The Importance of Working with a Licensed Pennsylvania Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal Injury Law in Pennsylvania
In Pennsylvania, if you get hurt because someone else did something wrong, the law allows you to seek compensation. This can include if you are bitten by a dog or if you are in a car, pedestrian, or biking accident.
Reach out to us as soon as possible after you have been in an accident so that we can help you navigate Pennsylvania accident law. GSAS attorneys know the Pennsylvania personal injury law process and can support you throughout the legal process.
Pennsylvania Negligence Laws
Pennsylvania laws enforce the rule of modified comparative negligence. Under this rule, the degree of fault assigned to the individuals in an accident determines if they are eligible for damages compensation and the relative amount that can be awarded. If you were assigned less than 51% fault for an accident, you can seek compensation for damages you incurred.
The settlement you can receive from your claim is dependent on your prescribed percentage of fault. Suppose you are 20% at fault for an accident, and the damages are evaluated to be $100,000. Your settlement will be reduced by your 20% at-fault factor, and you will receive a maximum of $80,000. GSAS's Pennsylvania personal injury lawyer can help you understand how these laws might apply to your case and affect your outcome.
Proving Fault in Pennsylvania
Clearly determining fault is a critical part of any personal injury case. Experienced personal injury attorneys will help you document your case thoroughly to ensure that your assignment of fault is accurate and you are able to obtain a fair settlement.
Even if you have been told you are more than 50% at fault for an accident, it is possible that additional evidence exists that could reduce the percentage of fault initially assigned to you. To document fault you will need strong evidence to support your case. This can include: witness testimonies, accident reports, and expert opinions. An experienced personal injury attorney like those at GSAS will guide you through this process.
What if You are At Fault?
Even if you have been ticketed, found to be at fault, or had an insurance claim denied, you may have a realistic claim to be compensated. There are many reasons that an insurance claim could be denied, some of which have nothing to do with fault or the validity of a claim. Sometimes insurance claims are denied due to incomplete documentation or paperwork filed by the accident victim.
A skillful Pennsylvania personal injury attorney like those at GSAS will evaluate all the facts of your case including tickets, police reports, and insurance determinations to advise you about your chance to succeed with a claim or a lawsuit. They have the experience to interpret the various documents and know what additional research may be needed to bolster a case to get you the compensation you deserve.
Don’t assume that you have no case if you’ve been assigned fault, or been rejected by an insurance company. Call GSAS to evaluate your case and gain the partner that you need for this important battle.

Compensation and Settlements for Pennsylvania Accident Victims
In Pennsylvania, if you're hurt in an accident, you can pursue compensation for economic and/or non-economic damages. It is the role of an experienced personal injury lawyer to work with insurance companies to agree on a settlement amount that covers all of the damages incurred in an accident. Personal injury attorneys with good track records like GSAS are skilled negotiators and can often help accident victims avoid the additional stress of a lawsuit and a court process.
Economic damages have a clear monetary value. For example, they include money you didn't earn because you were unable to work after the accident, medical bills, and money you could have earned in the future if you weren't injured.
Non-economic damages are harder to explain because they are harder to measure. They're meant to make up for physical and emotional pain, and ways in which your life has been negatively impacted because of the accident.
