Pennsylvania Car Insurance and First Party Benefits

If you've ever seen the bill after an emergency room visit, it can be shocking. So, it's important to know who handles the medical costs after your car accident. Most drivers simply assume that the at-fault party's insurance will pay for their medical costs. In Pennsylvania, that's not generally the case:

  • First Party Benefits – This pays for your medical bills and is defined by the coverage on YOUR insurance policy. That means that your insurance company will pay any medical costs up to the limits of your coverage. After that, your personal health insurance covers the expenses.
  • No Car Insurance? – Without car insurance, you will be limited in the amount of compensation you can receive. If the other driver was at fault, you may be able to bring a personal injury case against him or her if you can prove negligence. Call us today. Our legal professionals can help.
  • Hit By a Driver Without Insurance? – Underinsured/Uninsured Motorist coverage is your best protection against drivers without insurance or with lacking coverage. The amount of money is determined by your insurance policy.
