Philadelphia Car Accident Lawyers
Most motor vehicle accidents are the result of negligence or recklessness by one of the drivers involved. The more severe the crash, the more likely that you or your passengers may be suffering from injuries and facing other troubling consequences. Car accidents are the most common type of motor vehicle accidents and are often caused by the following:
- Aggressive driving
- Distracted driving
- Drowsy driving
- Drunk driving, DUI/DWI
- Failure to signal
- Poor weather conditions
- Reckless or careless driving
Serious injuries can result from all types of car accidents, such as hit-and-run accidents, rear-end collisions and multi-vehicle crashes, so it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Remember that with some injuries the severity of physical damage may not manifest immediately, so what appears minor in the aftermath of the accident may become worse and leave you with unexpected medical complications. In some car accident cases one of the drivers is liable; in others it may be roadwork or defective car parts. Regardless of liability, our skilled Philadelphia car accident attorneys are here to help you get the treatment and compensation that you need for your personal injury. We will guide you through every step of your case.
When you are involved in a car accident, you may be in shock and overwhelmed by the severity of the crash. You or one of your passengers may be injured. While it is understandable that you may not function at your best after this type of trauma, it is extremely important to document the accident as best as you can. With enough evidence to support your case, your lawyer will be able to recover the optimal compensation to cover your injuries, medical expenses, the loss of income you may experience, and the pain and suffering you may endure. Retain any medical bill you receive as well as car repair receipts to include for your attorney.
Other types of motor vehicle accidents include: boating accidents, bus accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, and accidents involving Uber and Lyft drivers. This may involve a pedestrian hit and run, a truck accident, a bike-car collision, a bus accident, a drunk driving accident or a motorcycle crash. If the traffic accident was caused due to a defective product such as a tire blowout or an air bag malfunction, the case would fall under the law of product liability. Car accidents can result in serious injuries such as broken bones, neck/back/spinal cord injuries, and even wrongful death. In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations in which to file an accident claim is two years in most cases, so do not delay contacting an attorney for assistance.
