A Guide For Car Accident Injury Lawsuits

If you have been injured by a negligent or dangerous driver, you probably have some questions about being compensated. What steps do you need to take? How much time will the process take?

Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford has been helping Pennsylvania residents handle their car accident injury cases for more than 60 years. If you have been hurt in an accident, our attorneys will guide you through the entire personal injury claims process, helping you get the maximum possible amount of money for your injuries.

Step 1: Seek Medical Attention

Victims often resist going to the hospital, even for potentially serious injuries. After an accident, it is important that you see a doctor. In addition to protecting your health and well-being, this provides important documentation and helps prove to the insurance company that your injuries were serious.

Step 2: Contact A Lawyer

The personal injury process is complex, and insurance companies often try to take advantage of people who do not have skilled representation. The attorneys at Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg and Gifford will help you protect your rights. Our skilled legal staff will guide you through the entire process, helping you take the steps necessary to pursue the maximum possible recover.

Step 3: Investigation

We will thoroughly investigate your claim by locating witnesses, photographing the cars and crash site, and obtaining your medical records. We will include you in the process; when we have a clear picture of the extent of your injuries and the challenges you will face in the future, we will file a lawsuit or try to settle your case.

Step 4: Negotiations

Once we have a firm understanding of the crash and the injuries associated with it, we will attempt to negotiate for a favorable settlement. Many personal injury cases are resolved this way; often, a skilled attorney can push for a much better settlement than a victim working alone.

Step 5: Trial

If we are unable to reach an acceptable settlement, we will resolve the issue at trial. The trial process can be lengthy, but it provides victims a chance to prove their case and to recover fair compensation for the suffering they have endured.
