One of the most frightening aspects about traveling is that there are so many unknowns when it comes to safety and your upcoming trip. Will you get into a car accident? If you take the bus, will the bus driver operate the vehicle safely? If you use a ride-sharing service like Uber or Lyft, will the driver be safe? If you take a train or taxi, what happens in case of an accident?
The risks of being out on the road are numerous, and with more than 30,000 people dying every year in traffic accidents, it is clear that more needs to be done to keep drivers, bicyclists, pedestrians, and many other people out on the road safe. Hopefully some significant laws can be passed to increase the safety infrastructure in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as well as all across the state — and really the entire country.
While we wait on safety improvement, it is crucial for victims of car accidents, pedestrian accidents, bus accidents, bike accidents, and really any traffic accident to consider their legal rights and options. In many cases, pursuing civil litigation against a negligent party involved in the crash is one of the best ways to attain justice for what happened.
In these cases, it is imperative for the victims to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. At DelVecchio & Miller, we work tirelessly for our clients, holding their insurer’s responsible if they try to squeak their way out of liability, or presenting a strong case against a negligent driver if they caused you pain and suffering via a traffic accident.
