A: Those who are injured due to negligence of police in a police chase accident situation may obtain financial recovery for their injuries. Each case is unique and depending on the circumstances, an injured plaintiff may recover the following:

  • pain and suffering,
  • medical bills for past and future treatment,
  • past and future lost wages, and
  • other financial losses.

However, it is important to note that special laws apply to all claims or lawsuits against Pennsylvania government agencies such as a police department. For instance, there is a 6 month notice requirement which requires that the injured person file a notice with the correct agency no later than 180 days after the accident occurred. Failure to do so may result in denial of the claim altogether.

It is vital to have the case reviewed by a knowledgeable lawyer with experience handling police chase matters in Pennsylvania.
