Pittsburgh Attorneys Manage Car Accident Injury Claims
Preeminent representation for injured parties
Although Pittsburgh has largely traded in steel production for high-tech engineering, the Steel City still retains its blue collar character. Pittsburgh remains a sports town even as its burgeoning arts community gains more and more prominence. It’s a city of earnest working men and women who ask for nothing more than the opportunity to put in a hard day’s work for a fair return. But when an auto accident disrupts your life, prevents you from working and hands you an ever-increasing stack of medical bills, you need help to get that fair return. Fortunately, The McClelland Law Group is ready to assist. For more than 30 years, we have helped victims of car crashes throughout western Pennsylvania get the full, fair compensation they deserve.
Our Pittsburgh accident lawyers help maximize your claim
Filing an injury claim following a car accident may initially seem simple. However, the insurance industry is typically not in the business of paying full and fair compensation for your injuries without a substantial fight. It is important that you are fully aware of the extent of your injuries before you discuss any settlement in your case. Do not sign any statements or provide the defendant's insurance representative with a tape-recorded conversation. Insurance coverage is often complicated by questions of law and fact. Better yet, consult an established and reputable auto accident attorney at The McClelland Law Group. In every car accident case, our attorneys work to hold all responsible parties accountable and recover the maximum amount permitted under the law for our clients.
Thorough legal representation focused on results
In many cases, it is necessary to hire accident reconstruction experts to determine the cause of the crash and medical experts to evaluate the extent of your injuries. Our experts have investigated every conceivable type of motor vehicle accident, from multi-car pileups to head-on collisions, rear-end crashes and sideswipes. They can often tell if driver error was a factor or if a defective auto part or faulty highway design was to blame.
A high-speed collision on I-376, I-279 or a violent crash in an intersection can cause serious injuries, such as concussions and traumatic brain injury, spinal trauma, and compound fractures, resulting in permanent disability. We consult medical experts to get an accurate prognosis for recovery. We also may call upon economists to project future lost earnings and future medical expenses.
