The Pittsburgh Personal injury lawyers of The Law Firm Ogg, Murphy and Perkosky have the experience and resources to get you the compensation you deserve. A personal injury can leave an individual in a very difficult situation, and the injured person may even find themselves dealing with strong resistance when pursuing personal injury compensation. Our Pittsburgh area personal injury lawyers deal with a large variety of personal injury situations such as debilitating injuries caused by a vehicle accident, workplace injury, private property management, a hazardous product, or a variety of other things.

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.
