rolled over car on the side of the highway after a crashDo you know who you can turn to for representation after being in a car accident? If you don’t, then you should get to know our team at Fellerman & Ciarimboli Law PC. Our car accident lawyers in Scranton are here to make your life much easier after a car accident leaves you injured and in need of compensation that an insurance company does not want to offer up.

The bottom line is that the insurance companies of negligent, distracted, drunk, and reckless drivers should pay full damages to the people who are hurt by those drivers. Yet we have all heard stories of insurance companies fighting at every step in a car accident claim to avoid providing a fair amount to the claimant. No matter how steep your medical bills, how extensive your lost wages, or how significant your pain and suffering, you should expect the responding insurance company to downplay the severity of your case.

This is where retaining the services of our Scranton car accident lawyers becomes so important. We have more than 20 years of legal experience handling cases much like yours. When an insurance company or defendant makes a move, you can bet we have already anticipated it and know what to do next.

What Are the Main Causes of Car Accidents?

Negligence is a major factor in a car accident claim filed in Scranton. The better you can prove that the other driver’s negligence caused your crash, the stronger your claim will be. Ideally, we will be able to use convincing evidence that the other driver’s unacceptable driving behaviors were the sole cause of your crash and, therefore, they should be liable for the entirety of your damages.

What dangerous driving behaviors contribute to countless car accidents each year?

  • Texting while driving
  • Intoxication
  • Exhaustion
  • Speeding
  • Running red lights and stop signs
  • Weaving in and out of lanes
  • Turning left against oncoming traffic
  • Road rage

We can examine any evidence you might have been able to collect after your crash to see if it proves the other driver’s unacceptable driving behaviors. Depending on what we find, we might also be able to coordinate with various experts like crash reconstructionists to get further evidence of liability in your favor.

Insurance Company Got You Down?

Car insurance providers cross their fingers that you will try to file and manage your car accident claim on your own. They know that you are most likely not familiar with liability laws and the fine print in car insurance policies. No matter how friendly a car insurance representative sounds and acts, you must remember that they are not your friend. Instead, they want you to lose your claim to save their profit margin.

What Should You Not Say to an Insurance Adjuster?

Watch out if an insurance company that represents the other driver reaches out to you and tries to get a recorded statement. You do not owe them anything, not even a hello. If you do answer the phone when they call, do not give them any information about your crash. Tell them to call our law firm the next time they want to talk to someone about what happened.

You should especially avoid mentioning anything about:

  • Who was at fault
  • Your injuries
  • Accepting a settlement

With us as your legal representatives, we can intercept all communications with insurance companies and act on your behalf. We know what to say to move your case along without inadvertently putting liability for the crash on your shoulders. Did you know that simply saying “I’m sorry” to an insurance agent can be misconstrued as an admission of guilt, upping your liability?

What Are the Most Common Injuries from Car Accidents?

Injuries sustained in car accidents can range from minor to severe and can have either short-term or long-lasting affects on the injury victim's life. Some of the most common car accident injuries include:

Minor Injuries -

  • Whiplash
  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Bruises
  • Soft tissue injuries (sprains/strains)

Severe Injuries -

    “I highly recommend Attorney Molly & the firm to anyone seeking reliable & compassionate assistance during challenging times.”

    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.
