Car Accidents in Pennsylvania 

Car accidents land tens of thousands of people in the hospital every single year in the state of Pennsylvania. In just 2020 alone, in fact, it was reported that approximately 61,248 people were seriously injured in car accidents throughout the state. These accidents sometimes happen in the blink of an eye, even when they can be prevented. These accidents take on many different forms but rollovers are known for being some of the most catastrophic in nature. In just one recent year, approximately 2% of car accidents were deemed rollovers. If you have sustained injuries in a car accident that is not your fault, you should speak with an attorney who has your best interests in mind.

Nobody is ever fully prepared to face the aftermath of a car accident on their own. If you have been hurt in a collision, you should speak with a skilled Morton car accident lawyer that you can trust. An attorney can play an important role in every aspect of your claim. This is especially true if you have sustained serious injuries, including the following:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Organ damage

These injuries are sometimes so severe that they land victims in the hospital and cause them to miss out on time in the workplace. If you have sustained injuries in a collision, you should seek the immediate help of a Morton personal injury attorney.
