Personal Injury Laws in Pennsylvania

When you are injured in an accident, you may be wondering how you are going to recover compensation to pay for your medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and even pain and suffering. From auto accidents to medical malpractice, personal injury law covers a variety of accidents.

To prove liability in most personal injury cases, you must establish fault. However, Pennsylvania personal injury law recognizes several injury claims and each of them has its own elements the plaintiff must prove to be compensated for their losses.

The following are the different types of liability for injuries in Pennsylvania:

  • Negligence – A person or a business owner has a duty of care. For example, a driver has a duty to follow the traffic laws and drive in a reasonably safe manner, while a business owner has a duty to ensure that their property is safe for customers and visitors. If a person or business owner breaches their duty by acting in a negligent, reckless, or careless manner and such behavior causes someone else’s injury, the negligent party (plaintiff) could be held liable for causing the accident and compensate the injured party for their losses.

  • Medical malpractice – To hold a healthcare provider liable for medical malpractice in Pennsylvania, the injured party must prove the standard of care in the medical community for which the defendant’s treatment should be measured, the defendant deviated from that standard, the defendant’s breach of the required standard of care proximately caused or contributed to causing the plaintiff’s injury, the plaintiff suffered damages as a direct result of the injury.

  • Strict liability – Strict liability allows a plaintiff to sue a person or entity without proving fault or negligence. If a person suffered an injury caused by a dangerous or defective product, he/she can file a products liability claim against the manufacturer to recover damages. Strict liability also applies to injuries from dog bites, commonly known as Pennsylvania’s “one bite” rule.

When it comes to negligence, it is possible that the at-fault party may partially blame the injured party for the incident that led to their injuries. In such cases, Pennsylvania adheres to a “modified comparative negligence” law,” which means that the amount of damages an injured party is entitled to can be reduced by their share of negligence.

For example, if a jury awards you with $100,000 at a civil trial, but also decides you are 25 percent at fault for the accident, your compensation will be reduced by $25,000, so you get to only keep $75,000 of the total award. But if you are found to be more than 50 percent responsible for the accident, you cannot collect anything from the other at-fault parties.

For more personal injury claims, Pennsylvania’s statute of limitations gives an injured party two years to file a lawsuit in civil court.

Damages We Can Fight to Retrieve

Whether the case is pitted against your employer or another individual, we can fight for repayment for a variety of impacted areas in your life. We will fight to recover:

  • Costs for medical care: We can fight to recover costs associated with the immediate and ongoing care you require as a result of the accident, such as emergency room stays or physical therapy fees.
  • Funeral expenses: If your loved one died as a result of the accident, you may be eligible to redeem compensation for memorial and burial costs.
  • Loss of consortium: Your injury may significantly impair your relationship with those closest to you. If this is the case, we can seek repayment.
  • Loss of enjoyment: Your accident may make the activities you once loved most impossible or impractical. Losing your ability to practice favorite hobbies is a valid reason to seek repayment.
  • Loss of income: If you were unable to work as a result of your injury, we can help you fight to reclaim your lost salary.
  • Pain and suffering: Your injuries may last for months or years following the accident. We can make the case to call for a monetary repayment for what you lost in comfort, abilities, and lifestyle.
  • Property damage: Too often, it isn’t just you that bears the brunt of the injury. If your property was lost or damage in the incident, we can work to retrieve the value of it.

During your case review, we will evaluate the extent of damages and strategize a plan to approach and retrieve compensation for them.
