Protecting Your Interests
Within 24-48 hours of being involved in an accident, the insurance company may send an adjuster to speak with you and obtain a recorded statement. Although they will assure you this will in not way negatively affect you, these statements are often used to devalue an insurance claim. Despite what the claim, insurance companies are not looking out for you best interests.

An injury victim should be aware that there are strict deadline requirements in most states, necessitating quick action after an accident in order to state a claim for damages. Generally, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey have a Statute of Limitations that requires a personal injury case to be filed within two years of an accident. Some states have more restrictive laws in place in addition to this general time frame. For instance, the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law sets forth stricter filing deadlines in relation to motor vehicle accidents.
