Pennsylvania the site of car and truck accidents after storms

Over the past few weeks, Pennsylvania has been the target of several strong winter storms. This has led to multiple car and truck accidents on our roadways. In one that happened over the holiday weekend, a man died in such an accident. Reportedly he had gotten out of his vehicle to check out a disabled car when the crash occurred.

The man exited his car after pulling over to the shoulder of the highway. He walked to the left lane of the highway to check on a disabled vehicle that was stopped. However, a large truck-type SUV struck the man as he was on the road. As a result of the impact, he was taken to a local hospital where he died due to the injuries that he received in the collision.

Now, Pennsylvania authorities are investigating the fatal truck accident. In addition, they may be working to determine the cause of many of the other car and truck accidents that have recently taken place on our roads. As they do, in each case they may be able to assess not only what happened, but also who was responsible for the car or truck accident.

In some cases of a car or truck accident in our state, the victim of such an incident may be able to seek a claim under our personal injury laws. These laws can assist a victim in recovering some of the economic losses that they suffered during car or truck accidents. The claims can include wrongful death, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages. Though not always available, many who find that they have suffered injury can make claims for restitution against the driver at fault.
