State Laws on Negligence
Most personal injury cases hinge on proving that the responsible party was negligent in providing a duty of care that was reasonably expected from the plaintiff (the person suing) in the case. In other words, they had a legal responsibility to prevent harm to the plaintiff. Proving negligence can be a complex matter and every state has its own laws governing the subject. It is crucial that your attorney is familiar with the laws in the state where your accident happened.
Pennsylvania law adheres to the principal of comparative negligence which means that damages awarded to you in a personal injury case can be reduced if it can be shown that you were partially responsible for the accident that caused your injuries. For example, if the court decides ten percent of the blame lies with you then you will receive any damages awarded, less ten percent. Let our legal team review your specific situation to determine the best possible case to put forth in a personal injury lawsuit.
