How long do I have to file a personal injury case in Pennsylvania?

Personal injury cases sometimes occur because of a negligent action of one person to another. The injured party may want to file a lawsuit to get compensation for their injuries, damages and medical expenses.

The statute of limitations is the legal deadline to file a lawsuit. State statutes set different time limits for different types of cases. For a personal injury case, in which the at-fault party causes injury due to neglect, the victim party has two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit to recover damages. If an injured person does not file within two years after the accident, then they may lose their right to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party.
