Data Relating to Automobile Crashes & Injuries in Pennsylvania

In Pennsylvania in 2014, the second most frequent kind of accident involving two autos was a collision that occurred when one vehicle rear-ended the other. On Pennsylvania’s roadways, where more than 20,000 accidents involving several vehicles take place annually in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, every driver on the road should exercise an increased level of caution.

Driving without due care and attention almost invariably results in a collision with the vehicle in front of you. The majority of rear-end crashes in the state of Pennsylvania are caused by drivers who disregard the regulations of the road, such as stopping at stop signs. In some instances, it is crystal evident who is at fault in a rear-end accident, yet in other situations, the sequence of events that led up to the disaster is still a mystery.

It is common practice to disregard the damage to the car’s back when the front end of the vehicle has been harmed. However, the possibility of tragic outcomes in situations like as head-on crashes cannot be ruled out. Accidents of any severity, including those that take place in the back, have the potential to inflict substantial bodily harm and expensive property damage.

When you are rear-ended by another car, the speed of the other vehicle at the moment of impact is the primary factor that determines the severity of your injuries. The majority of rear-end crashes take place as a result of a driver quickly applying the brakes, which causes the car that is behind them to smash into them. In addition, even low-impact collisions, such as a bumper-to-bumper scuffle, may result in life-threatening injuries. For instance, the seat automatically reclines to a more upright position when the safety belt is attached. If you are moving at a high rate of speed and strike your seat or headrest, it might have significant repercussions, some of which may not become apparent for a number of hours or days.

If a victim of a car accident is rendered permanently unable to work as a result of their injuries, an insurance company may look for ways to get out of paying for long-term care or for lost revenue and earning potential by looking for loopholes in the law. It is possible that one of the steps in this process will include determining why the person did not bring on their own injuries.
