PHILADELPHIA INJURY LAWYERS THAT PROTECT THEIR CLIENTS
Your Fight is Our Fight
Don't Face the Insurance Company Alone
Although it's a hard truth to accept, insurance companies are not looking out for you and your family. If you've been injured in a car accident, at work, or in a slip-and-fall accident, the adjusters are looking to deny your claim or give you as little money as possible. Do you have a Philadelphia lawyer who is experienced, dedicated, and ready to go to court to fight on your side and protect your best interests?
Know Your Rights
Having the right injury lawyer means you don't have to speak to the insurance company about your injury, and in all honestly, you probably shouldn't. Insurance companies are renowned for their various tactics to minimize how much money you can get.
Build Your Strongest Case
Like a well-built home, your case needs a strong foundation to be able to hold up in court. An experienced personal injury attorney will review and gather evidence to build a strong case to prove your injury's seriousness and what it has cost you.
Get the Right Representation
You may not have the experience and legal knowledge you need to deal with the insurance company or business entity and their team of lawyers. Partnering with a strong Car accident Lawyer can make all the difference in the results of your case.

Why Do You Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
To put it simply, insurance companies don't pay accident victims fairly, and sometimes they even try to deny compensation to a deserving person. No matter how nice an adjuster seems, it's their job to keep as much money in the company's pocket as possible, which means keeping it from you if they can. An experienced injury attorney will "put the glove on for you" and make sure the insurance company pays you fairly. They will also stop the harassing phone calls and letters trying to get you to accept a settlement that is less than you deserve.
Treat With the Best Doctors for Your Injury
If you are needing medical treatment for your pain and injury, it may be difficult to find qualified doctors or medical professionals who have experience with accident-related injuries, especially if you don't have health insurance. We have good relationships with providers all over Pennsylvania that help our clients get seen sooner and who understand how the personal injury process works. Many of them will be willing to treat you if you don't have health insurance if you have retained a lawyer for your case.
Get Your Medical Bills Paid
It's only fair that if someone else is responsible for your injury that you shouldn't have to pay for it. We agree and we will fight the insurance company to see to it that your medical bills are covered to the fullest extent possible. We also often work with medical providers to try to reduce the medical bills, which puts more money in your pocket at the end of the case.
Maximize Your Compensation (Settlement)
Our experienced car accident lawyers will (1) build a strong case for you, (2) handle the insurance company so they can't devalue with their commonly-used tactics, (3) collect evidence and documents, and (4) negotiate your claim to maximize the settlement value of your injury case.
We Have Your Back 100%
The #1 priority of our law team is to help you get through this process with as little stress as possible. That means getting you great treatment, helping you get your medical bills paid, guiding you through your property damage, getting you back to work, handling the insurance company, filing a lawsuit for you, litigating your case, and getting you compensation for all you've gone through.

I appreciate KaplunMarx so much and would definitely recommend them to my family and friends."

About Our Law Firm
You may have a number of questions about hiring an attorney and what to expect.
While the legal system can be complicated, getting advice about your case and talking to a lawyer should not be. Here are answers to our most frequently asked questions to help you know what to expect when you contact us.
HOW QUICKLY CAN I TALK TO An INJURY LAWYER ABOUT MY CASE?
HOW QUICKLY CAN I TALK TO AN INJURY LAWYER ABOUT MY CASE?
Generally, when you call during normal office hours, one of our lawyers will be able to chat with you right away, or on the same day regarding your situation. In the unlikely event that all of our lawyers are tied up at the time of your call, someone from our office will take down your information and our lawyers will try to get back to you on the same or next day.
DO I HAVE TO PAY YOU AFTER MY FREE CONSULTATION WITH AN ACCIDENT LAWYER?
DO I HAVE TO PAY YOU AFTER MY FREE CONSULTATION WITH A LAWYER?
No. For our personal injury cases we only charge a contingency fee. What that means is we only get paid when the case settles. So, if you sign up with us, and we win your case (or settle out of court), KaplunMarx only takes a percentage directly from the settlement, meaning you never have to personally write us a check. However, if you have a criminal case, the payment setup will be different.
CAN I MEET A LAWYER IN PERSON OR VIRTUALLY?

