Experienced Centre County Injury Attorneys
Obviously, we hope you never have to deal with an accident and its aftermath, however, statistically speaking, there is a good chance that you will be involved in more than one auto accident over your lifetime, and possibly another type of accident as well. When you have suffered a Centre County, PA accident, you may find your world altered in ways you could never have imagined. One moment you were going to work, going to school, running errands, or enjoying a night out, and the next you are left injured, facing piles of medical bills and wondering how you will stay financially solvent. The insurance company may have offered you a paltry settlement amount—an amount that would not even cover your medical expenses, let alone your lost wages and pain and suffering.
You have the right to seek compensation from the responsible party, however, having an experienced attorney from Ciccarelli Law Offices in your corner will help ensure the outcome of your accident is at least financially positive. Our attorneys will go to work immediately, working on your behalf to negotiate with the insurance company for a fair settlement amount—an amount that will cover all your expenses. We will begin talking to the insurance company and begin negotiating a settlement, we will gather all the necessary evidence related to your case, and we will find any eyewitnesses to the accident and obtain statements from those eyewitnesses.
The Best of Centre County, PA
Centre County, PA had a population of about 154,000 as of 2010; the county seat of Centre County is Bellefonte. James Potter first recorded the lands of the future Centre County after reaching the top of Nittany Mountain and seeing the prairies and forests below. Following the Revolutionary War, Centre County was created from parts of Huntingdon, Lycoming, Mifflin, and Northumberland Counties. The first white settler emigrant to the area was Andrew Boggs, and in 1775, Reverend Philip Vickers Fithian, a young Presbyterian minister from Princeton, wrote a vivid account of frontier life in the area. The discovery of iron ore—known as central Pennsylvania’s “gold”—in 1784 brought new momentum to the area.
Those who come to Centre County today will experience a wealth of fun and beautiful Pennsylvania scenery. Lincoln Caves and Whisper Rock, Woodward Cave, Black Moshannon State Park, and the Arboretum at Penn State are some of the many outdoor activities families will enjoy.
