Every day millions of Pennsylvania residents use our state’s roadways and, perhaps without a second thought, they are, in those moments, potentially in life-changing danger. While we are all focused on our own daily tasks – getting to work or school, running errands, etc. – there are those who are not fulfilling their duty to others and, instead, are driving vehicles while intoxicated, distracted, or are otherwise breaking the traffic rules.
Most motor vehicle accidents are so-called “fender benders.” But, we all know that motor vehicle accidents can be deadly – these incidents are one of the leading causes of death and injuries throughout the country. Each year millions of Americans lose their lives, or their loved ones, in motor vehicle accidents. For the millions more who survive these incidents, the life-changing impact of severe injuries can be tough to overcome. That is when personal injury lawsuits might come into play.
Pursuing legal options
Any of our readers in Pennsylvania who are familiar with personal injury lawsuits probably know that many of these types of lawsuits are, in fact, based on motor vehicle accidents. But, we also know that these “accidents” actually don’t occur without fault, in most cases. Negligence and recklessness play a huge role in most motor vehicle accidents that occur on the roadways in Pennsylvania and throughout the country, whether they are auto-pedestrian accidents, truck accidents, commercial vehicle accidents, or even motorcycle accidents.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by another party’s negligence or recklessness, you may have legal options to consider. At our law firm, we do our best to help our clients as they pursue their legal rights. For more information, please visit the personal injury overview section of our law firm’s website.
