Car Accident FAQs

What Should I Do After A Car Accident?

There are certain things you can do after a collision to help protect your right to compensation—and there are also things you should avoid lest you jeopardize it.

  • Don't apologize: No matter the situation, you should never say you are sorry after a car crash. The other party's insurance company may use this against you as an admission of guilt if you pursue further compensation through a personal injury lawsuit.
  • Get the other party's insurance information: Even though you will be pursuing compensation through your own insurance company, it's important to gather the other party's insurance information in case you need it for future use.
  • Make sure you report the accident to law enforcement: Having a police report on file is a valuable piece of evidence for your car accident claim.
  • Take photos of the scene and vehicles: Photographic evidence of the crash can be incredibly important if you need to prove negligence further down the road.
  • Document your injuries: This can include taking photos of your injuries hours, days, and weeks after the accident or talking to a loved one about how you are feeling.
  • Seek medical attention: The shock of the accident can prevent you from feeling the full effects of your injuries until days or weeks later. Even if you don't feel hurt right away, you should always visit your doctor as soon as possible after an accident so that your injuries can be documented and treated by a medical professional.
  • Let your attorney do the talking: The sad fact is, your insurance company is not always on your side. They are able to take advantage of policy holders who do not know the ins and outs of insurance and personal injury law, that is why you need a legal advocate who can uphold your rights and fight for your best interests.

What If I Am Partially To Blame For The Accident?

Pennsylvania operates under a "modified comparative negligence rule" when it comes to shared fault, which means that even if you are partially to blame for the accident that caused your injuries, you can still recover compensation from a personal injury lawsuit. Only if you are found to be more than 50% at fault for the accident will you be prevented from receiving damages.

How Long Do I Have To File An Injury Claim?

The Pennsylvania statute of limitations for these types of claims is two years, but it's best to get started on your personal injury claim as soon as possible after an accident so that your attorney can speak on your behalf with the insurance company and start collecting evidence to defend your claim.

How Much Will I Receive in a Car Accident Lawsuit?

Determining the exact amount of a car accident settlement is challenging, as compensation is contingent on the severity of your injuries and the extent of damages incurred. This amount could vary greatly, ranging from tens of thousands to millions of dollars. The key factors include:

  • The nature of your injuries
  • Your personal circumstances, such as whether you supported a family
  • The costs associated with your recovery or lost wages from missing work
  • The circumstances surrounding the accident and who was at fault
  • Amount of insurance coverage

At The Beasley Firm, our ultimate objective is to secure the maximum amount possible for you. While money cannot fully address the emotional toll or bring back loved ones, it can provide a sense of stability to you and your family by covering medical expenses and easing the financial burden that arises from such tragic events.
