Our Law Firm Can Help You Build a Strong Case for Financial Compensation
Our law firm will compile evidence, consult medical experts, and obtain relevant reports to support your claim. We compile the evidence into a case file and use it to negotiate a fair and appropriate settlement. We will also:
- Calculate your damages to give your case a value
- Handle all case-related communication
- Prepare and file your lawsuit, if necessary
- Comply with all notification and filing deadlines
We know how hard it is to feel in the dark about your case, so we provide you with updates as we receive them.
Berger and Green Will Prove the At-Fault Party’s Financial Liability
When you pursue an at-fault party for financial compensation, you have to prove their negligence led to the incident. Our team’s familiarity with state and local law means we know how to prove:
- The at-fault party owed you a duty of care. For example, the responsible party is the property owner at your apartment home.
- They breached their duty of care. The property owner didn’t post warnings about an unsafe stairwell they knew was dangerous.
- Their negligence caused the incident. You had an accident because you were uninformed about the danger of the stairwell.
- The incident has harmed you. You suffered injuries and other losses as a result of the incident.
Proving these required components of negligence can be difficult on your own. It can be even more difficult if you are simultaneously recovering from injuries. Let our law firm handle it for you. We will thoroughly investigate your accident and compile the supporting evidence you need.

- Medical bills that document your treatment costs
- Employment records that prove your loss of income, if applicable
- Witness statements that prove objective details, if applicable

Personal Injury Statutes of Limitations in New Kensington, PA
The statute of limitations puts a time limit on your case for the state in which your accident occurred.
According to Pa. C.S.A. § 5524, in Pennsylvania, you generally have:
- Two years from the date of the accident to file your personal injury lawsuit
- Two years from the date of a loved one’s demise to file your wrongful death lawsuit
If the applicable statute of limitations expires, you could be left with no legal avenue to pursue compensation. When our law firm represents you, we will not let that happen.
