Rear-End Car Accident Lawyers Recover Just Compensation For Accident Victims

It seems not a day goes by without the report of a car accident on Pennsylvania’s roadways. But the frequency of these accidents in no way diminishes their impact on the lives of car accident victims and their families.

The aftermath of a rear-end car accident can be traumatic, confusing, and life-changing. Injuries, hospitalizations, damage to the vehicle, the cost of medical treatment, and lost time at work are just a few of the consequences of a car accident.

At Purchase, George & Murphey, P.C., our skilled car accident attorneys understand. Our dedicated team fights for the rights of rear-end car accident victims and works tirelessly on their behalf to recover just compensation for their injuries and other losses.

Pennsylvania Rear-End Car Accident Claims Must Be Based On Negligence

Personal injury law is an area of law that is designed to provide protection to individuals who have been injured in accidents — including rear-end car accidents — that are the result of another person or entity’s negligence. Negligence is the foundation for every type of personal injury claim; without demonstrated negligence that caused or contributed to the accident, there is no basis for the claim.

In the case of a rear-end car accident, negligent behavior may include distracted driving, speeding, driving recklessly, driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs, violating traffic laws, and failing to adhere to standard safety measures. It is not unusual for the party that is at-fault for an accident to claim that you are at least somewhat responsible for causing the accident. If you believe that you do, in fact, share some level of responsibility for the accident, it is best to consult with an experienced car accident attorney.

Victims Of Rear-End Accidents In Pennsylvania May Receive Compensation For Their Accident Injuries And Other Losses

If you have been injured in a rear-end car accident that was the result of another person’s negligence, you may file a personal injury claim in the Pennsylvania courts. Personal injury law protects those who are harmed in accidents due to negligence, providing a method for the injured party to seek compensatory damages for their injuries and other losses. Compensatory damages are not intended to punish the at-fault party. Rather, compensatory damages are designed to reimburse the injured victim for the harm they endured in the car accident and to restore them to the condition they were in prior to the car accident.

Those who have been injured in rear-end car accidents may seek compensation for losses including — but not limited to — any of the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Expenses for surgery
  • Hospital bills
  • Cost of rehabilitation
  • Future anticipated medical expenses that are the result of the accident
  • Cost of prescription medications
  • Expenses for lab work and imaging tests
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost future earning capacity
  • Lost wages due to time away from work
  • Loss of enjoyment in life
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of earned sick time
  • Loss of earned vacation time

When a loss does not have an exact financial value, such as the loss of one’s life enjoyment or emotional pain and suffering, the court will consider several variables and assign a monetary value to that loss.
