Below is some general information  to help you understand what types of compensation may be available to personal injury victims and their families.

Personal injury damage recovery is intended to "make the plaintiff whole" after a serious personal injury has taken place. Making an injury victim whole again is not always possible, and it can be very challenging to put a financial number on damages like physical and emotional pain and suffering. The goal is to put the injured victim back in place as if the accident that caused the personal injury never even happen to begin with. Our Pittsburgh Personal Injury Attorneys focus in doing this in the most effective way possible allowable under the laws of The State of Pennsylvania. The specific damages that are able to be obtainable in an injury claim can be different from one another depending on the type of case, the specifics of the injury incurred and many other variables.

The best way to determine what kinds of personal injury compensation you may be entitled to can only be determined by an experienced injury attorney with the knowledge and expertise to understand every aspect surrounding the cause of your injury, the extent of your injury and how it will affect the rest of your personal and working life. Experienced personal injury attorneys also have another skill set that includes strategically locating expert witnesses, such as surgeons, scientists, and other professionals to give their opinions on the matter.

The Pittsburgh Personal Injury Lawyers of The Firm, Ogg, Murphy and Perkosky focus in all major types of personal injury cases and have the incredible ability to give you the very personalized attention that large law firms are simply unable to provide. Many large personal injury law firms in Pittsburgh and across Pennsylvania may try to settle your personal injury case long before it is time. Our Pittsburgh injury attorneys never tell you to settle your personal injury case until it is time.

General car accident information to assist with your car accident case:

Who is the at fault party in the car accident?

Proving who is at fault is an important component in each and every car accident case. Proving who is at fault in a car accident will require a very detailed investigation of the car accident. The investigation will look at evidence, reports, and any other information surrounding the circumstances of the car crash.  Starting an investigation right away is very important and our Pittsburgh car accident lawyers understand the complex nature of car accidents. Our experienced car accident attorneys have both the experience and the resources to bring in experts and any needed accident reconstruction to demonstrate fault in a Pittsburgh car accident case.

What do you do after a car accident in Pittsburgh or South Western, PA?

After  a car accident, safety is your top priority in every situation. Only if it can be done safely, move your car out and away from the path of traffic. If your vehicle is severely damaged and you cannot drive it to the shoulder or to another safe location, you may be able to use your hazard lights and wait for help to arrive. If you are injured and cannot move but can reach your cell phone, call 911 for emergency assistance immediately. Otherwise, you should wait to call law enforcement until you have moved the vehicle to the shoulder and reached safety.

You must contact law enforcement after most accidents in Pennsylvania. 75 Pa. Cons. Stat. § 3746 – Immediate notice of accident to police department, states that a driver “shall immediately” and through the “quickest means of communication” provide notice to the police when:

 An injury has occurred to anyone at the accident scene.

A fatality has occurred because of the car accident.

If a car in the accident is in such shape that it cannot be safely driven.

In the case that anyone has been  injured or a death has occurred due to the accident, § 3744 – Duty to give information and render aid, requires the parties to remain at the scene and contact law enforcement. Furthermore, under this law a driver of any car involved in the accident has a legal obligation to provide name, address, license and registration with the other  parties who were in the accident as well. The driver of the car in the accident  must also provide insurance card information  to the other involved drivers.

If the Pittsburgh or Pennsylvania car accident involves damage to a car that is in a parking space, un-occupied car or truck, or to any other  property, the driver of the car also has a legal obligation to immediately stop the vehicle under § 3745 – Accidents involving damage to unattended vehicle or property.

As the driver who caused the damage to an un-occupied vehicle or property, you have the legal obligation to leave your information in an obvious location for the owner to find.


Am I able to receive car accident compensation for my injuries if I am partially at fault for the car accident? 

Pennsylvania is a Comparative Negligence State

DOCUMENTING YOUR PITTSBURGH CAR/AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT INJURY IS VERY IMPORTANT

The insurance carrier will strongly defend cases where the car accident injury is not well documented within a very short period of time from the car accident.  It is extremely important that every one of your car accident  injuries are documented by a doctors visit or emergency room visit immediately after the accident. The longer that you wait the weaker the car accident case can become.   Make certain that you tell the doctor everything that is causing you pain both physical and even emotional.  Even a small amount of pain or injury that at the time seems like nothing can get worse as time goes on and become serious. Do not leave any related car accident injury out.


Multi-Car Accidents

Multi-vehicle car accidents can become very complicated when compared to a single two car accident .  When Multi-Vehicle accidents happen it can seem overwhelming.  The most serious injuries often result from multi-vehicle accidents because many of these car accidents take place on a busy highway  or parkway and in some cases large vehicles such as tractor-trailers are involved.  For this situation it is important the seek out our experienced  car accident lawyers who are very experienced in multi-car accident injury claims.

Fee Structure for Pittsburgh Car/Automobile Accident Claims

Our car accident lawyers know that most people do not budget for a personal injury attorney. That's the reason we cover all expenses until the end of a case. We hire accident investigators, accident reconstruction experts and injury evaluators. We have a nurse on staff who evaluates your injuries and their financial impact, develops the case, and refers you to appropriate medical treatment if needed. When our Pittsburgh car accident lawyers obtain compensation for you, we are paid an agreed upon percentage of the funds recovered. If we are unable to make a recovery for you, you do not owe us car accident attorneys’ fees. This is called a “contingency fee” arrangement and is common among attorneys who handle injury cases. We will answer your questions regarding fees and the injury claim process in a free initial consultation. To speak with a skilled car accident attorney, contact us at Ogg, Murphy & Perkosky.

People Injured in Car Accidents

http://statelaws.findlaw.com/pennsylvania-law/your-pittsburgh-personal-injury-case-the-basics.html How long do I have to file a complaint?

The standard time limit for a personal injury claim in Pennsylvania is two years from the date of the incident causing the harm. There are some exceptions for minors, mentally impaired persons, and military. Remember, even if you have a legitimate claim you may be unable to ever receive compensation for an accident if you are late in filing.

How can I protect my rights?

Keep a journal and calendar: As soon as possible after the accident write down every important detail you can, including the harm that resulted and its effect on your daily life. Continue to keep notes as your claim progresses and keep track of dates including medical appointments.
Report the accident: Report the accident to the police, your insurance company or, in some circumstances, the person/entity you believe is responsible and get his or her name and address. If you are contacted by the insurance company which represents the responsible person, remember that it is best not to give the company a statement without first contacting a lawyer.
Preserve the evidence: Evidence is the strongest link to winning personal injury cases. Take photos or videos from all angles at the accident scene and of the damages suffered. If injured, consider taking photographs periodically of the injuries.
Obtain medical records: The federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) gives you the right to obtain a copy of your medical records from any medical provider.
Gather the necessary information. Obtain police reports and the identity of any witnesses (name, address, phone number).
