In 2018,  the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported more than 36,500 motor vehicle fatalities and millions more are injured annually as a result of automobile accidents. It is statistically more likely than not that you will be involved in a car accident at least once in your lifetime. While car wrecks have many causes and underlying factors, the most common include:

  • Distracted Driving
  • Drowsy Driving
  • Drunk Driving
  • Speeding and Aggressive Driving
  • Poor Weather Conditions such as ice or fog

When car accidents happen, injuries can be catastrophic – even life changing. However, even seemingly minor injuries can disrupt an injured victim’s life and change their world as they know it. In addition to the physical pain and emotional distress usually associated with a car wreck, you may also face unexpected costs or be unable to work. As the injured victim, you may be able to take legal action in order to get reimbursed for these damages, but navigating the legal process and dealing with insurance companies can be intimidating and seemingly impossible. If this is the case for you, then seeking a team of experienced auto accident lawyers can help. On average, accident victims who have an experienced car wreck lawyer on their side receive more than three times the compensation than those who do it alone.

The insurance companies profit by paying out as little as possible to automobile policyholders and car accident victims.  You should never accept an offer from the insurance company without first consulting with a top-rated car crash lawyer who will protect your legal rights and seeks to recover the maximum you are entitled to. As your representative, an auto accident attorney at The Slocum Firm can guide you through the legal process and ensure that you get every penny you deserve.

Personal Injury Client Testimonials

We pride ourselves on ensuring that each client receives the best possible care. Below are some testimonials from real people who trusted The Slocum Firm with their personal injury cases:

Hands down the best lawyer and the best law firm in Scranton. I asked around and ended up consulting the Slocum Firm after some other practices told me there was nothing they could do for me. I’m glad I went to them! Not only did Matt understand that I was right, he knew exactly what to do to get it resolved super speedy (I thought it might drag on forever) in my favor!

“The Slocum Law Firm treated me and my situation with grace and dignity. Matt, Arianne, and Michael all made me feel welcome, understood and supported from day one. I have only to say that I would highly recommend this dynamic team with 100% confidence that they will do everything in their power to help you.

“The Slocum Firm has provided me with accurate information with outstanding professionalism. I received top notch service with impeccable response time. I felt my best interests were upheld at all times and I would highly recommend The Slocum Firm.

“I’ve had the opportunity to work alongside Attorney Slocum on several cases and I have seen firsthand his passion for helping his clients. He cares not only about the outcome of their case, but also for them on a personal level. If Attorney Slocum is your attorney, you are in good hands.

How is Fault Determined in a Car Accident?

Fault is a complex legal concept, and one of the first rules of pursuing a claim for compensation is that you should never assume you were at fault in an accident. Making matters even more complicated, under Pennsylvania’s unique auto insurance laws, you may have already predetermined your rights to a certain extent when you purchased your auto insurance policy.

What Do I Need to Know About Dealing with Insurance Adjusters?

Insurance adjusters get paid by the insurance companies to settle accident victims’ claims for as little as possible. They are not on your side, and they will try to gain your trust in order to solicit information that they can later use against you. As a result, you need to be very careful when dealing with the insurance adjuster assigned to your claim, and the best thing you can do is let your attorney communicate with the adjuster on your behalf.

When Should You Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

You’ve been injured in an accident – should you hire an attorney? Is it too early? Never. Is it too late? Most likely not. From dealing with the insurance adjusters to conducting an investigation and preparing all of the documents involved in pursuing a successful claim, there is a lot for your attorney and his or her support staff to handle.

What Can I Expect If My Claim Goes to Trial?

The vast majority of personal injury claims settle. But, occasionally, a case will go to trial. At The Slocum Firm, we work hard to secure quick and favorable settlements, but we also approach each case with an eye toward the possibility that we will eventually need to fight for our client’s rights in court. Participating in a jury trial is a unique experience, and it is important to set your expectations for the process. Learn more in: What to Expect When My Claim Goes to Trial.
