Over 135 Years of Combined Experience In Personal Injury and Wrongful Death

Two car accidents happen within moments of each other

The Pennsylvania turnpike was the scene of two collisions on a recent Saturday afternoon. The car accidents occurred between 4:20 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. in Lancaster County, just three miles apart. Though no details were provided regarding the second accident, a report was made available pertaining to the first accident, which occurred near the 283.7 mile marker. 

A deputy fire chief reported on the first accident, stating that a tractor-trailer apparently struck a vehicle. The driver of the car then lost control, and the vehicle spun around and crashed into a barrier on the highway. The force of the impact caused the driver of the car to be ejected from his vehicle.

It was reported that the injured man was then taken to a nearby hospital for emergency care. The man who was behind the wheel of the big rig is said to have immediately pulled off the road after the collision occurred. No update on the injured victim's condition has been made public.

In similar Pennsylvania car accidents, it is sometimes found that one of the drivers involved was at-fault through negligent or wrongful actions while operating a motor vehicle. Those who have been injured under such circumstances are able to file a legal claim in a civil court in order to seek compensation for damages they have suffered. Loss of wages, medical bills, loss of potential earning power and emotional pain and suffering are among those damages commonly listed in a claim that is filed in the aftermath of a vehicular accident. In a successfully litigated claim, compensation for these or other damages can help alleviate many costs associated with a collision.
