Washington County Settlements Attorneys
If an auto accident or an accident at work has caused you to suffer a serious injury, obtaining fair compensation for your injuries is likely one of your top priorities. Your first step to achieving this is to hire a reputable law firm. Yablonski, Costello & Leckie PC has provided injury victims throughout Western Pennsylvania with knowledgeable and skilled legal aid since 1961. With 140 years of combined experience, our lawyers can give you trustworthy legal advice to help you understand your rights and options.
Each case is unique, and must be carefully evaluated on its own merits in order to determine the best course of action. Our settlements lawyers in Washington County will thoroughly review the evidence and the extent of your injuries as well as your personal circumstances to determine the best course of action. In some cases, a settlement is the best option because it can provide you the opportunity to control your own destiny, giving you a guaranteed lump sum of money rather than gambling on the outcome of litigation. A lump sum settlement may allow you to avoid the anxiety of being monitored by the insurance company and provide you with the funds to move on with your life on your terms as you adjust to the changes in your life resulting from your injury. Lump sum settlements have allowed our clients to: fulfill a dream of owning their own business, pay for retraining to start a new career, pay off or purchase a home, or even simply support the injured person until pension entitlement arrives or they feel capable of returning to the workforce.
Timing is everything
You need an experienced attorney to help you determine when the time is right for you to settle your case. Do not trust the insurance company to make you a fair settlement offer, and be cautious of offers for a quick settlement. Achieving the best settlement requires careful consideration of all of the facts. Failure to proceed cautiously can have a very negative impact on your future — leaving you without necessary medical coverage or sufficient means to provide for yourself.
Our experienced Washington County attorneys will discuss with you the numerous factors that must be considered when deciding to settle your case so that you can achieve the best possible settlement. We will also review the possible ramifications settling your case may have on other benefits you may be receiving, or entitled to receive, such as pensions, Social Security disability benefits and Medicaid. If it is determined that settlement is in your best interest, our attorneys will work to negotiate a settlement designed to meet your specific needs and desires.
While settlements can be beneficial in many cases, there are circumstances when a settlement is not the best option. Our skilled attorneys will discuss the possibility of settlement with you, and will negotiate a settlement if it is determined that a settlement is in your best interest, but we are not afraid to litigate a case. Settling your case prematurely can significantly decrease the value of your case. In some cases, our attorneys may recommend proceeding further with litigation to achieve a greater settlement at a future date.
