- Bicycle Accidents
Millions of children and adults ride bicycles every day as a mode of transportation, for exercise or purely for enjoyment. The number of cyclists has risen over the years, which means that the number of bicycle accidents has also increased. Because cyclists are more vulnerable when sharing the road with much larger vehicles, they are at a much higher risk of serious injury when involved in an accident.
- Bus Accidents
Many people rely on buses as their mode of transportation to work, school, or travel destinations. If you have been injured in a bus accident, as a passenger, a pedestrian, a bicyclist or in another vehicle, consult with an experienced Philadelphia bus accident lawyer as soon as possible to evaluate your case.
- Motorcycle Accidents
Due to the nature of the vehicle, motorcyclists face unique risks when sharing the road, particularly busy highways. When a motorcyclist in involved in an accident, it can result in devastating, often fatal injuries.
- Pedestrian Accidents
Pedestrians accidents can occur anywhere from a crosswalk to a parking lot to a busy street. Children and the elderly are at particular risk for very serious injuries because they may be less likely to quickly move away from an oncoming vehicle. Head injuries, spinal cord injuries, limb amputation, paralysis and even death can result from a pedestrian accident. Consult a reputable Philadelphia car accident lawyer if you or someone you love has been involved in a pedestrian accident.
- Slip and Fall Accidents
When roads and sidewalks are slippery due to rain, ice or snow, slip and fall accidents are more likely to occur. This can be particularly dangerous if a person falls near oncoming traffic. If you or a loved one has been injured in a slip and fall accident, a Philadelphia accident lawyer can evaluate your case and make sure that you are compensated for your injuries.
- Truck Accidents
Commercial truck drivers must follow strict regulations that are enforced by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Nevertheless, too many tractor-trailer accidents occur every year that result in serious injuries and fatalities. Truck accidents often have several layers of liability, which requires a comprehensive understanding of the law.
- Wrongful Death
The loss of a loved one is devastating, and can be particularly difficult when the death was unexpected due to another person’s negligence while operating a vehicle. At a time when making important decisions can be overwhelming, an experienced Philadelphia car accident lawyer will handle all matters regarding your case, including fair compensation.
Car accidents are unfortunate realities that occur every day as the result of negligence. Drivers have a duty to obey traffic laws and operate their vehicles in a safe manner; however, this does not always happen. Many individuals engage in unsafe driving behaviors including drunk driving, speeding, ignoring traffic signals, drowsy driving and distracted driving such as texting, cell phone usage, eating, or changing the radio controls. These types of driving behaviors can cause serious catastrophic injuries to drivers, their passengers, individuals in other vehicles and pedestrians.
