At Kontos Mengine Killion & Hassen, we provide legal representation in cases involving personal injury, wrongful death, and civil rights violations. Because of our concentration in these areas, we believe we bring exceptional service and professionalism to our clients throughout the greater Pittsburgh area. Our attorneys can consult with you wherever you need — at your home, in the hospital, through video conference calls, or on the phone. We remain available for your questions and concerns throughout all phases of your case.
We know how stressful civil claims can be when you have been injured, unexpectedly lost a loved one, or faced with civil rights matters that can lead to physical, emotional, or financial harm. Seeking justice for these matters without the guidance or support of a proven attorney is difficult and not recommended. At our firm, you can rely on our dedication to seeking the best possible results through intense case preparation and advocacy, whether when negotiating for a fair settlement or litigating your case in court.
Because our team has decades of experience in handling these matters, we have developed extensive knowledge, resources, and skills that can make a difference in the outcome of your claim or lawsuit. Our firm is backed by extensive experience both in and out of court, as well as the resources needed to put you in the best possible legal position for negotiation or litigation. We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible to learn what we can do in a claim or lawsuit on your behalf.
Our lawyers handle the following cases:
- Assault injuries. These are injuries sustained as a result of criminal attacks.
- Medical malpractice. This is a legal cause of action that occurs when a medical or health care professional deviates from standards in their profession, thereby causing injury to a patient.
- Motor vehicle accidents. Negligent drivers and their insurers can be held accountable for the injuries you sustain due to their faulty actions on the road.
- Slip and fall. When property owners are negligent and cause injury to others, they may be held accountable under premises liability law.
- Product liability. This refers to a manufacturer or seller being held liable for placing a defective product into the hands of a consumer. The responsibility for a product defect that causes injury lies with all who are in the distribution chain.
Fatal injuries caused by the negligence or wrongful conduct of automobile operators, medical providers, or corporations can lead to lawsuits seeking compensation for surviving family members.
