Frequently Asked Questions For Your Yardley Personal Injury Lawyer In Bucks County PA
These are some of the most common questions asked about Pennsylvania personal injury lawsuits which will help you navigate the process more effectively:
How long does a personal injury case last?
There is no one answer to how long a personal injury case can last, as it all depends on the case and how quickly acceptable compensation can be obtained. This process includes filing a complaint, filing interrogatories and answers, following up with experts regarding the case and damages, depositions of witnesses, experts, and parties involved, and negotiating settlement or taking the case to trial. From start to finish, the personal injury case can take anywhere from a couple of months to several years. Our goal is to work through the process as thoroughly and quickly as possible so you can move forward with your life.
Who is going to pay for my medical bills for an automobile accident?
Pennsylvania is a no-fault state when it comes to automobile accidents. This means you are responsible to cover your medical bills for an automobile accident through your own insurance. It is likely you will pay your own medical bills up front for almost any type of personal injury lawsuit. However, once you file your claim and win, you can be reimbursed for your medical bills as part of your settlement request.
Are experts needed to help prove my case?
In many personal injury lawsuits, experts are needed to help prove aspects of your case. For example, in an automobile accident experts can be used to help determine who was at fault and the amount of damages incurred as result of the accident. In the case of a slip and fall, an expert can be used to determine the details regarding the spot in which the slip and fall occurred and who is liable for the accident. These experts can help prove your claim and also provide a monetary value to various aspects such as loss of future earning and stress and emotional damages.
Is there a time limit to file a personal injury case in Pennsylvania?
Lawsuits related to personal injury claims are limited by a statute of limitations, which is the time limit allotted by the state of Pennsylvania to file your personal injury case with the courts. Once the case is filed, there are also deadlines by which to file additional documents and respond to filed documents. However, these timelines can include extensions, whereas the statute of limitations can only receive extensions under very specific exceptions upon approval of the courts. This means if you fail to file your case within the statute of limitations, it’s highly unlikely the court will hear your case.
