The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has what is called a statute of limitations, or in other words, a limited amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit. In Pennsylvania, most personal injury claims have a two-year time period within which the injured party, their estate or parents/guardians (in the event the injured party is a minor) have to file a lawsuit. There are some limited exceptions to the statute of limitations.

Failure to file a claim or lawsuit within the prescribed time period under the statute of limitations could forever bar you from recovery. The time period usually begins to run on the date the incident occurs. That is why it is very important to discuss your case with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. These matters are time sensitive! At O’Malley & Perry Law we stand ready to discuss your case and provide you with the expertise and information you need.
