If you were injured or lost a loved one due to the negligence of a driver, doctor, employer, manufacturer, or property owner, we can help you. A Brentwood personal injury lawyer from Berger and Green can determine if you are eligible for financial recovery.
While each personal injury case is different, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical costs, time missed from work, and your pain and suffering.
Building a case for compensation is often difficult. You do not have to bear this burden alone. Call Berger and Green now for a free case evaluation at (412) 661-1400.
Types of Injury Cases We Handle
Our team handles all types of injury cases for injured parties in Brentwood:
Whether you or a loved one was injured in a truck, car, motorcycle, bicycle, or pedestrian accident, we can help. You may be able to hold the at-fault driver accountable for your injuries and related expenses.
Slip and Fall Accidents
A slip and fall accident can result in serious injuries. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), falls are a leading cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Your legal team will fight to hold the property owner liable for your damages.
Every product in today’s market must undergo testing before being released to the public. If you or a loved one were using a product as instructed and suffered injuries, you could hold the product’s manufacturer liable. From malfunctioning baby items to exposure to cancer-causing chemicals, a Brentwood personal injury lawyer can help you pursue justice.
Unfortunately, entrusting your health concerns to a medical professional sometimes results in new and unnecessary problems. Medical errors such as a misdiagnosis, being prescribed the wrong medication, or surgical mistakes can compound your health problems. We want to help regardless of how your injury occurred.
While you cannot sue your employer if you are injured while on the job, you still have options for financial recovery. A Brentwood personal injury lawyer can help you file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits or pursue damages from another party.
If you or a loved one experienced serious harm in any of the above situations (or one we have not included here), take action now. Call Berger and Green for a free case evaluation at (412) 661-1400.

Compensable Damages in a Personal Injury Claim
One of the first options for compensation your Brentwood personal injury lawyer will exhaust is the liable party’s insurance company. After calculating the cost of your incurred expenses, your legal team will approach the insurance company with a figure that represents the scope of your losses.
Many personal injury claims, according to the American Bar Association, are settled out of court. In an ideal situation, the insurer would offer you a settlement that leaves you with no out-of-pocket expenses. However, not every case is as simple.
If the insurance company denies liability or offers an unfair settlement, then you have the option of taking your case to court. Under 42 Pa. CSA §5524, you generally have two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit.
Should your case be successful, you may be able to recover the cost of:
- Your medical bills, including those for anticipated procedures and treatments
- Lost income, if your injuries resulted in missed time from work
- Reduced earning capacity, if your injuries caused you to take a job that paid lower than the one you had before the accident
- Pain and suffering, which accounts for the physical pain and emotional suffering of your injuries
- Emotional trauma
If you are a qualified representative, and you are filing a wrongful death claim on behalf of a decedent, beneficiaries could recover the cost of:
- The decedent’s medical bills
- Funeral, burial, and memorial expenses
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of household benefits and parental guidance
- Loss of income
You may be able to recover the cost of damages that we have not listed here.

We Work on a Contingency-Fee-Basis
Do not let fears associated with cost prevent you from pursuing legal action for your injuries. At Berger and Green, we work on a contingency-fee-basis. When you hire our legal services, you owe us no money upfront.
There is no deposit or any other financial commitments on your part. At the beginning of our partnership, your lawyer will explain that they get paid for their services out of the settlement or court award they get for you. This is a mutually agreed-upon percentage so that there are no surprises. If your lawyer cannot get compensation for you and your family, then you do not owe any attorney’s fees.
