Table of Contents

    Cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, and pickup trucks are only a few of the personal vehicles that people rely on to carry out their day to day tasks. These vehicles when used with Pennsylvania’s robust network or highways, roads, freeways, and interstates permits rapid travel throughout the state and beyond. The convenience provided by personal motor vehicles allows Pennsylvanians to live further away from their workplace. Additionally, the convenience of travel makes it possible to engage in a much broader array of social, professional, and other activities. However, cars and trucks are not an unmitigated good without any drawbacks.

    To start with, maintaining a personal vehicle is expensive and can require a significant amount of time and effort. However, the main concern regarding personal vehicles is the risk of a high-speed crash or collision. High-speed crashes are more likely to cause serious life-altering injuries due to the violent forces involved. If your accident was the result of another person’s negligence, carelessness, or recklessness the experienced car accident lawyers of The Reiff Law Firm may be able to fight for compensation for you.

    Common Causes of Vehicle Collisions in Pennsylvania

    Despite their commonality, car accidents are actually complex events where a series of decisions, conditions, and factors come together in such a way that a collision becomes inevitable. Every car crash is different and the product of different forces. Understanding common factors that contribute to accidents is instrumental in avoiding common risks and reducing one’s risk of being involved in a serious collision. One of the most common reasons behind car accidents in Pennsylvania is that the driver became momentarily distracted from the roadway and emerging hazards. Distractions that capture the attention of the driver have always been a real problem that must be addressed and guarded against. Whereas screaming children or the car radio was the biggest distraction in days gone by, today a broad array of electronic devices competes for the attention of the driver. A smartphone can result in calls, texts, emails, and other communications that take the driver’s attention off of the roadway.

    Likewise, an in-vehicle entertainment system can also divert attention front the road. A driver who is not focused on the road can neither perceive nor react to threats that may appear. A driver who cannot avoid threats is significantly more likely to suffer an accident. Aggressive drivers also significantly increase the odds of suffering an accident for all motorists. Drivers who speed, tailgate, change lanes without signaling, engage in err attic lane changes, lane split, or engage in other aggressive and prohibited behaviors increase the accident risk for all drivers. People who engage in this type of reckless behavior should be held accountable for the injuries they cause.

    Other Reasons Behind Abington Car Crashes

    There are a number of other reasons that can cause a car accident. Unfortunately, one contributing factor to an accident is the presence of a vehicle defect that causes unintended operation or otherwise results in the loss of vehicle control. The Toyota unintended acceleration glitch, General Motors ignition switch recall, and the Takata airbag recall are only a few of the serious vehicle safety problems that have been discovered in recent years. Unfortunately, a number of these vehicles will likely remain on our roads and highways for up to a decade due to owner’s failure to seek repair. These and other defects increase the likelihood that a serious car crash will occur for all k drivers in the immediate vicinity.

    ...I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case.

    As a former client, I want to say that the Reiff Law Firm changed my entire life with handling of my legal case. I was in a very serious automobile accident with severe injuries to neck and back areas. I contacted the law firm and asked what to do with the medical bills and how do I get the correct representation against the individual who rear-ended my car. In short, the firm took complete control of the case contacting my insurance company and asking for all the medical bills and legal matters be sent directly to them. I was able to get treatment from my doctor without worrying about the legal stuff. Furthermore, two years later the case was settled for a substantial amount of money. My life was much better due to the firm handling of my case. My attorneys at Reiff Law Firm are absolutely the best and I have recommended to my family friends. Thanks Reiff Law Firm.

    I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city.

    Before meeting with Jeffrey Reiff and Bob Szostak from the Reiff law firm I’ve consulted with a few other injury attorneys in the Philadelphia region. Difference was, these guys know their stuff! I was absolutely blown away by how compassionate and welcome this law firm makes you feel. Once signed with them I never went a single week without staying in the loop with the progress and updates these guys have on your case. Working with them for some time turned what was an injury case, into a family! From calls and meetings, to just calling in to say “hi how’s everything going” I’ve never felt like a beat was skipped. I’d recommended the Reiff law firm 100%! I’m very comfortable to say there’s no better in the city. The awards they’ve earned over the years speaks for itself! I can never thank the Reiff law firm and Bob Szostak enough for everything they’ve done, their professionalism, compassion and all of their knowledge and experience! Highly rated! Best in the city! I look forward continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks again My Reiff family!

    ...without them I would have been lost.

    I can’t say enough great things about the Attorneys at the Reiff Law Firm. They made me feel at ease when I was going through a very difficult time in my life. Never being in a situation like this I was so unsure of where to start and how to go about the process. Justin gave me options where I thought I had none and explained everything in a way that I could understand. Justin and the team helped me arrange all of the treatment and therapy that I needed, without them I would have been lost. My attorney John went to bat for me like no one else could have, his knowledge and professionalism is unmatched. If anyone is ever in need of a team of attorneys the Reiff Law Firm is my ONLY recommendation.
