How a Scranton Personal Injury Attorney Can Benefit Your Case

By hiring a Scranton personal injury lawyer, you can significantly improve your chances of success and obtaining fair compensation. They have the resources, knowledge, and experience to:

  • Accurately assess the value of your claim.
  • Gather evidence to identify liable parties and establish fault.
  • Handle all communication with insurance companies on your behalf.
  • Ensure you receive appropriate medical care.
  • Compile and organize medical records and bills to substantiate your injuries.

Insurance companies will often use tactics to downplay your injuries and shift blame onto you. It is imperative to retain legal representation who will protect your rights when your well-being and future are in jeopardy. 

Pennsylvania Personal Injury Laws

The following Pennsylvania personal injury laws govern the legal rights of individuals who have suffered harm due to the negligence or intentional actions of others within the state. 

No-Fault Car Insurance

Pennsylvania is a no-fault car insurance state, meaning that after a car accident, individuals with “limited tort” coverage must first turn to their own insurance company to cover medical expenses and other losses, regardless of who was at fault. However, individuals may step outside the no-fault system if their injuries qualify as “serious” or they opted out and purchased “full tort” coverage. 

Under Pennsylvania Statutes Title 75, Section 1705, insureds must receive the following notice:

“A.  “Limited Tort” Option–The laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania give you the right to choose a form of insurance that limits your right and the right of members of your household to seek financial compensation for injuries caused by other drivers. Under this form of insurance, you and other household members covered under this policy may seek recovery for all medical and other out-of-pocket expenses, but not for pain and suffering or other nonmonetary damages unless the injuries suffered fall within the definition of “serious injury” as set forth in the policy or unless one of several other exceptions noted in the policy applies…

A. “Full Tort” Option–The laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania also give you the right to choose a form of insurance under which you maintain an unrestricted right for you and the members of your household to seek financial compensation for injuries caused by other drivers…”

Does Philadelphia Follow The Rule of Comparative Negligence?

Pennsylvania follows the rule of comparative negligence, allowing injured parties to recover damages even if they were partially at fault for the accident. However, the amount of compensation awarded is reduced by the percentage of fault attributed to the injured party. If the injured party’s fault exceeds 50%, they may be barred from recovering any damages.

Pennsylvania General Assembly Title 42 § 7102

“…the fact that the plaintiff may have been guilty of contributory negligence shall not bar a recovery by the plaintiff or his legal representative where such negligence was not greater than the causal negligence of the defendant or defendants against whom recovery is sought, but any damages sustained by the plaintiff shall be diminished in proportion to the amount of negligence attributed to the plaintiff.”

What Is Statute of Limitations In Pennsylvania?

Pennsylvania imposes a statute of limitations, which sets a time limit for filing a personal injury lawsuit. 

Pennsylvania General Assembly Title 42 § 5524

“The following actions and proceedings must be commenced within two years:

…(2) 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.”

In most cases, individuals have two years from the date of the injury to initiate legal action. Failing to file within this timeframe may result in the forfeiture of the right to seek compensation.

Dog Bite Liability

When a dog causes injury to someone, the owner is held accountable for covering all expenses related to the victim’s medical treatment. This falls under the category of a “strict liability” rule, where the victim can pursue a lawsuit successfully without the burden of proving any wrongdoing on the owner’s part. 

3 Pa. Stat. § 459-502-A


  •  …Any cost to the victim for medical treatment resulting from an attacking or biting dog must be paid fully by the owner or keeper of the dog…”

Victims must demonstrate that the owner acted negligently to obtain compensation for other losses such as pain and suffering or lost income. 

Do I Have A Personal Injury Claim?

Rosenbaum & Associates has experience in settling claims for clients in a variety of legal situations. We have experience in virtually every area of personal injury law. The following are examples of the kinds of cases we handle:

  • Medical malpractice – Your health care providers are obligated to exercise reasonable care in the delivery of health services. If they don’t, and you’re injured as a result, you may be eligible for compensation.
  • Product liability – Those involved in the manufacture, distribution, and retail of the products you use must employ reasonable care in assembling and selling them.
  • Premises liability – Also known as “slip and fall” liability, these kinds of cases cover injuries that occur on another’s property.
  • Workplace injuries – Employers are mandated to provide workers’ compensation coverage, but you may have legal recourse beyond the initial claim.
  • Exposure to toxic substances – Noxious elements in the air, soil, or water may render you or your loved ones sick, which necessitates the help of a personal injury attorney.
  • Permanently disabling injuries – When a catastrophic injury renders you or a loved one unable to maintain your previous quality of life, we can help you get a settlement to pay for your injury’s long-term effects.
  • Nursing home abuse – Our nation’s most vulnerable individuals are also prone to abuse. If you suspect a loved one has experienced abuse, contact our attorneys to hold the abusers responsible.
  • Dog bites – Owners must take precautions to secure their pets. If they’re negligent in this duty, you may be eligible for compensation.
  • Car accidents – including motorcycles and trucks.
  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Burn injuries – including scalding and electrocution.

The Basic Elements of Your Personal Injury Claim

In order to prevail in a personal injury claim you must prove the following four things:

  • That the person you are suing (the defendant) had a duty to exercise care around you. For example, doctors are required to follow an established standard of care with their patients.
  • The defendant violated that duty of care, or was negligent.
  • That negligence directly led to your injuries.
  • Those injuries led to significant damages. For example, you incurred significant medical bills, lost wages by missing work, or experienced significant pain and suffering because of your injuries.
