Personal Injury Overview

Pittsburgh Personal Injury Attorneys Working For You

Fighting For the Rights of Injury Victims in Pennsylvania

When you suffer an injury due to the negligence or carelessness of another, you are likely entitled to monetary compensation and damages under the law. Injuries from accidents cost money — and it adds up. You can be looking at medical bills, lost wages, physical rehab, surgeries, repeat doctor visits, pain and suffering, and emotional trauma. All of these can be eligible for compensation if your injuries stemmed from an accident that was not your fault.

Even if you have insurance coverage, it usually isn’t enough to fully cover everything you need for your injuries and recovery in the future. And, typically, the at-fault party’s insurance company will attempt to get you to settle for a much lower amount than you are entitled to. This is why you should consult with the Pittsburgh personal injury attorneys at DeRiso, DeRiso & Suhler as soon as possible after being involved in an accident. Don’t give up your rights to compensation. Put yourself in the sympathetic hands of the experienced lawyers at our firm.

What Expenses Does A Personal Injury Claim Cover?

Every personal injury case is different. However, common cases include things like car accidents, product liability, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, and even dog bites. When the justice system looks at a personal injury case, they typically examine compensatory damages, which cover a wide variety of expenses.

Tangible financial losses include:

  • Medical care
  • Costs for OTC and prescription drugs
  • Lost wages from being unable to work
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Future medical care, medications, and therapy
  • Long-term care

Then there are non-economic damages, for which your personal injury lawyer helps determine a financial worth. These include:

  • Permanent disability
  • Loss of social or educational experiences
  • Emotional damages

Your personal injury law firm works tirelessly to get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries — collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses, reviewing medical records, and devising the best legal strategy for your situation. We want you to focus on healing while we take care of the legal details of your case.
