We Can Help You Take Legal Action
There are various filing deadlines surrounding your case. How long you have to file an insurance claim depends on the policies set in place by that carrier.
However, how long you have to file a lawsuit is determined by 42 Pa. C.S.A. §5524. You generally have two years from the date of your accident (and two years from the date of your loved one’s passing) to file a lawsuit.
Berger and Green can help you:
File a Claim
Insurance companies increase their profits by keeping settlements low. Yet, Berger and Green can represent your best interests. We can:
- File your claim
- Calculate your damages
- Negotiate with the insurer
- Determine your coverage options
- Present evidence of negligence
Let us take care of the paperwork, deadlines, and communications so you can turn your attention to getting better.
File a Lawsuit
Our attorneys will work hard to settle your case outside of court. If we cannot satisfactorily resolve your case through insurance negotiations, we can assist with a lawsuit.
We will not let insurance companies lowball you or try to intimidate you into accepting a lower settlement than you deserve. If the insurer does not pay what you are owed, then we can take your case to court and advocate for your rights from there.

We Can Gather Evidence to Prove Negligence
To “win” your case, we will need to show how another driver acted negligently. Some forms of negligence that may have resulted in your accident include:
- Running traffic signs and stop lights
- Weaving between lanes of traffic
- Making an improper turn
- Failing to yield
- Driving while intoxicated
- Texting, eating, grooming, or engaging in other distracting behaviors
- Driving aggressively
Our team can use eyewitness statements, expert testimony, and accident reports as evidence to prove that another driver acted negligently.
Photographs and video and surveillance footage can be used when applicable. We will show your accident led to financial damages using medical bills, vehicle repair invoices, and your employment records.
