We Are Your Legal Team

Car Accident Victims Have A Solid Legal Ally In Us

In mere seconds, an auto accident can cause life-changing personal injuries. If you have been hurt, it is important to take the matter seriously. Many serious injuries do not get better over time. In fact, they get worse. Taking legal action can give you the resources necessary to get the care you need and to move forward after the accident.

At the Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, law offices of Shay, Santee, Kelhart & Deschler LLC, we represent people who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents. We also represent the surviving family members of people killed in wrecks, including the wrecks listed below:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents

When we take an auto accident case, we conduct a complete investigation of all the facts and laws that may affect you. We regularly partner with highly regarded experts who can visit the accident scene and review medical records. These accident reconstruction experts, engineers and doctors help build strong cases by testifying on your behalf.

We also interview witnesses and review other possibilities for your personal injury case. Sometimes, a simple car wreck is not so simple. Defective car parts — seat belts, air bags, tires or roofs — may be to blame. Dangerous or defective road conditions can also be responsible for the harm you experienced.

Making Right Decisions About The Car Insurance You Carry

Having enough insurance is critical, but you might not know how much it can affect you until it is too late. It is important to choose full tort coverage as opposed to limited tort coverage. If you select limited tort coverage, you may pay lower premiums now, but, if you are injured, you can only recover pain and suffering damages if you suffer a “serious injury.” The most frequently occurring injury in auto accidents, “whiplash” or cervical strain, is generally not deemed to be a “serious injury.”

The coverage value you carry should depend on the value of the assets you are protecting. So, consider what you have to lose and the resources available to pay for medical costs when choosing insurance. If the very worst happens — and we hope it doesn’t — having made the right decisions about your insurance can be life-changing.
