Building a Cranberry Township Car Accident Case
Unlike many states, not all Pennsylvania car accident victims can sue the at-fault driver and recover compensation. Pennsylvania follows a choice no-fault insurance system under 75 Pa. C.S.A. § 1705. This means drivers elect whether they want to retain this right or not when purchasing auto insurance. Drivers in Cranberry Township have two options for car insurance:
- Limited Tort: Limited tort policies prevent you from suing the at-fault driver in a crash unless you meet certain criteria or can show you suffered serious injuries.
- Full Tort: Full tort policies allow you to retain the right to sue the at-fault driver and hold them responsible for their negligent actions, including your injuries and related expenses.
When our team determines you can pursue compensation in a fault-based claim, we need to ensure you have the necessary evidence of negligence and liability to show what happened and why the at-fault driver is legally responsible. Our attorneys know what it takes to document fault, liability, and our client’s related damages. We conduct an investigation, which requires us to:
- Obtain the police report and other official documents
- Request the relevant medical records
- Identify and interview eyewitnesses
- Survey the accident scene
- Seek video or photos of the crash
- Work with accident reconstruction experts
- Call in medical experts as necessary
- Gather documentation needed to value the case
Once we have strong support for an insurance claim or lawsuit, our team can act. We prepare the necessary paperwork and begin a lawsuit or file a claim. We are often able to negotiate a settlement for our clients through this process. You can focus on treatment, healing, and returning to your normal activities while we take care of your legal case.

Damages Available in a Cranberry Township Car Accident Claim or Lawsuit
When we pursue compensation for a client hurt in a car crash, we are seeking money for the expenses and losses they experienced.

When possible, we help our clients hold the at-fault party legally responsible.
The damages recoverable differ in each case, but they often involve many of the same expenses and losses. Some common damages we seek for our clients include:
- Medical bills and related expenses
- Future care and support costs
- Lost income from time missed at work
- Reduced earning capacity for lasting injuries
- Car repair or replacement
- Related expenses

Timeline for Suing an At-Fault Driver in Your Cranberry Township Car Crash
Generally, you have two years to sue the at-fault driver in a Cranberry Township crash under Pa. C.S.A. § 5524. Missing this deadline could jeopardize your right to recover fair compensation, so we strive to ensure all clients meet any applicable deadlines.
Many car accident cases settle without going to court. We navigate the claims process for our clients and present strong evidence to show fault and liability. We present our claim to the insurance company representing the at-fault driver. We demand a fair payout and negotiate with the insurer until we reach an acceptable offer. Our client signs a release stating they will not pursue additional damages as we close the case.
Occasionally, a lawsuit is necessary. Our team will advise you if we believe it is the best option in your case. Many lawsuits also settle out of court, avoiding trial.
