A: He should have insurance that should pay for your damages. Ask him to report the claim to his carrier.
The person 's insurance should cover. They are required to pay you the fair market value, towing, storage charges and resolve the case within 30 days.
If you have collision you can use that and they will go after the person. You and the others have claims for injuries, wage loss and medical expenses above your insurance. Each persons insurance initially pays their bills up to the maximum.
You and the two others should get medical treatment as Auto Insurance medical coverage has no deductible, no copay.
Like other members of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice I give free consultations, and because most of my clients work I also give evening consultations. Feel free to call and I can better address your questions. Likewise for the other two individuals.
