Powerful Legal Help For Crash Victims In Pennsylvania

Vehicular crashes are probably the most frequent cause of injury and death in Pennsylvania. These incidents cause medical and legal difficulties for everyone involved — drivers, passengers, and even pedestrians. Especially when you are seriously injured, you face immediate problems that can sometimes feel overwhelming.

In these circumstances, it is important to engage knowledgeable legal help as soon as possible to investigate exactly what caused the incident or crash, everything that happened, and who was at fault.

Auto Collisions

Investigators at the scene and afterward seek first to determine exactly what happened in the event and what caused it:

  • Unsafe road
  • Mechanical failure
  • Driver incompetence
  • Reckless driving
  • Excessive speed
  • Violation of traffic laws
  • Defective vehicle
  • Cellphone use
  • Unlicensed driver
  • Drunk driving
  • Inattention to the road
  • Ignoring road conditions

If you have been injured in an auto crash, we can file a lawsuit against the person who caused it to obtain an award of damages. In an injury lawsuit, we must prove that the driver of the other vehicle caused the crash by not paying attention or not taking reasonable care.

Under Pennsylvania law, the person who was at fault for injuring you is responsible to pay compensation for:

  • Pain, suffering and inconvenience
  • Loss of life's pleasures
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Your distress and any interference with your family relationships
  • A loss of wages and your future earning ability because of the injury
  • Any other costs that were a direct result of your injury

Caputo in Pittsburgh, we have decades of experience in these cases and will examine the situation thoroughly to determine the most effective approach for your particular case.

Truck Crashes In Pennsylvania

The weight and force of a truck, especially when moving at high speed, create tremendous impact in a collision with a smaller vehicle. Severe vehicle damage and serious personal injuries, even fatalities, are almost inevitable. These events often lead to high monetary judgments against trucking companies. Trucking companies often rely on a team of lawyers they keep on retainer to fight these cases. When you are injured in a crash involving a truck, you need a lawyer who will stand up just as forcefully for your interests.
