Serious Car 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 1100 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: When drivers do not yield to pedestrians who are passing in the area nearby, they can strike them and cause severe or fatal injuries.
- Distracted driving: It is common for drivers to cause serious injuries that have devastating consequences for others if they don’t pay attention to the road ahead. Distractions are one of the leading causes of crashes. People text, talk to others, or even eat while driving.
