A recent article from thepittsburghchannel.com reported that a fatal head-on auto collision between a passenger car and a UPS truck in Pennsylvania took the life of the passenger car driver. The UPS truck driver’s condition was not provided but the article stated that he was taken to a local hospital. According to police, the car swerved out of control after skidding on some oil that was on the road.
When auto accidents are caused by foreign substances on the road, such as excessive oil, or by poor road conditions, these factors are unfortunately enough to cause vehicles to lose control, taking an automobile in unexpected directions and resulting in a collision with other vehicles. Head-on collisions in Pennsylvania are some of the most serious auto accidents to take place due to the vulnerability of drivers and front-seat passengers, especially for individuals in small passenger cars who are involved in accidents with larger vehicles like delivery trucks and SUVs.
Suffering serious injuries in an auto accident can lead to a wide-range of expenses that an injured victim may be able to seek compensation for. If another driver’s negligence caused you to suffer injuries in an auto accident, you may be able to obtain the following recompense for:
- Lost wages and/or loss of future earnings
- Medication expenses
- Cost of physical therapy/rehabilitation
- Loss of companionship/consortium
- Steep medical bills
