Most individuals do not have the resources to hire an experienced Pittsburgh personal injury law firm to fully protect their rights. Most victims of a personal injury claim do not have the costs that are associated with the injury calculated into their monthly budget.  With the addition of the medical bills, lost wages, and other financial worries caused by the accident, life suddenly can become, very difficult.  Do not allow these obstacles to prevent you from hiring a law firm to assist you in obtaining the full amount that you are due under the law as compensation for your injuries.

We cover all expenses until the end of a case and then we are paid a portion of the funds recovered. If we are unable to recover compensation for you, you do not owe us a fee. This is called a “contingency fee” arrangement and is common among attorneys who handle injury cases.
