Northeast PA personal injury attorney Jonathan Comitz of the Comitz Law Firm, LLC, provides answers to common questions regarding what to do if you’ve been in a car accident.


What am I entitled to as a victim of a car crash in Pennsylvania?

The Pennsylvania Constitution mandates that victims of car crashes are to be compensated in the form of money. As a result, you are entitled to the following compensation that is applicable to you:

  • A maximum amount of money for the pain and suffering of your physical injuries and emotional distress
  • Payment of your medical bills
  • Money for future medical care
  • Payment for your time off of work and future wage losses
  • Reimbursement for your out-of-pocket expenses incurred

How will you handle my case?

Our experienced team of lawyers, paralegals, and assistants will use investigators, accident reconstruction specialists, accountants, economists, doctors, engineers, wage-loss experts, and any other forensic experts necessary to prove how much your case is worth, how your car crash happened, and who is at fault. The goal is to obtain the highest possible recovery for you.

We guarantee that we will return your phone calls. We will be prepared for your case, no matter how seriously you are injured or how complex your crash was. We are aggressive against the opposition and will work harder than the opposing attorneys and insurance companies.

Do I really need a lawyer to negotiate with an insurance company?

Absolutely. Insurance companies significantly devalue a case when dealing with the victim directly. They will pressure you to take less than your case is worth. Do not speak with an insurance company about your injuries or the facts of the crash until you have spoken with an attorney. Our personal injury attorneys are experienced in insurance litigation related to car accident claims.

What is my case worth?

The value of your car accident case depends upon how badly you are hurt; the permanency of the injury; the long-term prognosis; the type of medical treatment received; the necessity of future medical treatment needed; your medical bills; your emotional trauma; the length of time needed to heal; and how the injuries have impacted your ability to work and earn a living.

What types of automobile crashes and accidents does Comitz Law handle?

We handle all manner of automobile crashes and accidents, including rear-end collisions, left-turn collisions, roll-through or ignored stop signs, running red lights, speeding, reckless driving, texting while driving, rollovers, unsafe lane changes, sideswipe and broadside collisions, teen driver accidents, and all other motor vehicle accidents involving personal injury.

How can I pay for an attorney if I am injured?

We will not charge any attorneys’ fees unless we win!

Will my case settle or go to Court?

You want the money you deserve today, not five years from now. Based upon our experience, reputation, and aggressiveness in the handling of each case, we will do our best to maximize your recovery. If that means a quick settlement, we will do it. However, we will not back down from the insurance companies and their minions. If necessary, we will go to trial as we have the experience and power to do that. Regardless, you will always be in control of your case and we will never settle without your authorization.

Why not a “big law firm” or a “Philly firm” over Comitz Law?

Easy. We guarantee hands-on service of your case. You will not be treated like a number. You will not get bounced around among twenty lawyers. When we are working on your case, no matter what it is worth, it is the most important in our office. Our firm is committed to you, the client – not the value of your case – and we like it that way.
