Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Taylor
What do you need to do in order to file a personal injury claim in Taylor? The answer to that question will depend on where you got hurt and how you suffered an injury. For most motor vehicle accident claims, you will need to work with an attorney on an auto insurance claim through Pennsylvania’s no-fault system. Then, if necessary, you can show that your injuries meet the threshold to file a lawsuit.
For a workplace injury, you will need to report the injury to your employer as soon as possible (within 120 days maximum) and file a workers’ compensation claim.
Most other types of personal injuries in Taylor can allow you to file a personal injury lawsuit, which you will usually need to do within two years from the date of the injury.
