Top 5 Questions After A Car Accident
After a car accident, what you do now can affect your legal rights and your rights to compensation for your losses, medical bills, and pain & suffering.
Listed below are the top 5 questions people typically have after a car accident.
1. Who pays for Property Damage, specifically the damage to my vehicle?
If the other driver is at fault for the accident, their insurance company is typically responsible for paying for the damage to your vehicle.
2. Who will pay for the medical bills I have after the accident?
Under Pennsylvania law, it does not matter who is at fault for the car accident, as Pennsylvania is a no-fault insurance state. Under no-fault laws, your own insurance company is responsible to pay your medical bills regardless of who caused the car accident. If you are not at fault, your insurance company is not allowed to increase your premiums and/or cancel your coverage.
A car accident last weekend resulted in quite a bit of property damage as an Erie man drove his vehicle into the front of a jewelry store on Main Street at approximately 5:30pm. Thankfully, nobody was injured, as the store owner was in the back of the store closing up for the evening.
Diamonds and lots of gold spilled into the city street and local police are asking for help to recover some missing items.
