Building an Indiana, PA Personal Injury Case with Our Team
Personal injuries generally occur because of someone else’s negligence. One person makes a careless or reckless mistake, and another suffers physical, emotional, and financial harm. To win one of these cases for our client, we need to show negligence occurred. This requires us to provide evidence to show:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
In other words, we need to show that one party caused the incident or accident, which led to the other party’s injuries. Our team knows how to do this in almost any injury incident.
When you work with Berger and Green, you can trust your Indiana, PA personal injury attorney to manage all aspects of your personal injury case. We investigate what happened, gather evidence of fault and liability, and ensure we have strong support for your case. Then, we employ strategies to help us recover the money you deserve based on your economic and noneconomic damages. These could include:
- Medical bills
- Tax records to show missed income
- Other documents showing expenses or losses
Once we have a strong case and understand the possible settlement range of your case, we have two options:
- Demand the insurance company representing the at-fault party pay appropriately
- File a lawsuit in an Indiana County court and prepare the case for trial
Most cases settle without going to trial. This is true even in cases where we file a lawsuit. Instead, the liable party or their insurer agrees to pay a sum within our fair settlement range.

Damages Potentially Recoverable with Our Indiana, PA Personal Injury Lawyer
Each personal injury case has many unique factors that make it substantially different from others. For this reason, we cannot estimate how much your case might be worth. There is simply no way to know the potential value of your expenses and losses early on.
As our team navigates the process of building a strong case, we gather evidence of the client’s damages, too. This allows us to determine their expenses and losses. Using this evidence, along with expert assessments and other proof of future and intangible damages, we estimate a value for the settlement. Then we know when the insurer is offering enough.
The potentially recoverable damages in these cases frequently include:
- Medical bills
- Future treatment and care costs
- Related expenses
- Income losses, current and future
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering and other intangible losses

Understanding the Timeline for an Indiana, PA Personal Injury Lawsuit
Generally, we need to move as quickly as possible after an incident causes your injuries. We know you need money to pay bills, and we can often build a stronger case when we work quickly. A lot of evidence disappears in the first days and weeks following an injury accident. This includes video, eyewitness statements, and evidence from the scene.
Most cases settle without going to trial, but we prepare each claim like it might. We want the strongest evidence possible to support our case against the negligent party. Then, if we need to sue, we already have much of the evidence necessary to hold the at-fault party legally liable.
A two-year deadline usually applies in personal injury cases in Pennsylvania, under Pa. C.S.A. § 5524. We ensure our clients meet this deadline when possible. This is essential in protecting their right to fair compensation.
