Car Accident Lawyer In Willow Grove

willow grove car accident lawyerWillow Grove is an unincorporated community 15 miles north of Philadelphia and sits within three incorporated townships, Upper Dublin, Abington, and Upper Moreland. The area contains many neighborhood communities with a mix of light industrial, retail shops, and office spaces.

Many Willow Grove residents commute the 15 miles into Philly to work taking Broad Street straight into the city or the Pennsylvania Turnpike to the Fort Washington Expressway to avoid the traffic lights and congestion on Broad St. Others will head east on the Turnpike taking I-95 to one of the steel mills or ironworks plants on the Delaware River.

Still, others will stay closer to home and work construction, retail or in one of the many schools or hospitals. After work, the people of Willow Grove are still on the go heading out to watch a movie, heading to the Willow Grove Park Mall, or visiting one of the many restaurants in the region. This puts them in their cars many hours a week.

Unfortunately, this also puts them at risk for accidents. In fact, getting into a car accident is the number one cause of personal injury for the people of Willow Grove. When this happens, they need the trusted resources that the Pearce Law Firm, P.C., provides.

If you have been injured due to the negligence or physical harm of another, you may be facing an uphill battle. The injury may cause serious injuries resulting in expensive medical bills and other damages. If you find yourself in this position, it is important to have an attorney on your side to advocate on your behalf.
The personal injury attorneys at The Pearce Law Firm, P.C. are prepared to help ensure that you are compensated adequately for the injuries you suffered.

Basics of Personal Injury
In order to pursue a successful personal injury case, the victim must demonstrate that he or she suffered an injury because of another person or entity’s negligence or reckless conduct, or, in some cases, intentional actions.

If the victim, known as the “plaintiff” in a personal injury suit, can demonstrate this to a judge or jury, he or she will be eligible to receive compensation, generally referred to as “damages.”

Pennsylvania Shared Fault Law

In many circumstances, multiple parties may be at fault in one accident. If you have a case against another party and are also somewhat at fault, it may affect the amount of compensation that you can receive. Pennsylvania follows a rule that is referred to as “modified comparative negligence.” This means that if you are also at fault in the accident for your injury, the amount of damages you receive will be reduced by the percentage you are at fault. For example, if it is determined that you were 20% at fault for your injury and the jury found that you suffered $100,000 in damages, your total amount of damages would be reduced to $80,000.

It is important to note, however, that if it is determined that you were more than 50% at fault for your own injury, Pennsylvania law bars you from collecting anything from any of the other parties.

Damages for Personal Injury Lawsuits

If a person successfully brings a personal injury case against another party, he or she may be awarded damages as compensation for his or her injury. In personal injury cases, damages are generally awarded under two different categories:

  • General Damages: General damages are awarded to cover the actual costs that the victim incurred as a result of the injury. This includes costs such as medical expenses, damage that occurred to the victim’s property, and any loss wages that the victim may endure as a result of not being able to work during the period of recovery.
  • Punitive Damages: Punitive damages are awarded in order to “punish” the liable party. These are generally awarded in circumstances where the person’s conduct who caused the injury can be described as “willful misconduct.”  Willful misconduct can be intentional conduct or conduct characterized as the person knowing there could be serious injury that resulted from their actions.   Most states have statutes that limit the amount of punitive damages that may be awarded in a personal injury case. In Pennsylvania, the state’s laws cap punitive damages at two times the amount of the actual damages awarded.

Under Pennsylvania’s state constitution, limitations on damages in cases that involve injury and death are specifically prohibited. The only exception to this rule is the cap that is placed on punitive damages.

The Importance of Hiring a Personal Injury Attorney

If you have suffered injury in Willow Grove or anywhere else in Pennsylvania, it is in your best interest to hire an attorney to see if  a civil lawsuit should be filed against the liable party to recover damages. Before you do, however, we invite you to contact the Willow Grove personal injury attorneys at the Pearce Law Firm, P.C. for legal assistance. We will examine the specifics of your case, and pursue the best course of action to ensure you receive the highest amount of compensation possible.
