Our Mount Lebanon, PA, injury law firm handles cases involving motor vehicle accidents, premise liability, workers’ compensation, medical malpractice, Social Security Disability, and several others areas. To learn more about how we can help in your personal injury case, read about some of our practice areas below:
Constantly struggling with traffic, the Pittsburgh area sees hundreds of serious car accidents every year, many involving severe bodily injuries and even death. No matter the circumstances of your accident, a Mount Lebanon personal injury attorney from Berger and Green can take on the insurance companies and make sure you get paid what you deserve.
Many of the worst motor vehicle accidents in the Pittsburgh area, in terms of bodily injury and property damage, involve large commercial vehicles. Due to the large size and weight of these trucks, it is hard to emerge unscathed from an accident with one.
In an accident involving an 18-wheeler, the trucking company is often liable for the driver’s actions under Pennsylvania’s vicarious liability laws. That means we can pursue those companies for compensation. Since trucking companies typically have a much greater financial responsibility than their drivers, we have a better chance of maximizing your recovery.
Uber and Lyft Accident
An Uber or Lyft can be a lifesaver when trying to get back to the suburbs after a night out downtown. These ride-share vehicles also contribute to traffic congestion in the area and are involved in accidents every year.
If you were involved in an accident caused by an Uber or Lyft driver, whether as a passenger of the ride-share vehicle or as an occupant of another car, we can help you recover compensation. These companies have added a new wrinkle to the already-complex traffic liability laws in Pennsylvania, so it is important to go with an attorney who has an established track record of winning compensation for people injured in Uber and Lyft accidents.
In Pennsylvania, property owners and managers often bear liability for slip-and-fall accidents that occur on their premises. If they were aware of a hazardous condition and did not fix it in a reasonable amount of time, and the condition caused or contributed to a slip-and-fall injury, the injured party can sue them for compensation. The Mount Lebanon personal injury lawyers at Berger and Green have helped many clients recover substantial compensation for slip-and-fall injuries on both residential and commercial property.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Carbon monoxide is known as the “silent killer” because it is invisible and odorless. Most victims are unaware they have been exposed to it until it is too late. That is why the building codes are starting to require carbon monoxide detectors, according to 2013 PA Act 121. equipped in most residential and commercial buildings. If you or someone you love sustained injuries or perished due to carbon monoxide exposure, we can help you pursue compensation from the responsible party or parties.
When consumer products injure or kill customers, the manufacturer sometimes bears liability. Product liability laws in Pennsylvania are very strict. If you were using the product for its intended purpose and did not materially alter it from its original form and were injured, there may be a case against the manufacturer for damages.
The Pittsburgh area, with its winding highways and stunning skyline views, is one of the best venues in America to cruise around on two wheels. When an accident occurs, though, the motorcyclist usually suffers the most. Injuries can be devastating and disabling.
The Mount Lebanon, PA, injury lawyers at Berger and Green will help you recover the compensation you deserve from the other driver and the insurance companies.
Even if the cause of your injury does not appear on the above list, we want to hear from you and learn how we can help.

If Injured by Someone Else, You May Be Entitled to Damages
In personal injury cases, victims of negligence are permitted to receive damages for their injuries and losses. “Damages” is a term that refers to the sum of money you are entitled to due to your injuries. All personal injury cases involve compensatory damages. This category of damages awards money to victims based on what they have lost in an attempt to make up for it.
Compensatory damages include economic damages and non-economic damages:
- Economic damages compensate an injury victim for financial losses they would not have incurred had they never been harmed by someone else’s negligent actions. Specific items that cost you money are added up to arrive at a compensation amount for economic damages. Special damages can be quantified as there is usually some form of paper trail associated with them like a receipt, bank statement, or medical bill.
- Non-economic damages are subjective and broad in nature, making them more complicated to calculate. Because there is no intrinsic monetary value in pain and suffering, determining these damages means assigning a value to them.
We may be able to help you collect a settlement or award that includes money for :
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Mental pain and suffering
- Physical pain and suffering
- Shame and humiliation
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
