Most people in Pennsylvania don’t usually think of the potential danger they are in every time they get behind the wheel of a vehicle. But, that danger is there. In fact, motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death and serious injuries in America. We may do everything right ourselves when we are driving, but there are distracted, drunk or otherwise reckless and negligent drivers on the roadways with us. The potential for a personal injury incident is ever-present.
However, motor vehicle accidents aren’t the only type of accidents that could lead to a life-changing injury for a Pennsylvania resident. ATV accidents are, unfortunately, quite common, as are slip-and-fall accidents, dog bites and construction and other workplace accidents. Quite frankly, there are many different situations that we are all in, on a daily basis, that could lead to a personal injury incident.
Fortunately for most people, that incident never occurs. But, if it does, injured victims may have legal options to consider. If the accident in question was caused by another party’s negligence or recklessness, there is a possibility that a personal injury lawsuit could be filed. Such a lawsuit, if successful, could lead to an award of financial compensation that could be used to cover medical bills and other costs.
