Stroudsburg Car Accident Lawyer
Car accidents are the most common cause of injury in Pennsylvania and the United States, and when a car accident occurs, it is almost always the fault of one of the drivers involved. Indeed, most car accidents are completely preventable, and would not occur but for negligent drivers.
At the Needle Law Firm, our Stroudsburg car accident lawyers know how devastating car crashes can be, and how complicated navigating the claims process often is. When you call our law firm, we will work diligently on your behalf to get you the maximum amount of compensation possible.
Injuries and Damages from a Car Accident
Car accidents often leave those involved and their family members with devastating losses. To be sure, common injuries that result from a motor vehicle collision include head and traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, internal injuries, bone fractures, soft tissue injuries, and more, including psychological injuries. These injury types are expensive to treat, and often leave an individual with a long-term disability. When medical expenses are combined with property damage expenses and lost wages, and individual and their family members may be facing tens of thousands of dollars in losses – something that is grossly unfair, especially when the accident occurred through no fault of the victim.
The No-fault System in Pennsylvania
Even if you were not at fault for your car accident, Pennsylvania choice no-fault rules hold that you must file a personal injury protection (PIP) claim with your owninsurance company for damages, regardless of fault, if you chose no-fault coverage at the time that your policy was initiated. As a note, Pennsylvania does allow drivers to opt out of the no-fault system at the time they purchase insurance.
If you purchased limited tort coverage, you are barred from filing a claim for damages against the at-fault driver. However, there is an exception to this rule: if you suffer injuries that meet the state’s serious injury threshold, you can step outside of the no-fault system. Our lawyers can help you to understand your right to do this.
You Deserve to Be Fully Compensated
Whether you are filing a claim with your own insurance company, or pursuing a claim against the at-fault driver, you deserve to be fully compensated for the extent of your economic and noneconomic losses. We can help you to prove the value of your damages, as well as reject an unfair settlement offer and negotiate for your full compensation award. As lawyers with trial experience, we are not intimidated by the prospect of litigation when necessary – our goal is to make sure you get the settlement you deserve.
