Pennsylvania Statute of Limitations
Pennsylvania is a “choice” no fault car insurance state. This means that if you choose no-fault coverage for your car insurance, then after an accident you will need to file a claim under the personal injury protection coverage to receive any compensation. It has a “statutes of limitations” that set a certain time line for the right of someone to bring a lawsuit. A civil lawsuit must be filed within the two years from the date of the accident if anyone was injured and the same timeline is for if there was vehicle damage. You can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who caused the accident within two years. That time starts at the time of the victim’s death, not the time of the accident. The state follows a “modified comparative fault”, which is for a situation that more than one person is partially, or completely at fault for the accident. Since you can recover against any party that was more at-fault than you for personal injury lawsuit, your damages will be reduced by a percentage that goes along with your share of liability.
