Pennsylvania Auto Accidents

Moon, PA - Two Hospitalized After Crash on Flaugherty Run RdCar accidents are a leading cause of severe injuries and death in the United States. Automobile accidents rank 5th on a list of the top ten causes of injury in the nation, according to information provided by the Centers for Disease Control. On average, the United States sees more than 30,000 fatal auto accidents per year. About 3% of those deaths happen in Pennsylvania. There are more than 1,000 people who lose their lives per year in the Keystone State due to car crashes. 

Being hurt in a car crash is painful and scary. Injured crash victims may not know where to turn for help if they find themselves struggling to make ends meet after they are hurt in a wreck. The average cost of successfully recovering from serious injuries is about $57,000. The cost of an ambulance ride alone is about $900, while the average price of an emergency room visit is about $3,300. The question is, depending on the circumstances of a crash, who is responsible for paying these bills? 

Assuming you have health insurance, your policy should be able to pay your medical bills related to your crash. However, if it turns out that someone else is responsible for the collision that caused your injuries, your healthcare provider has the legal right to seek reimbursement for all medical costs paid on your behalf from the responsible party. 

By law, you are responsible for your medical bills, regardless of medical payment coverage or health insurance. Due to this, it is essential to seek total and fair compensation for the damages you endured due to your recent accident. If you were not responsible for the accident, the recovery amount you receive depends on the personal car insurance coverage or the number of damages. Therefore, retaining the services of a skilled car crash lawyer in Pennsylvania is the key to maximizing your recovery.
