Many types of car accidents happen in Pennsylvania, though the most common are:
Most accidents result from human error, such as running a stop sign or red light or failing to yield. Drunk driving, distracted driving and speeding are common reasons drivers make grave mistakes.
Car accidents can have lasting consequences. The immediate aftermath may involve serious injuries and vehicle loss, while long-term effects may include an inability to work or enjoy life. You deserve compensation for all your losses related to the accident — whether you discover them today or tomorrow.
The term “damages” describes the compensation you may be entitled to as a car accident victim. If you suffered property loss or injuries due to the other driver’s negligence or misconduct, you may be able to recover economic and non-economic damages, such as:
Recovery depends on your car insurance type. Full tort insurance lets you sue for economic and non-economic damages, while limited tort insurance allows recovery of economic damages only.
An accident attorney will work hard to help you recover fair compensation for anything you’ve lost, including accident-related losses you may experience later. Note that because Pennsylvania is a “modified comparative fault” state, if you are found partially responsible for the accident, your recovery is reduced by percentage of fault.
You may have a personal injury case if you can prove the other driver caused the accident due to negligence. To prove negligence, the following factors must be present:
You may also recover damages if a driver intentionally injures you with a vehicle or recklessly endangers you.
Under Pennsylvania law, you have two years to seek compensation for accident-related losses. This time limit is the statute of limitations.
Generally, the two-year clock starts after the accident’s date. The sooner you file a lawsuit, the better. You’ll want to act promptly to gather crucial evidence to build your case.
