Pennsylvania laws regarding car accidents and auto insurance can be complicated and confusing. You need Fisher & Fisher’s team of experienced legal professionals to assist you.
A car accident often raises much more involved issues than merely who failed to yield, or who might have been speeding. Was there faulty equipment or even poor road design that caused your accident? Was the other driver intoxicated or otherwise driving impaired? Be assured we will pursue every avenue possible on your behalf.
You should be aware your call to any insurance company is recorded and is considered a legal statement, so the first call you should make to fully protect your rights is to Fisher & Fisher Law Offices for a free consultation.
