Personal Injury

Western Pennsylvania attorneys fight to get justice and compensation

Auto accidents, product malfunction, and property neglect are among the leading causes of serious injury and wrongful death. At Strassburger McKenna Gutnick & Gefsky, our attorneys help victims attain a measure of justice and receive compensation for personal injury and wrongful death cases by holding those responsible—and their insurers—liable.

Talk with us before you speak with any insurer
