About Your Personal Injury
Harrisburg Attorneys Serving All of Pennsylvania
Personal injury law (sometimes called "tort law") involves civil disputes which arise from instances in which someone is injured physically or emotionally. As a victim of personal injury, you are eligible to pursue damages from the party responsible for any harm you have experienced. Damages or compensation are the terms commonly used to refer to the money or other reimbursements that are owed to the victim in proportion to their injuries and losses.
The most common types of personal injury claims involve the following:
- Defective Product Accidents
- Medical Negligence
- Slip & Fall Accidents
- Traffic Accidents
- Work Accidents
In personal injury cases, it's important to seek legal advice quickly, because there are time limits involved in bringing a claim. Generally speaking, in Pennsylvania, adults have up to two years from the time of the incident to seek legal action under what is known as the statute of limitations. In some cases, the law allows more time for child injury victims. Failure to file your personal injury claim in a timely manner may result in your claim being forever barred.
