If you were a passenger in a vehicle involved in a Pittsburgh crash, you can pursue compensation for your lost wages, medical bills, and more. The team from Berger and Green can help you file an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit.
Pennsylvania’s choice no-fault car insurance system is sometimes difficult to understand and navigate. We can explain which insurance policy applies and help you fight for the payout you deserve. We can also file a lawsuit on your behalf, if necessary.
Understanding Your Insurance Coverage as a Passenger in a Pittsburgh Crash
When it comes to getting compensation for your medical care and lost wages after a car accident, you must typically rely on your own no-fault policy first followed by the no-fault policy of the driver you were riding with. If you, your child, or your spouse sustained injuries as a passenger in the car accident, your no-fault policy should pay out to cover your medical care and lost wages up to the policy limits.
If you do not drive and do not have car insurance coverage, you could turn to the policy held by the driver of the car you were in. A driver’s auto insurance policy should cover the injuries, and lost wages of anyone hurt as a passenger of their car regardless of who is liable for the accident, up to the limits of the policy.
Recovering Pain and Suffering Damages After a Pennsylvania Accident
When it comes to recovering compensation for pain and suffering, called bodily injury damages in PA, after a Pittsburgh crash, we may be able to help you hold the at-fault driver accountable. Depending on your injuries you could be missing work and feeling lost as to how you can afford to recover both physically and financially. The at-fault driver’s auto liability insurance policy should payout to cover your noneconomic damages such as pain and suffering and mental anguish after a crash they caused.
The team from Berger and Green can help you identify the liable party, file an insurance claim, or even file suit if necessary. It is important to reach out to us as soon as possible, however.
