Common Types of Personal Injury Claims in Pennsylvania

No one starts their day expecting to end up in an emergency room or facing a lengthy recovery for an injury, but serious injuries happen to Pennsylvania residents every day, including personal injury cases in Norristown. Common types of personal injuries in court cases include the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Commercial truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Premises liability accidents
  • Workplace injuries
  • Dog bites
  • Medical malpractice
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Acts of violence
  • Wrongful death

When another party’s carelessness, recklessness, or wrongdoing causes an injury, they are liable for the victim’s damages. Compensation for damages in personal injury claims typically comes from the defendant’s insurance policy such as auto insurance in a car accident claim or property liability insurance after a slip-and-fall accident. If the insurance company wrongfully denies the claim or offers an unacceptably low settlement, the case proceeds to a lawsuit filed within the state’s statute of limitations.

What Is Pennsylvania’s Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims?

Like all states, Pennsylvania limits the amount of time an injury victim has to file a personal injury lawsuit for their damages. The state defines the statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits under Pennsylvania § 5524. The statute lists the following as falling under the two-year statute of limitations:

“ An action to recover damages for injuries to the person or for the death of an individual caused by the wrongful act or neglect or unlawful violence or negligence of another.”

Claims against the insurance company are typically filed much earlier, but if the case requires litigation in court, the injury victim (plaintiff) must file a lawsuit petition no more than two years after the date of the injury.

What to Do After a Personal Injury

If you’ve been suddenly seriously injured, you may be able to do little but wait in place for help to arrive, especially if you’re unconscious or your injuries are too serious to move safely. However, if you are able to take specific steps—mostly using your cell phone, which you can do without moving much or hand to someone else to use for you—you can protect yourself physically and financially. After an injury:

  • First, call 911 to request emergency services if you have a severe injury or the injury occurred from a car accident or act of violence
  • Then use your phone to take photos of the cause of the accident, whether it’s the damaged cars and accident scene after a crash, or a dangling cord in a store that caused a trip-and-fall accident
  • Take photos of any visible injuries
  • Add the contact information of anyone involved
  • Add the contact information of eyewitnesses (this can be critical in accidents with no surveillance video)
  • Ask for an accident or incident report from the police or property owner

Always go directly to the hospital after an accident so there’s clear, documented evidence that your injuries occurred in the accident. Ask for a thorough exam and tell the doctor about every symptom even if it’s mild. Ask for a detailed medical report and request a copy. Then, carefully follow your doctor’s orders and keep all receipts for medical bills and related expenses. Finally, call the personal injury attorneys in Norristown from Rosenbaum and Associates before you speak to insurance company representatives.

What Are The Types of Injuries You Can Sustain In An Accident?

Any type of injury can cause physical and emotional strain, and when someone else’s actions are responsible for the harm you suffer, the injury can feel even direr.

Personal injury victims can sustain many types of injuries during an accident, including the following:

  • Back and neck injuries: Injuries sustained to the neck and back.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: Brain injuries that can be sustained and potentially catastrophic and life-changing.
  • Damage to vision or hearing: Any damage that can happen to your hearing, and the way that you listen to others.
  • Spinal cord damage: Your spinal cord is responsible for helping your brain and body communicate with one another. Any damage to this area can cause permanent complications, including paralysis.
  • Broken bones and sprains: Many acts of negligence can lead to bone damage, from broken hips and legs to wrist and ankle sprains. These injuries often require surgeries to recover from.
  • Emotional trauma: Accidents can result in serious mental health consequences as well as physical ones. Post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, and anxiety are common after a serious injury.

Compensation for Norristown Personal Injury Victims

Under Pennsylvania law, you can collect compensation for any economic and non-economic harm you suffer as a result of someone else’s negligence. Economic damages involve your out of pocket losses, while non-economic damages concern the physical and emotional pain and suffering you endure.


Examples of these damages include the following:

  • All past and future medical expenses, including medication, surgeries, hospitalizations, and doctors’ visits.
  • Lost wages during your recovery period and loss of future earnings, if your injury prevents you from returning to work.
  • Property damage you sustained during the accident, such as vehicle repairs.
  • Physical pain and suffering, such as chronic pain, disability, disfigurement, and scarring.
  • Emotional pain and suffering, such as mental anguish, depression, anxiety, loss of quality of life, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

You may also qualify for punitive damages if the at-fault party engaged in willful, malicious misconduct or careless conduct with a wanton disregard for others.
