When Do I Need a Car Wreck Lawyer in Pittsburgh?
You may need such a lawyer if you have been involved in a car accident and suffered serious injuries or lost a loved one. The attorney might be able to provide the legal assistance you need to protect your rights and seek fair compensation for your injuries and damages.
What Damages Can a Car Wreck Lawyer in Pittsburgh Help Me Recover?
Depending on how your case unfolds, you may be able to recover medical expenses if you sought medical attention after the car wreck, lost wages if you couldn’t work due to the injuries you sustained, any damage to your property, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and, in some cases, punitive damages.
Note that each case is different and that the terms of your auto insurance policy will also determine the damages you may recover. If you opted for the no-fault coverage, you can only recover medical expenses and other economic damages. On the other hand, if you opted for the at-fault or “full tort” option, you may recover both economic and non-economic damages.
What Evidence Will My Car Wreck Lawyer Need?
There is no standard list of evidence required to establish liability in these kinds of cases. When you contact us for a free case evaluation, we’ll review your case to determine whether you may be eligible for compensation. Then, we’ll let you know the kind of evidence you may need to establish liability or eligibility for compensation. We will likely need to review police reports if available, medical records if you sought medical attention, photographs of the accident scene if any, eyewitness testimonies, surveillance footage, and more.
How Long Do I Have To File a Car Wreck Lawsuit?
In Pittsburgh, the state gives you only two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the liable party. This time frame is known as the statute of limitations. If you fail to meet this deadline, you will lose your right to pursue legal action.
Can I Still Recover Damages If I Was Partly at Fault for the Accident?
Yes, you can, and that’s because Pennsylvania follows the modified comparative fault rule in such cases, allowing the injured to recover damages as long as they are not more than 50% at fault for the accident. Even so, the amount of compensation you will be awarded will be reduced by your percentage of fault.
