Levittown Car Accident Lawyer

You’re on your way to work in the early hours of the morning, or you’re taking the family for a day at Sesame Place Philadelphia. You expect normal traffic and to get to your destination safely. What you don’t expect is to be involved in a vehicle collision.

According to 2022 data from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), there were 5,533 traffic crashes reported in Bucks County. Of those, 2,455 were injury crashes, and 50 were fatal. Bucks County is listed as the fourth-highest county in the state for both reported traffic crashes and traffic-related fatalities.

No one expects to become involved in a collision, and for that very reason, it’s essential that you reach out to a Levittown car accident lawyer immediately following your crash. You may have suffered injuries or be confused as to what your next steps should be, and we want you to know that here at Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan, we’re here to help. We offer free consultations during which you can ask an attorney any questions you may have, so reach out to us for that meeting now.

What Happens After Your Wreck?

The immediate aftermath of any vehicle collision can be confusing and traumatic. You, your passengers, and the occupants of the other vehicle might be injured, and chances are likely that your vehicle and any others involved will be damaged, and you may not know what you’re supposed to do next.

First, ensure that you and others involved in the accident are in a safe location where there is no further risk of being struck by other traffic. Call the local police to the scene and make sure the 9-1-1 operator is made aware of any injuries and if your vehicles are blocking traffic.

If you are able, you should also do the following:

  • Exchange insurance and contact information with any other drivers involved
  • Take pictures or video of the scene of the accident and the damage to all vehicles involved
  • Gather witness statements and contact information
  • Get the police report number so that you can receive a copy of the report when it is ready
  • Contact us at Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan

Injuries That Auto Collisions Cause

Any vehicle collision can result in severe injury, even wrecks that you might think are minor. It’s always best to get yourself and any passengers thoroughly examined by a medical professional as soon as possible after your car accident to make sure there are no unseen injuries.

Some of the most common injuries our office has seen are:

  • Minor cuts or bruises
  • Sprains
  • Head injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Internal damage
  • Neck or spine injuries
  • Crush injuries

Even if you are uninjured or suffered only minor cuts or bruises, you should still get checked out by a doctor and keep a record of all medical bills to give to your attorney.

Why You Should Hire an Attorney After a Levittown Car Crash?

Most people aren’t experts in vehicle collisions, and if you’re looking at pursuing legal action against the at-fault driver, it’s in the best interest of the success of your case to hire a Levittown car accident lawyer.

Your lawyer can assist you in gathering all the documentation needed for your claim such as photos of the scene, witness statements, police reports, copies of your medical bills, vehicle repair estimates, and anything else relevant to your claim as well as make sure your claim is filed within the two-year statute of limitations.

Insurance companies are known for attempting to lowball car accident victims or deny claims entirely. You can count on any Levittown car accident attorney you work with to speak to the adjuster for the at-fault driver’s insurance company on your behalf to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for the injuries you’ve suffered.

Compensation Available in Pennsylvania Car Crash Cases Like Yours

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of quality of life

Funeral and burial costs may also be recoverable if you file a wrongful death claim.
