Types of cases our Pittsburgh personal injury lawyers handle
Most people will be involved in at least one car accident over the course of a lifetime. If you become injured due to another driver’s recklessness or negligence, you have the right to seek compensation from their insurance provider. Getting the full and proper amount of compensation to cover your medical bills, time missed from work, pain and suffering and related costs can require the help of an experienced Pittsburgh car accident lawyer. Car accident victims represented by a personal injury attorney statistically recover more than three times the compensation than those who go it alone. We represent drivers, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcycle riders who suffer serious injuries in auto accidents in Pittsburgh.
Many Pittsburgh personal injury law firms claim to handle truck accidents, but few have the decades of experience and industry knowledge it takes to win one. If you’ve been in an accident involving a large truck, you don’t just need a personal injury lawyer – you need a truck accident lawyer. The truck accident lawyers at Munley Law lead the nation in truck and tractor trailer litigation. We are the only firm in the United States with two lawyers who have led the American Association for Justice Trucking Litigation Group, and we were among the first lawyers in the country to be board-certified in truck accident law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. In 2020, Attorneys Marion and Daniel Munley received the AAJ Trucking Litigation Group’s Robert W. Munley Pursuit of Justice Award (formerly the Chairman’s Award), named in honor of their father, the founder of Munley Law. That kind of national recognition has come from decades of dedication to truck cases, and numerous multimillion-dollar wins for our clients.
If you were injured on the job and workers’ compensation has denied your benefits, a Pittsburgh personal injury lawyer at Munley Law can help. Under Pennsylvania law, most workers are covered under workers’ compensation if you become injured, ill, or aggravate a previous injury while performing your job duties. We have helped workers in all types of industries recover the compensation they are rightfully owed for their lost wages and medical bills.
Property owners in Pittsburgh have a duty to keep their premises safe and free of hazards for visitors and guests. If you were hurt at someone’s home, business, or public space, a Pittsburgh personal injury lawyer can help you prove liability and hold the negligent party accountable. Common premises liability cases include slip and falls, dog bites, being struck by a falling object, burn injuries, harmful exposure, and more. An experienced Pittsburgh personal injury attorney can help you determine if you have a case.
Pittsburgh is home to some of the state’s best medical facilities. Still, a serious medical error like a cancer misdiagnosis or birth injury can have life-altering or even deadly consequences. We work with medical experts and an on-staff doctor to review the complete details of your situation, study the medical records, and determine the best course of action.
If you lost a loved one because of another person or company’s negligent acts, a wrongful death lawsuit can hold them accountable for the harm they caused. In 2018, we reached one of Pennsylvania’s largest settlements of the year for our client who filed a wrongful death lawsuit following the loss of her husband.

The lawyer you choose to represent you can make a big difference in the outcome of your case. It’s important to choose a lawyer with years (or decades) of experience in personal injury cases, and in your case type in particular. Look to their settlements and verdicts to see what kinds of success they have had in the past. Consider their reputation – are they well-regarded in the legal community? Have they earned the honors, awards, and certifications available in their profession? At Munley Law, our lawyers have decades of experience handling complex personal injury cases, and bringing cases to trial.

What is the statute of limitations for Pittsburgh injury cases?
The statute of limitations refers to the limited amount of time you have to file a lawsuit after you experience an injury. For most personal injury cases in Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations is two years. However, it’s best to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. There’s no fee or obligation associated with the initial consultation, so don’t worry about calling too soon. Speaking with a lawyer will help you identify all of your options, and allow your lawyer to explain the steps to be taken before a case can be filed.
