Where Injured People Come First

Holding Reckless Drivers Accountable

It only takes a moment to cause an accident with a lifetime of consequences. When someone else’s reckless or negligent actions cause you or a loved one to suffer serious injuries, they need to be held liable for the cost of their actions. Thankfully, you can have a skilled attorney by your side to help you pursue that goal.

With decades of combined experience at our disposal, Laura Phillips and Joe Froetschel are ready to help you overcome the challenges of your personal injury claim.

Common Causes Of Car Accidents In Pittsburgh

While some car accidents happen purely by chance, many happen because one driver acted with negligence in some way. Some of the most common causes of car crashes include:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving, such as texting and driving
  • Speeding, running red lights, tailgating and other forms of reckless driving
  • Mechanical failures due to defective parts, failure to maintain the vehicle or poor workmanship

Misconduct like this is preventable, but too often, drivers choose to disregard their duty to others on the road to be safe behind the wheel. Many negligent drivers are truckers or others in the course of their work duties. We will help you identify who is responsible for your injuries and pursue the necessary compensation.

The Consequences Of Getting Into A Serious Collision

Not all traffic injuries heal with time. Permanent disabilities can rob you of your independence, ability to earn a living and care for your children, dignity and quality of life. We can help you pursue rightful compensation for severe injuries of any type, including:

  • Back and spinal injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Chronic pain
  • Crushed and amputated limbs
  • Broken bones
  • Any other serious wounds
  • Fatal injuries to a loved one

Without legal action against the driver and their insurance company, you and your family could struggle to afford your medical bills, equipment such as wheelchairs, and even basic necessities like your home and groceries. This should never happen to someone injured by a negligent person or business.

What a Claim Is Worth

One of the first things our clients often want to know is how much they can get from their claims. Because every case is different, no universal amount applies to everyone. What we can tell you is that our goal is to maximize your settlement so that it covers the current and future costs of medical expenses, lost income, property damage, loss of earning potential, loss of bodily function, noneconomic damages like pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and anything else that may have come from your injuries.

How Do Our Lawyers Help?

After your accident, you may have already received a settlement offer from the other driver’s insurance company, so you may think, “Why do I need an attorney?” Insurance companies often try to act quickly to convince accident victims to accept a lowball settlement offer. Laura and Joe can act on your behalf to negotiate for a fair value in your case. We can also help you avoid mistakes that may cost you your compensation and minimize the wait time to receive the money you deserve.

Our clients work directly with Laura and Joe, award-winning attorneys who have been consistently selected for inclusion on Super Lawyers and have obtained the highest possible ratings for legal ability and ethics through Martindale-Hubbell. They have also been inducted into the Academy of Trial Lawyers of Southwestern Pennsylvania and the Academy of Trial Lawyers of Allegheny County.
