Aggressive Representation for Victims Injured in Motor Vehicle Collisions

Which Pittsburgh Attorney Is Best for Car Accident Injuries?

Many people do not call a personal injury attorney right after a car accident because they believe that the insurance company will settle their claim promptly and fairly.

Unfortunately, this is far from what normally happens. Insurance companies tend to look after their own bottom line, putting their own financial well-being ahead of the injured victim. Getting an attorney involved after an automobile collision ensures that your legal rights are protected, you are properly guided throughout the legal process, and you receive the compensation you deserve for the injuries you sustain.

There are many attorneys in western Pennsylvania who represent auto accident victims. Few, however, have handled the thousands of cases and delivered the results that the attorneys of Schiffman Firm have. Car accidents and auto collisions are complex legal matters – Schiffman Firm has the experience to help ensure you receive any compensation to which you may be entitled.

Texting While Driving, Speeding, Manufacturer Defects

What Are Some Common Causes of Car Accidents in Pittsburgh?

With nearly 9 million licensed drivers in Pennsylvania, it’s easy to understand that there were over 104,000 automobile crashes1 in the year 2020.

While the statement “accidents always happen” can be valid in many arguments – as a victim of a car accident due to negligence it becomes very clear that many vehicle collisions and accidents could have been easily avoided if all drivers handled their motor vehicles properly and respected the rules of the road.

The team at Schiffman Firm recognizes that even the most diligent of drivers can find themselves on the wrong end of a car or automobile accident due to negligent individuals on the other side of the road. Also, it’s easy to forget that sometimes new and used car dealerships as well as car manufacturers can find themselves responsible by failing to uphold certain safety measures, sometimes sending defective cars out to consumers – which can cause other motorists to suffer harm.
