Mar 21, 2013 - Car Accidents
Residents of Pennsylvania might witness accidents on the roadway ranging from fender-benders to massive fatal accidents. Even in a car accident that involves only two vehicles, the damages could be immense, and the injuries could be severe. Early morning and evening commutes are often the culprits for incidents due to rush hour and the heavy traffic going to and from work. During these times, it is important that drivers watch their speeds as well as their distance between their vehicles and the ones ahead of them. An accident that occurs during high-traffic times can often lead to multi-vehicle accidents involving several vehicles and numerous victims.
An accident occurred in West Lawn and involved two vehicles. At around 9 p.m. on March 13, the two-car collision happened at Penn and Woodside Avenue. When emergency crews responded to the accident, they assessed those involved in the collision. One of the drivers was injured and was transported to the hospital. The seriousness of the injuries and the current conditions of the drivers are not known. Traffic remained tied up in the area for about 15 minutes while the accident site was cleared.
The cause to the crash has not been determined at this time, and details surround the incident have not be released at the time of this reporting. The investigation is ongoing.
A person injured in an accident like this could seek compensation through a personal injury claim. The suit could cover expenses such as medical bills, lost wages, damages and pain and suffering.
An injured victim in a car accident could incur several expenses and have a large financial burden after the incident. It is not only the person who is injured who can suffer from an incident. Family members could endure hardships if the injured person is unable to work while they recover.
