Sadly, many people need a car accident lawyer in the Lehigh Valley. The Morning Call reported on a recent Lehigh Valley Transportation Study which details a long list of road projects needed in our area.

Between 2013 and 2017, PennDOT reports that there were 32 car accidents at this intersection. Unfortunately, two of these car accidents were fatal.

For your car accident lawyer in Lehigh Valley to be successful, you’ll need to prove that you were injured during the accident itself or as a direct result of the events of the accident. If your injuries were a direct result of the accident, you may claim the following:
Did an ambulance take you to the hospital from the scene of the accident? The average cost for someone without insurance usually ranges from $400 to $1,200 or more, plus mileage. Even if you only sustain minor injuries, you may still require ambulance transport.

Emergency room bills can add up quickly for things like x-rays, CT scans and medical equipment like crutches, walkers, and wheelchairs. A standard wheelchair costs an average of $250. Here’s a resource to help understand the cost of medical equipment: HelpandWellness.com
Injuries like broken bones might require more than just a cast. If you’re bleeding internally or damaged an organ you might require surgery and long-term medical care. You might have to remain in the hospital for a long time, have lots of follow-up doctor visits, and even end up in a physical therapy rehabilitation facility to help regain strength, flexibility, and mobility as your injury heals.
Injuries suffered from a car accident could be permanent or need long-term medical care. Perhaps you need a nurse or caregiver to help you get around the house or bring you to a doctor’s appointment. You can receive compensation for those costs.
Your injuries may require you to make changes to your home or car so that you can simply just get around. In addition to needing a wheelchair or walker, you might need to pay someone to install safety bars, widen doorways and install ramps to help you get up and down stairs. Further, you may need a car that can be driven without using your legs or feet.
Depending on the extent of your injuries and the type of work that you perform, you may need to take a lot of time off from work. If you work in construction, you may miss a lot work and lose a lot of money. You can include those lost wages as part of your car accident claim.
Some injuries may permanently impact your ability to return to work and progress in your career. For example, your injuries make make it impossible to meet certain requirements for a promotion. In that case, you can recover compensation for the future earning potential you have lost.
Family members and beneficiaries may file a claim on a deceased individual’s behalf if their loved one was killed in a car accident. The claim may provide compensation for funeral and burial expenses or to help cover loss of the deceased individual’s support. Pennsylvania law considers this a claim for Wrongful Death.
