Do you live in Pittsburgh or one of the surrounding communities? Have you, or has someone you love, recently been involved in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence?

At KDS Legal, our talented and experienced team is here to help fight for the justice you deserve.
Do I Really Need an Attorney?
We hear this question often, and the short and simple answer is, “yes, you do.” In fact, second only to seeking immediate and adequate treatment for your injuries from a qualified medical provider, it is the most important thing you should do. If you’ve been involved in an accident, it is possible that the insurance company for the other vehicle at fault in the accident may have offered you some money. We understand that it may be tempting to accept that money because you simply want to move on with your life, and you feel that you need the money immediately to pay for medical expenses that you’ve already incurred. At KDS Legal, we would strongly advise against doing so without consulting an experienced Pittsburgh car accident lawyer.
Why? The unfortunate truth of the matter is that many insurance companies want to pay out as little money as possible. As a result, they will rarely offer you the policy limits. In fact, on most occasions, they will rarely offer you what you need and deserve to adequately pay for your medical care, compensate for your lost wages, and ensure that you don’t struggle financially in the future as a result of the accident.
What Kind of Damages Can I Recover?
As many people know, the law is complex. The law surrounding car accidents is no exception. That’s why you need a legal team on your side that understands the law thoroughly as well as the damages that you may potentially be entitled to. If you are the victim of a car accident, damages you may be entitled to recover include:
- Medical Fees: Many car accident victims incur significant medical expenses. These can include bills for treatment immediately after the accident and current expenses for ongoing treatment and/or physical therapy as well as anticipated expenses for future medical care that may be required.
- Lost Wages and/or Anticipated Future Earnings: If you’ve had to miss time from work as a result of your accident, you may be entitled to recover your lost wages from that time period as part of your claim. Additionally, if you are ultimately unable to go back to work for some period of time or possibly unable to return to work at all as a result of your injuries, your lawyer may make a claim for lost anticipated future earnings as well.
- Property Damage: This includes actual damage to your vehicle and any other valuable property that was damaged in the accident at issue.
- Pain and Suffering: While these damages are somewhat more difficult to place an exact figure on, they are no less important. Your accident may have diminished your ability to enjoy hobbies and activities and relationships that are important to you. You may be entitled to compensation for those losses in the form of a pain and suffering award.
These damages are a few examples of what you may be entitled to as a result of your car accident. Of course, the most important step to understanding what damages may be applicable in your particular circumstances is to call a knowledgeable and experienced Pittsburgh car accident attorney today.
