Multi-Vehicle Accidents in Pennsylvania

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.

Adding insult to injury, distracted driving is a significant cause of far too many accidents. Drivers frequently inflict severe injuries with catastrophic outcomes on others through their lack of attention to the road ahead. Distractions such as texting, playing with the radio, talking on the phone, and even eating while behind the wheel are a significant factor contributing to accidents.
