Car Accidents in Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania is no stranger to traffic accidents. Each year, tens of thousands of people are hospitalized with significant injuries as a result of vehicle collisions. There are many accidents that take place in the Philadelphia area that are caused by negligence. Some of the leading factors that we see in car crashes across our area include:
- Distracted drivers: Distracted drivers are a growing problem on the roads. With the dramatic increase in the use of cell phones and other electronic devices, more and more drivers are taking their eyes off the road to look at something else.
- Impaired drivers: Drunk driving is obviously a major problem, but there are other types of impairment as well. Drivers who are taking certain medications may be impaired, as may those who are tired or simply not paying attention. Any type of impairment can make it difficult for a driver to react quickly enough to avoid an accident.
- Drivers who fail to yield: Drivers who do not give other drivers the right of way when they should can and often do cause serious accidents. These accidents commonly occur at intersections, while switching lanes, and in other busy areas.
