Personal Injury

Protecting the Rights of Plaintiffs and Defendants Since 2000


When someone or some entity acts carelessly and harms another, the cost of their bad behavior is wrongly placed on an innocent victim. Personal injury is the area of the law that allows the cost to be shifted back to the party responsible for the harm. The personal injury lawyers of Noel & Bonebrake serve clients on both sides of these types of disputes. We represent injured plaintiffs who deserve full compensation for their injuries, as well as defendants, who should only be held accountable for harm they actually caused. Our experience on both sides of personal injury claims empowers us to be better advocates for each client we serve.

The Elements of a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Pennsylvania

In a personal injury lawsuit, the burden is on the plaintiff to prove four elements:

Duty

The defendant had an obligation to act carefully to avoid causing harm to the plaintiff.

Breach

The defendant failed, by an act or omission, to fulfill the duty of care.

Causation

The defendant’s breach of the duty of care directly caused injury to the plaintiff.

Damages

Losses the plaintiff experienced as a result. Could include medical bills and physical pain.

The proof does not have to be beyond a reasonable doubt, as with a criminal case, but “by a preponderance of the evidence,” meaning it is more likely than not that events unfolded as the plaintiff maintains.

The statute of limitations sets a deadline within which a plaintiff must file an action or lose all rights to recover compensation. In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations for personal injury is two years, but certain circumstances can extend the period beyond the two-year limit. It’s always best to consult a knowledgeable attorney before making an assumption one way or the other about your rights.
