Why You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer

Getting the Compensation You and Your Family Need After a Serious Injury

After the trauma of a serious injury, most victims and families, overwhelmed by their loss, would rather have an insurer handle their claim promptly and fairly as opposed to filing a lawsuit. Too often, however, after cooperating with claims adjustors, our clients find that their claim is being denied or their bills are not being paid in full. And that is just the beginning. Stonewalling, delays, and needless red tape and paperwork are often close behind.

One of the benefits of working with skilled and experienced personal injury attorneys after a serious accident is the reassurance of knowing your claim is being handled properly. The highly trained staff at Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger has handled thousands of serious injury claims, including auto accident claims, medical malpractice and defective products.

  • We file your claim with the insurer. We gather and prepare all the required information and follow through with all the details. We do not let your claim get lost in processing.
  • We gather the medical information needed to prove your injuries and the affect those injuries will have on your life. If you need to see a medical specialist to get an accurate diagnosis, we can refer you to experts in a variety of medical fields.
  • We gather information to document your financial losses — lost wages, damages to your vehicle, the costs associated with needed medical equipment or adaptations to your home.

Is the Insurance Company Denying Your Claim?

Insurance companies would rather pay stock dividends to their stockholders than pay claims. It is in their financial self interest to deny personal injury claims and to reduce or delay financial payouts whenever possible.

Having a lawyer on your side can make a significant difference in how your claim is handled. If an insurance company refuses to accept responsibility, or says you are at fault, we gather and submit the necessary evidence to set the record straight. If the insurance company makes a low-ball settlement offer, we bring the facts to the table about the true cost of your injuries and losses.

All insurance companies have lawyers on their side; you should too. Our goal is to make sure you receive full and fair compensation. We work for you, not insurance company shareholders.
