Are there parties other than the at-fault driver against whom I can take legal action in a Pennsylvania auto accident case?

Transcript:

There are. If you have uninsured/underinsured coverage, you can bring a claim against your own policy.

What this means is, if you have uninsured/underinsured coverage, and the driver that hits you does not enough insurance, or has no insurance, you can bring a claim against your own policy.

Also, you can bring a claim against the owner of the car if that owner knew that the driver should not have been driving the car. Common example, if the driver asks the owner for the keys, and the owner knows he’s intoxicated, and gives him over the keys, that driver, or rather that owner, is himself negligent for what’s called in theory of negligent entrustment.

There’s at least two additional parties that we look at in every case in addition to the at-fault driver.
