Scranton Auto Accident Attorneys Fight for Your Recovery
Sound counsel in Luzerne and Lackawanna Counties for your vehicular accident case
Auto accidents are, unfortunately, extremely common. They are responsible for more than 3 million injuries a year. In recent years, drivers of cars, trucks and other automobiles have become increasingly more distracted behind the wheel, resulting in even more auto accidents. Some of those crashes leave victims seriously injured, permanently disabled, and financially devastated. At The Law Firm of Cognetti & Cimini, our Scranton auto accident lawyers thoroughly review your accident and help you pursue fair compensation for your injuries.
How our auto accident lawyers can help
While many drivers are involved in a car accident at some point in their lives, most do not know how to deal with the legal aspects of a serious accident. When someone else’s negligence causes a car crash, the incident becomes a legal matter. Gathering evidence, identifying liable parties, proving fault in the accident and holding liable parties accountable generally requires legal skill, especially in complicated cases.
How much compensation can I receive for my damages and injuries?
Estimating monetary amounts for serious injury caused by auto accidents requires a thorough assessment of medical costs, lost wages, diminished earning capacity and other damages. In cases involving catastrophic injury and permanent disability, estimating the costs of home and vehicle modifications to accommodate disabilities may also be necessary. One of our auto accident lawyers who has handled such cases for decades knows how to arrive at fair damage figures—accurate amounts that can be taken to the negotiating table with insurance companies.
Types of collision cases we handle
We understand how painful automobile, truck or motorcycle accidents can be, even beyond physical injury. You may be out of work, restricted to bed rest and worrying how you’ll be able to handle enormous medical bills and support your family. Our dedicated personal injury attorneys have years of experience helping accident victims and can help you restore balance to your life following an accident. The types of accidents we handle include:
Car accidents – By identifying the source of liability, or in some cases multiple sources of liability, our Scranton car accident lawyers help injured people seek the compensation they are entitled by law to receive. Our lawyers are skilled at assessing damages for serious injuries resulting from car accidents. We know how to negotiate settlements that cover our clients’ needs but are not afraid to proceed to trial when negotiations fail to deliver your best possible outcome.
Trucking accidents – These present far more complex cases than car accidents: Anyone who sustains an injury in a trucking accident can sue any individual, company, or entity that is at fault for causing the accident. It’s in your best interest to hire a firm like ours that is experienced in dealing with trucking companies and their insurers.
Motorcycle accidents – Motorcycles offer very little structural protection to the rider, which is why motorcycle accidents typically result in serious injury or death. Our Scranton motorcycle accident attorneys have decades of experience representing bikers and can protect your rights in an accident claim or lawsuit.
