Car Accidents

A serious car accident can be a very traumatic and life-changing event, as well as a painful and frustrating experience. Not only does this experience include the pain and frustration of managing multiple doctor visits, but also handling the legal process by filing an insurance claim, proving fault, and obtaining compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Having to handle the legal process while trying to heal and provide for your family can be simply overwhelming and turn your life upside down. This is why having the right legal representation can make all the difference in your recovery.

At Schlacter Law, we fight hard for victims of car accidents to turn their lives back around. We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients, including $1,625,0000, $825,000, $800,000 and $790,000 in just car accident cases alone. We make sure that insurance companies do not take advantage of our clients by blaming them for the car accident or minimizing their injuries. We offer a FREE consultation, and, if we accept your case, we will aggressively pursue your case, which may include hiring industry-leading professionals and experts. There is no risk to ask for our help because we only get paid if we recover compensation for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is Schlater Law different?

Schlacter Law is an aggressive and high-energy firm centered on clients. We pride ourselves on being able to navigate the confusing and overwhelming insurance claim process to preserve our clients’ rights to the compensation that they deserve. It does not matter if you were injured in a fender-bender or a catastrophic collision, we fight hard for all of our clients who have been seriously injured in a car accident. Our results speak for themselves.

Is hiring a lawyer necessary after a car accident?

The car accident is just the beginning of your problems. Handling the aggressive insurance companies while juggling your medical needs will quickly become overwhelming. Insurance adjusters are trained to make you believe you were at fault for every car accident and that your injuries are not as severe as you think. Their goal is to minimize your claim and the compensation to which you may be entitled. Hiring a car accident attorney such as our lawyer at Schlacter Law puts someone at your side who has the training and experience necessary to fight back at insurance companies in order to maximize the compensation to which you may be entitled.

How much is a car accident lawyer?

Schlacter Law operates on a contingency fee basis, which means you only pay us if we recover compensation for your claim. The contingency fee is a percentage of the settlement or award we obtain for you.

How Are Car Accident Settlements and Verdicts Calculated?

The amount of a settlement or jury award varies greatly depending on many factors including the facts of the case and the extent of your injuries. Expenses such as medical bills, car repair bills, lost wages, and other monetary losses can help start the calculation process. Determining your compensation for pain and suffering is more difficult and is generally what is reasonable compensation for your injuries. There are many ways to calculate the pain and suffering component. Some lawyers take a multiple of the medical bills. For example, if your medical bills are $100,000, the pain and suffering award could be three times that amount at $300,000. Some lawyers just present a fair number depending on many factors such as the severity of the case, the jury, the judge, and the insurance company. At Schlacter Law, our goal is to maximize this amount, putting more money in our clients’ pockets.

Reviews

Dr. Dean Zusmer, DC
I’ve been a chiropractic physician for over 20 years and, upon request, refer patients that were injured in car accidents to attorneys for legal representation. When my sister, Lisa, was injured in a car accident, without hesitation, I recommended her to call Attorney Brett Schlacter. I knew that she would not only get personalized attention, but that he would fight to get her the best compensation possible. Referring a family member to Mr. Schlechter is the most sincere compliment I could give him. If you, a friend or family member is injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident or slip and fall, I highly recommend Attorney Brett Schlacter at Schlacter Law.

I have known Brett for several years through my husband, who is his childhood best friend. So, when I was involved in a bad car accident, I didn’t hesitate to contact Brett when I needed help. Even though I live in Delaware, Brett was able to help me quickly settle my claim with the insurance company. At the time, I was involved in my Master’s Program, so Brett took control in contacting the insurance company and handling all of the paperwork. He was there to answer any questions I had about the process. Brett made the process very easy and worry free for me and I was very happy with the settlement he was able to obtain from the insurance company. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who was in need of a competent, compassionate and trustworthy Personal Injury Attorney.

Mr. Schlacters office took such good care of my and my case. I didn’t think there was any chance of recovering my costs after getting hit by an uninsured driver, but this office got it done and was so professional throughout the whole ordeal. Would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone.

I was referred to Brett by a great friend and I am so glad I was! He was so helpful, knowledgeable and so patient with me. He answered all my questions and was so professional about it! He was amazing at following up with me and checking in with me! And when I would reach out with questions he was right there to respond and did not play a waiting game. I would highly recommend him and his team. Thank you so much Brett!
