Pennsylvania accident liability claims address losses inflicted upon individuals harmed by another party's careless or reckless actions. Injured victims may recover compensation for economic and non-economic hardships like medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering. Additionally, wrongful death actions can be filed by family members for personal losses suffered due to a loved one's death.
Defendants in Pittsburgh auto accident cases may be at-fault drivers and third parties responsible in some way for a victim's injury or death. For example, a carmaker can be held accountable for auto design or manufacturing defects that were responsible for an accident, injuries or deaths.
