What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
Any number of cases may qualify as “personal injury” claims. Sometimes, they involve truck, car, or motorcycle accidents. In other cases, a pedestrian or bicyclist is hit by a car that was driving negligently. In still other cases, a slip and fall on a negligently maintained premises or a defective product causes an injury. Additional examples of personal injury claims include wrongful death claims, nursing home abuse claims, recreational accidents, and more. The common thread among all of them is that the injury to the victim was caused by the negligence of another person – a person who did not exercise the reasonable care that they should have used in the situation that led to the injury.
What Damages Can I Claim as a Result of My Injury?
As a result of your injury, you may have experienced many negative consequences – many of them physical, of course, but many of them also financial in nature. Following an injury, it is not at all unusual for expenses to begin to accumulate quickly. Medical bills, lost wages as a result of being unable to work, and other expenses can easily make you feel overwhelmed and uncertain of what to do. In a personal injury claim, you can seek compensation for those expenses: for past, current, and future medical expenses, for loss of wages, and for loss of anticipated future earnings. Other damages may be more difficult to quantify, but are just as important. These may include damages for emotional distress, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and other similar types of damages.
When Should I File My Claim?
Most personal injury claims have a defined statute of limitations, which in Pennsylvania is two years from the date of the injury for most claims. This means that you must bring the claim within the defined amount of time or risk losing the chance to bring the claim at all. To avoid having that happen to you, it is critical to contact a knowledgeable and experienced Pittsburgh personal injury lawyer who can help you begin the process of seeking the compensation that you rightfully deserve.
