Personal Injury FAQ
Under Pennsylvania law, personal injury victims are entitled to compensation for economic losses such as out-of-pocket medical expenses and present and future lost wages. An injured person may also recover compensation for noneconomic losses including pain and suffering, loss of life’s pleasures, disfigurement and humiliation. In cases where the responsible party’s conduct was willful or reckless, punitive damages may also be available, although this is rare.
Fortunately, in Pennsylvania an injured person may still receive some compensation, even if partially at fault. If your injury would have occurred regardless of your conduct, you may be entitled to some compensation with the amount proportionally reduced to reflect your percentage share of fault in the accident. A jury usually assigns percentage shares of fault should the case go to trial.
In Pennsylvania, Personal Injury negligence lawsuits should be filed within two years. This is subject to several exceptions and qualifiers, including a shortened limitation period for suits against government entities, more time for minor plaintiffs and special rules when injuries are not immediately apparent. To be safe, you should contact Long & Long as soon as you can after an accident.
