Frequently Asked Questions about Catastrophic Injury in Philadelphia

How long do I have to pursue a claim for compensation after suffering catastrophic injuries that were caused by someone else?

If you sustained catastrophic injuries from an accident that was someone else’s fault, the statute of limitations typically gives you two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the parties liable for your injuries and losses. If you file suit after the statute of limitations has expired on your claim, your case may end up being permanently dismissed. For that reason, you should speak to a serious injury attorney in Philadelphia, PA from Baldwin Matzus, LLC as soon as possible to ensure that you can timely file a lawsuit in pursuit of your claim for compensation.

Can I be awarded compensation other than for my financial and personal losses?

If you sustained devastating, life-altering injuries in an accident that was caused by another party’s egregious, reckless, or intentional behavior, you might receive an award of punitive damages in a catastrophic injury lawsuit. Punitive damages are infrequently awarded, and only in cases where the responsible party’s conduct shocks the conscience. Punitive damages do not compensate an injury victim for any loss, but are instead intended to punish the at-fault party for their behavior and to hopefully dissuade others from engaging in similar behavior.
