Our Attorneys Are Experienced in a Wide Range of Accident Claims

When you are fighting an insurance company for a fair settlement, you need advocates who know what they are up against. The personal injury lawyers of Accident Injury Law Group have the inside knowledge necessary to take on the insurance company and win. Whether you were injured in a motor vehicle crash, workplace accident, dog bite, slip and fall, or as a result of medical negligence, we will fight for you.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

It can be hard to know when you need an attorney to represent you in a Pittsburgh car accident claim and when you do not. Insurance adjusters will definitely try to convince you that you do not need a lawyer. That is because they know that people who hire attorneys usually end up with much larger settlements than those who do not. If you were injured in a serious car accident, don’t risk being taken advantage of by the insurance company. Call us for a free evaluation of your case. If we cannot help you, we will be honest with you.

If we can help, however, you can be confident that we will fight for a settlement that will cover all of your medical bills and auto repairs. We will not back down until we get an acceptable offer, or we will take the at-fault driver to court. Contact us today to learn more about our commitment to helping victims of car accidents get the recovery they deserve.

Construction Accidents

You have one of the toughest and most dangerous jobs in the country. You wear a hard hat, use personal protective equipment, and count on the ladders and scaffolding you use to be safe and secure. When something goes wrong, however, and you fall or are crushed by machinery, who is to blame? Can you sue your employer? What if another worker ran you over? Is he responsible, or is his employer?

These are hard questions to answer by yourself. When you are injured on a construction site in Western Pennsylvania, you need an experienced construction accident law firm to investigate what happened and determine who may be held liable. Because your employer is required by law to provide workers’ compensation coverage, you will not be able to sue them for negligence, but there may be other liable parties on a construction site. Contact our office to learn more.

Motorcycle Accidents

You may be tempted to take on the insurance company for the negligent driver who caused your motorcycle crash on your own. However, many bikers do not realize what they are up against when they try to defend their rights as a motorcyclist. With experience in the insurance industry and in representing injured motorcyclists in crash claims, our attorneys are uniquely poised to help you get the settlement you deserve after a devastating motorcycle crash.

We understand the challenges faced by bikers when careless or negligent drivers injure them. We have the experience to take on these challenges and win. Whether you are being discriminated against because you ride a motorcycle, or your injuries are catastrophic and the insurance company does not want to pay up, we are here to help.

 

Pedestrian Accidents

If you were hit by a car in Pittsburgh, you will need experienced legal representation in order to ensure that your right to a fair recovery is protected.

Our attorneys not only have experience with pedestrian accidents in Pittsburgh, but we have experience in the insurance industry as well. When you work with the Accident & Injury Law Group, you can focus on your recovery, while we put the time and attention into getting you the best possible settlement from the driver who hit you.

Premises Liability

One minute you’re scanning the shelves in your neighborhood Giant Eagle, the next minute you’re on the ground feeling extreme pain in your ankle. As a loyal patron of this supermarket, you should not have to constantly search the ground around you for potential obstacles and hazards, and the store owner has a responsibility to keep the environment safe. When he fails in that responsibility, you may have a case for premises liability.

These claims are not easy to prove. You must show that the property owner knew of the hazard and ignored it, and you must also show that you did not contribute to the accident by being careless or clumsy. Call the Accident & Injury Law Group as soon as possible after your accident to see if you have a claim worth pursuing.

Bicycle Accidents

As a cyclist riding to work or for exercise and enjoyment, you are entitled to a safe journey. When motorists fail to obey the traffic laws designed to protect bicycle riders, they should be held accountable when their actions injure a bicyclist. Our attorneys are proud to help those injured in bicycle accidents fight for the fair compensation they deserve from the negligent driver’s insurance company.

Whether you were run off the road, rear-ended, or hit by a car door, our experienced bicycle accident attorneys will know how to investigate the accident and build the strongest possible case for compensation. Do not hesitate to get medical attention after a bike crash and then call our Pittsburgh law office for a free consultation.

Birth Injuries

You did everything you could to ensure a healthy pregnancy and smooth delivery, but when the doctor presented you with your newborn, you could tell something was not right. Whether it was a limp arm, swollen head, bruised scalp, or something less obvious, you knew something was wrong and you want answers. The doctor or hospital staff is not likely to be forthcoming about what may have happened, but you should trust your instincts and get a second opinion—preferably a legal one.

When you call the Accident & Injury Law Group about a possible birth injury malpractice case, we will bring in medical experts to examine your child and the hospital records. We will question those involved and get to the bottom of what went wrong. We will not leave you alone with a baby who is suffering. Call us as soon as you suspect something may have gone wrong. We will be there for you when the doctors were not.

Child Sex Abuse

Sexual abuse of a minor is a serious crime, the effects of which can be both long-lasting and far-reaching. While the criminal justice system can impose penalties such as fines, jail time, probation, or community service, the civil litigation system allows victims to hold perpetrators or their employers financially responsible for their heinous actions.

Was your child the victim of sexual abuse? At the Accident and Injury Law Group, our attorneys fight for abused children as if they were our own. Do you have questions about a child sex abuse case? Call us today at 412-245-3529 to request an appointment for a free initial case consultation.
