The last thing you want to think about is that a negligent or careless driver will cause you harm when you are behind the wheel of your vehicle. However, if you need a car crash lawyer, we are ready to help.
At the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., we will investigate what happened and handle insurance companies and other parties involved. Our goal is to ensure that you get the compensation you need for all of your crash-related expenses.
Stop and consider the facts
We know that vehicle crashes happen. For the latest reporting year in Pennsylvania, there were more than 128,000 total crashes reported. Out of those crashes, there were:
- 1,137 fatalities
- Over 80,612 injuries
We also need to consider the following that resulted from vehicle crashes:
Vehicle crashes can cause major expenses
We realize that, thankfully, most vehicle crashes result in only property damage or minor injuries. However, have you seen the costs of an X-ray or a preventative MRI?
- Even minor injuries can put a financial strain on crash victims
We commonly see the following, much more serious, injuries as a result of vehicle crashes:
- Traumatic brain injuries/head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries/paralysis
- Internal organ damage/internal bleeding
- Broken or dislocated bones
- Severe lacerations or amputations
These injuries may require a crash victim to need extensive medical care and long periods of rehabilitation. Even then, they may be temporarily or permanently disabled. If a crash victim can no longer work and earn an income, they may not be able to support themselves and their families.
What if a crash victim can no longer do the things they love like exercise, go on trips, or spend time playing with their children?
What insurance companies often fail to take into account are the hidden costs of vehicle crashes.
The negligence or drivers
All too often, extreme driver negligence is the cause of a crash. This can include the actions of drunk drivers. For the latest reporting year, there were more than 10,000 alcohol-related crashes that were responsible for 26% of all traffic crash deaths in Pennsylvania.
We also know that distracted driving is a rising concern. As our phones become more and more of a lifeline, we are finding that drivers are busy watching videos, sending texts, or taking photos at the time of a crash.
