Understanding Pennsylvania Laws On Car Crashes
Accident law in Pennsylvania involves a combination of “no fault”
and “at fault” insurance claims. Under the law, “no
fault” insurance benefits include medical expenses and lost wages
incurred as the result of an accident. “At fault” or “liability”
benefits include non-economic damages such as pain and suffering and mental
anguish. In some cases, the negligent driver lacks sufficient liability
insurance coverage to fairly compensate the injured consumer. In such
cases, you will need a knowledgeable lawyer to identify other sources
of insurance coverage and ensure that the financial compensation you receive
is fair and just.
Pennsylvania car crash lawyers have handled tens of thousands of these cases throughout the state since
1922. We understand the laws inside and out.
Were You Injured by a Drunk Driver?
DUI accidents are difficult for the victim because these types of accidents
are typically preventable had it not been for the driver choosing to drive
drunk. During 2014, DUI accidents accounted for 31 percent of all traffic
related deaths with 9,967 losing their lives in DUI accidents. Per the
NHTSA, 3 of every 10 people in the U.S. will be involved in an alcohol-related
car crash at some time. Our drunk driving accident attorneys fight for
clients injured by negligent drivers operating a vehicle under the influence
of alcohol or drugs.
We fight to recover the maximum compensation for the following:
- Pain & suffering
- Hospital & medical bills
- Therapy & rehab expenses
- Lost wages & earning potential
- Mental anguish
- Loss of companionship
If you or a member of your family has been injured by the negligent actions
of a drunk or otherwise impaired driver, contact our team today. We know
this situation can affect your health and your future.
Other Common Types of Car Accidents
Head-on collisions can be one of the deadliest types of car accidents.
The NHTSA reported 141,000 head-on collisions in 2014. In a head-on collision,
the front of the vehicle can crush passengers, pinning them between the
dashboard and the seat. The force of the impact can also throw them from
During 2014, there were a little over 6 million vehicle accidents according
to the NHTSA. Of that number, nearly 2 million crashes were rear-end collisions.
A rear-end collision occurs when the car in front suddenly stops or the
car in the back suddenly speeds faster than the car in front. In almost
all cases, the car in the rear is blamed for the crash. Reasons for rear-ends
include distracted driving and following too closely.
Commercial Trucks Accidents
Accidents caused by large commercial vehicles are catastrophic for passengers
of other vehicles. In more than 70% of
truck accidents, the injuries and fatalities are passengers of the other vehicles. A typical
passenger vehicle simply cannot withstand the impact from a tractor-trailer;
therefore, the occupants are severely injured. Because insurance companies
aggressively fight truck accident claims, victims should contact a Harrisburg
truck accident attorney as soon as possible to protect their rights.
Distracted Driving Accidents
Distracted driving is becoming one of the most common reasons for car accidents.
Distracted driving due to texting and other distractions is increasing
in number throughout the United States. Over 400,000 people were injured
and almost 3,200 people lost their lives in distracted driving accidents
Education is one of the most effective tools to fight distracted driving.
