For being such an integral part of how we live in the United States, driving a car is shockingly dangerous.The weight of many cars – some coming in at several thousand pounds – combined with the speed we drive them, make them easily capable of inflicting serious injuries if anything should go wrong. And things do go wrong. Car accidents happen constantly, from your simple fender-bender in a parking lot to a high-speed collision on Interstate 76, 78 Route 222 or 272. In Lancaster County, two of the roads with high crash rates might not be the most highly traveled, but have tricky sharp S-curves. One is Hempland Road, a local road in West Hempfield Township, and the other, Reinholds Road, a state route in East Cocalico Township. Many of these crashes result in people getting hurt or, worse, killed. Even the best safety mechanisms and precautions cannot prevent all of the dangers that come with a serious car accident.

At The Brod Law Firm, we are advocates for victims of automobile accidents in Lancaster County. Auto accident attorneys at our firm work tirelessly with the medical and legal community to increase awareness about the long-term effects of soft-tissue injuries. We know that whiplash victims can continue to experience symptoms even well after the accident has occurred. A study by the Clinical Neuroscience Department at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden found that victims of whiplash often report continued symptoms up to seven years after the original injury!
Though all passengers who are involved in rear-end collisions can experience whiplash symptoms, women are more likely to sustain serious whiplash injuries. A likely explanation for this trend is that women have smaller muscles in their necks. By retaining a Pennsylvania car accident lawyer from The Brod Law Firm, you will take the first step to finding the compensation you need to combat whiplash injuries.

What to Do if You Have Been Injured in an Accident In Lancaster County
Our Lancaster County car accident attorneys recommend that you take several important steps after an automobile accident. First, insist upon receiving immediate medical attention. Even if you do not feel injured at the moment, it is possible that you will develop injuries later. If you feel any pain at all, no matter how insignificant it seems at the time, please let the medical provider who examines you aware of any pain, discomfort or immobility. If you are in a motor vehicle accident of any type, Pennsylvania law pursuant to 75 Pa. Cons. Stat.section 3746, requires that your accident should be immediately and quickly reported to the police when there is an injury or death or when the vehicle is immobile or too dangerous to be moved. If a police officer does not show up as as required by section 3746 to investigate and file a report, what should you do? Section 3747 requires that the driver or owner must take the responsibility to file their own report. This must be submitted in writing within five (5) days of the accident. Don't give in to pressure to sign anything shortly after an accident that relinquishes your right to make a claim in exchange for a sum of money when you are hurt and unsure of the full extent of your injuries.
