Pennsylvania Car Accidents & Victim Injuries
Rear-end collisions were the second most common kind of automobile accident in Pennsylvania last year, according to statistics and study conducted on the state’s roadways. Every motorist in Pennsylvania should exercise extra care on the roads since every year there are more than 20,000 accidents involving several cars.
Rear-end accidents are a regular result of careless driving. Most rear-end collisions in the state of Pennsylvania are caused by drivers who disobey traffic signals by passing through red lights or stop signs. Sometimes it’s crystal clear who was at fault in a rear-end collision, while other times it’s not at all apparent what happened.
The degree of injuries sustained in a rear-end accident is largely determined by the speed of the other vehicle at the moment of contact. A sudden stop or halt is the most prevalent cause of rear-end crashes, which occur when one car collides with the vehicle behind it.
If you were critically hurt in a rear-end collision that wasn’t your fault, the person who caused the accident should cover your medical bills and lost wages.
Insurance companies may try to avoid paying for long-term care or compensation for lost income and lost earning potential if a policyholder is permanently disabled as a consequence of injuries received in an automobile accident.
