Allentown Personal Injury FAQ 

Q: How Long Do I Have to File My Allentown Personal Injury Claim?

Every state sets its own time limit, called a statute of limitations, for filing a personal injury case. Once the clock runs out on the statute of limitations for your case, courts cannot consider your claims.

In Pennsylvania, most personal injury claims, such as slip and fall cases, workplace injuries, heavy machinery accidents, and car crashes, have a two-year statute of limitations. This means that you have two years from the date of your personal injury accident to file your case in a Lehigh County courthouse.

Of course, a good personal injury lawyer knows that a lot of work needs to be done before a case is ready to be filed. Your attorney will want to investigate the cause of your injuries, collect documents and medical records, discuss your case strategy, evaluate any insurance policies,  determine which defendants to sue and which Lehigh Valley courthouse to choose. To get started on your personal injury claim, contact Munley Law’s Allentown personal injury lawyers today.

Q: When Will I Get Paid for My Personal Injury Case?

Unfortunately, there is no way to predict exactly how long it will take for your case to be resolved and for you to be paid, and any lawyer who tells you a date with certainty is not telling the truth.

However, understanding the stages of a personal injury claim and the factors that affect each phase may help you better predict how long it will take to resolve your personal case.

The biggest factor is whether your case settles or goes to trial. According to a report by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, a division of the United States Department of Justice, only about 3% of tort cases are tried in court. To learn more about why most Allentown personal injury cases settle, check out our Munley Law personal injury blog post. 

Q: How Much is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?

There are a number of factors that impact how much compensation a victim injured in Allentown or the greater Lehigh Valley is owed for their injuries, so it is impossible to predict exactly how much your claim is worth without knowing the details of how you were hurt, what injuries you suffered, who is at fault, the medical care you will need moving forward, and whether you are still able to work and perform other everyday tasks.

Generally speaking, the more severe the injuries, the more money you will be owed by the defendants in your case. However, who you chose to represent you may be the biggest factor that will determine how much you are awarded.
