Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) September 10, 2012
The Philadelphia car accident lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., are dedicated to protecting the rights of car accident victims, and as such, feel it is important to discuss recent car accident statistics in the state of Pennsylvania. Over the Labor Day weekend this year, as many as 262 injuries and six fatalities occurred as a result of auto accidents on Pennsylvania’s roads and highways. The total number of accidents involving Pennsylvania motorists over the four-day holiday period was 746, of which at least 88 involved alcohol intoxication. These numbers were largely similar to accident statistics from the previous year’s Labor Day weekend.
Examining this year’s Labor Day traffic accident statistics should give all motorists in Pennsylvania a sense of the risks that driving can involve, particularly during busy travel periods. Drunk driving, in particular, can become an especially serious issue over the holidays, when increased opportunities for socializing can lead to individuals engaging in this incredibly dangerous behavior.
Being involved in a car accident can have a devastating impact on the lives of all those involved, potentially requiring costly medical care and resulting in life-altering physical damage. Fortunately, those whose injuries were caused by the reckless or negligent actions of other drivers may be entitled to pursue compensation for their losses. The Philadelphia car accident lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., are prepared to represent any Pennsylvania residents who have been the victims of a car accident.
