We’ll Stand Up Against the Insurance Companies For You
Navigating through the legal process and dealing with insurance companies can be overwhelming. To recover compensation after an accident, it’s essential to level the playing field against insurance companies. No matter what an insurance adjuster tries to make you believe, the fact is insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible for your accident claim. An adjuster works for the insurance company. They have a responsibility to try to pay you as little as possible. Insurance adjusters will try to get you to settle your case early before you even know the full extent of your injuries and before you even stop treatment. This is where our team of experienced car accident attorneys can help. We work hard to fight for the compensation you’re due.
How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Claim in Pennsylvania?
Each state has a unique statute of limitations to limit how long a claimant has to file a car accident lawsuit. Pennsylvania courts take the statute of limitations very seriously. According to PA law, you have two years from your car accident date to file a personal injury claim. If there were injuries that were not discovered until after the car accident, such as experiencing neck or back pain a few days later, the clock would not start ticking until the injury discovery date. The courts will typically not agree to hear a case if the claimant has missed their deadline to file. Even if the courts allow the claimant to proceed, it will most likely drop it later when the defendant uses the missed deadline to defend the claim.
If you lost a loved one, you have two years from the person’s date of death to file a wrongful death claim. Different types of accident claims have other deadlines. It’s crucial to speak to a lawyer about your specific case.
