Proving Liability in a Munhall Personal Injury Case
Most personal injury cases require our attorneys to show negligence occurred, and this is the cause of our client’s injuries. We need to identify the negligent party and gather evidence to document how their careless or reckless actions led to the incident. There are four elements of negligence:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
In a car crash, the duty of care stems from traffic laws. All drivers owe a certain duty of care to others. When they violate the laws—breaching the duty—this can cause collisions. Our clients then suffer physical, psychological, and financial harm.
When we build these claims, we must investigate what happened and gather the evidence to show fault and liability. This differs depending on the circumstances but often includes:
- Official reports filed by a police officer or another first responder
- Eyewitness statements
- Video of the incident
- A scene survey
- Accident reconstruction
- Expert testimony or affidavits
- Our client’s relevant medical records
- Documentation of their damages
After we gather evidence and build strong support for a claim, we determine the anticipated value of the case. When we decide the best option is to pursue a settlement, we demand compensation from the liable party’s insurer. This often leads to settlement negotiations, and our attorney works out a fair and just agreement with the insurance carrier. This is a common way to wrap up these cases.
Sometimes, we need to sue the at-fault party. Suing allows us to ask a judge or jury to award compensation when necessary. Many cases still settle before the trial date arrives. However, we will litigate your case and represent you in court if necessary. Generally, Pa. C.S.A. § 5524 only gives us up to two years from the injury date to sue.

Wrongful Death Actions in Pennsylvania
If your loved one died from their injuries, your family could have options for seeking compensation.
Pennsylvania law generally requires these claims be filed by a personal representative of the decedent’s estate. This is often the party whom the court/law identifies to handle probate, such as the executor named in the will. While the personal representative files the case, it is filed on the behalf of the spouse, children, or parent of the decedent.
Our attorneys represent families in these cases. We can evaluate your options and explain how these cases work during a free consultation. Contact us to learn more.
