Pennsylvania Serious Injury Lawyer

Pittsburgh Amputation Attorney

Serious personal injury cases often present special issues to be resolved for the victims. Sometimes in such cases the defendant’s liability is clear, and the main issue may involve determining the extent and permanence of the victim’s injuries. In such cases we often counsel our clients against accepting early settlement offers – even if quite large – until the full nature and extent of the injuries are known and the complete level of damages established. Contact the Pennsylvania serious injury attorneys at Joyce & Bittner in Pittsburgh for help from lawyers experienced with handling cases involving disabling or permanent injuries.

The serious injury lawyers of Joyce & Bittner focus on maximizing your total compensation through settlement or trial so that you can concentrate on your physical recovery. We can pursue legal claims for those who have suffered serious injuries, including:

  • Severe burns through electrocution, explosion, or fire
  • Head injuries of all kinds, from traumatic brain injury to serious closed head wounds
  • Amputation of arms or legs
  • Spinal cord injuries resulting in paralysis
  • Extensive scarring or disfigurement from lacerations, burns or dog bites
  • Permanent, chronic, or recurrent illnesses or major organ damage caused by exposure to toxins or hazardous chemicals in the workplace or elsewhere

Committed to Recovering Full Compensation for Your Injuries

Since 1989, our lawyers have provided sound legal strategies for persons who have suffered serious injuries in cases involving dangerous or defective products, construction accidents or disabling workplace accidents. As we work toward obtaining compensation for your losses, we are careful to avoid the risk that an early settlement will later prove to be insufficient to cover the actual costs of your medical treatment, adaptive technology or ongoing home care. We work to maximize your compensation after a serious accident by pursuing all avenues of liability and potential monetary benefits, including:

  • Workers’ Compensation Benefits: When a client is injured at work, we work to recover rightful workers’ compensation benefits for medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.
  • Social Security Disability Claims: We work with your doctors to document the extent of your medical condition and how the condition renders you incapable of working. We pursue Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits to provide income for permanently disabled clients.
  • Third Party Personal Injury Claims: We hold negligent drivers, product manufacturers, property owners and other negligent parties accountable for their negligence in personal injury and wrongful death claims.

We engage the necessary experts at the early stages of your lawsuit. We will monitor your condition, convalescence and requirements for future treatment. Our lawyers make sure that every aspect of your losses in health, future income and quality of life are properly assessed and documented. We understand that your prospects for a full physical recovery might remain unknown until after a sequence of surgeries or a long period of rehabilitative therapy.
