Car accidents in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton: Why are there so many?

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton area is unfortunately no stranger to car accidents. With its heavy traffic, particularly in the city, there are numerous factors that can contribute to a Wilkes-Barre car accident. In addition, traffic along I-81, I-80, and the North Cross Valley Expressway can be quite dangerous.

From distracted driving and drowsy driving to issues with road maintenance or drunk driving, it can be difficult for drivers to stay safe throughout Wilkes-Barre and Scranton. These are just a few common causes of car accidents in our area. Additionally, inclement weather can make navigating these roads even more dangerous.

What court will hear my Wilkes-Barre/Scranton car accident case?

The Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas is the venue in which car accident lawsuits in Wilkes-Barre are heard. Cases from Scranton are heard in the Lackawanna County Court of Common Pleas. These courts hear both civil and criminal cases. As a result, they are responsible for handling any claims related to automobile accidents that occur within their jurisdiction.

Is Pennsylvania a “no-fault” state?

Pennsylvania is a “choice no-fault” state, meaning that policyholders have the option of choosing their own right to recover damages when purchasing auto insurance. This applies throughout the Commonwealth, including in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. As a result, individuals in car accidents will first seek out reimbursement for wages and medical expenses from their own insurance companies. This is true regardless of who is at fault.

In addition, Pennsylvania law dictates that drivers are given two options when purchasing auto insurance: Limited Tort and Full Tort.

  • Limited tort: This limits the ability to seek compensation for pain, suffering, or even emotional distress. Sadly this is true even if another driver was completely at fault. Importantly, some exceptions do exist.
  • Full tort: Following an accident, you may file a lawsuit against the at-fault party to receive compensation for emotional distress or pain and suffering.

For more information on the differences between Full Tort and Limited Tort auto insurance in Pennsylvania, check out our blog. Further, our Wilkes-Barre/Scranton car accident injury lawyers can explain your rights during a free consultation about your case.

Keep in mind that Limited Tort usually has lower premiums, which makes it the first choice for many. However, its restrictions can be tragic if you actually end up injured in a car accident. Therefore, ask your car insurance agent to provide a quote for Full Tort coverage. If within your budget, Full Tort is a much better option in the event you are in an auto accident in the future.
