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?

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.

"About two years ago, I had a car accident in Bethlehem and got injured. Some of the other lawyers did not want to look at my case because of my low insurance. I finally found Drake, Hileman & Davis. They did their best to defend my rights. Finally I got what I want (considerable amount of compensation) with the great help of the company. Thank you so much for the excellent service."
