Teens and young adults are statistically more likely to be injured or killed in a car accident than many other age groups. There are several reasons for this. Many admit to driving while talking or texting on their phone. Some get behind the wheel under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Others are fully attentive, but are inexperienced and not prepared for the mistakes other drivers make. Weather conditions can also be a contributing factor, as well as the overall condition of the vehicle. With a limited income and higher auto insurance rates, many teens and young adults take to the roads in older cars that are within their budget, and that may not respond as quickly as newer cars. In the recent Philadelphia case, the vehicle was approximately eight years old.
While the families of both teens are most likely distressed, but it is important that they speak to a Philadelphia car accident lawyer immediately. A Philadelphia car accident attorney can step in and bring in a top accident reconstructionist to ascertain the true cause of the crash. The personal injury lawyer in Philadelphia will look into others that might share the responsibility, such as a bar, and even the city if the accident occurred because there was not adequate lighting in the area or the road was not properly maintained. And in many cases the lawyer can negotiate a settlement that can help the victim or family deal with the pain and suffering they experience, or see that if the survivor has a long term disability that future medical treatment can be pursued in the years to come.
Philadelphia car accidents result in a variety of injuries of different severity, and personal injury attorneys will listen to the facts for every case and help injured persons get compensation. Many personal injury and wrongful death lawyers pursue work on their cases on contingency, and don't ask for any fees until the case is over.
