How a Lawyer Can Help You
We want to help your family any way we can. A lawyer can help you in a variety of ways, including the following:
Proving Liability for Your Injuries
We will do this by proving that:
- The negligent driver had a duty of care to you. For example, drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles safely.
- The negligent driver violated this duty of care. A driver was texting behind the wheel.
- This violation caused or contributed to your accident. The texting driver did not see you crossing the street and hit you.
- The accident caused you losses (such as injuries or pain and suffering). The accident left you with medical bills, an inability to work, and pain and suffering.
Negotiate with Insurance Companies for You
A Crafton, PA personal injury lawyer from Berger and Green can walk you through talks with insurance companies while you heal from your injuries. Many insurance companies will look to pay personal injury victims as little as possible. At Berger and Green, it is our goal to see you secure a settlement offer. To avoid the costs of going to court, Berger and Green may be able to help you earn compensation from your personal injury claim outside the courtroom with a settlement offer.
Adhere to Statutes of Limitations
A personal injury lawsuit must be filed within two years of the accident, according to Pa. CSA § 5524. You may forfeit your right to pursue damages after this period of time. However, Berger and Green can help you identify some factors that may impact this time period. We may be able to take swift action to stay within this timeline.
Build Your Personal Injury Case
A lawyer can help you to build your case against a negligent party when you suffer injuries through no fault of your own with critical evidence.
Some examples of evidence we can collect as we build your case include:
- Medical documents
- Surveillance video
- Police reports
- Eyewitness statements
With this evidence, Berger and Green can identify and build a case against a potentially liable party.
It is important to act as soon as possible following your injury so our team of personal injury lawyers can prove negligence, liability, and related damages that you directly suffered from. Call Berger and Green at (412) 661-1400. After your free consultation, Berger and Green can reach out to you and your family for potential next steps.
