Our personal injury lawyer in Philadelphia views the attorney-client relationship as one of working partners. As is the case with any partnership, the client’s interest must always be paramount. If a decision is critical to the development of a case, the client must have a voice, not only in the final decision, but also in the decision making process. This type of collaboration results in trust, and ultimately can facilitate a successful resolution of a client’s matter.

Pennsylvania Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases

The statute of limitations sets a time limit on how long after an accident has occurred the injured party is able to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. This statute varies from state to state, so it is important to understand the limitations that apply in the state of Pennsylvania:

  • According to 42 Pa. Consol. Stat. § 5524(2) (2016), an individual is able to file a personal injury lawsuit up to 2 years after the date the injury occurred. This includes instances of wrongful death, product liability, and medical malpractice.

How Can Our Philadelphia Injury Attorney Help You?

It’s absolutely imperative to immediately visit the scene of an accident and photograph the surroundings from all angles. Oftentimes our attorney combines a bike ride with a bike-mounted camera to document evidence with video and still photos. These depictions of the accident scene are later used in depositions to help clients articulate precisely what happened. All cases at Piscitello Law are reviewed weekly in a staff Case Management Review meeting which helps to ensure that they are properly followed and pushed forward on a weekly basis.

Another important aspect of investigating any accident is to retain appropriate expert witnesses. Not only do we utilize engineers with reconstruction backgrounds, but our firm also retains expert physicians who are capable of connecting specific injuries to the mechanics of how they were sustained. While these experts are being retained, it is important to keep our clients up-to-date on their case progress as well as any future steps which must occur prior to settlement or trial.

These high standards set our Philadelphia personal injury firm apart. If you've been hurt, contact us online today or call our office at (215) 372-8768 to request a free case evaluation!

“As I look back on my practice, I’m sincerely grateful to my clients who continue to recommend me to friends and family over the years. In many cases, we work so closely with our clients that a lasting relationship is formed and we remain in touch long after their case resolves.”
