On Saturday afternoon, a two-vehicle car accident claimed the life of a young woman. The accident occurred in Boling Springs, Pennsylvania when a 23-year-old was operating her vehicle and struck broadside in the intersection of Route 174 and West Lisburn Road. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident and the crash remains under investigation.
The Association for Safe International Road Travel estimates that every year 37,000 individuals are killed in traffic accidents. Tragically, most of these fatalities are preventable and caused by the negligence of others. Reckless driving, vehicle design flaws, dangerous roadways, and mechanical defects are all common causes of preventable auto accidents. While the severity of all auto accidents can differ, the crash can be traumatic no matter how severe. Along with emotional damages, individuals may also sustain physical injuries, lost wages, and property damages. If another party is liable for your car accident, you could be entitled to compensation for your damages. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an auto accident, contacting an experienced auto accident attorney can help determine if you have grounds to file a car accident case.
