Car Accidents Making Your Justice Possible

Car Accident Lawyer in Pittsburgh

Car accidents are the main subject of personal injury claims and lawsuits. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has made a report that more than 38,000 people lost their lives in traffic crashes in 2020, despite fewer Americans driving that year. Car crashes can cause some of the most damaging and catastrophic injuries imaginable, such as traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord damage that can leave accident victims permanently disabled.

When an injury has been caused by the negligence of a driver or other responsible entity, such as trucking companies, governmental agencies, or automobile and car part manufacturers, a personal injury claim can be pursued. At Kontos Mengine Killion & Hassen, our car accident lawyers in Pittsburgh have more than 80 years of combined experience in the recovery of compensation for accident victims.

Who is Liable for a Car Crash?

These drivers and their insurers can be held responsible for the injuries and other damages you have sustained because of their negligence. Other parties that may also be held accountable are the manufacturers and distributors of defective motor vehicles and their component parts, as well as governmental agencies who build or maintain roadways that may prove to be defective or dangerous.

Motor vehicle accidents can put you out of commission, unable to work and physically and emotionally traumatized for days, weeks, months, or years. In the meantime, you may be facing personal expenses and medical bills that you cannot pay for while you are out of work and trying to recover. Putting together a personal injury claim in such a situation can be a daunting task.

How do you assess the value of your pain and suffering, emotional distress, financial stress, and inconvenience? You may think it is easier to just accept the settlement offer you are given by an insurer, but this would be a mistake. These are generally low offers that are designed to get you to settle quickly for less, so the insurer is off the hook for the actual value of your claim.

Traffic Crash Injury Cases

Our firm handles all types of traffic accidents, including collisions involving the following:

  • Cars, motorcycles, trucks, city buses, pedestrians, and bicyclists
  • Rideshare drivers and companies, such as Uber and Lyft
  • Taxis and other public vehicles
  • Long-distance buses such as Greyhound and others
  • School buses
  • Commercial trucks and trucking companies

Car accidents can include those involving drunk and/or drugged driving, driving while texting, rear-end accidents, hit and runs, rollovers, fatigued/drowsy drivers, and drivers failing to obey traffic laws (such as by running red lights and stop signs, speeding, tailgating, and more).

Put Proven Lawyers on Your Side

As a victim of negligence, recklessness, or carelessness in a car accident, you deserve full and fair compensation for all of your damages. These can include not only medical expenses, but also long-term care and rehabilitation costs; your lost income or wages; pain and emotional suffering; property damage to your car; and, where applicable, compensation for disability, disfigurement, loss of limb, loss of earning capacity, and loss of enjoyment in life.

Our firm of skilled litigators will build your case to put you in the strongest possible position against insurance company tactics that are designed to reduce their liability. Let us remove the stress of pursuing a claim from your life by putting our professionalism to work for you.
