We often hear the following questions related to motor vehicle accident injuries.

What if I was partially at fault for my accident?

Pennsylvania is a no-fault insurance state. This means that even if you are partially at fault, you will still have the ability to file a claim with your own insurance company for benefits on your policy. Partial fault does not, however, exclude you from also collecting compensation from another motorist’s insurer or from filing a lawsuit.

When should I file a lawsuit?

You and your lawyer will likely pursue the lawsuit route when all parties cannot agree on a settlement amount or when insurers’ damage recovery amounts do not make up for your personal and financial losses.

What are the usual causes of car accidents?

The most common causes for motor vehicle accidents are:

  • Drunk driving
  • Reckless driving or excessive speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to stop

There are, of course, numerous other causes. But these are at the root of most car accidents.

What will my compensation cover?

Compensation for your auto accident injury will cover medical expenses and other bills affected by your injury. It will also cover future lost wages, pain and suffering, humiliation, embarrassment, disability, disfigurement and more.

Why do I need a lawyer for my injury claim?
