What is Personal Injury?
A personal injury, defined by Pennsylvania law, is any injury that affects the body or mind of an individual. Personal injury cases are legal disputes that arise when a person suffers harm from an accident or injury, and someone else may be legally responsible for that harm. Whether you need to file a formal lawsuit or negotiate an informal settlement, Hughes & Mashinski can help.

Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury
Injured individuals have a limited time in which to file a lawsuit, called a statute of limitations. Usually, the period of time dictated by a statute of limitations begins when the plaintiff is injured or discovers the injury. Statutes of limitations are established by state law and often vary by type of injury. Because of these distinctions, make sure to call Hughes & Mashinski, to determine whether your case is properly within the statute of limitations.
