Here are some questions you may have:

What is the most common cause of a car accident?

There are a number of different causes of car accidents, however, driver negligence is usually the culprit. While drivers have a duty and a commitment to stay alert while on the road, unfortunately, many people are distracted by devices, their surroundings, or other drivers on the road. Distracted driving can result in a devastating accident, causing one or more people to suffer serious injury or death. Keep in mind, however, that distracted driving is not the only form of driver negligence that may induce an accident. Driving recklessly, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving drowsy, and more can result in a car crash. If you are hurt in a car accident, you may be facing a wide array of physical, emotional, and financial burdens from the cost of medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages, and more. If you are in this unfortunate situation, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

What injuries can be sustained from a car accident in Pennsylvania?

Car accidents can result in a number of life-altering injuries. These can include traumatic brain injuries, spine injuries, broken bones/fractures, sprains, emotional trauma, lacerations, disfigurement, and more. If you were hurt in a car accident in Pennsylvania, it is in your best interest to reach out to an experienced personal injury attorney today. At Friedman Schuman, our legal team is committed to ensuring you obtain the compensation you need to heal.

What is Pennsylvania’s no-fault law?

In the event that someone is injured in a car accident in Pennsylvania, they are protected under the state’s no-fault laws. However, Pennsylvania is a “choice no-fault” or a “limited tort” state. This signifies that drivers have the option to choose whether their insurance is going to be a modified no-fault plan or a traditional no-fault plan.

How long do I have to file my car accident claim?

In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations for most car accident claims is two years. This provides wrongfully-injured parties two years from the date their accident happened to file their personal injury claim. If you wait longer than two years to file this claim, you will likely lose out on the opportunity to obtain compensation for your burdens.
