Motor Vehicle Accidents
An automobile or motor vehicle accident can be an extremely stressful experience. The aftermath can be even worse when it comes to vehicle damage, injuries, and lost wages.
The laws relating to automobile insurance coverage are covered under 75 Pa.C.S.A. §§1701 et seq., (known as Act 6 Amendments to the PA Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law) or MVFRL.
If you have already been involved in a car accident, it is important that you speak with an attorney to assist you on what your insurance policy coverage means, what you are entitled to under your own policy, whether you are bound by full tort or limited tort coverage and how to go about making a claim against the other party involved in the accident. The law surrounding your property damage and/or liability claim is covered by a statute of limitations so it is extremely important you consult with a knowledgeable attorney who is familiar with the law to protect your claim.
In motor vehicle accidents, more often than not, you are dealing with two different claims at the same time. As the injured party, you are entitled to First Party Coverage (PIP) regardless of fault. The liability claim is your claim against the insurance carrier for the responsible party and is responsible to compensate you for your pain and suffering.
Whether you were a driver, passenger or pedestrian, it is important to act quickly so as not to lose any of your rights and get the best possible results.
