There is never a good time for a car accident. In fact, being involved in a car accident can completely derail the plans you had for your day, and possibly even your week, month, or years to come, depending on your level of injury. Accidents and unintentional injury are the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. – and among car crash statistics, distracted driving is one of the top causes for accidents.
HURT IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT? OUR WEST CHESTER AUTO ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS CAN HELP
Although we hear a lot about car accidents in the news or may know people who have been in a car accident, we do not expect to be in a car accident ourselves. But unfortunately, it can happen, and it does happen more often than most people may think. In just the United States, there are over 6.7 million car accidents each year, according to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Our auto accident lawyer in West Chester, PA, knows that the vast majority of these accidents are due to another person’s reckless or careless conduct that needlessly harms innocent people.
This is why our experienced auto accident attorneys at the Luongo Bellwoar Law have dedicated our practice area to representing personal injury victims hurt by the negligence of another person, business, or government entity. We will not let reckless and careless drivers get away with hurting innocent people and not paying their fair share for medical bills, lost wages, and for a victim’s pain and suffering.
