Warrington, Pennsylvania Car Insurance Complications
Every driver on the roadways in Pennsylvania is required to maintain a certain level of car insurance that kicks in to pay expenses following a car accident, including:
- $5,000 in medical benefits that cover your medical expenses and the medical expenses of other covered parties, regardless of who caused the car accident,
- $15,000 in bodily injury liability per injured person, which applies when you caused the accident,
- $30,000 in total bodily injury liability per car accident when you were at fault,
- $5,000 in property damage coverage if you caused the accident.
Pennsylvania is technically a no-fault state, which means that you look to your own car insurance policy first even if you did not cause the car accident. Although this may initially seem straightforward, Pennsylvania law also allows car owners to choose between “full tort” or “limited tort” car insurance, which can add complications into the mix following a car accident, as follows:
- Limited tort. Limited tort insurance is the less expensive option for car owners, and essentially limits your right to compensation after an accident. Under a limited tort policy, compensation for non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, may not be available unless the car accident caused a “serious injury”.
- Full tort. Under full tort insurance coverage, both economic and non-economic damages may be available from the negligent driver, even if the injuries sustained are not “serious”.
Although the definition of “serious injury” continues to be interpreted by the Pennsylvania courts, a serious injury generally includes:
- Serious impairment of bodily function,
- Disfigurement that is permanent, or
As with most rules, there are exceptions to the limitations imposed under limited tort insurance policies. Our Warrington car accident lawyers can help you understand these exceptions—for example, if the driver who caused the accident was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, a limited tort policy can be converted into a full tort policy.

Although it may seem advantageous to resolve your case and recover compensation as quickly as possible, it is important to remember that this is also the insurance adjuster’s goal—with the added goal of resolving your case for as little as possible. Our car accident lawyers have the experience necessary to resolve your case quickly, but also take into account issues that might not be apparent immediately after the accident. For example, in some cases, your injury may take time to manifest itself, or the accident may have exacerbated an existing condition that you might fail to take into account when speaking to the insurance company right after the accident.
If you sustained serious injuries in the car accident, your friend’s insurance company may be required to pay your unreimbursed medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and any other damages relating to the accident. Although your friend’s insurance rates may increase, it is important to remember that they would likely increase even if you did not pursue a claim for damages if your friend was the at-fault driver.