Our lawyers are able to meet both in person and virtually. Whichever is most convenient for you and your family.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING FOR MY APPOINTMENT WITH A CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER?
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING FOR MY APPOINTMENT WITH MY LAWYER?
Since each case is a little different, our staff can get you a list of things that will be helpful for your appointment with a Car Accident Lawyer. However, if you were in a car accident, in general, it will be helpful to bring:
- Your police report or case number
- Your auto and health insurance cards
- Pictures of your car and injuries
- Driver's license
- Medical documents and receipts

More About Philadelphia Personal Injury Claims
Personal injury cases can be incredibly stressful and overwhelming experiences for those involved. In Philadelphia, there are a variety of law firms that specialize in helping accident victims receive the compensation they deserve. At KaplunMarx, we offer personal communication with experienced attorneys, a deep understanding of the legal system, and a tradition of success in securing large verdicts and settlements.
Don't Face Insurance Companies Alone
Insurance carriers have whole teams of experts and attorneys whose job it is to reduce, mitigate or outright deny your claim. If your claim has already been denied, you will likely not be able to even re-open the discussion without a good personal injury attorney.
Keep in mind that having a KaplunMarx attorney on your side will give you these advantages among others when dealing with insurance companies:
- Our attorneys can gather evidence to support the claim and present it in a persuasive manner.
- Our attorneys can negotiate with the insurance company to ensure fair compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
- If necessary, we can take the case to trial and argue on behalf of the victim in front of a judge or jury.
Insurance Claim Denials or Lack of Cooperation
Insurance carriers will do just about everything in their power to keep you from a fair claim. They may use tactics such as:
Disputing liability: Insurance companies may argue that their policyholder was not at fault for the accident or that the victim was partially responsible. This can lead to reduced compensation or even a denial of the claim altogether.
Delaying payment: Insurance companies may drag out the claims process by requesting additional documentation or conducting multiple investigations. This can add stress and financial strain on victims who are already dealing with medical bills and lost wages. It can also give rise to opportunity for claimants to miss deadlines.
Lowball settlements: Insurance companies may offer low settlement amounts in hopes that victims will accept them without question. However, these offers often do not fully compensate individuals for their injuries and losses.
The Importance of Getting Treatment
If you become a client, we may be able to help you get medical treatment with our network of trusted providers here in Philadelphia without upfront out of pocket costs.
Seeking prompt and appropriate medical treatment is crucial when you are working on a personal injury claim, as it can establish the cause and severity of the injury and provide vital evidence to support a case. Delaying medical treatment may not only harm your health but also your legal case, as insurance adjusters may use delayed treatment as an excuse to deny a claim.
In a personal injury lawsuit, it is incumbent upon you to demonstrate that the defendant's negligence was directly responsible for your injury, resulting in incurred damages.
Nevertheless, if there was a prolonged delay before seeking medical attention following your accident, the court or jury may interpret this as an indication that your injuries were less severe than you alleged. Such an interpretation could lead to a reduction in the compensation initially slated for you.
Documented medical care is essential for personal injury claims. It can serve as vital ammunition for the case and establish a baseline amount for settlement payouts.
Long-term medical treatment costs should be covered by personal injury settlements, but delaying treatment may result in insufficient coverage for long-term care. Additionally, not seeking immediate medical attention after an accident could lead to serious lingering health effects that are difficult to treat later on.
Additionally, gaps in treatment or accusations of malingering could weaken the credibility of your claim before insurance companies or in court.
Developing Your Claim or Court Case
We put dozens, even hundreds of hours into developing cases for our clients. To build a strong case, it is crucial to thoroughly investigate and gather all relevant evidence, including medical records, witness statements, and accident reports.
