When we set out in our vehicles, we know that there is a possibility that an accident will occur. That’s why we drive safely and get the required amount of vehicle insurance. Hopefully, an accident doesn’t happen. Most of the time, we get to and from our destinations safely. Unfortunately, we can’t control the actions of everyone on the road.

If you’ve been in an accident, you may need a car accident lawyer. If the other driver was at fault, let the Dan Doyle Law Group help you make sure you are taken care of, including any damages and injuries you sustain.

The Statistics

According to the latest statistics from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, there were over 35 thousand passenger car accidents and over 21 thousand accidents involving trucks, vans, and SUVs. These numbers don’t include accidents involving heavy trucks, motorcycles, and buses. Many of these crashes involved serious injuries and deaths.

Getting into an accident can be scary and leave you dealing with many things at once. Injuries need to be treated first. After that, you will have many questions.

  • Who was at fault?
  • Will I be able to get my vehicle fixed?
  • Will my injuries keep me from working?
  • Will my insurance cover all of this?

If the other driver was impaired by drugs or alcohol, or they were distracted because they were texting or watching a video on their phone, then their negligence contributed to your accident. You may be entitled to compensation beyond what the insurance company offers you. If you are struck by a commercial vehicle, the company that owns it could be liable for your injuries, especially if they failed to maintain their vehicles.

What To Do If You Get In An Accident

Not all vehicle accidents are caused by outright negligence on another driver’s part. We understand that. We also know that sometimes other drivers are reckless and put other people’s lives in danger. If you are hit by a negligent driver and have to miss work, the livelihood of your family could be in jeopardy. Worse, if you are disabled for a period of time, or permanently, you will need to know what happens next.

After an accident, seek treatment for any injury, no matter how minor it may seem. If you can, get photographs of the damage for your documentation. Make sure the police are notified and get copies of all reports related to the accident.
