Pennsylvania is a choice no-fault car insurance state. Under this system, your car insurance will cover medical treatment expenses regardless of who was at fault. Those who purchase no-fault coverage when buying car insurance will be able to file a claim under their personal injury protection (PIP) coverage.

Moreover, when purchasing car insurance in Pennsylvania, drivers have to choose between “limited tort” and “full tort” coverage. Limited tort insurance limits the ability to sue for pain and suffering in case of a car accident. Full tort means that individuals can sue for all damages in an even of a car accident.

Attorney Parini impressed me as soon as I met him.

I knew right off the bat that this attorney was the person I wanted to represent me. His very intimidating posture, led me to believe he could handle anything that would come his way. The man is a winner.

He handled everything so I didn’t have to worry and could just focus on my recovery and get back to work. He was always available and quick to return my phone calls and emails with the answers I needed. My case was handled quickly and with no added stress to me or my family. I would recommend Matt to anyone in need of assistance after a motor vehicle accident.
