Stoehr & Smith, LLC
Providing Dedicated and Caring Services to Injured People
Pennsylvania Injury Attorneys Who Used to Work For the Other Side Now Working For You
Virtually every personal injury claim is made against the Defendant’s insurance company. This is precisely why you need our law firm: our two senior attorneys used to work for the other side. We know the tactics used by the insurance companies to devalue your claim. In essence, we know their tricks! So do not let the insurance companies discuss your claim with you first. Instead, call us first to protect you from the start and make sure that you will be getting the full and fair compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
All consultations are free. There is no cost to you unless a financial recovery is made on your behalf.
Lawyers Who Know the Tricks Insurance Companies Use
The personal injury attorneys at our law firm have over 45 years combined experience working in the personal injury field. Attorney Doug Stoehr worked as a claims representative for two major insurance companies while putting himself through law school. He has personal experience in handling claims, and knows the tactics, strategies, and tricks the insurance companies use to get you to settle for less. Attorney Nathaniel Smith practiced as a personal injury defense lawyer. While defending the insurance companies in trial on numerous occasions, he gained invaluable experience and insight into the practice of insurance defense law which he uses every day when working on the plaintiff side to negotiate and prepare cases for trial on your behalf.
We now work exclusively for you, the injured Plaintiff. The insight we gained from working for the insurance companies assists you in getting the compensation you deserve. If you are injured in an accident through no fault of your own, we will aggressively represent you to make sure that the insurance companies do not take advantage of you. We’re in it to win it.
Big City Experience in Western and Central Pennsylvania
Attorney Smith attended law school and worked first as a Plaintiff's personal injury lawyer and then as a personal injury defense lawyer in Pittsburgh. Attorney Stoehr worked as an insurance claims representative and attended law school in Philadelphia. However, both returned home to Blair County to represent injured victims in Blair and the surrounding counties throughout Western and Central Pennsylvania. Our aggressive yet professional representation of our clients has earned us the respect of the local courts and the insurance companies, and their attorneys. We are familiar with many of the physicians and healthcare professionals with whom you will be treating. Having grown up in this area, Attorneys Stoehr & Smith are familiar with the roads, businesses, and locations where accidents occur. All of this is a benefit to you: let Attorneys Stoehr & Smith handle your claim while you focus on getting well and recovering from your injuries.
Attorneys Who Prepare for Trial Every Time
At Stoehr & Smith, L.L.C., each case is handled personally by an attorney. You are not handed off to a paralegal or a legal assistant, only to have your case merely supervised by a distant and sometimes hard to reach attorney. You will always meet and speak with either Attorney Stoehr or Attorney Smith throughout the course of your claim. Phone calls are returned promptly and you are kept informed every step of the way.
The truth is that most personal injury cases settle before they go to a trial, but at Stoehr & Smith, L.L.C., we prepare each case as if it is going to trial. We bring in top-notch experts and investigators — former police officers, doctors, engineers and specialists — to build a strong case. We know the insurance companies are working hard to reduce the amount of money they will have to pay, so we prepare for a battle from day one. The insurance companies know us and know our reputation for vigorously preparing for trial.
The attorneys at Stoehr & Smith, L.L.C., have over 45 years of combined personal injury experience. We are aggressive litigators and are prepared for trial if your case cannot settle.
