Do You Have a Pursuable Personal Injury Case?

If you have suffered harm due to an accident or injury, and someone else was responsible for those actions, you could have a valid personal injury claim.

In many cases, you probably have been injured by a person’s negligence or intentional misconduct. With that, you could be entitled to compensation for your losses. At Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan, we have handled thousands of cases throughout Lower Merion Township, including:

  • Car accidents: These are the most frequent personal injury cases stemming from distracted driving, speeding, or driving under the influence.
  • Truck accidents: Due to their size and weight, crashes involving large commercial trucks often result in severe injuries.
  • Medical malpractice: This occurs when healthcare professionals fail to meet the standard of care, resulting in harm to patients. These cases include surgical errors, misdiagnoses, birth injuries, or medication errors.
  • Sexual assault: These cases involve intentional harm caused by sexual violence. Victims can seek justice through criminal and civil legal proceedings.

If you believe you may want a valid personal injury claim, contact a Lower Merion Township personal injury lawyer today.

What Type of Compensation Is Available in Injury Cases Like Yours?

In these cases, you may be able to recover compensation for your damages. Some available compensation may include:

  • Medical expenses: You can seek compensation for any medical treatment, rehabilitation, and care related to the incident. In many cases, this can include hospital bills, doctor visits, surgeries, medications, physical therapy, and any other rehabilitation services.
  • Lost wages: If you need to miss work due to the injury, you can get compensation for the lost income. Often, the damages would cover other issues, such as lost future earnings.
  • Pain and suffering: These awards address the emotional and physical toll of the accident. Distress, discomfort, and mental anguish from the accident are awarded under pain and suffering.
  • Emotional distress: Anxiety, depression, and other emotional trauma caused by the incident can be commissioned in monetary form.

Not all awards are relevant to your case. If you would like to learn more about the compensation you could recover, contact a lawyer at Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan today.

Is There a Time Limit to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Pennsylvania?

When it comes to filing a Pennsylvania personal injury lawsuit, timing is vital to your case. Under 42 Pa. Cons. Stat. § 5524(2), you have two years from the date of the incident to file a personal injury claim. This means the clock starts ticking immediately after the accident or injury.

While the general rule is a two-year limit, a few exceptions exist. For example, if you discover your injury later, like in medical malpractice cases, the two-year period may begin from the date of discovery rather than the incident. Also, if the injured party is a minor, the statute of limitations may be extended.

No matter the circumstances, you do not have unlimited time to start your claim. For that reason, you need to enlist the help of an experienced Lower Merion Township personal injury lawyer for your case. The clock is running to take legal action.

Do I Have Legal Options If I Am At Fault?

In Pennsylvania, the legal system follows a modified comparative negligence approach per Pennsylvania General Assembly Statute §7102. That means an injured party can still seek compensation even if they were partially at fault for the accident.

However, there’s a threshold: The injured party must be less than 51% at fault for the accident and resulting injuries. In cases where you are 51% or more at fault, you would be prevented from seeking recovery in Pennsylvania.

While you could guess your level of fault and the possible compensation, consulting with a skilled Lower Merion Township personal injury attorney can help to clarify your options. With this assistance, you can determine if a lawsuit is the right avenue for your case.
