Aggressive Car Accidents Attorney Fighting Insurance Companies on Behalf of Pittsburgh Drivers

auto accident / collisionIt is an unfortunate fact of life that most people will be involved in some sort of car accident over the course of their lives. If you’ve ever been in an accident, you know how quickly it can happen and how severe the impact can be. We help clients who have suffered injuries in car accidents that were caused by the mistakes of another driver get the compensation they deserve.

What Kind of Compensation Can I Get?

The specifics of your injuries determine what you should be compensated for and how much you should receive. The other driver’s insurance company needs to pay you for any medical expenses that occurred as a result of your injuries both at the time of the accident and throughout your recovery. If your injuries keep you from going to work, they also need to recoup your lost wages and offset any degradation of your income earning potential. In serious or traumatic situations you may also be able to sue for compensation for pain and suffering.

Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?

Unfortunately, insurance companies employ strategies for preventing payouts as best they can. In an ideal world you would submit a claim and receive the compensation you deserve, but most times it’s not that simple. Insurance adjusters will try to confuse you, trick you into admitting fault or taking an early settlement offer that isn’t enough to cover all of your expenses. We have extensive experience handling stubborn insurance companies, many of which are more likely to offer appropriate compensation when a personal injury attorney is present.

The Law Office of Michael L. Studd believes you should be compensated for your injuries and loss of income due to another driver’s reckless behavior.
