  • Nursing home negligence
  • Nursing mistakes
  • Surgical errors
  • Vaccination injuries
  • Medication and prescription drug errors
  • Birth defects

The Homyak Law Firm, P.C. meticulously establishes each element of your medical malpractice claim by conducting a thorough investigation and collecting crucial evidence to prove:

  • The accepted standard of care in the medical profession – Through expert testimony, we establish the actions a similarly qualified medical professional would have taken in comparable circumstances.
  • The doctor acted with medical negligence – We prove that the medical professional’s actions deviated from the accepted standard of care through such important evidence as the doctor’s notes, your medical records and witness testimony.
  • The extent of injury that occurred – Medical records, photographs, diagnostic tests and independent doctor evaluations can be used to prove the nature and extent of your injuries.
  • The doctor’s negligence proximately caused your injuries – We precisely link the doctor’s actions to your injuries and effectively challenge the common defense strategies that intervening circumstances or your own acts or omissions actually caused your injuries.
  • The amount of damages – The Homyak Law Firm, P.C. maximizes your damages awards for:
    • Medical Bills
    • Future medical expenses
    • Lost Income

Pittsburgh liquor liability lawyers representing your rights against irresponsible bars, intoxicated patrons and impaired drivers

The overconsumption of alcohol can turn a celebration into a tragedy.  Often the injured victims of overserving are innocent bystanders with no connection to the revelers or the establishment that served the alcohol.  The Homyak Law Firm, P.C. places blame where it belongs.  Our firm obtains full and fair awards for victims injured because of:

  • Assaults by intoxicated and violent bar patrons
  • Bars’ failure to ensure the safety of patrons
  • Overservice of alcohol to visibly intoxicated patrons
  • Accidents involving drunk drivers

Our analytical lawyers carefully evaluate all liquor liability cases to determine if multiple parties are at fault for injuries resulting from overconsumption of alcohol and its service to visibly intoxicated patrons.

To completely understand liquor liability issues requires extensive knowledge of blood alcohol content and effects on behavior, judgment, coordination and response time.  The attorneys at The Homyak Law Firm, P.C. recognize the tremendous impact alcohol has on a situation and view cases involving alcohol consumption through this insightful perspective.

Case study:  By pursuing the bar who served an impaired driver in a wrongful death case, The Homyak Law Firm, P.C. successfully turns the small amount of compensation available from the underinsured drunk driver into a high-verdict recovery from the establishment, hence obtaining justice for the family of the person killed.

Our analytical lawyers carefully evaluate all liquor liability cases to determine if multiple parties are at fault for injuries resulting from overconsumption of alcohol and its service to visibly intoxicated patrons.
