Motor Vehicle Crashes in Pennsylvania

Allentown, PA - Three Injured in Two-Car Collision at 26th & Emaus AvesAccording to the most current data from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, traffic analysts say that around 320 reportable traffic collisions occur in Pennsylvania on average every day. There are 184 injuries from those reportable collisions daily, or eight injuries every hour on average from car accidents.

A vehicle collision injury can have a catastrophic effect on your life. The financial hardship that follows a vehicle accident is often even worse, where victims deal with the constant stress or pain and hospitalization or the possibility of losing even more income while they heal.

This is part of why the goal of compensatory damages after a crash is to adequately reimburse the injured party for the losses they have suffered due to the wrongdoing or carelessness of another party that resulted in the vehicle accident. Damages seek to “make the injured party whole” by paying for a range of monetary and non-monetary damages that victims of auto accidents may sustain. In vehicle accidents, compensatory damages might consist of costs for medical bills, physical therapy, and more.
