Determining Negligence in Injury Cases

Proving Negligence

If you’ve been injured due to someone’s negligence, you must show that they owed you a duty of care, they breached that duty of care, and that breach caused your damages.

Modified Comparative Negligence

Modified comparative negligence is a legal doctrine apportioning fault to each party involved in a injury case. A plaintiff’s monetary judgment is reduced by the percentage of negligence assigned to the plaintiff by the jury.
In Pennsylvania, an injury plaintiff can only seek damages from a defendant if the plaintiff is less than 51 percent at fault for the accident.

The Role of an Injury Lawyer

Evaluating Your Case

When evaluating your injury case, we’ll discuss your accident, review your medical records, and calculate your lost wages, present and future medical expenses, and other damages.

Gathering Evidence

We investigate the circumstances of your accident including interviewing witnesses and obtaining police reports.

Establishing Liability

We identify all parties who may be responsible for your accident and establish the duty of care that they breached.

Negotiating a Settlement

We put our years of experience working with insurance companies to assess the value of your claim and advocate for full payment of your claim.

Litigating and Holding People and Institutions Responsible

When the insurance company refuses to pay what you deserve, we do not hesitate to litigate on your behalf. A jury of your peers can force the responsible parties to pay you.

Potential Damages Available in an Injury Claim

Compensation in Philadelphia injury cases varies as widely as the types of accidents and injuries that occur. An injury plaintiff can get compensated for medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering.

Special Compensatory Damages

In Pennsylvania, the financial costs you incur because of someone’s negligence are called special compensatory damages. These include medical bills, such as the costs of tests, procedures, treatments, hospital stays, medications, and therapies, as well as the costs of any special equipment you need because of your injury, such as a wheelchair, and the costs of any modifications you must make to your home because of your injury.


Special compensatory damages also include the wages you can’t earn because you miss work due to your injury. If your injury has left you with a diminished capacity to work, you can be compensated for the loss of future wages.


Last, if you’ve suffered property damage due to the accident, such as damage to your car, you can recover those costs in the form of special compensatory damages.

General Compensatory Damages

In Pennsylvania, non-economic damages are known as general compensatory damages. You can be compensated for your emotional suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, continuing physical pain, disfigurement, and loss of companionship if your injury changed your relationship with your spouse.

Punitive Damages

In Pennsylvania, injury plaintiffs get punitive damages if the defendant’s actions are particularly egregious, such as when they act or fail to act in reckless disregard for the safety of others. These damages are meant to punish the defendant and also deter others from acting as the defendant did.


As a general rule, punitive damages are limited to twice the amount of compensatory damages received in Pennsylvania.

FAQs

How Long Does It Take for an Injury Case to Settle?

It varies according to the complexity of the case and whether the defendant admits fault. Some injury cases never settle and must be litigated in court. Others settle quickly, in a matter of weeks or months.

Speak with a local, experienced injury lawyer who has a track record of success. They have the skill to honestly assess your case.

The short answer is yes. First, an injury lawyer in Philadelphia will know how to assess an injury claim and what to demand from the insurance company. Second, when you work with Cousin Benny, we minimize out-of-pocket expenses for you by taking your case on a contingency basis. So is it worth it to work with us? Yes, because when we take your case we expect to get you the compensation you deserve.

It should cost nothing, initially. When your case settles or you receive a money judgment from the court, your injury attorney receives a portion of that according to your retainer agreement. At Cousin Benny, you know the minute we take your case what our fee is.
