticulously review your case. No stone will be left unturned in your attorney’s fight to secure a settlement for your injuries.

In Pennsylvania, personal injury law is tricky, and without an attorney, you may not see any of the money you are entitled to. The other party’s insurance company may try to convince you that you were actually at fault for the accident or that you should not get the amount of money that you are claiming. With their experience in lowballing settlements and tricking victims into thinking that they are getting the better end of the deal, they just may fool you too. It will be up to your personal injury lawyer to ensure that this does not happen.

From helping you secure a settlement to ensuring that your rights are not breached by the opposing party’s insurance company, your personal injury attorney will be of the utmost help for your case.
