How a Bucks County Auto Accident Attorney Can Help
A qualified and knowledgeable auto accident attorney can help you in many different ways following a car accident. It is important that your lawyer communicates with insurance companies on your behalf, because more often than not insurance companies will try to settle with a victim, giving them much less compensation than they deserve. At Kats, Jamison & Associates, our dedicated lawyers are trained to negotiate for the maximum settlement possible using the full extent of the law.
If the driver who caused and is responsible for the accident does not have proper insurance, our personal injury lawyers understand the best way to handle uninsured or underinsured claims. In some cases, drivers will have limited tort insurance, thus decreasing the amount of liability an insurance company has when processing a claim. In these situations, sometimes it is necessary to bring a claim against your own insurance company to supplement the monetary losses that were not covered by the liable party.
In the case that you are still unable to recover your losses via insurance claims, a lawyer can file a personal injury claim on your behalf.
Common Stages Of Personal Injury Cases
– Filing pleadings
– Discovery (Fact finding)
– Pretrial motions/hearings
– Settlement negotiations
Our experienced lawyers will use all of the resources we have developed over the last 33 years to fully investigate the specific details regarding your case. In some situations we bring in highly qualified experts who will reconstruct your accident to illustrate exactly what happened that day. We then use all of this information to uncover who is at fault with your accident. The more clearly we can define that the more leverage you will have as during settlement negotiations with the liable party.
If necessary, we are not opposed to sending your case to trail. This typically occurs when settlement negotiations do not favor the victim of a personal injury accident. Our firm has appeared in front of the jury numerous times over the last 33 years in order to make sure that victims and their families receive a fair trail and a fair settlement based on the circumstance revolving around your case.

Do I have to pay to speak with an attorney?

What should I do immediately after I’ve been involved in a car accident?
Call the police and make sure an ambulance is sent as soon as possible. Make sure everyone involved in the accident is conscious and responsive. Stay at the scene even if the accident isn’t serious, the police should be called regardless and a police report should be filed. It is important when speaking to the police that you stick to the facts, do not speculate, and most importantly do not admit any fault. Make sure you take as many pictures as you can with your cell phone. Also, we suggest taking a picture of the other person’s license plate, their drivers license, and insurance information. The pictures should document any damage that is caused by both vehicles. Seek medical attention as soon as possible if injured, even if you do not feel any pain, you may be in a state of shock and could experience medical issues later on.
What should I do before leaving the scene of an accident?
After a car accident, it is important to collect as much information as possible. Document the names, addresses, license plates of any other vehicle involved in the accident. Either document the weather conditions at the time of the accident or take pictures of the scene surrounding the accident. If you believe that road maintenance or lack thereof was a factor in the accident – it is important to document this as well. After your immediate medical injuries have been taken into account, it is then time to speak with a lawyer immediately. The sooner you contact a lawyer, the more time you will have to successfully prepare a personal injury case. The team at Kats, Jamison & Associates will analyze your car/motorcycle accident and determine whether or not you have a claim. Through this process we will make sure to protect your rights and guard you from predatory insurance company practices.
How do I know if I have a personal injury case regarding a car accident?
If you are experiencing pain, injury, or financial damages as a result of someone else’s negligence. You may have a personal injury case. If the other driver was at fault or failed to follow the legal rules of the road – our car accident attorneys may be able to prove that the other party is liable for those damages. For example, if you were rear-ended in a car accident, typically the other driver is responsible for that accident and the insurance company could be liable for any damages
What should I expect the first few days following a car accident?
Within the first few days, you will receive communications from both your insurance company and the other driver’s insurance company. You may be contacted by your health insurance company, doctors, and even attorneys. The other driver’s insurance company may request that you sign medical authorizations so they can retrieve your medical records. Before you speak to any of these people or sign any documents, it is important that you seek legal counsel.
How do I pay for medical expenses while my case is pending?
You may have a difficult time paying for your medical expenses, even if you have health insurance. Make sure to bill any treatment as you normally would through your healthcare provider. Additionally, you may have medical payment coverage under your car insurance plan. This could be used to cover your co-pays and other medical expenses that your health insurance company may not cover initially.
What type of compensation should I expect to receive for my car accident case?
This is a difficult question to answer because it depends on many factors. If we are successful in proving that the other party is liable for your injuries and damages, you could be compensated for medical bills and any other hospital costs, lost wages, costs of rehabilitation and physical therapy, disability or disfigurement, pain and suffering, wrongful death, including loss of financial support and any other out of pocket expense that was related to your accident.
How long will it take to complete my case?
Depending on the severity of your injuries and the length of time you need to heal from your injuries will determine the length of your claim. We also have to factor in the willingness of the other party to settle as they make their initial offer. If unreasonable offers are made, your claim may proceed to trial, which will increase the length of your claim.
What are the fees for representing me in a car accident case?
At Kats, Jamison & Associates all personal injury accident cases are handled on a contingency-fee-basis. This means that we will never charge you upfront for any cost and we will advance all costs and expenses. You will not have to reimburse our Firm for any costs unless we are successful.
