Car accident investigations require experience and skill

Every day, thousands of people travel on the busy highways of Western Pennsylvania. Some of these people will be involved in a car accident that will change their lives forever. While some accidents are not preventable, many of them are caused by a motorist who failed to follow the rules of the road.

Determining who is at fault in an accident is a prerequisite to recovering damages. The person who is primarily at fault for the accident will be responsible for the damages he or she caused. Under Pennsylvania’s comparative fault law, if an injured party was 50 percent or less at fault they can be awarded damages, although the damages will be reduced by their percentage of fault. Damages can compensate the injured party for their medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.

It can be difficult to investigate a car accident case all on your own. A thorough investigation may require you to deal with insurance companies and insurance adjusters, whose main goal may be to minimize the damages you suffered.
