Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, West Virginia & Ohio - River, Rail & Motorcycle Law Firm: Goldsmith & Ogrodowski, LLC

Based in Pittsburgh, PA, our attorneys represent individuals and families in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, and around the country who have been seriously injured or killed in accidents.  We know what you are going through.  We care.  We know how to win.  Let us help you.

We are:

We are experienced lawyers in towboat and barge accidents, drownings, pleasure boat accidents, tour and excursion boat accidents, and cruise line accidents.  We handle cases on rivers, lakes, and oceans in admiralty and maritime lawsuits under the federal Jones Act for negligence, and under the general maritime law for unseaworthiness and maintenance and cure.  We represent, among others, deckhands, mates, pilots, captains, engineers, cooks, tankermen, and their families.  The National Mariners Association includes G&O attorney Fred Goldsmith on its list of "Approved Legal Assistance for Mariners."

On the railroads in FELA (Federal Employers' Liability Act) claims, railroad track crossing collisions and accidents, and train derailments.  We represent, among others, locomotive engineers, conductors, brakemen, signalmen, yardmasters, maintenance of way workers, and trainmen and their families.

On and off the road in street bike / motorcycle accidents and dirt bike accidents, and also in scooter, Vespa, ATV, four-wheeler, or quad accidents.  Attorney Fred Goldsmith rides both street motorcycles and dirt bikes and knows the hazards riders face.

We know the hazardous work roughnecks, roustabouts, drillers, toolpushers and other rig hands perform and the dangers on oil and gas drilling rigs, including on the Marcellus Shale.  We understand oil and gas drilling rigs, operations, and terminology. 

We represent people in serious personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits, such as automobile accidents, industrial accidents, mining accidents.  When the cause of an injury or death is a defective product, we are experienced in researching the product and working with the right experts to investigate the product and how it may have been defectively marketed, designed, or manufactured.  And if you or a loved one has been seriously injured or killed in a car or truck accident in a roadway or highway construction zone, you may have a claim against the state or local government which awarded the contract, as well as against the contractor performing the work.  Feel free to call us to discuss the facts of your accident.

Individuals and companies, particularly in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio, may be interested in our attorneys' willingness to accept contingent fee commercial litigation lawsuits.  We represent plaintiffs in breach of contract, business torts (such as tortious interference with contract), and large judgment collection lawsuits.  Our lawyers also represent individuals in consumer protection lawsuits involving defective products, violations of state unfair or deceptive trade practices acts, and federal antitrust laws.

We represent insurance policy holders in insurance coverage and bad faith lawsuits and individuals and small companies in business formation and contract negotiation.  Fred Goldsmith has been asked to speak at seminars on the enforceability of indemnity and insurance clauses in contracts.
