Ben is a founding partner of Kapusta Deihl & Schweers where he focuses his practice on personal injury, asbestos-related disease, and medical malpractices cases. Ben is a third generation trial lawyer who believes that effective legal representation is a fundamental right. Like his father and grandfather before him, Ben is dedicated to helping those who need both a voice and a guide through the legal system.
Ben’s maternal grandfather was a steelworker who suffered from some of the same types of illnesses for which Ben now fights.
Whether due to medical error or the negligence of corporations, Ben aggressively and effectively represents Western Pennsylvanians who experience catastrophic injury or death. A champion of victim’s rights, Ben knows that when you have been injured by another’s negligence, finding the right lawyer for your case can be an overwhelming process. Ben will handle all aspects of your case from beginning to end – he will sit at your kitchen table to explain the process of filing a lawsuit, and he will personally try your case in front of a jury.
