How Do I Know If I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?

personal injury lawyerWhen you get into an accident, there’s a strong possibility that you might be entitled to compensation. That money can be secured by filing an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit.

The processes involved with these types of matters tend to be time-consuming and involve complicated legal procedures. It’s always smart to enlist the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer, but this is especially true if:

  • You’ll be dealing with a stingy insurance company. They’ll almost always do anything they can to minimize or deny your injury claim.
  • You could potentially share any degree of responsibility for the accident. Other parties will try to use this to their advantage and stop you from getting the money you deserve.
  • Your injuries are quite severe. You’ll want to make sure that they’re valued properly so that you don’t accept an offer for less than your case is worth.
  • Several parties are involved. Lawsuits are complicated enough when they involve one plaintiff and one defendant. Things can get a lot messier when there are several defendants involved.

When you call Zavodnick, Zavodnick & Lasky, LLC for help, our team will work day and night to help you secure the financial compensation you need and deserve.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Cost of lawsuitWorried that you can’t afford a personal injury lawyer? That’s not the case when you call Zavodnick, Zavodnick & Lasky, LLC. Why? Our legal team works on a contingency basis. In the simplest possible terms, this means that you don’t owe us any money unless we win your case. You pay nothing until we recover a settlement offer or financial award on your behalf.

When we win, our law firm will collect a pre-agreed upon percentage of your financial recovery. This arrangement allows you to get the help you need without the burden and stress of up-front legal fees. Give our no win, no fee Philadelphia personal injury lawyers a call today to learn more about our fee structure.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?

After you get hurt, it’s important to consider your legal options and decide if you’re going to pursue compensation? That’s because there’s a limited amount of time to file an insurance claim or lawsuit.

For insurance claims, you’ll have to notify the at-fault party’s insurer and file a claim within a reasonable amount of time after your accident. Insurance companies decide what length of time is reasonable, so you’ll have to check with whatever company you’ll be dealing with. Insurers reserve the right to refuse your claim for benefits if you wait too long to ask for compensation

For lawsuits, the statute of limitations in Pennsylvania is typically two years from the date of your injury-causing accident. Specific circumstances of your case might mean that you have more or less time to act. Whatever the statute of limitations is, your claim will be barred if you don’t assert your rights in a timely manner.

That’s why contacting a personal injury lawyer after your accident is crucial. At Zavodnick, Zavodnick & Lasky, LLC, we’ll work hard to preserve your rights and ability to recover the money you need and deserve. Call us when you’re ready to start your free consultation.

How Long Does a Personal Injury Case Take?

No two personal injury cases are the same. How long your personal injury case takes ultimately depends on the decisions you make. You could realistically have a case that only lasts a few days if you decide to accept an early offer from the insurance company.

However, if you decide to fight for more money than they’re offering, chances are the case will take longer to resolve. In that case, things like investigations, determinations of fault, consultations with expert witnesses, and back-and-forth negotiations can take time. Call our Philadelphia personal injury law firm for more information.

Will I Have to Go to Court?

CourthouseCould your case go to court? Yes. However, the vast majority of personal injury lawsuits don’t.

Defendants and plaintiffs in these matters tend to settle privately before a trial is necessary.

Trials can be particularly time-consuming and expensive – and insurance companies don’t always fare well in front of a jury – so out-of-court settlements are pretty common.

Can I Still Get Money If I’m Blamed For My Accident?

Quite possibly, yes. While some states bar victims from recovering compensation if they contribute to their accident, Pennsylvania does not. Instead, Pennsylvania has modified comparative negligence rules. Simply put, you can recover compensation for your accident-related damages as long as you’re not primarily at fault. Your claim will only be barred if you share more than 50 percent of the blame.

While sharing fault won’t necessarily stop you from recovering money, it will affect how much you can ultimately get. Your financial award will be adjusted downward to compensate for your contributions to the accident. For example, sharing 30 percent of the blame will mean that your damages will be reduced by 30 percent.

Always seek the assistance of a personal injury lawyer after an accident, especially if you might be blamed by other parties. Zavodnick, Zavodnick & Lasky, LLC will work to minimize your role. We know that the less fault allocated to you, the greater your financial recovery can be.

Philadelphia, PA Accident Statistics

Philadelphia is the sixth-largest city in the United States, home to more than 1.5 million people. Hundreds of thousands more pour into the city every day to work, go to school, and simply enjoy all that it has to offer. Not surprisingly, that means that I-95, I-76, Broad Street, Route 1, and hundreds of other roads in Philadelphia are always congested. Traffic on bridges leading in and out of New Jersey always seems to be at a stand-still.

As a result, traffic accidents are pretty common in and around the City of Brotherly Love. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PENNDOT), there were 11,003 traffic accidents in Philadelphia County in 2018. That accounted for more than 8 percent of all of the accidents across the entire state.

So, on an average day in Philadelphia County, there are more than 30 car accidents. That’s more than one crash an hour. If you’ve been hurt in an accident, call our personal injury attorneys today for a free consultation.

How Serious Are Accidents in Philadelphia?

So, there are a lot of car accidents in Philly on a daily basis. Are they mostly fender benders or serious crashes? In 2018, of the 11,003 reported accidents:

  • 3,304 resulted in property damage only
  • 7,599 caused an injury, and
  • 100 were fatal.

That means that nearly 70 percent of all traffic accidents in Philadelphia County result in an unintentional injury or death.

Thousands Hospitalized With Injuries in Philadelphia Every Year

Motor vehicle accidents aren’t the only reason people get hurt in Philadelphia. Every year, thousands of people make trips to the emergency room for a variety of reasons. In 2018, 19,299 people in Philadelphia County had injuries treated at area hospitals.

The vast majority of those injuries were unintentional. Leading causes of those injuries – outside of accidents involving vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians – included falls, poisoning, and burns.

Workplace Accidents Fairly Common in Philadelphia

Philadelphia has its fair share of dangerous jobs. Whether old buildings or historical monuments are being renovated or a new highrise is being built in Center City, it seems like there’s always something under construction. Since the city sits on the water, many people are employed at the local Navy Yard and surrounding shipping ports. There are tons of warehouses, energy plants, hospitals, and other dangerous places to work, as well.

Unfortunately, Philadelphia ranks among the most dangerous cities for construction workers and other laborers. In 2017, there were 45 reported workplace-related fatalities. Only 9 other metropolitan areas reported more fatal workplace accidents.
