“I got into a serious accident with a tractor trailer two years ago, one that took me out of commission for months. The trucking company was fighting my case, saying I was the one who caused the accident. Luckily, I had Dan Munley at my side. He got me the money to help pay the medical bills and much more. He really pulled through for me and my family and I am eternally grateful to him.” – Personal Injury Client

Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQs): Motorcycle Accident Claims in Hazleton, PA
Q: What should I do if I have been injured in a Hazleton motorcycle accident?
If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, your top priority should be obtaining medical treatment. Your personal injury protection (PIP) insurance should cover your initial medical bills, and our attorneys can help you deal with payment issues if necessary. In addition to seeing a doctor, if possible, it will also be helpful for you to:
- Request a copy of the police report
- Take photos of your property damage and injuries
- Keep a log of your doctor’s visits, symptoms, and daily pain levels
- Keep track of the days you miss from work
Q: The insurance adjusters keep calling. Is it okay for me to speak to them?
Your best option is to let our attorneys deal with the insurance companies for you. Insurance adjusters use a number of tactics to try to minimize accident victims’ compensation, If you say something you shouldn’t, you may end up having your own words used against you. Also, if you settle too soon, you could waive your right to seek additional financial compensation. You are not obligated to speak with the other party’s insurance, or to sign anything they send you.
Q: What losses am I entitled to recover?
If you have been seriously injured in a Hazleton motorcycle accident, you are entitled to recover all of the losses you sustain as a result of the accident. In addition to the repair or replacement cost for your motorcycle, this also includes:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Current and future loss of income
- Prescription costs and other out-of-pocket expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional anguish
- Loss of society, support, companionship, and consortium
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Q: Does your firm handle motorcycle accident cases on contingency?
Yes. We handle all motorcycle accident cases on a contingency-fee basis. We advance the costs of pursuing your claim (such as court costs and expert witness fees), and we do not recover these costs unless we secure just compensation on your behalf. In addition, we calculate our legal fees as a percentage of your award, and we will let you know exactly how much you will take home before you accept a settlement or decide to take your case to trial.
