For almost 10 years before joining Lepley, Engelman, Yaw & Wilk, my practice was 100% in the personal injury field. I worked for insurance companies defending personal injury lawsuits brought against their insureds. I have now brought the unique perspective of having worked on the other side of personal injury cases to this firm.
I believe that the unique insights and information I have gained from working with insurance companies and their claims representatives proves to be an invaluable resource when it comes to handling personal injury law suits. Having worked with insurance companies, I know how they think and how they value cases. I have also learned what information causes an insurance company to increase the offer they make on a particular case as well as what information causes them to decrease their evaluation in a particular case.
