When you have suffered injuries in a car collision, medical treatment, chiropractic care and pain management counseling may be very costly. You need to hire the right personal injury attorney in Pennsylvania who will walk you through every step in the litigation process providing you the highest level of legal representation. Not every attorney is prepared to litigate a car collision case. Some car crash lawyers are comfortable settling a case and will not be aggressive enough to take it to court. However, this may be detrimental to the amount of money damages the injured person receives. The Lassen Law Firm is prepared to litigate car collision cases for its clients, because our Pennsylvania car accident lawyers believe that sometimes the full and fair compensation is available only in court. Contact the Lassen Law Firm now to see how we can help.

Negligence and Vehicle Accidents

It is an unfortunate fact that negligent behavior is the cause of many vehicle accidents. This could happen because someone takes the wheel when incapacitated from drinking or drugs. Truck drivers often have problems with fatigue. A momentary lapse of attention as drivers use a cell phone, computer or even talk with other passengers can result in an accident. Texting is another cause of vehicle accidents.

Anything that causes a driver to pay less attention to their driving skills can result in an accident and injury to innocent others. Product failures that cause injuries can result from negligence in manufacturing or installation. Sometimes it takes legal detective work to uncover the responsible parties, but your personal injury attorney is experienced and able to do this job for you.

Personal Injuries from Vehicle Accidents

The types of personal injuries that result from vehicle accidents vary from minor to devastating. People depend on safe products and that everyone behind the wheel gives full attention to their driving skills. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and many bodily injuries occur, including the following:

  • Head, neck and spine injuries
  • Amputations of limbs
  • Cuts, bruises, abrasions
  • Serious injuries that require surgery
  • Wrongful death
  • Medical expense
  • Work loss

Long Term Effects

Many accident injuries are not minor and may cause long-term effects that are a financial disaster as well. You may require immediate medical attention, including surgery. On top of your medical problems and expenses, your vehicle or other property may also be damaged beyond repair. Long-term effects and expenses can be staggering:

  • Immediate loss of income from being unable to work temporarily
  • With severe injuries, you could lose your job or capability to work
  • Hospital and doctor bills
  • Expensive long-term medical care
  • Rehabilitation
  • Retraining for new work
  • Permanent disability or death

A car or truck injury can disrupt your lifestyle completely, causing you pain and suffering, and leaving you unable to enjoy your previous hobbies or other activities. Long-term accident effects bring you unexpected expenses and cause you other personal problems.

Personal Injury Lawyer Philadelphia

Under Pennsylvania Personal Injury Law, you are entitled to seek fair compensation for your car and truck accident injuries. It is most important that you contact your personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Your personal injury attorney can bring in expert witnesses to calculate things like future medical costs and income losses.

Obtain all the information you can from the accident scene, including photos and witness information, but do not speak about your injuries to anyone other than your doctor before you talk to your attorney. The reason for this is that insurance company representatives only want to save money for their client companies, not you.
