Erie County Car Accident Lawyers

Talented Car Accident Lawyers Fight to Hold Careless Drivers Responsible for Their Actions in Erie County, PA Accident Cases

Despite a number of technological advances supposedly designed to prevent car accidents and make vehicles safer, car accidents happen every day.  When a car accident causes the driver or passengers to suffer serious injuries, the emotional and physical toll caused by the accident can be extremely overwhelming.  Unfortunately, establishing liability after a serious car accident that causes injuries can be much more complex than it may initially appear. Negligent drivers frequently deny responsibility for a crash that they have caused, and the insurance companies may even accuse you of contributing to the cause of the accident.

Determining How an Erie County Car Accident Occurred

Car accidents occur every day in Erie County and each accident involves a unique set of circumstances that coincided to cause the crash.  Car accidents commonly result when:

  • A driver disregards traffic laws, whether by speeding, running a red light or abruptly changing lanes in an unsafe manner,
  • Technology distracts the driver, such as when the driver takes a phone call, texts and drives or is distracted by a GPS device,
  • The driver operates the car while under the influence of alcohol or drugs,
  • A defective component of the vehicle causes the car accident,
  • Fatigued driving causes the driver to make an error in judgment.

About Erie County, PA

Erie County, which was named for Lake Erie, is one of the largest counties in Pennsylvania.  Originally settled in the early 1800s, a large portion of Erie County was taken from Allegheny County.  In the late 1700s, significant disputes arose as to whether Erie County belonged to New York or Pennsylvania and required the federal government’s intervention to resolve.  Today, Erie County is the 11th most highly populated municipality in the state of Pennsylvania and is home to about 280,566 residents.  A number of major highways cross through Erie County, including I-79, I-86, and I-90.
