Personal Injury Lawyers Pittsburgh

Auto, Car And Truck Accidents

Unfortunately most people who drive a vehicle will at some point in their life be involved in a car accident. When this happens, you should call a Pittsburgh car accident lawyer so that you have someone fighting on your side. Happily minor fender-benders and other small collisions, while costly in terms of car repairs, usually do not result in serious injuries to those involved.

Serious car accidents are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries and serious spinal injuries, both of which may lead to permanent disability, mental and physical impairments, long-term financial, emotional, physical damages and even death.  If you’ve been in a car accident, make sure you follow these steps to protect your rights!

Construction Accidents

If you have been injured in a construction accident, or someone you love has been harmed on-the-job, you need to talk with an attorney who will help keep you and your family above water and get you the money you need for medical treatment, your lost earnings and other expenses and for the pain and suffering you go through.

Medical Malpractice and Nursing Home Abuse

Malpractice claims fall under three types: Professional negligence, Gross negligence, and Malicious conduct. Simple negligence claims range from careless prescription advice—resulting in allergic reactions and sometimes death, to the complicated surgery choices that may be beyond the standard of care for a physician practicing in Allegheny County. Gross negligence claims come in many forms.

Additional Forms of Medical Malpractice by Type: Surgical Errors, Birth Related, IV Infiltration, Failure to Diagnose, and Nursing Home Abuse

In Pennsylvania, a wrongful death lawsuit claim is brought (in most cases by a surviving spouse, parent, or child) to recover damages for the injuries that the surviving family and/or estate have suffered due to the death of the victim.
