Car Accidents in Lawrence County, PA
Berger and Green wants to hear from you no matter how your accident occurred or who you think was at fault. We have helped many clients over the years who came to us after they were told they were not eligible for compensation.
We can help you collect damages for the following and more:
Perhaps you have heard the old adage that all rear-end collisions are the fault of the back driver. That is not quite true—”all” should be replaced with “most.” But no matter your role in the collision, we may be able to help you recover compensation. We want to hear from you and gain the opportunity to investigate your accident.
Head-on collisions are dangerous and potentially fatal, as these accidents can occur at high speeds. We can help you pursue damages from the other driver in a head-on collision no matter how the accident occurred.
Side-impact collisions often happen at intersections, often when one driver runs a red light or stop sign. At the moment of impact, the two cars form a “T.” It is usually the vehicle at the top of the T that incurs the most damage.
Failure to Yield Accidents
At every intersection or merge point where two or more roads come together, certain vehicles have what is known as the “right of way,” meaning they get to proceed through the intersection while vehicles coming from the other road(s) must yield to them. The right of way is usually denoted by a sign (such as “Stop” or “Yield”) or a traffic signal.
Drunk Driving Accidents
The legal limit in Pennsylvania is 0.08% under PA Code § 3802, but you can be charged with drunk driving at a lower BAC if you ingested a “sufficient amount of alcohol such that [you are] rendered incapable of safely driving.” You can also be charged with impaired driving for operating a vehicle under the influence of other drugs, such as marijuana or even prescription medication. If the driver who caused your accident was impaired, we will take that into account when pursuing compensation.
Distracted Driving Accidents
Distracted driving is a serious issue in Pennsylvania and all over the country. As we investigate your accident, Berger and Green will look for evidence that the other driver was distracted and focusing on something other than the road.
Accidents Involving Motorcycles
Motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable people on the road due to the lack of protection the vehicle provides them. If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, Berger and Green can help you fight for compensation from the at-fault driver and their insurance company.

The Statute of Limitations
