Personal Injury General
Personal injury lawsuits are life changing. When you or a loved one are injured by the carelessness of another, you are entitled to full and fair compensation under the law. We understand that this is a time of great uncertainty. One of the biggest frustrations accident victims face is finding a way to pay your medical bills and speak with the insurance companies. Let us deal with the insurance companies and bill collectors. At our law firm, we stand by you from the time you are injured, through medical treatment, and work tirelessly to get you the meaningful compensation your family deserves.
We handle most any type of personal injury lawsuit:
Automobile / Motorcycle
Heavy Highway / Tractor Trailer
Slip and Fall
Loss of consortium
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU CALL OUR LAW FIRM
We cannot stress enough the importance of seeking immediate legal advice. So many injured people are victimized a second time by sharing incorrect and inaccurate statements on social media websites, through text messages, or by speaking with insurance representatives. Insurance defense firms know how to take advantage of an accident victim’s unguarded statements. The first thing that we tell our clients during the initial consultation is this: keep it private—that’s our policy. That means, no photos, no online posts, no text messages, etc. No good can come from discussing your claim with anyone directly—that is what legal counsel is for.
Also, you must do everything you can to ensure that evidence is preserved. Every second counts after you are injured. As time passes there is a risk that important evidence may be lost or destroyed, which may result in a total loss of your claim. Our office will ensure that evidence in the hands of potential defendants is preserved. Don’t wait to call.
All initial consultations are done personally. Our East Liberty office is convenient and comfortable for those in the Pittsburgh area. But, we are more than willing to meet at your home or any other location. If you have a valid claim we will typically offer a Contingent Fee Agreement: An agreement between an attorney and his or her client whereby the attorney agrees to represent the client for a percentage of the amount recovered. This fee agreement is the industry standard in personal injury actions. We forward all costs of litigation: filing fees, supplies, expert witness fees, etc. We are not reimbursed and we do not receive a fee for our services unless you receive compensation.
For us, there is no greater satisfaction than delivering compensation to our clients. Although delivering that final check is a bitter sweet occasion. Money can never replace a loved one or bring back the years lost in recovery, but it can ease life’s burdens going forward. It can help get appropriate medical care for mom and dad. It can help set up a college fund for children or pay off a mortgage. It puts food on the table when you can no longer work. We believe that helping others is a lawyer’s highest calling. Give us a call—we can help—the consultation is free.
