Trusted personal injury attorneys in Pittsburgh
Every personal injury case is different. Some of our clients sustain injuries that will eventually heal; others come to us because their injuries are life-altering. Carmody and Ging can help when someone else’s negligence or carelessness caused you to suffer. Our Pittsburgh personal injury attorneys represent folks who have suffered:
- Nerve damage
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic amputation/ limb loss
- Traumatic brain injuries
Our team understands that injuries like these, especially when the victims are children, can affect every part of your life. We also know that in some cases, the complications of these injuries can lead to the death of your loved one. Our job is to make sure that the people who caused these harms are held accountable, and that you do not have to shoulder the financial burdens caused by them.
Representing victims of car, truck, and motorcycle accidents around Pittsburgh
In 2019, Allegheny County had the second-greatest number of vehicle accidents in Pennsylvania; 9.4% of all crashes in Pennsylvania happened here. In 2020, 5.3% of all fatal crashes in PA happened in our county, too. We point this out because auto accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and death in Pittsburgh (and around the Commonwealth). Our car, truck, and motorcycle accident attorneys represent folks whose lives have been turned upside because of:
- Drunk drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Bus accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Uber or Lyft accidents
- Uninsured/underinsured drivers
- Road defects
- Work zone accidents
Car accident claims can be complex issues, especially if there’s a commercial vehicle like an 18-wheeler or delivery truck involved in the crash. When you have multiple vehicles, or the crash involves an out-of-state driver, that can make the case more challenging, too. The one thing we know for sure is that no insurance company wants to pay you your fair share; sometimes, the only way to show you mean business is to have an attorney willing to go to trial on your behalf. Carmody and Ging will do whatever is necessary under the law to protect your rights and your future.
Injured on the job? Our Pittsburgh workers’ compensation lawyers can help
When you get hurt on the job, or develop a serious illness as a result of your work, you can make a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ comp is a no-fault system; in exchange for compensation for your medical bills and lost wages, you agree not to file a lawsuit. Simple, right?
But it isn’t always that simple, especially if your injuries turn out to be a little – or a lot – more serious than you thought. At Carmody and Ging, our Pittsburgh workers’ compensation lawyers can help you with every part of the benefits process, from filing a claim to appealing a denial. We represent you in hearings when your benefits have been cut off before they should have, and advise you regarding weekly payments or lump-sum settlements. We represent injured workers from every industry, including:
- Oil & gas
- Service & hospitality
Don’t see your career listed here? Don’t sweat it. We can still help. From crane accidents to trench collapse, from falls from heights to toxic exposure, Carmody and Ging can help.
