you've been injured in a car accident, legal issues arise immediately,
whether or not you have a lawyer. Insurance carriers for both
drivers, or in some cases, multiple drivers, may want formal statements
to determine who is at fault or who had the right of way. Questions of

In fact, more than any other area of personal injury law, your rights in relation to a motor vehicle accident (MVA) injury in Pennsylvania will be bound up with decisions that may have been made about your insurance status long before the accident happened. Sometimes, your rights will be controlled by a decision you never had the chance to make -- such as when a spouse or family member has elected the "limited tort" option on the policy of insurance for your family car.
The Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law (MVFRL), the major law controlling your rights when you are injured as the driver or passenger of a car involved in an accident, is extremely complex in its application. Nearly every provision and sub-provision has been the subject of a dispute or put up for interpretation in our courts. The law has evolved from year to year, as some cases favor the rights of injury victims, while others side with insurance companies. Any attempt to explain the Pennsylvania laws applicable to car accidents here would require a huge expansion of this web site.
For these reasons, if you have been injured in a car accident, whether your injuries are serious and permanent, or may be only minor or temporary, and whether your insurance policy provides "full tort" rights or states that it is a "limited tort" policy, it is very important that you speak with an experienced Philadelphia Car Accident Lawyer to determine exactly what your rights are.
