You may be thinking, “I’m not the suing type,” or, “There are too many lawsuits already.” Bringing an insurance claim does not mean that you’re filing a lawsuit. The vast majority of our cases settle favorably without filing a lawsuit. Nonetheless, you may hesitate to bring an insurance claim for fear of being seen as being the suing type. Rest assured, the people we represent are just like you: honest, good citizens, who wish that the accident had never happened, and just want to be treated fairly by the adverse insurance company.
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, as well as every other state in the Union, requires that drivers carry insurance. It’s the law. And the reason for that law is simple: so that there is a pool of money available to compensate people who suffer damages as a result of another driver’s negligence. If you’ve been injured in a car accident and you choose not to bring a claim, you’re not helping the other driver, and you’re certainly not helping yourself. You’re merely helping the insurance companies. You’re essentially saying to them, “I know that we’re all required to buy insurance from you, and that money is there to compensate me for my injuries, but I’d really rather that you keep it for your profits, instead of using it for its intended purposes—fair compensation.”
