Types of Compensation
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by negligence, carelessness, or recklessness, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party in civil court in order to recover financial compensation for your losses.
However, it is not uncommon for the at-fault party to argue that the victim either partially or completely contributed to the underlying accident that resulted in their injuries. When it comes to shared fault, Pennsylvania adheres to a “modified comparative negligence” statute, which means your total compensation will be reduced by your percentage of liability.
For example, if the jury awards you with $50,000, but also determines you were 15 percent at fault, you will only get to receive $42,500 (or 85 percent of your total award). However, if you were more than 50 percent at fault for your injuries, then you cannot recover any compensation from other liable parties.
Common types of economic and noneconomic damages you can recover include:
- Medical and rehabilitation expenses
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
What is the Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Cases in Pennsylvania?
A statute of limitations is law that states a time limit for how long you have to file you claim in court. In the state of Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations on personal injury cases is two years from the date of injury. If you do not file within this two year time limit than you lose your right to. That is why you need to contact the personal injury attorneys from Solomon, Berschler, Campbell & Thomas, P.C. right away to get started.
