Injured in a car accident: dealing with the insurance company

Recovering from a car crash injury can be daunting, expensive and have a major affect on your daily life. Depending on the severity of your injury, the recovery process might be more extensive and require long-term treatment. Medical bills add up quickly and if you're not properly covered it can become financially devastating.

Dos and Don'ts after a car accident

After a car accident, you may be left shocked, shaken and worried about how you will recover from your injuries or damage to your vehicle. You can help your case by taking a few steps immediately after the accident to ensure you can receive the maximum compensation you deserve. There are also things you should avoid doing after an accident, because they could hurt your case.

Pennsylvania pedestrian killed in accident with bus

Of all the unfortunate types of motor vehicle accidents a person can suffer, pedestrian accidents are among the most devastating. Pedestrians are much more vulnerable to serious injuries or, in some tragic cases, death, than drivers and passengers who are protected by the safety features that are standard in most vehicles. When a victim is injured or a family member is killed in such an accident, victims and their families often demand justice. Thankfully, it is often possible to pursue legal action against a negligent driver.

Police look for hit-and-run driver in Pennsylvania accident

All car accidents have the potential to be deadly and destructive. However, there are certain types of car accidents that are, on average, more deadly and destructive than others. Many accidents involving great size disparities, such as accidents involving semi-trucks and smaller vehicles, can create large dangers. Similarly, car accidents involving pedestrians can be extremely dangerous for the pedestrian. Pedestrians are not protected by the safety features that are standard in most motor vehicles, and are extremely vulnerable to harm.

Car accident involving drunk driver leaves all parties injured

Drunk driving is a problem that government entities and law enforcement agencies attempt to tackle on a daily basis, and yet the impact of those efforts can sometimes seem minimal. The problem isn't just about the added criminal cases in an already overly burdened justice system; drunk drivers present a serious danger on the roadways of Philadelphia, both to themselves and to others.

First steps following a car accident

When a Pennsylvania resident becomes involved in a car accident, there are many things that may run through his or her mind. A car accident victim may worry about what actions are appropriate; he or she may feel scared and uncertain, maybe even temporarily paralyzed by these overwhelming emotions. Thankfully, there are general guidelines that a car accident victim can follow immediately following a car accident. What's more, attorneys are often available to assist with the legal actions a victim may wish to take some time after a car accident occurs.

Protecting the rights of car accident victims

Sometimes, a simple fender bender can evolve into a multi-vehicle affair. What starts with just two vehicles can eventually involve dozens, even hundreds of other cars. This can happen on busy highways, especially when the road conditions are icy and dangerous. When this happens, victims may be confused as to what actions are available to them. Thankfully, in many cases, it is possible for investigators to determine how the accident started, and if they started with the actions of a negligent driver, victims may have rights.

Protecting the rights of car accident victims

Pennsylvania residents often need to drive motor vehicles for a variety of reasons. Some need to drive to and from work, often for a lengthy commute, while others may need to drive to a nearby town to drop kids off at school or shop for groceries. Most of the time, it is possible to complete these tasks without any trouble. However, there are times when, while taking a routine drive, a driver is unexpectedly involved in a car accident. When this happens, there are many possible outcomes.

Helmet laws for motorcyclists in Michigan
