What Does The Pennsylvania No-Fault Insurance Law Mean?


Pennsylvania is one of a couple of states in the country that follows a no-fault motor vehicle insurance law. It was originally established to reduce the volume of court cases in the small claims court for all manner of motor vehicle accidents. The law has several intricacies, many of which play a role in determining how much compensation a person injured in a car crash can claim.

If you’ve been involved in a car crash and have suffered injury or damage to property, talk to a Pennsylvania insurance claims attorney as soon as possible. The state’s car accident insurance laws are complex, even for the most experienced drivers.

What Are The Top Causes of Commercial Truck Driving Accidents?


Commercial truck accidents are not quite the same as regular car crashes. A collision with a passenger vehicle such as a taxi or an Uber is very different from a collision with an 18-wheeled, 80,000-pound truck. The sheer mass and weight of the truck can magnify the impact of the crash, leading to serious injury or even death.

Many truck accidents could have been avoided if the drivers were fully alert, the trucks had proper functioning equipment or the road was well-maintained. If you or someone you love was injured or killed in a truck accident, you may have a case for compensation.

Top three reasons not to talk to the other side’s insurance company after an accident


After an accident, it is prudent to get in contact with your insurance company soon after. The liability stipulations in your insurance contract usually mandate this, and it is important to relay to them the details of what happened.

Insurance companies rely on the evidence and information you give them as they make decisions on compensation and courses of action. If you delay to talk with your insurance company, you might forget key details.

However, it is inevitable after you exchange contact information with anyone else involved in the accident that you will be contacted by some sort of representative for the other parties involved.

What types of compensation can I expect after an automobile accident?


If you’ve been involved in an auto accident, you know what a toll it can take on your life, especially from a financial standpoint. You’ve likely lost time at work, had to pay additional medical expenses that you would not have had to pay if you had not been in an accident and maybe even had to pay for a new vehicle or substantial repairs. If someone else caused this accident, you should not be the one that has to foot the bill for all of this. That is why we have personal injury lawsuits in order to make you whole following an auto accident.

The question is, what does it really take to make you whole? There’s a lot to consider and it can be argued that no amount of monetary damages can ever make you “completely whole.
