Building a Lawrence County, PA Personal Injury Case
We need evidence of fault and liability to hold the at-fault party legally responsible for injuries and damages in a Lawrence County personal injury case. We must present a strong case to show their insurance carrier or judge and jury why our client deserves a fair payout. The evidence in these cases depends greatly on the situation, what happened, and the injuries that occurred.
Most personal injury claims center on negligence. One party acted negligently and caused others to suffer injuries. There are four elements necessary to show negligence occurred. These are:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
For example, in a crash, traffic laws create duties of care for drivers. A violation of a traffic law is a breach of a driver’s duty. When a driver violates a traffic law, it frequently causes a crash. Victims suffer harm as a result.
Our Lawrence County, PA personal injury attorneys investigate our clients’ cases, identifying the liable party or parties and building a solid argument to show they acted negligently. Using documentation of their damages, we demand fair compensation based on the evidence. This could lead to settlement negotiations and an appropriate payout from the insurance company.
Sometimes, our attorneys need to sue the at-fault party. When this occurs, it moves the case one step closer to trial. However, many cases still settle outside of court after a lawsuit is filed. Our team will offer advice, guidance, and advocacy while we represent your best interests throughout this process.

Suing the Liable Party in a Lawrence County, PA Personal Injury Case
Sometimes, our Lawrence County, PA personal injury attorneys need to file a lawsuit to protect our client’s rights and pursue fair compensation for them. This could occur for several reasons, including approaching time limits, the insurance company refusing to pay an appropriate settlement, or our attorneys recognizing another reason why this might be the best option in your case.
Under Pa. C.S.A. § 5524, victims usually have two years from the date the injuries occurred to initiate a lawsuit in a Lawrence County court. However, the sooner we can get started working on your case, the better.
Our attorneys represent our clients throughout the litigation process. We present strong evidence, fight for their best interests, and navigate the necessary steps on their behalf.
