Though it is not yet winter, snow and ice have arrived in Pennsylvania like those pesky relatives that show up hours early for a family gathering. Residents are happy to see them, but a bit more time to prepare would have been nice. In the last week, winter weather took the Keystone State by surprise, and some unfortunate souls had to deal with a car accident instead of holiday plans.
The city of York was hit hard by a bout of snow and ice. Though unexpected this early in the season, several inches coated the roads before the storm passed. Law enforcement and rescue workers reported several crashes in only a few hours.
Sometimes, motorists are not prepared to drive in inclement weather. An error behind the wheel can cause serious injury or death to another person. After becoming the victim of a car accident, a person may become overwhelmed.
Especially during the holiday season, it can be difficult to juggle medical bills, loss of wages due to inability to work, expensive damages to vehicles or other property, and other matters a victim must often face. If a car accident was the fault of another party, a victim may have legal recourse. A victim always has the option to seek assistance in the form of an experienced attorney. A Pennsylvania attorney can help a victim work thought the court process, and explain what options are available to compensate a victim and help cover expenses incurred as a result of another individual’s negligence.
