Teen injured in Pennsylvania car accident

Sadly, negligent drivers plague Pennsylvania’s roads. These errant drivers can turn a routine drive or walk into a nightmare in the blink of an eye, leaving unsuspecting individuals injured in their wake. Pedestrians are especially susceptible to harm as they do not have the protections afforded by seat belts, air bags and metal framing. Thus, when a pedestrian is hit by a negligent driver and suffers a serious injury, he or she should take legal action.

A lawsuit may be on the horizon for a Pennsylvania teen after he was hit by a car as he walked with his friends. The 14-year-old victim was rushed to the hospital with broken bones. Fortunately, he was last reported to be in stable condition. Police say the driver hit a snow embankment, and then struck the teen. The driver tried to flee the scene, but was unsuccessful. Drugs and alcohol, according to police, have not been ruled out as a contributing factor in the accident.

A car accident victim can face a long, hard road to recovery. Sometimes he or she will never reach a full recovery. In either situation, the process of healing, both physically and emotionally, can be difficult. Pain, stress, depression, and immobility can overwhelm a victim, only to be further exacerbated by extensive medical bills. To help put a victim’s mind at ease, a personal injury attorney can advocate for him or her and seek to recover damages.

A lawsuit against a negligent driver is often the best way to recover compensation. The defendant’s negligence must be shown to have caused the victim’s injuries, but if a jury finds these elements existed, then compensation may be awarded to the victim. This money can be a life-saver, allowing the victim to obtain the best medical care possible while compensating for his or her pain and suffering.

The battle to win a personal injury lawsuit can be ferocious. Yet, an aggressive Chambersburg attorney can represent a Pennsylvania victim to fullest extent, giving him or her the best possible chance of victory.
