Rear-end collisions are among the most common types of motor vehicle accidents, and they happen even more frequently in heavy traffic. The old adage is mostly true – the back driver is usually, but not always, at fault for a rear-end collision. It is most often a case of following too closely or of not paying enough attention to the road – distracted driving is a major and growing culprit in rear-end collisions.
No matter how your rear-end collision occurred in McCandless, Berger and Green will investigate the accident, gather evidence, build a compelling case on your behalf, and pursue the other driver and the insurance company for compensation.
Head-on collisions are much less common than rear-end collisions, but they are the cause of a higher percentage of fatal accidents. Even when drivers survive head-on collisions, they often have severe, debilitating bodily injuries. When two vehicles hit head-on, their combined velocity is felt by the occupants on both sides. That is why head-on collisions are so dangerous and destructive.
Common causes of head-on collisions include entering divided highways the wrong way, turning the wrong way down one-way streets, and drifting across the center line – often due to intoxication, drowsiness, or distraction. We will determine what caused your head-on collision and pursue the responsible party.
Side-impact collisions, which happen most often at intersections, involve the front of one vehicle hitting the side of the other. The occupants of both cars, but particularly the one hit from the side, are at major risk of bodily injury in a side-impact collision.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk driving is a contributing factor to a significant number of car accidents in Pennsylvania. We will look for evidence that the driver who hit you was impaired, and if we find it, we will use it against them when building a case.
Distracted Driving Accidents
Distracted driving is another growing problem that is cited in many local car accidents. Smartphones are often, but not always, the culprit. We will look at cell phone records and other evidence that the driver who hit you may have been distracted at the time of the accident.

The Statute of Limitations
Car accident victims in Pennsylvania typically have two years to take legal action for damages resulting from a crash, but this statute of limitations can vary based on a number of unique factors, so it is a good idea to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible. If necessary, Berger and Green can file a lawsuit to keep the statute from expiring on your case.
