These accidents can result in serious injury requiring extensive medical care and missed work days. Worse, they can take the life of a loved one. Don’t suffer alone. Contact TopDog Law today for your free case evaluation and learn how we can help you. 

What Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?

We can easily measure some damages in monetary terms, like medical expenses and lost income. Others are more subjective, such as pain and suffering or mental anguish. We also take into account estimated future losses.

Chances are, the insurance company won’t take the time to explore how the accident has affected your life and your family’s life. 

When you hire a personal injury lawyer with TopDog Law to handle your claim, we will review all your accident expenses, lost time away from work, and learn if and how your accident will affect your future earning potential. We’ll also assess how your injuries affected your ability to do daily tasks and how they affect your family. We factor all of these considerations into the value of your claim. 

Understanding the accident’s full impact on your life gives us a more accurate picture of the damages we can demand from the insurance company. 

What Damages Can Personal Injury Victims Recover?  

Victims of personal injuries may recover compensation for economic and non-economic damages. 

Economic Damages

Economic damages are expenses that result from accident-related injuries with an actual dollar value, such as:

  • Medical treatment, medication, procedures, surgeries, physical therapy, rehabilitation, etc.
  • Special equipment for mobility
  • Modifications to your home or vehicle
  • Lost income, benefits, and earnings 
  • Loss of future earnings or earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Funeral and burial or cremation expenses

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages are sometimes referred to as general damages. These losses have no objective dollar value and may include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium

Proving Negligence in a Personal Injury Case

To recover compensation in a personal injury case, you must show that another person caused the accident or incident that injured you by establishing four elements of negligence—duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages. 

Duty of Care

To prove the first element of negligence, you must show that the at-fault party owed you a duty of care. For example, all drivers must follow traffic laws and drive safely to protect others from harm. 

Breach of Duty

The second element involves the at-fault party breaching their duty of care. For example, if a driver speeds, they breach their duty of care and put other motorists and pedestrians at risk. 


To establish the third element, causation, you must show that the at-fault party’s negligence caused the accident or incident that injured you. So, for example, if you prove the speeding driver lost control of his vehicle and crashed into your car, resulting in your injuries, you establish causation. 


Damages are the financial or personal losses you incur due to your accident injuries, such as medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. 

What if I Partially Caused the Accident?

Different states have different rules when it comes to personal injury cases. Pennsylvania follows a modified comparative negligence rule, which means that accident victims have the right to pursue compensation for damages they suffered as long as the court does not find them more than 51 percent at fault for the accident. However, the compensation the court awards decreases by your percentage of fault. But if the court finds you 51 percent or more to blame, you cannot receive any money for your injuries.

How Can a Lawyer Help Me With My Personal Injury Claim?

If you don’t understand the complex personal injury claims process or the types of compensation you may recover, chances are you will wind up leaving money on the table. A legal professional from TopDog Law can provide peace of mind that a professional will handle all aspects of your case to ensure the best possible outcome. Here’s how we can help you:

Investigate Your Accident

Our personal injury lawyers will begin with a thorough investigation into the accident that injured you. We’ll bring in accident scene reconstructionists, medical experts, or accountants to testify on your behalf if needed.

Identify All Liable Parties

Sometimes our investigation reveals other parties may share the blame for your accident. For example, if a drunk driver hits you, we might hold the restaurant that served the intoxicated driver liable. If an inexperienced truck driver collides with your vehicle, the trucking company may bear some responsibility for negligent hiring.

Value Your Personal Injury Claim

Insurance companies won’t take the time to understand how much your accident injuries have affected your and your family’s lives now and in the future. Your TopDog Law lawyer will do the legwork to get a more accurate value for your claim and demand the insurance company pay you in full for all the damages you suffered.

Deal With Insurance Companies on Your Behalf

You have to speak carefully to insurance companies because they will use your words against you to get out of paying you the full amount you deserve. Once you hire a lawyer from TopDog Law, we will handle all communications with the insurance company so you can focus on your recovery. We will counter any lowball offers the insurance company offers and negotiate on your behalf to reach a fair settlement. 

Represent You in Court

If the insurance company doesn’t make a fair offer, we can take them to court. We will file your personal injury lawsuit in civil court before time runs out and prepare your case for trial. Insurers usually settle cases before they go to court because trials take time and money. We will continue negotiations with the insurance company. But if the insurer fails to agree to a fair settlement, we will proudly and aggressively represent your interests before a judge and jury.

What Is My Deadline for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Bala Cynwyd?

Each state has its own deadline for filing personal injury claims in civil court. Pennsylvania has a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims. The clock starts clicking on the day of your injury. Plaintiffs face a two-year deadline for wrongful death claims, beginning from the date of the person’s death, and a two-year deadline for filing medical malpractice claims, beginning on the date the person discovered their injury.

While two years may seem like a long time, preparing your case and filing it with the court takes time.

Time is precious when it comes to personal injury cases. Don’t delay. Hire an attorney from TopDog Law.
