Why Select Lepley, Engelman & Yaw, LLC As Your Counsel In A Personal Injury Case?
Your Personal Injury Attorneys
Personal Injury is any serious injury or death caused by automobile, motorcycle, or truck accidents; injury or death resulting from slipping and falling; or injury or death sustained while in the care of a medical professional. A specialized area of Personal Injury law is Workers' Compensation which covers injuries sustained while on the job. Regardless of how you were injured, you need an experienced lawyer who can help you through the legal process and deal with insurance companies on your behalf to ensure you receive the just compensation you deserve.
To recover for personal injuries, the injured party must establish liability and damages. If you are injured, you may be entitled to damages which are intended to "make the injured party whole again" and include medical expenses; pain, suffering and mental anguish; past and future wage loss; and loss of earning potential.
Insurance adjustors want quick settlements often done to the detriment of the injured. A quick settlement is done without the consideration of latent or hidden injuries that may not surface for weeks or months following an accident, without consideration to the healing process and whether there are permanent complications and long term pain and suffering.
We can assist you in determining if you are entitled to wage loss payments during the settlement process, who is responsible to pay the medical bills, etc. We can also help keep creditors away until the matter is settled. Personal injury claims are very complicated and it is essential to have an attorney to make sure you are not short changed.
For the past 20 years, my practice primarily has been devoted to representing employees in workers' compensation matters. Our firm can provide you with the representation you need to file a claim against your employer and its insurance company for lost wages, unpaid medical bills, facial or neck scarring, and death benefits for your spouse or children. We can also help defend you if your employer or its insurance company attempts to terminate or reduce your benefits. If you believe a lump sum settlement of your claim may be in your best interest, we can help to negotiate a settlement on your behalf which assures that you are receiving fair and just compensation for your work-related injury. Before you settle your claim, see us for a free consultation to help determine the extent of the compensation you deserve.
Almost 10 years before joining Lepley, Engelman & Yaw, my practice was 100% in the personal injury field I worked for insurance companies defending personal injury lawsuits brought against their insureds. I have now brought the unique perspective of having worked on the other side of personal injury cases to this firm.
I believe that the unique insights and information I have gained from working with insurance companies and their claims representatives will prove to be an invaluable resource when it comes to handling your personal injury matter.
Having worked with insurance companies, I know how they think and how they value cases. I have also learned what information causes an insurance company to increase the offer they make on a particular case as well as what information causes them to decrease their evaluation in a particular case. I believe the unique perspective that I can bring to your matter will enable me to achieve a desirable result in your case in a timely and cost efficient matter.