This can involve working with experts such as accident reconstruction specialists or medical professionals to provide testimony regarding the severity of injuries. We may put extensive work into collecting and organizing documentation needed to prove our claims. Additionally, our attorneys may utilize legal strategies such as discovery, which allows them to request information from opposing parties that may be critical to building a successful case. In some cases we may employ private investigators or expert witnesses to help our client's cases.
As mentioned previously our attorneys also negotiate aggressively with insurance companies to reach a fair settlement outside of court. However, our attorneys won't hesitate to litigate if necessary for proper compensation for our client's injuries and losses.
Personal Injury Damages We May Speak With You About While We Develop Your Case
In personal injury cases, two types of damages are typically awarded to compensate the injured party: general damages and special damages.
General damages refer to non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, or loss of enjoyment of life.
Special damages, on the other hand, are quantifiable financial losses incurred as a direct result of the injury, such as medical expenses or lost wages.
The amount and type of damages awarded in a personal injury case depend on the specific circumstances surrounding the injury and its impact on the plaintiff's life.
General damages are a type of compensation that aims to restore the injured individual to their position before the accident and compensate them for non-economic losses such as pain and suffering, disfigurement, and loss of personal enjoyment. These damages are subjective in nature because they cannot be easily quantified or measured by objective standards.
Instead, general damages are awarded based on the severity and impact of the injury on the victim's life. Pain and suffering refer to physical discomfort, emotional distress, anxiety, depression, and other psychological effects that result from an injury. Disfigurement covers any permanent scarring or deformity caused by an accident. Loss of personal enjoyment refers to any negative effects on the victim's quality of life such as inability to participate in hobbies or activities they once enjoyed.
The amount of compensation awarded for general damages varies depending on each case's unique circumstances, including factors like age, extent of injuries sustained, duration of recovery time needed, and future limitations due to injuries incurred during the accident.
Compensation for special damages covers quantifiable costs resulting from the injury, such as medical expenses, loss of income, and projected costs of future medical treatment. These damages aim to restore injured individuals to their position before the accident and compensate them for their injuries. The amount awarded for special damages depends on the severity of the injury and its impact on the victim's life.
For instance, if a person is unable to work due to their injury, they may receive compensation for lost wages. In addition to economic losses like medical bills and lost income, special damages can also include non-economic losses such as pain and suffering, disfigurement, humiliation, or loss of personal enjoyment.
Victims will likely need to provide receipts and records showing how much they paid in medical bills or other expenses related to their injury. If we take your case, we will help you identify which expenses are compensable under special damages and ensure that they receive fair compensation for these losses.
Escalating Your Case to Trial
At KaplunMarx, we are not intimidated by taking your case to court if necessary. While this means a payout for your losses and injuries will likely take longer, it is sometimes the only way to receive the compensation that is warranted (or any at all).
Our team is more than ready and able to file a lawsuit and aggressively pursue it in court on your behalf.
In Philadelphia, civil litigation trials are primarily heard in two courts: the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas and the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
- Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas: This is a state trial court of general jurisdiction. It handles a wide range of civil cases, including personal injury, contract disputes, property disputes, and other types of civil litigation. The Court of Common Pleas is organized into several divisions, one of which is the Civil Division. The majority of civil litigation trials in Philadelphia are heard in this court.
- United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania: This is a federal trial court that hears civil cases involving federal laws or disputes between residents of different states where the amount in controversy exceeds $75,000. It also hears cases involving the U.S. government as a party, as well as certain special types of cases, like bankruptcy and maritime law cases.
If the decision of either of these courts is appealed, the case would move to an appellate court. For the Court of Common Pleas, appeals are heard by the Pennsylvania Superior Court or the Commonwealth Court, and then possibly the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. For the U.S. District Court, appeals go to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.
