Who can file a personal injury lawsuit?
Victims of negligence may be eligible to seek compensation for their losses. In most cases, that means the injured person can bring a suit. But sometimes there may be additional plaintiffs such as:
- Immediate family members who depend on the injured person for financial and other support may have a claim for their own loss of that support.
- Parents of an injured child may both seek repayment of their own losses and seek compensation on their child’s behalf.
- In a wrongful death case, the deceased person’s estate may bring a claim for losses to the heirs, as well as claims that the deceased victim would have been entitled to bring if he or she had survived.
How Much Does a Case Cost?
Who is liable for a personal injury?
To hold a party liable for a personal injury, it is necessary to prove that they breached a duty to act (or to refrain from acting) and that the breach proximately caused the injury, resulting in a loss. This is not always a straightforward determination to make, but Chaffin Luhana’s North Versailles personal injury lawyers will look at the surrounding facts, available evidence, relevant laws, and expert analysis to determine who caused the injuries at issue.
Our experienced attorneys understand life in Allegheny County. We have the hometown perspective to understand your claim, put forth your best case, and secure maximum compensation on your behalf.
Types of compensation available for a serious personal injury
The law recognizes the right of a personal injury victim to be “made whole” by the at-fault party. At Chaffin Luhana, we review the totality of all circumstances to determine the full value of your claim.
Available compensation is broken down into two categories: economic losses and non-economic losses. Economic damages are measurable losses like medical bills and lost wages, while non-economic losses refer to intangibles like pain and suffering or disability.
It is essential to capture the full value of your losses and know how to present them to insurance adjusters, defense counsel, and a jury. Defense attorneys often under-estimate the value of a claim, but our attorneys have the skill and experience to advocate for full and fair compensation successfully.
