There are several different ways that you can go about getting justice after you have suffered critical injuries in an Erie truck accident. The first is by filing a claim with the insurance company. Pennsylvania is a no-fault state for auto insurance. This means that you will be filing a claim with your own auto insurance provider even if someone else is responsible for causing your truck accident.
The insurance company is only going to be required to cover certain economic losses such as your medical bills and property damages. All of your other economic losses and non-economic damages will need to be sought after in a civil claim against the liable parties.
Insurance companies are also only required to pay out up to the limits of your policy. This means that if your medical bills exceed the limits of your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage, you will have additional medical expenses that need to be paid after your insurance settlement.
The thought of going to court is often intimidating and overwhelming for many victims of truck accidents in Erie. But going to court is also one of the best ways to ensure that you are awarded maximum compensation for your suffering. Let your truck accident lawyer handle the legal details of your case while you focus on recovering.
The only way that you can pursue a claim for a truck accident in Erie is by proving that someone else is at fault for causing the accident. In order to do this, your attorney will need to thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your collision to determine fault.
