Can You Pursue a Civil Lawsuit After Suffering Injuries?

If you have been injured, and there was another party responsible for your accident, then you could pursue a personal injury case. In most situations, these cases center on negligence or international actions leading to your harm.

In these claims, there are several elements that must be established, including:

  • Duty of care: The defendant must have had a duty to refrain from dangerous acts that could put others at risk.
  • Breach of duty: As the plaintiff, you must show how the defendant breached their duty.
  • Causation: There must be a direct link between the defendant’s actions and your injuries.
  • Damages: There are damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, pain, and suffering, caused by the accident or incident.

When you work with a Haverford personal injury lawyer, they can help build a strong foundation for your claim. Contact Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan to learn more about your options.

Types of Personal Injury Claims

At Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan, our law firm has handled thousands of personal injury cases. Some of these examples include:

Car Accidents

Most personal injury claims center around car accidents. Delaware County had 4.2% of all traffic crashes in the Commonwealth, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT). Unfortunately, some drivers are not cautious on the road, and their behavior leads to accidents. Running a red light, reckless driving, and being distracted are the most common reasons for these incidents. You may file a personal injury claim if you fall into this category.

Truck Accidents

Another type of personal injury claim involves large commercial vehicles. Last year, we had over 7,522 incidents on the road, also per PennDOT. Like car accidents, negligence plays a role in truck accidents. Many times, multiple parties may be responsible for these actions, from the driver to the company that employed them. These cases are intricate and often require a skilled attorney to handle the claim.

Medical Malpractice

Unfortunately, medical malpractice happens too often in the healthcare industry. While these providers need to focus on healing, they harm the patient instead. Surgical errors, medication mistakes, and misdiagnosis are examples of these claims. In these situations, you need to prove that the healthcare provider deviated from the accepted standard of care.

Sexual Assault

While sexual assault is not an “accident,” it can lead to personal injury claims. These survivors may pursue civil lawsuits against the perpetrator. In these claims, victims can seek compensation for physical and emotional harm.

While these are just a few examples, we are available to handle all types of injury claims. If you would like to discuss your case, reach out to our Haverford personal injury attorney.

Can I Recover Compensation If I’m Hurt?

This answer will depend on the strength of your case. When pursuing a personal injury claim, you could be eligible for various types of compensation. These damages include:

Economic Damages

These injuries and losses had a direct financial impact on your life. You could get reimbursement for:

  • Medical expense compensation for past and future medical bills related to the injury, such as hospital stays, surgeries, medication, and rehabilitation costs.
  • Lost wages compensation provides reimbursement for income lost due to missed work during recovery and potential future earnings if the injury results in a long-term or permanent disability.

Non-Economic Damages

While these intangible losses do not have a specific dollar value, they can impact the victim’s quality of life. Pain and suffering compensate for the physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish experienced due to the injury.

In some cases, punitive damages may be awarded, but they are less common. Punitive damages are awarded when the defendant’s actions were intentional or grossly negligent.

Unfortunately, these cases can result in a person’s death. In these cases, surviving family members may seek compensation for funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and emotional suffering.

Keep in mind that there is no unlimited time to file a claim. The deadline starts to tick at the moment of your accident. In Pennsylvania, you have two years to take legal action under the statute of the limitations. Our lawyers at Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan will ensure your case adheres to all these time restrictions.
