Pennsylvania’s Car Crash and Injury Rate
Rear-end accidents were the second most frequent kind of accident involving two vehicles in Pennsylvania in 2014. Every driver should be extremely careful on Pennsylvania’s roadways, where over 20,000 accidents involving several vehicles occur each year.
Careless driving almost always results in a collision with the car ahead of you. Disobeying stop signs is the leading cause of rear-end crashes in Pennsylvania. In some cases, it is evident who is to blame for a rear-end accident, while in others, the events leading up to the disaster are unknown.
When the front of an automobile is damaged, it is customary to disregard the back. However, deadly outcomes in instances like as head-on collisions are still possible. Accidents of any severity, especially those at the back, may result in serious injury and expensive property damage.
When another car hits you from behind, the severity of your injuries is mostly decided by the speed of the other vehicle at the moment of impact. The majority of rear-end crashes occur when one driver abruptly stops, forcing the car behind them to collide with them. Furthermore, even at low speeds, fender benders may result in severe injuries. When the seat belt is fastened, for example, the seat reclines automatically. If you hit your seat or headrest while driving quickly, you might face serious repercussions, some of which may not become apparent for hours or days.
If you were not at fault for the accident but had serious injuries as a result, the person who caused the collision may be forced to pay your medical expenses and lost income.
If a driver is permanently disabled as a result of their injuries, an insurance company may look for loopholes to avoid paying for long-term care or lost income and earning potential. Even if the victims’ injuries were not their fault, businesses and major insurance conglomerates may try to avoid paying in order to protect their bottom line.
