Frequently Asked Questions about Car Accidents in Philadelphia

Do I still have a car accident claim if I am partly to blame for the crash?

Under state law, you may still pursue a car accident claim so long as you were not more at fault for causing the crash than the party or parties that you are filing your claim against. However, any compensation that you might be entitled to may be reduced in proportion to your share of fault for causing the accident.

What is the statute of limitations on car accident lawsuits?

In Philadelphia, you normally have only two years from the date of a car crash to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver or party. If you wait too long to file suit, you run the risk that your case will be dismissed for being untimely and you will lose your right to recover compensation for your injuries and losses.

Do I need a lawyer to accept an insurance settlement?

Ideally, you should never accept a settlement from the insurance company without first speaking with a Philadelphia car accident lawyer. Although getting quick compensation after a car crash can seem helpful, an early settlement offer from the insurance company rarely provides the full financial recovery you need and deserve. An auto accident attorney in Philadelphia, PA with Baldwin Matzus, LLC can help you better understand the true value of your case and review the terms of any settlement you are offered to advise whether it provides fair compensation for you.
