Media Auto Accident Lawyers Pursue Personal Injury Claims

Southeastern Pennsylvania attorneys obtain compensation for crash victims

Roads and highways are dangerous places. Drivers’ careless actions can cause serious injuries to themselves as well as to passengers, pedestrians and others on the road. If you have been injured in an auto accident due to someone else’s negligence, and your own auto insurance does not fully compensate you for your medical costs and other damages, you need a capable lawyer to pursue a claim or lawsuit against the other driver. The personal injury attorneys of The Pagano Law Firm in Media represent auto accident victims in Pennsylvania. We will gain a full understanding of the accident and your injuries and then provide vigorous representation for you and your family.

Determined attorneys seek the damages you are entitled to

In any motor vehicle accident, the first place to look for compensation for your bodily injuries, lost earnings and other damages is your own auto insurance. Pennsylvania allows you to choose between “limited tort” and “full tort” motor vehicle insurance options. If you are covered by the “limited tort” insurance option, you normally may seek recovery for all of your medical and other out-of-pocket expenses but not for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering unless you suffered a serious injury, which means either serious impairment of a bodily function or permanent and serious disfigurement.

However, you may also seek recovery of non-economic as well as economic damages from a negligent driver who was:

  • Convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in the accident. This includes a driver accepted into the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program.
  • Intentionally trying to injure himself or others
  • Driving a motor vehicle registered out of state
  • Uninsured
  • Driving a commercial vehicle, such as a tractor trailer

If you are covered by Pennsylvania’s “full tort” insurance alternative, you may seek all of your damages from the negligent driver regardless of how seriously you were injured or whether the negligent driver meets any of the foregoing exceptions. We can explain what coverage you have and what damages you are entitled to seek.

Personal injury attorneys handle legal aftermath of trucking accidents

Large commercial vehicles like tractor trailers are particularly dangerous due to their size and weight and their limited maneuverability and lines of sight. For that reason their owners and operators must meet special standards and conform to special regulations to protect themselves and others on the road. If you are a victim of a trucking accident, we will investigate such issues as whether the truck was poorly maintained, the driver was unqualified or regulations were violated. We will pursue all potentially responsible parties, which might include the company that owned the truck and/or employed the driver.

Experienced at recovering damages in motorcycle accident cases

Motorcycles are as entitled to operate on roads and highways as any other vehicles. However, two-wheeled vehicles are less stable and their unprotected riders are more prone to serious injuries. If you are a motorcyclist hurt in an accident as the result of another driver’s negligence, we will fully investigate your claim and will vigorously seek to hold the other driver responsible.
