Chester County Car Accident Lawyers
Lawsuits arising from motor vehicle accidents are based on the law of negligence. Anyone who carelessly operates his or her motor vehicle and causes injury to another person is responsible for all property damage and physical injuries to that person or persons which arise from the car accident.
Insurance Companies play a major part in these auto accident negligence cases. Involvement often commences between two or three insurance companies, and the overall situation can become complicated very quickly. The car insurance companies have one main thing in common. They don’t want to pay a penny for anything they don’t have to. To successfully navigate through the entire process, a call to an experienced car accident lawyer is the first thing to do. Your car accident attorney will diligently investigate and compile all pertinent related information, and will provide reassurance and peace of mind to you. Your car crash in and of itself was a traumatic and often unavoidable experience. The aftermath, however, is a situation you can take control of when you put the legal case in the hands of high caliber, caring vehicle accident and personal injury lawyers. Karp and Hart are the team you need on your side.
With your experienced West Chester, Pennsylvania team in place, first, we will have to deal with your own auto insurance company for payment of your medical bills, car crash repairs and immediate car rental. In addition, we might have to interact with your own company for uninsured or underinsurance coverage if the offending driver does not have enough insurance coverage to pay for your injuries and other damages.
Second, we will have to confront the negligent driver’s insurance company to persuade them to pay for your losses – when in reality, the last thing they want to do is pay you for anything.
Third, we then have to negotiate with your health insurance company for any excess medical bills you incur and there is a stipulation that they will almost always demand that you pay them back if you make a recovery from the tortfeasor (bad guy). But, not surprisingly, they will never offer to return your premium payments!
The Chester County Car Accident Attorneys Who Care – Peter Hart & Stephen Karp
Personal injury cases involving a car crash usually progress through several stages. In a personal injury case handled by car accident lawyers Peter Hart or Stephen Karp, we begin by gathering all your medical records; meeting with your doctors where necessary, conducting an accident investigation and attempting to negotiate a fair settlement with the car insurance company. If the motor vehicle accident case is not settled, Steve and Peter often try to mediate the case with a trained attorney mediator or seek a binding arbitration. This method of resolving the case is by using a private lawyer or lawyers to sit as judges. If all this fails, Peter Hart or Steve Karp will try the car accident case before a jury. All motor vehicle accidents including car crashes, acceleration accidents, cell phone and texting crashes, motorcycle accidents, truck crashes, school bus accidents and even bicycle accidents are handled this way.
Anyone who has been injured in an automobile accident is entitled to be compensated for both economic and non-economic losses. You are legally entitled to be covered for economic losses that include compensation for medical bills, wage loss, and other out of pocket expenses. Deducted from these amounts are any medical bills or wage loss payments paid or payable by the victim’s insurance company. Non-economic damages include a person’s actual physical pain and suffering, loss of the pleasures of life, disfigurement, mental anguish, emotional distress and loss of the companionship of a spouse.
