Pennsylvania Personal Injury Law
What are your rights and responsibility under PA Law?
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in PA?
Pennsylvania statute of limitations for personal injury claims is 2 years from the date of the accident, with some exceptions. The statute may be extended, beginning when the plaintiff knew, or reasonably should have known, that an injury occurred and that it was caused by someone else’s actions. Minors are also given special consideration. For minors, the 2-year statute-of-limitations begins on the minor's 18th birthday and ends on the minor’s 20th birthday. In the case of a wrongful death lawsuit, the deceased person’s family has 2 years from the date of the person’s death to file suit. Although these are the limits to your right to file a personal injury lawsuit in Pennsylvania, speaking with an attorney early on is the best way to preserve a successful claim.
What To Do Immediately Following an Accident?
Documenting Your Injury
Document your injury through doctors’ reports and a personal diary following an accident. Doctors reports following an accident are critical to connect your injury to the accident. A diary will help you remember how you were feeling and how long it took you to recover from your pain and suffering when you are asked to recount the details of your accident and injury months later.
A picture tells a thousand words and can be very helpful in the successful outcome of your case. If possible, take pictures of the accident scene. Take close-up photos and distance photos showing the surrounding area. A successful slip and fall personal injury claim requires proving that the owner knew or should have known of the defective condition. Pictures can provide this type of evidence. In addition, pictures of the license plate, driver's license, insurance and registration cards are also helpful.
Obtaining the Police Report
Police reports are helpful in providing contact information and witness statements. You are entitled to receive one copy of the police report. Your attorney may also obtain your police report.
Hiring a Lawyer:
Most Personal Injury Lawyers offer free consultations; therefore, you have the opportunity to interview them at no cost to you. Choose your lawyer carefully. It can make a difference in the outcome of your claim. Below are our 8 important tips to look for when you interview a lawyer in your free consultation:
How Much Is My Case Worth?
Your case value is determined by your injury, your economic loss, and liability. Therefore, it usually takes time for the true value of a case to unfold. There are many unknown factors that must be evaluated over time. Correct diagnosis, length of treatment, medical bills, work loss, and future prognosis will all be factors in determining how much your case is worth. If you are found to be comparatively negligent, you may still recover. The value of your case, however, will be reduced by your percentage of comparative negligence.
