Bethel Park Personal Injury Lawyers
Bethel Park, Pennsylvania is no stranger to personal injury lawsuits — from distracted driving car accidents and DUIs, to icy parking lot slip-and-falls and workplace injuries. From Rocky Ridge down to Piney Fork, our personal injury lawyers, who have 85 years of combined experience, proudly represent area residents seeking maximum injury compensation.
Damages in Personal Injury Cases
Most injury claims involve compensation for “general damages” such as medical bills and lost wages, at the very least. These costs to the plaintiff are easily calculated by adding up pay stubs multiplied by missed days off work, hospital stays, co-pays, diagnostic imaging out-of-pockets, medication costs, and rehabilitation charges.
Depending on the circumstances of the case, you may be eligible for damages related to:
- Emotional distress, pain, and suffering
• Disability-related home modifications
• Wrongful death, funeral, and burial costs
• Loss of support/guidance/consortium/companionship
• Punitive damages in cases of extreme negligence or recklessness.
David’s Auto Accident Case Testimonial for Chaffin Luhana.
While no amount of money can ever undo all the hardship caused by sudden trauma, exercising one’s legal rights holds liable parties accountable for their actions (or inactions), while providing some measure of financial comfort. With a substantial settlement, plaintiffs can receive the best possible treatment throughout recovery.
Civil Lawsuits Allow for Expanded Recovery
Unlike criminal court, which seeks to establish fault against a particular individual charged with a crime, civil court allows for an expanded scope of liability.
For instance, in a defective drug lawsuit, we can sue drug manufacturers and marketers. In a car accident case, the city could be liable for failure to maintain the roadways, or a car manufacturer can be liable for selling faulty equipment, or an employer could be liable for failing to properly monitor an employee when the accident happens “on-the-clock.”
No Legal Fees Unless We Win Money for You
Consultations with our attorneys are always free of charge. If we agree to represent an accident victim’s case, we pay all filing fees, investigative costs, copying expenses, deposition fees, and expert witness retainers out of our pocket.
In fact, our clients pay us nothing unless we win money on their behalf in settlement or verdict, so working with us is risk-free. Our legal fee is deducted from the compensation we win on your behalf.
Filing As Soon As Possible Strengthens the Claim
Pennsylvania allows accident victims two years to file their claims in civil court. However, it is a good idea to begin working with a personal injury attorney at our firm at once. Our lawyers not only handle all the paperwork, but we can point injured parties in the right direction with referrals for the best possible medical care.
We can stop harassment from bill collectors. We often pay for more in-depth investigations that collect a greater body of evidence and get to the bottom of what really happened. Contact Chaffin Luhana today and we will deliver immediate assistance and support.
