Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
Let’s say you were hurt in an auto accident on the Schuylkill because someone else was driving carelessly or texting while driving. You were severely injured and are unable to return to work for weeks. With medical bills piling up, not to mention your day-to-day expenses, you are at loss. How will you pay this massive debt? How will you continue providing for your family? Who is responsible for the pain and suffering you are going through?
Your first option is to contact the insurance company and file a claim on your own. However, this could be a serious mistake. Filing a claim with the insurance company can be a complicated process, especially if you’ve never done it before. Missing even a minor detail could result in your claim being denied. Additionally, the insurance company’s adjusters will likely try to get you to admit fault or downplay your injuries in order to have grounds to deny your claim or offer a lower settlement. Without an attorney on your side, you could ultimately end up making a seemingly minor mistake that ends up costing you in a huge way.
This is the time to contact a personal injury lawyer from Fellerman & Ciarimboli Law PC. Our Philadelphia personal injury attorneys can not only help you with your insurance claim but also fight to maximize your recovery. Our goal is to help you recover the full compensation you are owed for all of your current and future damages.
The Insurance Company Is Not Your Friend
When you submit a claim to the insurance company, it is the responsibility of the insurance adjuster to keeping the payout as low as possible so the company can stay profitable. In most cases, the adjuster will offer you just enough of a settlement to avoid a lawsuit.
The adjusters will examine the following factors when deciding on a settlement offer:
- Both current and future expenses
- Any income losses
- Pain and suffering, as well as emotional damages
The adjuster will then determine how much the company is willing to pay using a specific formula. The adjuster will then make a low-ball offer, sometimes as much as 50% lower than what your claim is really worth. This allows the adjuster to negotiate during the settlement phase. Unfortunately, many people do not realize that negotiation is possible and simply accept the low settlement thinking it is the best offer they will get.
However, if your injury is severe enough, this amount will probably not cover all your expenses nor will it sufficiently pay for your pain and suffering. But you don't want to deal with the insurance company on your own. Remember, the insurance company is not your friend and will likely try to bully you into accepting a low-ball settlement. This is why you need a skilled personal injury lawyer, like those at Fellerman & Ciarimboli Law PC, by your side.

Don’t Wait; Contact Us Before the Deadline Passes
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Pennsylvania is two years. This means you only have two years from the date of the accident (or injury or death) to file your claim and seek compensation for your damages. Although this seems like a lot of time, it can go by very quickly, especially if extensive research needs to be done on your claim. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to collect evidence and get witness testimony.

I have a friend who sought help from Fellerman & Ciarimboli and said they were very nice and helpful. So when I needed assistance, they were the first ones I thought of, and gave them a call. I was connected to Attorney Molly Clark, who made a significant impact. Her comforting personality created a welcoming environment during our interactions, turning what could have been a somber experience into one filled with positivity. Our upbeat conversations, in contrast to the challenging situation, improved my well-being.
What truly won me over was Molly's commitment to keeping me informed about the progress of my situation. Whenever I called her with questions, she promptly provided answers, ensuring I had the information I needed when I needed it. Working with Fellerman & Ciarimboli was a positive experience given the circumstances I was facing. I highly recommend Attorney Molly and the firm to anyone seeking reliable and compassionate assistance during challenging times.
Molly thank you for everything you’ve done for Terry and me. You went above and beyond. You are like family to us and will always love you!- Arlene P.
I can't express how GREAT my first experience with an attorney has been! I'm not kidding when I say that both you and the entire firm are I think the best around. Once get things settled around here, I would like to make an appointment to come up to talk about some other issues, but I have been doing nothing, but singing the praises of you The entire organization to everyone that I speak with.- R.R.
There are no adequate words to convey to you, Mike, and Ed how grateful our family is for all of your hard work in helping us through the most difficult time of our lives. Your commitment to justice is unlike anything we have ever witnessed. Our tragedy became your tragedy. The three of you have become part of our family.
Harry, you explained everything necessary in terms which were comprehensible and helpful to us to better understand all that was presented. We are so grateful for that.
The compassion shown to us by not only the three of you, but everyone to whom we encountered at Fellerman & Ciarimboli was off the charts and so sincere.
We will grieve our profound loss for the rest of our lives, but all of you helped to make it a bit easier, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
God's Blessings to you and your family.
Molly, Thank you so much! I can't tell you how much you mean to me, throughout this process, you have always been there and helped me through. I am glad it all came to a good ending and that it is over. But, I will miss you and you will always be referred to anyone that ever asks me for an amazing lawyer! Keep fighting for the people who need you! You are amazing at what you do, you're professional and genuine! I wish you all the best in your career and am happy that I chose you to take my case. Your team is amazing, too!- Nicole W.
I was in a bad accident and I had my daughter in the car with me. I highly recommend this firm.
