Philadelphia Auto Accident Attorney Dan Jaffe
Auto accidents happen all the time. They might involve two cars. Or a Septa bus or trolley. Or a motorcycle. Or a truck or other commercial vehicle. There are many ways vehicle accidents happen. They can also happen while you are working. Regardless how the accident happened, or whose vehicle you were driving or were a passenger in, these incidents can easily change your life. Plus, the laws involving vehicle accidents are complicated. You have to know the difference between limited tort and full tort coverage, and you may have other claims, including uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist claims. And if your accident happened on the job, then you must deal with workers' compensation as well.
Injuries from vehicle accidents vary dramatically. They often include head injuries, neck injuries and lower back injuries, but they may also include brain injuries, broken bones, and a wide range of other conditions. Regardless of how the accident occurred, or the type of injury suffered, in that moment, a person's life is often changed forever. After this life-altering event, and most times before the healing is complete, the employee must deal with insurance companies and doctors, as well as investigators, the police and auto body shops. To help you navigate through all of the laws and rules that apply to these claims, you need Attorney Dan Jaffe, who knows and understands the system.
Auto Accident Victims need someone on their side
Motor vehicle accident victims need an experienced attorney who will explain the auto insurance laws, answer questions, provide advice, and fight the insurance companies to assure their rights are fully protected and they receive all that they are entitled to.
At the Law Offices of Daniel M. Jaffe, we only represent persons injured in accidents. We never represent employers or insurance companies. We fight for you. We fight for your rights.
Automobile insurance is complicated, and it helps to have a lawyer on your side who can explain the ins and outs of these matters. For example, even if you have limited tort coverage, which may limit your right to be compensated for your pain and suffering, there are exceptions that can turn your claim into a full tort claim. Plus, regardless of whether you have a full tort or limited tort claim, you may still be entitled to wage losses and other damages.
You may also be entitled to uninsured motorist benefits. Uninsured motorist (UM) benefits provide compensation to people who are injured in motor vehicle accidents caused by uninsured drivers. Or, if the driver who caused your accident did not have sufficient insurance coverage, you can recover underinsured motorist benefits. Regardless, you need an attorney who knows and understands the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law (Pennsylvania's auto insurance law), and will fight so that you receive all of the benefits you are entitled to.
Cases involving trucks, buses, trolleys, trains, and motorcycles may be different from a traditional automobile accident claim. For example, different laws apply to subways and trolleys, and the insurance laws are different for motorcycle operators. And if you were hurt on the job, your claim will also involve the Pennsylvania workers' compensation law.
Regardless of the type of auto accident claim, the motor vehicle insurance system is complicated, and includes many laws and rules designed to confuse and intimidate injured victims. Injured people may be forced to deal with doctors, private investigators, nurses and, of course, insurance companies, whose only goal is to cut costs and prevent injured accident victims from receiving the medical care they need.
