Automobile Accidents

Though we rarely think about how dangerous motor vehicles can be, the statistics are sobering. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an estimated 33,963 people died in car accidents during 2009. On average, approximately 40,000 deaths and more than 2.5 million injuries occur as a result of motor vehicle accidents each year. Car accidents can include car crashes, truck accidents, tractor trailer accidents, farm equipment accidents, motorcycle accidents, ATV accidents, bus accidents, van accidents, drunk driving, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents and uninsured and underinsured motorists.

In addition to being frightening, an auto accident can result in serious injuries such as brain damage, spinal cord injury or crushing. While motor vehicle accidents account for a significant number of personal injury and wrongful death claims, they are often complex and should always be treated as unique. The PA car and truck accident lawyers of Scartelli Olszewski provide sound counseling and representation of car accident victims and their loved ones. Our Scranton, PA car accident lawyers not only understand the rules of the road affecting who was at fault in an accident, but are prepared to take motor vehicle accident matters to trial to fight for the rights of our clients.
