Car Accidents in Pennsylvania
Every year, Pennsylvania witnesses over 100,000 motor vehicle collisions. A substantial proportion, nearly 60 percent, of these reported incidents result in injuries to at least one individual involved. In many cases, these car crashes are entirely avoidable. Unfortunately, we continue to witness individuals left suffering due to drivers who operate their vehicles with recklessness and negligence.
Some of the primary contributing factors to motor vehicle crashes within our state include:
- Driving under the influence
- Engaging in distracted activities like texting or eating while driving
- Displaying reckless driving behavior, such as weaving through lanes and tailgating
- Traveling at excessive speeds
Often, drivers fail to comprehend the severe and significant consequences of their actions until it is too late. Individuals affected by car crashes frequently endure severe spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, bone fractures, and other substantial harm that permanently alters their lives. The aftermath for victims involves overwhelming physical, emotional, and financial burdens. Many victims find themselves undergoing extensive care in the aftermath of their accidents.
