Norristown Car Accident Attorney
Car accidents are common in Norristown, ranging in severity from minor rear-end collisions to serious multi-car rollovers.

Your Legal Options After a Pennsylvania Car Accident
Most states follow a fault-based insurance system, which requires negligent drivers to pay for the damages they cause. Pennsylvania’s no-fault system requires each individual driver to pay for his or her own damages following a collision, regardless of fault. State insurance laws require you to purchase coverage to pay for certain damages, such as medical expenses.
You have three main options to seek compensation:
- Filing a claim with your own insurance company
- Filing a lawsuit in Pennsylvania civil court
- Filing a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance, if you meet serious injury threshold
Your options may differ depending on if you have limited tort or full tort insurance coverage; under the full tort system, you may recover other damages, even if you do not meet the serious injury threshold. Your car accident lawyer will advise you on which pathway is right for you.
Speaking to an Insurance Company After a Car Accident
After your accident, an insurance adjuster may reach out to you and ask for a statement. He or she may say that if you provide a statement or accept an early settlement offer, you will receive the money you need to recover faster. While this may be tempting, it is important to wait to speak to your attorney before accepting any offers or speaking to insurance representatives.
The truth is that insurance companies are not always on the side of the victims. It is in the best interest of adjusters to protect the company’s bottom line by saving costs as much as possible. This means that the offer you accept is likely lower than one if you filed a claim or a lawsuit, and may not be sufficient to compensate your damages. If you give a premature statement, the company can use what you say against you if you discover new information later on. All of these factors can make it difficult to seek full compensation.
Your attorney from Rosenbaum & Associates will advocate for your highest possible payout from these companies. We can evaluate your claim, calculate an estimated settlement, and assess any offers you receive. Before talking to an adjuster, contact your lawyer first.
