Lancaster Personal Injury Lawyer
Serving Clients Throughout Pennsylvania
Expert Representation from a Nationally Board Certified Trial Specialist
In most areas of law, experience matters. This is especially true in the case of personal injury and wrongful death claims. Insurance adjusters and insurance company defense lawyers deal with accident claims every day. They know what a case is actually worth, and they know what an unrepresented person will likely settle for. The insurance company's goal is to settle a claim as quickly and cheaply as it can, or to avoid paying a claim at all if possible. You need a Lancaster personal injury lawyer on your side who knows the law and knows personal injury claims as well or better than the insurance companies.
Lancaster lawyer John P. Stengel is Board-Certified as a Civil Trial Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, the only organization approved by the American Bar Association and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to certify attorneys. With 25 years of courtroom experience, Mr. Stengel has handled countless cases of personal injury and wrongful death.
In addition to his Board Certification, Mr. Stengel has also attained an AV Preeminent rating from Martindale Hubbell, the leading lawyer and law firm directory and legal resource in the country. The AV Preeminent rating is assigned to lawyers who have demonstrated the highest level of legal ability, ethics and professionalism among their peers in the legal community. Other lawyers and the general public trust the quality and integrity of the AV Preeminent rating.
The courtroom experience that stands behind Mr. Stengel's 25 years of legal practice means that your case will be handled by an attorney with the knowledge, skills and resources to take your case all the way to a jury verdict if necessary to get the maximum compensation. Most personal injury cases settle without the need for a trial, but it is only by preparing for trial and negotiating from a position of strength that your lawyer can achieve the most favorable settlement. Some lawyers try to avoid trials because they are inexperienced in the courtroom, and insurance company lawyers take advantage of this fact when making settlement offers. But when the insurance companies know they are up against a Board-Certified Trial Specialist with decades of courtroom experience, they are much more likely to settle a claim for its true worth rather than risk a trial before a jury.
