Car Accidents in Pennsylvania

Major cities throughout the state of Pennsylvania see more car accidents than many other areas. This is due to the fact that large amounts of traffic can contribute to accidents caused by distractions, speeding drivers, and more. Philadelphia, especially, witnesses a large number of car accidents every year. In 2016 alone, statistics showed that approximately 12,189 car accidents took place in Philadelphia County due to careless drivers. Nobody ever expects to get behind the wheel of a car and become involved in a car accident but this is an unfortunate reality that many individuals face every year. Because of this, you should speak with an attorney that you can trust in your time of need.

Being injured in a car accident can be a difficult thing to face on your own. Because of this, you should speak with a skilled Philadelphia car accident attorney soon after your accident. An attorney will be able to play a vital role in your claim. This is especially true if you have sustained any of the following injuries:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Fractures

These injuries are sometimes so severe that they land victims in the hospital and cause them to miss out on time at work. If you have been affected by a car accident on this level, you should speak with a Philadelphia personal injury lawyer immediately.
