The results of auto accidents, workplace accidents, and other situations where people are injured through the carelessness of others can be devastating to victims and their families. To make matters worse, not only are injuries emotionally tolling, the medical bills and other financial implications can be overwhelming. That’s why those who have received injuries due to the negligence of others deserve full compensation for their suffering.

Sure, many people like to have a fun night out talking and laughing with friends over drinks. But when a person gets behind the wheel after having one too many drinks, it is no laughing matter. Did you know that drunk driving remains one of the leading causes of auto accidents in Pennsylvania? The statistics are startling. According to the Centers for Disease Control, in 2010, there were 12,426 alcohol-related vehicle accidents in Pennsylvania. Of that number, 459 involved fatalities. Alcohol-related traffic accident fatalities accounted for 35% of all traffic collision deaths. In 2010, an average of 34 alcohol-related accidents occurred in Pennsylvania each day. The statistics are especially troublesome in light of the fact that alcohol related accidents are entirely avoidable. Nonetheless, there are still those who selfishly put everyone else at risk in order to have a “fun” night out.

Those who are injured or lose loved ones in such accidents deserve to be compensated for medical bills, loss of income, and other costs that come with life after a devastating injury or death. A personal injury lawyer in Norristown can help the injured and their loved ones try to begin the healing process by helping them receive the funds they desperately need to do so.

Compensation for Injuries

If you are injured in an accident, whether it is on the roads, in the workplace, or somewhere else, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. An experienced Norristown personal injury attorney will be able to evaluate your medical bills and your diagnoses to determine how you should be compensated not only for your current medical expenses, but for future expenses related to your injuries, as well as pain and suffering.

Compensation for Loss of Loved One

While no amount of money can ever bring back a loved one or erase the emotional pain caused by the loss, fair compensation from the person whose negligence or wrong-doing caused the loss will help ease the financial burden left on surviving family members. If you lose a loved one in an accident caused by someone else, you may be able to receive compensation for loss of affection, loss of income, pain and suffering and funeral costs.
