KaplunMarx - Allentown's Favorite Personal Injury Firm
Our testimonials and rave reviews speak for themselves. Clients love the way we treat them and handle their cases simply because we actually care.
We are not a high volume firm - we concentrate instead on getting maximum compensation for each of our clients. That means we don't take every single case that comes our way. But when you need to win, and we think your case is a good fit, you can bet that KaplunMarx will take care of you like no other Allentown injury law firm.
Why You Should Talk To Us First
✓ 98% Success Rate - Attorneys with a track record that shows they personally care about every case and go the extra mile every time.
✓ No upfront costs - we front all of the legal fees and get paid on performance. In fact, we don't get paid unless you win
✓ We are local and we KNOW Pennsylvania's system - Just because a firm gets a license to practice law here and buy up a bunch of bill boards around town doesn't mean that they have real experience fighting cases in PA's legal system every day. We are a locally based firm with attorneys that focus on Pennsylvania injury cases. We eat, drink and breath this every day.
✓ We are not intimidated by litigation- We do not allow insurance carriers to strong arm, intimidate or stagnate claims. We will not hesitate to take them to court to fight for you when needed.
✓ No shortcuts - we go the extra mile to make sure that you get the highest compensation possible rather than settling right away as many injury firms do.
✓ We focus on you, not on getting the most cases in town like the guys on the billboards.
✓ Proprietary methods of case management for your very best client experience and ensure greater odds of success compared to high volume, low-touch firms.
✓ Talk directly to your attorney instead of getting passed off on case managers (if you've ever been through a car accident case, you'll know how valuable this is).
✓ We're consistently rated 5 stars by clients and have over 450 5-star reviews for a reason.
✓ No cost consultations we'll help you find out if you have a case. If you don't, we'll help point you in the right direction. Win-win.
✓ We get results without compromising service - It's not easy to find a firm that provides our brand of one-on-one service but which has the resources to get results that smaller practices may not be able to.
If you have been subjected to harm due to another party's negligent actions, the law empowers you to seek accountability and compensation from the party responsible. Our Allentown team of personal injury attorneys at KaplunMarx stand ready to assist you in pursuing justice and obtaining reparations for your injuries.
We invite you to engage with us in a complimentary, confidential consultation. This provides an opportunity to examine the particulars of your case, while we offer insights into how we can lend our expertise to your cause.
Understanding Potential Damages in Your Personal Injury Case
In most personal injury cases, victims suffer a range of repercussions, impacting their physical, emotional, and financial well-being.
A legal professional from our Pittsburgh team specializing in personal injury law can aid in your pursuit of monetary (economic) and non-monetary (non-economic) damages. The magnitude of these damages varies based on the specific circumstances of the accident and the severity of your injuries. Our team can scrutinize the details of your case and offer a potential settlement estimate during your consultation.
Economic damages are quantifiable financial losses directly related to your injury. Documentation can substantiate these damages. For instance, if your injury required immediate and/or continued medical care, you likely have economic damages. These could encompass:
- Medical expenses, including the costs for therapy, medical equipment, and rehabilitation.
- Lost wages due to inability to work.
- Property damage.
- Diminished earning capacity if your injury precludes returning to work.
- Non-Economic Damages
Non-economic damages lack a precise monetary value and can be difficult to quantify. However, your attorney can assist in appraising these losses. They might include:
- Pain and suffering.
- Emotional distress.
- Mental anguish.
- Loss of life's pleasures.
- Embarrassment and humiliation.
- Scarring and disfigurement.
- Loss of companionship or consortium.
- Damages for wrongful death.
If your loved one succumbed to injuries from the accident, our team can support you in pursuing a wrongful death claim. For example, and as exemplified in Tulewicz v. Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, 606 A.2d 427 (Pa. 1992), successful claims could result in compensation for:
- Medical bills, inclusive of final medical expenses.
- Costs of nursing care.
- Funeral and burial expenses.
- Other expenses related to the accident.
- Loss of potential inheritance.
- Loss of consortium.
- Compensation for your loved one’s pain and suffering.
- Lost wages if you took time off work to assist them.
How KaplunMarx Can Help
Upon establishing a client-attorney relationship with you and taking on your case, our team at KaplunMarx will diligently engage in the following legal processes:
1. Conduct a comprehensive investigation of the incident, inclusive of a meticulous review of critical documents, such as witness testimonies, pursuant to the rules of evidence.
2. Accumulate and assess evidence to construct the most robust case possible, adhering to the principles set forth in the Federal Rules of Evidence.
3. Ascertain the parties responsible for the incident that led to your injuries under the principles of tort liability.
Compute all damages associated with your case, employing a damages assessment approach to quantify the value of your claim.
4. Facilitate all communication with involved parties, including opposing legal representatives and insurance companies, upholding the professional conduct rules.
5. Conduct negotiations with an aim to secure a fair settlement that accommodates your needs, relying on principles of Alternative Dispute Resolution where necessary.
6. If settlement negotiations do not yield a satisfactory outcome, we will draft and file a lawsuit within the time frame defined by the Pennsylvania statute of limitations, complying with Pennsylvania Civil Procedure Code.
7. Meet all relevant deadlines, ensuring adherence to procedural time limits, and handle the requisite legal documentation.
8. Provide lucid explanations of your legal rights and potential options, emphasizing informed decision-making, in line with our ethical obligation under the American Bar Association's Model Rules of Professional Conduct.

Navigating Insurance Companies: Essential Legal Considerations
Our dedicated personal injury attorneys at KaplunMarx in Allentown are well-versed in safeguarding Pennsylvania residents against the strategic maneuverings of insurance companies. Employing decades of experience in dealing with insurance claims, we can guide you to avoid any statements that may potentially undermine your case under the principles of estoppel or waiver. If it brings you greater peace of mind, we are prepared to undertake all correspondence with the insurance company and their legal representatives on your behalf.
Our legal assistance allows you to focus on recuperation, while we work for you to secure the compensation you are entitled to. We are equipped to manage the complexities and challenges that are part and parcel of insurance claims.
Beware of Substandard Settlement Proposals
In any claim involving an insurance company, it's critical to remember that insurance companies operate on a profit basis. Their initial strategy often involves proposing a subpar settlement offer, a practice colloquially known as 'lowballing.' They may also attempt to coerce you into signing a release, which, under the principle of accord and satisfaction, would preclude you from obtaining further compensation should your injuries deteriorate or necessitate additional care.
Our legal team has a wealth of experience in confronting insurance adjusters and their legal counsel. Armed with a sound understanding of insurance contract law and actuarial considerations, we can estimate a fair valuation of your claim and negotiate effectively for an enhanced settlement. Should negotiations fail to achieve a fair resolution, we are fully prepared to litigate your claim before the courts.
Emphasize Medical Examination
Insurance companies often exploit aspects of your medical treatment to depreciate or refute your claim, capitalizing on doctrines like comparative or contributory negligence. Should you neglect to consult a physician or adhere to a prescribed treatment regimen, they may contend that your actions exacerbated your condition.
We strongly advise seeking immediate medical attention following an accident, as this not only protects your health but also safeguards your right to compensation. Do not underestimate your injuries - certain medical conditions may exhibit delayed symptoms, and neglecting immediate attention may inadvertently exacerbate your condition.
Consistently attend your medical appointments, thereby leaving no room for insurers to dismiss your claim. Maintain copies of your medical records and receipts as these can substantiate the connection between your injuries and the accident, serving as a key piece of evidence in establishing the extent of your damages under the principle of proximate cause.
