A 26-year-old Philadelphia man was killed in a severe personal injury auto accident on U.S. I-70 while driving through Ohio last week. Philadelphia resident Carlos Salazar died at the scene of the bizarre pre-dawn multi-car accident. According to accident reports, Salazar’s car struck a van which caused his vehicle to veer off the roadway, flip over a cable barrier in the median and plow into oncoming traffic on the other side of the divided highway. Thrown from his vehicle during the crash, Salazar died at the site.
When auto accidents occur, Philadelphia personal injury attorneys help protect the rights of accident victims and their families to ensure that they receive the financial compensation they are entitled to. When Philadelphia motor vehicle accidents result in serious personal injuries or fatalities, insurance companies can inundate accident victims or surviving families with mounds of paperwork. Insurance companies are dedicated to settling accident injury and damage claims for the least amount of money in the shortest amount of time. Pressure from insurance companies can cause accident victims and their families who are unfamiliar with claim procedures to settle for far less compensation that they might have obtained if they were fairly represented by a knowledgeable Philadelphia personal injury lawyer.
A Philadelphia personal injury attorney with considerable experience in handling auto accidents and accident insurance claims can take the burden off recovering or grieving families and fight for benefits to which they are entitled. Pennsylvania insurance law presents some distinct challenges in obtaining full compensation for accident victims. Differences between full and limited tort insurance coverage, the specifics of your policy’s uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage, whether your policy includes income loss protection and other critical considerations can affect the amount of compensation accident victims are entitled to.
