As most people are aware, Pennsylvania law requires all drivers to carry a minimum of $15,000 in liability insurance. However, the unfortunate reality is that there are many drivers on the road who are not carrying any insurance at all. If you are injured by an uninsured driver, the Pennsylvania Assigned Claims Plan may provide an avenue for recovery.
The Pennsylvania Assigned Claims Plan provides up to $15,000 of recovery, including $5,000 in medical benefits and up to $10,000 in additional damages. In order to qualify for this recovery, you must meet several complex criteria indicating that no other avenues of recovery are available. Most importantly, you must show that you do not own a car and that neither you, nor any relatives residing in your household, have any auto insurance that may provide you with a potential avenue for recovery.
The most common situations where individuals qualify for the Assigned Claims Plan involve pedestrians or passengers who do not own cars and are injured by uninsured drivers.
