Table of Contents

    When there is an accident there are a number of things that can happen. From injuries and death to working with insurance companies, accident victims in Cameron County are up against a whole team of insurance companies and trucking industry experts all of whom are trying to protect themselves from liability. Some trucking companies go to great lengths to protect themselves and even file lawsuits against innocent drivers in an attempt to scare them and force them to settle for less than they are entitled to.

    Our attorneys are not intimidated by these tactics. We have used our legal knowledge and creative approaches to help innocent drivers and victims of truck accidents receive the compensation and benefits they are entitled to.

    Limited Tort in Pennsylvania

    Car insurance is complicated and tricky, and that is why many insurance companies advertise how easy they are to work with. However, when you are buying car insurance you may or not be aware of the different types of liability coverage’s. In Pennsylvania, drivers have two options for automobile coverage, a limited tort option and a full tort option.  Depending on what type of coverage that a driver has will determine how much a person may be entitled to recover in the event of an accident.

    The full tort policy allows an injured person to pursue compensation for all their losses such as medical bills, injuries, lost wages, and any other natural consequence of their accident. Under a full tort option, there is no imposed limit on the amount that a person may be entitled to recover.

    A limited tort option, on the other hand, places a limit on the amount that a person can recover for certain economic damages. Under this system a person may be able to recover for their lost expenses to their car, for medical bills, and for lost wages. However, under the limited tort system a person generally cannot recover for their pain and suffering.  However, in the event that your injury is deemed “serious” then you may be able to recover for such things as pain and suffering.

    Why Hiring an Attorney can help after an Accident in Cameron County

    If you were driving down the road and were hit by a large commercial vehicle then you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Some of the most common large vehicles that are involved in accidents include:

    • Big rig
    • Tractor-trailer
    • Flatbed truck
    • Cement mixers
    • Dump trucks
    • Parcel delivery trucks
    • Commercial vans

    When there is an accident involving any one of these vehicles then there are some important steps that you need to take. It is important to identify witnesses, interview police officers and accident investigators, take pictures, document any interactions between yourself and the other drivers. All of these steps are important to take because when there is any accident on the road you have to establish liability and who was at fault. If you do not establish that the other driver was negligent or at fault then you will not be able to recover your damages such as:

    • Medical bills
    • Future medical treatments
    • Lost wages
    • Decreased earning potential
    • Pain and suffering

    Large trucks often are sent out by large companies who employ lawyers and who have insurance companies with lawyers all of whom are trying to pass their liability off and to keep their costs down. That is why hiring a personal injury and truck accident lawyer is so crucial to you recovering for your injuries.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.

Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
