    Common Causes of Car Accidents in Pennsylvania

    Car accidents happen for numerous reasons. However, there are certain factors that have higher chances of causing a car crash. Below are some of the most common causes of car crashes in Pennsylvania.

    Distracted Driving

    You have probably seen campaigns all over social media warning drivers not to use their smartphones while driving. Texting and answering calls while driving can put distracted drivers and other motorists around them in danger. Despite many efforts to make sure drivers keep their eyes on the road, accidents continue happening. Unfortunately, most of these accidents lead to devastating injuries.

    According to the 2017 Pennsylvania Crash Facts & Statistics report released by PennDOT, there were more than 15,000 crashes caused by distracted driving in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, there were almost 60 deaths reported due to the same cause.

    Speeding

    Speeding is one of the most commonly known causes of accidents around the country. Pennsylvania shares this unfortunate reality. According to the aforementioned report, speeding is one of the significant contributors to crashes in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, out of the more than 30,000 reported speed-related accidents, 400 were fatal. Speeding is only rivaled by drunk driving as a leading cause of car crashes.

    Driving Under the Influence

    Driving under the influence (DUI) refers to operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Alongside speeding, DUI is also a significant cause of car accidents. According to PennDOT, drunk driving was responsible for more than 9,000 reported crashes and 160 fatalities during 2017 in Pennsylvania. DUI laws in Pennsylvania are strict, and if you are convicted of a DUI, you will face severe consequences which include incarceration and fines.

    Drowsy Driving

    Fatigued driving is often associated with commercial drivers, such as truck drivers, who spend long hours behind the wheel every day. There are instances where a driver may overextend their driving time to meet a delivery deadline. However, driving for longer than the federal time limits can cause fatigue. If a driver is fatigued, he or she cannot focus as sharply or react as quickly as usual, increasing the chances of a collision with other vehicles on the road.

    While these are not the only causes of car accidents in Pennsylvania, they are some of the most common and dangerous. Unfortunately, all drivers in Stroudsburg are at risk of a crash on the road every single day.

    ...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.

    THE REIFF FIRM IS AN OUTSTANDING LAW FIRM!

    I was referred to the Reiff Law Firm by a friend who had previously been a client of the firm. My friend told me that the Reiff Firm had done an incredible job handling his case and treated him like family. My friend's recommendation was spot on. I am going to miss them now that my case is over. Attorney Reiff and Attorney Toczydlowski are excellent attorneys. They really care. They got me an INCREDIBLE RESULT. Most importantly they were there for me during some extremely dark and difficult times in my life. I highly recommend the Reiff Law Firm to anyone seeking the very best legal representation for injuries they suffered in an accident.
