What You Need to Know About PA Limited Tort When the Car Rather Than the Driver Causes a Crash
While most Pennsylvania car accidents are caused by negligence, a driver’s failure to act with reasonable care is not always the reason for accidents and resulting injuries. Sometimes serious car crashes are caused by a defect in the design, manufacturing, repair or maintenance of a car.
If you are covered by Pennsylvania Limited Tort Insurance then this is significant for you.
You, together with your Pennsylvania limited tort lawyer, will need to investigate the cause of your crash. If you discover that the cause of your accident injuries was not the other driver’s negligence but rather a problem in the design, manufacturing, repair or maintenance of the other driver’s vehicle then you may be able to recover for pain and suffering in addition to your economic damages.
How a Pennsylvania Limited Tort Attorney May Help You After a Crash
It can be difficult to determine the cause of a crash without the help of an experienced attorney. Interrogatories, depositions, requests for the production of documents and other formal legal discovery processes are often required to get the information that you need to determine the true cause of your accident. It is only with that knowledge that you can effectively argue that your recovery is covered by a Pennsylvania limited tort exception for accidents that occur because of defect in the design, manufacturing, repair or maintenance of a car.
