Auto Accidents in Pennsylvania
Suffering serious injuries or even losing a loved one in a fatal accident is an unimaginable tragedy that no one should have to experience. The heartbreaking reality is that it happens far too often, with over 1,100 deaths each year in Pennsylvania alone. Various acts of negligence continue to contribute to the number of accidents that take place in Pennsylvania every year. Some of the most common causes of these accidents include failing to yield. For instance, when drivers do not yield to pedestrians who are passing in the area nearby, they can strike them and cause severe or fatal injuries.
Moreover, distracted driving is a major cause of far too many accidents. It is common for drivers to cause serious injuries that have devastating consequences for others if they ignore roadway conditions or their surroundings in general. Distractions are one of the leading causes of crashes. People text, talk to others, or even eat while driving.
