Automobile Accidents & Injuries in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

Regrettably, rear-end collisions were the second most common kind of accident involving two automobiles in Pennsylvania in 2014. Because over 20,000 incidents involving several cars occur in Pennsylvania yearly, every motorist should drive with extra care.

Careless driving nearly always leads to a collision with the vehicle in front of you. The majority of rear-end collisions in Pennsylvania are caused by automobiles failing to heed stop signs. In some circumstances, it is clear who is to blame in a rear-end collision; in others, it is unclear what happened before the catastrophe.

It is normal practice to neglect the rear of a car when there is damage to the front. Despite this, there is still a potential for these events, like head-on collisions, to end in deaths. Even modest rear-end incidents may cause catastrophic injuries or considerable property loss.

When another car collides with yours from behind, the degree of your injuries is determined mostly by the speed of the other vehicle at the moment of contact. The majority of rear-end collisions are caused by one motorist suddenly stopping, causing the vehicle behind them to slam into them. When driving in a traffic jam, the forward momentum of the automobile in front of you may assist you in maintaining your own forward motion. When someone fastens their seat belt, the seat automatically adjusts to a more reclined position. Crashing into a seat or headrest while driving at high speeds may have devastating consequences, some of which may not be apparent for many hours or days.

If you were not the cause of the accident but were gravely hurt as a consequence of a rear-end collision, the individual responsible must pay your medical bills and lost income.

If a person is wounded in a vehicle accident and is unable to return to work as a consequence of the injuries, the insurance company may attempt to find any reason to avoid paying for long-term care or reimbursement for lost income and earning potential. This might involve looking for a rationale why the person’s injuries were not their fault.
