Using Pittsburgh Personal Injury Attorneys

Personal injury attorneys in Pittsburgh, PA can serve as a great resource to injured people beyond legal representation. In medical malpractice, legal malpractice, and products liability cases the first question that must be answered affirmatively is whether an expert believes the facts were negligent or the product was defective. Nothing else matters until that question is answered. Personal injury lawyers will get that question answered and, usually, at no cost to the injured person. This is a great way for people hurt by the questionable actions of others to gain peace of mind about the circumstances surrounding their injury. Was this just an accident, some kind of really bad luck, or was this something that could have been avoided had someone else been a little more careful? When in doubt, contact an established personal injury attorney to see if you have a case.

Though I am reminded of this often, it just dawned on me again yesterday as I was helping my client settle a wrongful death medical malpractice lawsuit. While we were discussing the amount of money she was willing to accept in light of the facts of the case she, in passing, mentioned that originally she had never considered a lawsuit. But when she went to open an estate for her son her attorney began to ask questions about the circumstances surrounding her sons death. At no charge to her, the attorney began an investigation of the case and as a result, it was later detetermined that her son's death was likely caused, at least in part, to a hospital's carelessness in reaching a differential diagnosis. Not only did she wind up securing a sizable settlement but, more importantly, she learned a great deal about what actually led to her son's untimely death.  She gained peace of mind for free.

The bottom line is that if you have a question on a friend or family member's can't hurt to ask an attorney about it and, in most cases, obtain a free investigation. Share this post :
