Car Accidents in Pennsylvania
According to statistics, approximately three people lose their lives each day in Pennsylvania due to motor vehicle accidents. These incidents are often unpredictable, yet we continue to see the reckless actions of others claim innocent lives. When victims lose their lives in collisions, due to the gross negligence or reckless actions of another motorist, they may be interested in pursuing legal options to get justice for their loved one. Not only do traffic collisions claim the lives of thousands of people each year, but they leave many more with debilitating injuries.
Being involved in a motor vehicle accident can have a life-altering impact on a person’s life. Regrettably, these accidents happen far too often in our state. In fact, more than 80,000 people are injured in motor vehicle accidents throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania each year. Although many of these accidents result in minor injuries, many people are left with life-altering injuries that impact their abilities to live and work. Numerous people have to go through extensive medical treatment and spend months in therapy.
