A car accident can disrupt every area of your life. A collision can cause severe injuries that leave you unable to work or participate in activities you enjoy.

Is Pennsylvania a No-Fault State?

Pennsylvania is a no-fault state. Therefore, residents of the state can file a claim with their own insurance company if they are injured in a car accident.

By filing a claim with their own insurance company, many people feel that they are guaranteed compensation for their injuries and that receiving benefits will be an easy process. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Insurance claims can be denied or undervalued, and you may be left unable to cover your expenses. For this reason, it is essential to have an attorney on your side who will fight for the compensation you deserve.

Car Accident Causes

Car accidents can be caused by the negligence of drivers, as well as external factors that may be the result of another party’s negligence. Determining the cause of a car accident is an important part of identifying liability and eventually recovering compensation for losses.

Some of the most common causes of car accidents include:

  • Reckless driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Road conditions
  • Mechanical issues
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Inclement weather

Car Accident Damages

Car accidents cause extensive damage — both financial and non-economic. If you have been injured in a car accident, it is likely that most of your financial damages are medical bills. You may have also sustained property damage. To resolve this issue, you may need to pay for repairs, a new vehicle, or temporary transportation (such as a rental car, public transportation, or rideshare services). Additionally, you may not be able to work because of your injuries. If so, the expenses resulting from lost wages are an additional cost.

Being injured in a car accident can cause a person to suffer from significant non-economic damages. Non-economic damages include any cost resulting from a car accident that is not tangible, such as pain and suffering. It is possible to recover compensation for non-economic damages as well.
