When you are injured in an auto accident, the legal implications can be challenging. You must determine whether your claim will be paid by your insurance company or by the other driver’s insurer. If the other driver is uninsured, the situation becomes more difficult. In some cases, you may have to file suit against your own insurance company.
The Pennsylvania automobile accident law firm of Brookman, Rosenberg, Brown & Sandler (BRBS) fully understands the complexity of auto accident liability law. Our lawyers examine the specifics of your accident and advise you how to proceed. Not every car accident case leads to a large settlement. We give you a realistic expectation of the damages that you may be entitled to. Our Pennsylvania car accident attorneys ensure that you receive the maximum compensation allowed by law.
In Pennsylvania, every driver is required to carry no-fault auto insurance. This type of policy covers your economic losses after an auto accident, regardless of whether the accident was your fault or the other driver’s fault. Economic losses include—
Your insurance company seeks to minimize your compensation by disallowing certain medical procedures and challenging your inability to work while recovering. Our auto accident lawyers negotiate with your insurance company to make certain that you receive the most complete payments that your policy allows.
When your policy limits fall short of covering your actual expenses, we pursue payment from the other’s driver’s insurance company. If the other driver was uninsured—in violation of state law—we file a lawsuit to help you achieve full compensation for your actual damages.
No-fault auto accident insurance does not provide compensation for non-economic losses, such as—
You may be entitled to this type of award after an auto accident if you are determined to have been no more than 50% at fault. But, if you are found to share more than half of the fault for the accident—the 51% rule—then you are not entitled to any of the above damages. Our car accident lawyers focus on establishing the fault of the other driver so you can have the option of receiving non-economic compensation if possible.
