Hospital bills can be overwhelming, particularly if your accident caused brain & spinal injuries or other serious injuries. Reimbursement for medical bills is an essential part of recovery in an injury case.
Serious injury to your neck and/or back may require years of medical attention and exhaustive physical therapy.
Recovery for lost wages is essential. In addition, you could be entitled to income continuation.
A personal injury case must be filed within a certain period of time as per PA law. A personal injury lawyer can explain what is called the “statute of limitations” in detail. Basically, the statute of limitations on personal injury cases in Pennsylvania is two years from the date of your injury.
After this time has passed, you may be barred forever from bringing a claim. Additionally, your insurance company might require you to provide a statement within 30 days of the accident. Our Pennsylvania personal injury attorney will make sure all necessary documentation for your case is filed in a timely fashion.

Generally, the claim must be filed by the plaintiff within 2 years. In the state’s statute of limitations, your personal injury suit must take court action within the timeframe for a trial in Pennsylvania. If your case fails after the two-year deadline, your personal injury lawsuit will probably be dismissed. There is a rare expectation for that period of time. It will normally start two years after minors turn 18.
The time it takes to settle a personal injury case varies depending on how complicated the case is. Generally, most cases take several months to over a year. If your case goes to trial, it may take several years to resolve.
If you are in an accident, you should seek medical attention immediately, even if you do not believe you have been injured. You should also contact the police and file a report. If possible, take pictures of the scene of the accident and get the contact information of any witnesses. When you are ready to speak with an attorney, we will be here to help you.
A contingency fee is a percentage of the amount recovered in a settlement or verdict. If no money is recovered, we do not get paid. Our contingency fee is never higher than 1 /3 of your settlement or verdict.
You should bring any information you have about the accident, including any police reports, insurance information, and medical records. You should also bring any correspondence you have had with the other party or their insurance company.
The value of your case will depend on many factors, including the severity of your injuries, the amount of medical bills you have incurred, the amount of wages you have lost, and the impact your injuries have had on your life.
Pennsylvania is a comparative negligence state. This means that if you are found to be partially at fault for your accident, your damages will be reduced by your percentage of fault. For example, if you are found to be 20% at fault for an accident that caused you $10,000 in damages, your recovery would be limited to $8,000.
