Richland, PA (May 23, 2022) – Fire crews in Upper Bucks County were called to the scene of a vehicle accident to extricate an injured victim from the cab of an overturned pick-up truck on Sunday, May 22nd in Richland Township. The patient was then taken to a local hospital.
It accident happened at about 8:30 p.m. on Route 309, in front of the Trainer’s Corner Shopping Center.
The other vehicle involved appeared to have sustained heavy front-end damage, although there was no word on the driver’s condition.
The cause of the collision is under police investigation.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Rollover Accidents in Pennsylvania
If you have been injured in a rollover accident and want to pursue damages from the negligent driver, you will be required to establish fault for the collision. If negligence is successfully established for a rollover crash, then the negligent driver will be liable for your damages.
Establishing fault can be relatively simple in certain situations but much more difficult to prove in others. If the at-fault driver has even the least competent of attorneys, they will attempt to shift as much of the blame for the crash as possible onto you and insist that you were wholly or partly to blame.
If the defendant is successful in pinning any portion of fault on you, it will negatively affect the amount of compensation you are entitled to.
You can help verify your version of events with various kinds of evidence, including:
- Pictures or videos of the collision scene, especially ones that show where the vehicles are positioned or any debris that was scattered
- Statements from witnesses
- A copy of your police report
- Pictures of the damaged vehicles
