What Do I Do After a Car Accident?

You’ve been injured in a car accident. Now what?

So Many Questions:

  • What is No-Fault?
  • What is the difference between full tort and limited tort?
  • Should I give a recorded statement?
  • How much can I receive for pain and suffering?

We Have the Answers at Drake, Hileman & Davis.

For more than 30 years, the attorneys at Drake, Hileman & Davis, have been providing competent, compassionate and quality legal representation to those injured in car accidents.

Let us help you.

What is No-Fault?

Pennsylvania is a partial No-Fault State. Under Pennsylvania Law, regardless of who is at fault in a motor vehicle accident, certain bills and expenses are processed through your own automobile insurance. This applies even to pedestrians or even if you were occupying someone else’s car.

What is the difference between full tort and limited tort?

Whether full tort or limited tort applies is one of the biggest issues we see preventing injured individuals from receiving full compensation for their injuries. We will examine your coverage, explain the differences to you and look for ways to overcome a limited tort election.

Should I give a recorded statement?

The short answer is no. While there are some exceptions, we have seen cases where the insurance company tries to twist what is said to its advantage. At a minimum you should have your attorney present for any statement.

How much can I receive for pain and suffering?

The answer to this question depends on the nature of your injuries and the extent of your losses and harms. Given our more than 30 years of experience in handling accident claims, we have developed a reasonable range of pain and suffering settlements to guide us in evaluating the specifics of your claim.

Since 1985 Drake, Hileman & Davis has been helping the injured find answers. Knowing we can answer your questions, gives you the peace of mind to get back to enjoying the things in life that really count.

"Working with this firm was an amazing experience. I worked with Jeremy Puglia and from the very beginning I felt confident that he would do his absolute best for me. He took the time to inform me every step along the way and made me comfortable. Navigating the legal waters is a confusing process and I was grateful that Jeremy was there the whole time. He was great at communicating with me quickly and was flexible about meeting outside of his office. I would highly recommend him and should I have a need for a lawyer in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to contact Jeremy."
