Being injured in an automobile, truck, bus or motorcycle accident can be a devastating event, and a victim’s injuries can be very serious, including head trauma, lacerations, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, disfigurement, loss of limbs, or death.
At times, accident victims will require extensive hospitalization or rehabilitation, as well as highly specialized trauma-related care. At other times, the injuries may be less severe, including strains and sprains, but we also recognize that these injuries can dramatically change the lives of our clients and their families.
Who will pay my medical bills?
Accident victims often wonder, whether they will be paid for their wage losses, and how they will be compensated for the pain and suffering they have experienced because of the other driver’s negligence. Under the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law, people injured in a vehicle accident are generally entitled to compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, property damages, and their pain and suffering.
At Pogust Millrood, protecting our clients is our primary goal. We recognize that automobile, truck, bus and motorcycle accidents can result in serious injuries or death. We also understand the need to investigate every accident promptly and thoroughly in order to determine who was responsible for the accident, and whether our client’s injuries were worsened because of any vehicle or highway design defects. That is why we employ a team of attorneys and investigators who examine every aspect of the accident so our clients are certain that every responsible party will be accountable for their injuries.
Our efforts continue beyond the initial investigation. We stay in touch with our clients so that we know what is happening with their medical care, and can coordinate our efforts with our clients, their doctors, their therapists, and everyone else involved in their recovery. We also examine other insurance issues, including whether the responsible parties purchased sufficient insurance to compensate our clients. When the defendant has not obtained insurance, or has purchased inadequate coverage, we pursue uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist claims, and we will pursue the defendant’s assets when appropriate. We also recognize that not every case settles, and will create a trial plan so that if the case goes to court, our clients will be comfortable knowing that the judge and jury will understand how their lives were changed as a result of the accident.
