Personal Injury

If you were injured in an accident due to another’s negligence, then it is critical that you hire a law firm with experience getting results, negotiating with insurance companies, and aggressively litigating cases to trial.  Whether in Philadelphia County, Allegheny County, or any county in between, is critical to make sure that you get an attorney who is ready to go to battle to ensure that you get just compensation. In only 12 years of practice, Andrew Sciolla has personally recovered over $15 million in compensation for clients.  Make sure that you are using his knowledge and skill to your advantage!   Tip the scales in your favor with the right representation.

All kinds of injuries can have a devastating impact on your life and on your loved ones  – which is why it’s critical to have someone looking out for your interests and acting as your representative as soon as possible.  Delays in getting proper medical treatment and attorney representation can have a significant effect on your opportunity to get the fair compensation that you deserve.  Sciolla Law Firm can make sure that your medical bills are being covered by the appropriate insurance, can recommend specialists near your location, and can begin investigating your claim to make sure that all evidence related to your claim is captured.

Do you need to hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

It’s a well-known fact, insurance companies are in the business of making money.  The way that they do that is by denying claims, challenging claims and getting claims reduced as low as possible.   You may not realize it, but even your own insurance company could be responsible for paying part of your claim.  Whenever you speak with an insurance company, they are recording everything that you say and they will use it against you if it helps them save money.   That’s why it is important for you to have a knowledgeable attorney dealing with all of the insurance companies on your behalf.  You may think that the insurance company has made a reasonable offer to settle your case, and you may be inclined to avoid hiring an attorney and getting involved with a lawsuit.  However, time and time again, the evidence shows that you will not get fair value for your injuries when you negotiate with an insurance company without representation.  Insurance adjusters’ job is to get you to accept a low offer by convincing you that your claim is not worth as much as you think it is.  Indeed, some individuals settle their claim with the insurance company before they even realize the full extent of their injuries.  It’s just not worth taking the chance by negotiating yourself, because ultimately you will be giving up your rights to fair compensation.  Calculating fair values for past and future medical bills, income loss, and pain and suffering damages comes with experience.  It’s the experience that Sciolla Law Firm has, and it is the experience that you should utilize to your advantage.

What if my injury was minor?

Many injuries can seem minor at first, but then they escalate or simply do not resolve.  We have the experience and knowledge to evaluate your injuries fully and can recommend physicians that specialize in your specific injuries.  Don’t just assume your injuries are minor and temporary.  Don’t just assume that you have no options because you selected “limited tort” on your auto insurance policy.  First, make sure that you get a full medical evaluation to evaluate your injuries.  Some people avoid getting treatment or simply do not continue with their treatment because they think their injuries are minor.  Then, later, the injuries get worse, and so too does the pain.  Many injuries can be difficult to recognize or diagnose at first – sometimes due to adrenaline and other times due to inflammation, which can lead to negative x-rays.  Sometimes cervical and lumbar strains and sprains may not be fully felt for 2-10 days following trauma.  For instance, an immediate ER visit following an accident may not result in any positive findings.  However, an MRI taken two weeks later may reveal a lumbar or cervical herniation.  It’s important to be honest about how you are feeling and to not ignore or underestimate your symptoms of stiffness, achiness, fogginess, headache, etc.  If you are feeling pain or discomfort, it’s crucial that you get the medical attention that you need.  After we know the full extent of your injuries, then we can evaluate our options related to litigation.  At Sciolla Law Firm, we have a history of getting fair compensation for our clients with only moderate injuries, and rest assured that we are not afraid of your “limited tort” insurance.
