Can You Sue For Personal Injury?

Victims of personal injuries are often left with many questions, though perhaps none more critical than "Can someone be held liable for my injuries?"

It's completely normal to consider taking legal action, such as filing a lawsuit after suffering a personal injury. It is possible and viable to file a lawsuit in many cases and seek compensation for damages you've suffered.

However, the process can be much more complex than simply tallying up your medical bills and asking the corresponding insurance company to reimburse you. This is because the defending party will likely be resistant to paying out benefits on your claim, whether it be a business, individual, or insurance company. In fact, if they are too quick to suggest settling, it is quite possible that you are not getting the maximum compensation you deserve. 

Is It Worth Hiring A Personal Injury Attorney?

There is no legal requirement for the victim of personal injuries to hire a personal injury attorney. Yet, victims hoping to get the maximum compensation value for their personal injury claim are highly encouraged to seek legal counsel.

This is because the insurance company of the person or company responsible for your injuries may not want to be held liable. Naturally, they will fight to limit the amount of compensation you receive. Our Pennsylvania personal injury attorneys will help you navigate through the legal process, including collecting evidence and handling all paperwork to ensure your shot at winning the maximum dollar amount for your lawsuit.

How Much Is The Average Personal Injury Settlement?

There is no definitive "average" payout for personal injury cases. Each case is different, namely due to the variety of factors specific to each one.

Perhaps the most crucial factor is whether you hire a personal injury attorney to represent you or not. Reports have shown that lawyers consistently achieve higher payouts for injury victims, if for no other reason than because the defendant sees that, by hiring a legal professional to represent their interests, victims will not settle for less than they deserve.

What Is Negligence?

To file a personal injury lawsuit against another person or company, you must prove that they were negligent. Negligence means that the party responsible for your injuries owed a duty of care towards you and that they breached this duty by acting unreasonably.

For example, if you are injured in a car accident because another driver was speeding and failed to maintain proper control of their vehicle, resulting in a crash, they have likely been negligent.

Proving Negligence

Proving that someone was negligent is crucial in a personal injury case, but it is only one aspect of your case. To prove negligence, your case must establish the following:

  1. Duty of Care – The person or company responsible for causing your injuries owed you a duty of care, meaning that they should have acted adequately given the circumstances and with regard for your safety.
  2. Breach of Duty – The person or company responsible for your injuries breached their duty of care.
  3. Causation – The breach of duty must be a direct cause of your injuries. 
  4. Damages – To receive compensation for your personal injury claim, you must show evidence of losses related to the accident. This can include medical bills, lost wages due to injury, and pain and suffering experienced due to the accident.

What Kind Of Cases Do Personal Injury Lawyers Handle?

Depending on the circumstances, a Pennsylvania personal injury lawyer may be able to represent you for any number of cases, For instance:

Car Accidents

If you were injured as the result of a car accident because another driver was negligent, then your Pennsylvania lawyer may be able to help recover compensation for your medical bills and lost wages. The amount of compensation will likely depend on the amount of fault attributed to you in the accident.

Slip And Fall

If you slipped and fell due to a broken floor tile or other dangerous condition at a store, then you may have been the victim of premises liability. Personal injury lawyers in Pennsylvania can file suit against the owner or manager of the business in these circumstances.

Medical Malpractice

If you suffered a severe injury in Pennsylvania due to the negligence or actions of a doctor, nurse, or other medical workers, then it may be possible to recover compensation. Your Pennsylvania personal injury lawyer will use various legal theories to support your claim.

Construction Site Accidents

If you suffered grave injuries on a construction site, your personal injury lawyer might be able to file suit against the company in charge of safety standards and construction practices. Otherwise, a workers' comp claim may be more appropriate for such cases.

Workers Comp

In Pennsylvania, injuries sustained by workers while at work may be eligible for workers' compensation. If you suffer a serious injury at work, it is essential that you notify your employer in a timely manner. After giving notice, seek the help of a workers' comp attorney to learn more about filing a workers comp claim.

Dog Bite or Attack

Dog bites can cause serious injuries requiring substantial medical care and hospitalization. In most cases, if the victim of the dog bite can prove the animal's owner failed to ensure the pet was well-trained and supervised, they may be able to recover compensation for damages.
