Car Accidents in Pennsylvania
Each year, more than 100,000 motor vehicle crashes occur in Pennsylvania. Nearly 60 percent of total accidents reported result in injuries for at least one person involved. In many cases, accidents are entirely preventable. We continue to see people hurt due to drivers who are reckless and negligent while operating their vehicles.
Leading factors in motor vehicle crashes that take place in our state include:
- Driving while impaired
- Driving while texting, eating, or otherwise distracted
- Driving at too high of a speed
- Driving recklessly (weaving between lanes, tailgating, etc.)
Many drivers do not realize the devastating consequences that their actions can bring until it is too late. Victims who are involved in car crashes are often left with severe spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, bone fractures, and other significant injuries that impact their lives forever. Victims often have to deal with overwhelming physical, emotional, and financial consequences. There are many instances where victims are forced to go through care extensively following their accidents.
