Do I have a potential injury claim in Pennsylvania, if I was hit in a parked car by another vehicle? The car is not mine, I was waiting in the car with a friend?

We wanted to share the answer to this question and answer on our blog as it may help our readers...

You have a potential claim for compensation, if you were injured. If you own a motor vehicle, your auto insurance policy will pay for your medical treatment up to the limit of your benefits. If you don't own a car and don't live with a spouse or relative who does own a car, then your medical benefits will be paid by the insurance carrier for the vehicle you were occupying.

Compensation for your pain and suffering is recoverable from the at fault vehicle, assuming that they are adequately insured. If they are not insured or do not have enough insurance to compensate the individuals they injured, then the policy on the car you were occupying and any policy covering you or a resident relative has to be considered.

While this question appears simple on its face, the source of recovery in a personal injury case is often complicated. That is why you should always consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer. Consultations at Naftulin and Shick are free.
