Building a Castle Shannon Car Accident Case
When our attorneys analyze a Castle Shannon car accident case, we first need to review the client’s insurance policy. Under 75 Pa. C.S.A. § 1705, Pennsylvania drivers have a choice about their car insurance coverage. They can opt for limited tort or full tort coverage.
Limited tort coverage means they must suffer serious injuries or meet other criteria before they can sue the at-fault driver. Full tort policies allow them to hold the at-fault driver legally liable in any case. Generally, we help clients build cases against the driver who caused their crash and pursue compensation for their injuries, expenses, and losses. This requires us to gather evidence of fault and liability.
We need to investigate, develop strong support for our allegations against that driver, and use the evidence we gathered to show the insurer, judge and jury, and other decision-makers what happened and who is legally responsible. Then we can often secure a negotiated settlement for our clients.

Damages Recoverable in a Castle Shannon Car Accident Case
When our attorneys seek compensation for a client in a Castle Shannon car accident case, we pursue just financial recovery based on the expenses, losses, and injuries they suffered. We believe this is the best way to get justice for a car accident victim. When possible, we hold the at-fault driver legally liable for their carelessness or recklessness behind the wheel.
We know car accident victims need compensation to help them pay for their medical treatment, cover lost wages, and pay other expenses related to their accident injuries. The damages that occur in Castle Shannon car accidents vary widely. Some victims experience catastrophic injuries and have lifelong expenses and losses. Others have relatively minor injuries and require only temporary care and support.
We identify the damages our clients experienced from the accident, value them, and seek commensurate compensation. Some common recoverable damages in car accident cases include:
- Medical bills, current and future
- Related treatment expenses and care costs
- Income lost because of missed work
- Diminished earning capacity if there are disabling injuries
- Property damages, including car repair
- Miscellaneous related costs
- Pain and suffering damages
Wrongful Deaths in Castle Shannon Crash Cases
Not all car accident victims survive their injuries or complications related to their crashes. When a victim dies from their injuries, Pennsylvania law allows their personal representative to pursue compensation for their heirs. It may be possible to recover money damages for funeral and burial expenses, medical bills, lost income, services, and intangible damages experienced by loved ones.

Timeline for Getting Started with a Castle Shannon Car Accident Case
While most car accident claims settle outside of court, we sometimes must sue the at-fault driver to recover fair compensation for our client. When this occurs, we generally only have up to two years to begin the process under Pa. C.S.A. § 5524. Missing this deadline could bar you from suing the at-fault driver and seeking fair compensation in court.
Many lawsuits also settle before they go to trial. Just because we file a lawsuit does not mean we stop negotiating for a fair and just payout for our clients. In fact, offers often increase after we sue the at-fault driver. The insurance company recognizes that we are serious about getting the money our client deserves or taking the case to trial. This prompts them to consider offering more money if it appears we have a strong case against their policyholder.
We must get started on these cases as early as possible. While we may have up to two years to sue, there are many reasons why getting started early is important. The sooner we start, the more evidence that is often available to support our clients’ cases. Evidence disappears over time. Some evidence only lasts days or weeks following a crash.
