Perhaps nothing can derail your life faster than an unexpected personal injury. Injuries can crop up faster than you can blink your eye, changing your life in some of the most profound ways imaginable and leaving you dealing with severe pain, emotional trauma, escalating medical bills, and no income for the foreseeable future.

Our firm has helped thousands of clients recoup damages via personal injury claims that hold the parties responsible for your injury accountable.
Negligence Main Cause of Personal Injury
Time and time again, when personal injury cases arise, it is usually the negligence of someone else—whether that’s an individual or a company or even a government entity—is almost always to blame. The careless, reckless acts of someone else or someone’s bad judgement can lead to a lifetime of pain for personal injury accident victims. Perhaps you were in the wrong place at the wrong time, and you felt the brunt of that negligence. Now you are experiencing the consequences, living with your injuries, pain and mounting costs.
Personal injuries often arise due to:
- Car wrecks
- Big truck accidents
- Slip and fall or trip and fall accidents
- Dog bite attacks
- Defective products
- Medical malpractice
- Motorcycle wrecks
- Bicycle accidents
- Boating accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Train accidents
- Workplace accidents
Compensation for Personal Injury Claims
Depending on your particular case, you may be eligible for a range of damages in your case. Usually, claims include reimbursement for medical bills, lost wages, and property damage. In some instances, personal injury claims result in payment to the victim for pain and suffering, either physical, mental, or both. Additionally, if your injuries were significant enough to cause a permanent disability, the value of any award received will increase significantly. The same is true of any lifetime scarring or disfigurement caused by the accident, including loss of digits or limbs.
Time is Limited to File Your Personal Injury Claim
Because Pennsylvania sets a strict time limit of two years on filing claims related to personal injuries, time truly is of the essence following your accident. The clock starts ticking on this statute of limitations on the day that you incur your injury and stops ticking exactly two years later. If no claim is brought during that time, no matter the seriousness of your injuries, you are forever barred from filing your personal injury claim in most instances. Don’t risk it; get representation right away and get the ball rolling on your claim.
