Proving Liability for Your Spinal Injury
Our team of attorneys will work to demonstrate the liability of each and every party who contributed to your spinal injuries. This could include the driver of a vehicle, the owner of a truck company, a healthcare provider, a store manager, or a municipality or similar entity.
In order to prove negligence, we must show the following:
- Duty of care: We must show that the liable party had a duty to keep others safe. All drivers have a duty of care toward others while they are behind the wheel. All store owners are responsible for maintaining a safe environment for their guests.
- Breach of duty: We must show that the liable party neglected their duty of care, such as by driving while intoxicated or by ignoring a large spill in the middle of a walkway.
- Causation: We must show that the liable party’s breach of duty resulted in your accident.
- Damages: Finally, we must show that the accident caused by the liable party’s breach of duty resulted in your injuries, losses, and other expenses.
You do not have to worry about the difficulties of proving liability on your own. A spine trauma lawyer in Bucks County can help collect the necessary evidence and use it to build a strong case that supports your claim.
The Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Claims in Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania state law establishes a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury cases. This means that you generally must file your claim within two years of the date of your injury, or within two years of the date you became aware of your injury. We can help you file the necessary paperwork within the allotted amount of time to preserve your right to pursue the compensation you deserve.
