Recoverable Damages in Pennsylvania
As an accident victim, you have likely suffered more losses than the injuries you sustained, especially if they were particularly severe. The damages you recover can cover these losses, including those that are a little challenging to attach an economic value to.
If you suffered an injury in a car accident, you may be facing expensive hospital bills, disability-related costs, lost wages, and more. With compensation, you can help cover all of these expenses.
Damages may include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages and reduced earning capacity
- Property damage
- New equipment or devices you may need as a result of your injuries
- Emotional anguish, including anxiety and depression
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Permanent disfigurement
- Loss of companionship
Additionally, Pennsylvania also awards punitive damages in certain situations and is designed to punish the defendant. For punitive damages to be awarded, the defendant must have acted with a reckless disregard for the safety of others.
Why it is Important to Act Fast
Every state has a statute of limitations, during which you must file your personal injury lawsuit. If the time runs out on the statute of limitations, it is unlikely your case will be heard. In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations is 2 years, starting on the date of the injury. Therefore, it is important to act quickly after a car accident and reach out to a member of our team as soon as possible. You do not want to miss out on your chance to recover compensation for your injuries.
