Pennsylvania Fatal Motor Vehicle Accidents
According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 30,000 people died as a result of fatal auto accidents in 2009. Most of these accidents were entirely preventable, as most auto accidents are caused by some form of driver negligence, including speeding, drunk driving and distracted driving.
If you have lost a loved one as a result of a fatal auto accident, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at Berger and Green. We represent clients throughout Pennsylvania in motor vehicle accident claims.
We Are Here to Help
While no amount of compensation can ever make up for the loss of a loved one, many of our clients do express a sense of justice or closure when negligent parties are held accountable for their actions. If you wish to learn more about your legal rights and options, we are pleased to offer a free consultation and case evaluation.
Experienced and Caring Advocates
Our attorneys and staff wish to offer their sincere condolences. As a law firm that has represented many family members in wrongful death claims, we realize that speaking with an attorney may be the last thing on your mind at the present time.
If you feel you may want to pursue a cause of action at a later date, however, we do suggest that you take immediate action. The insurance defense firms aggressively defend against wrongful death claims and may already be taking eyewitness statements, gathering police reports and taking other significant measures in preparation of raising a strong defense. Unfortunately, evidence that may be important to effectively prosecute a wrongful death claim may be lost or damaged with the passage of time.
