Have You Experienced A Life-Altering Injury?

In motor vehicle collisions, construction site injuries, defects involving heavy machinery, chemical exposures and other accidents, the consequences can last a lifetime, while the initial compensation may only last a few months or years. We can help you seek compensation for yourself or your loved one that reflects the consequences of catastrophic injuries such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Loss of limb
  • Paralysis
  • Death

When these or other injuries are the result of someone else’s reckless or negligent actions, we are here to help you earn the settlement you need to make ends meet now and in the future.

The Guidance You Need for Your Claim

Not everyone has the legal standing to file a claim after a tragic accident. Our attorneys can offer their proficiency in advising who is eligible to file a lawsuit or claim on behalf of a deceased or permanently injured person.

In a personal injury claim, the plaintiff can seek compensation for the costs of their injuries, including lost income, medical expenses, loss of earning potential, relocating or renovating to accommodate a disability, scarring, disfigurement, psychological injuries, and pain and suffering.

In a wrongful death claim, fair compensation includes the lost future income of the decedent, as well as retirement contributions, health coverage, loss of consortium and more.

When Phillips Froetschel, LLC, takes a client’s case, our team does everything in our power to maximize the compensation they receive. From gathering evidence like medical documents and witness testimony to consulting with adept witnesses, no effort is out of the question for our clients.

What The Injured And Their Loved Ones Should Know

There is a lot that victims and their families should know about catastrophic accidents, and we want to provide you with this vital information as soon as possible.

You Can See Your Own Doctor

After a catastrophic injury, it is important to continue seeing your own trusted medical professionals. When you have built a relationship with your primary doctor, they will be able to recognize the total consequences of your accident best, moreover, their medical records before and after the accident can help attest to the full damage of your injuries.

Document Everything

Keep a detailed record of your medical treatments, expenses, related police reports and any changes in your condition. These and other relevant documents can be essential in building your compensation claim and establishing the full extent of the consequences of your accident.

Seek Legal Advice Early

Contacting an attorney as soon as possible can significantly impact the outcome of your claim. The sooner you reach out to our Pittsburgh office for the personal injury representation you need, the sooner we can take the legal obligation of your claim onto ourselves and let you focus on your healing process. Our guidance can also help you avoid costly mistakes like accepting a lowball compensation offer.

Compensation For Caretakers

Your compensation claim may also be able to provide money for the caretakers of your accident. If your injuries have caused your loved ones to experience lost wages, renovation or relocation costs, or other expenses related to caring for you, we can fight for a settlement that reflects those costs.

Mental Health Support

Catastrophic injuries often have significant psychological impacts, which are often overlooked after treating the physical injuries from your accident. Additionally, caregivers can also experience mental anguish after seeing their loved one in so much pain. When therapy or counseling is necessary to manage the anxiety, depression, stress and other mental damage from your accident, your claim should cover those expenses as well.

We Fight for Justice. We Fight for You.

Even when insurance offers you a settlement for the accident, you may still be able to get more than their initial offer. Let us act on your behalf in your claim while you focus on recovering from your injuries or loss.
