Comparative Negligence

It is important to determine who was careless or at fault (negligent) in a vehicle accident because that person can be held liable for damages in a personal injury lawsuit. If a loved one died in your vehicle accident and you weren’t at fault, you may have a case for wrongful death.

Pennsylvania operates under a comparative negligence system that examines how much each party was responsible for the damages and injuries involved. You must show that the other party was 50% or more negligent (careless or at fault), and you must not be more than 50% liable in order to recover damages.

Recoverable Damages

If you were injured in a vehicle accident due to someone else’s carelessness, you may be able to collect monetary damages for any or some combination of the following losses:

  • Disfigurement
  • Embarrassment
  • Emotional suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Loss of love and affection
  • Lost wages, including overtime
  • Medical bills
  • Mental disability
  • Mental distress
  • Pain and suffering
  • Permanent scars
  • Physical disability
