Lehigh County Auto Accident Attorneys
The Brod Law Firm's experienced Lehigh Valley area car accident attorneys litigate and settle many successful auto accident cases each year. The roads in Lehigh County can be especially hazardous due to high volume from the vehicles coming from the Northeast extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike and its arteries. Route 309, a heavily traveled road requires much driving vigilance due to its variability between high speeds and delays at traffic lights due to high volume times of travel. Weekend nighttime driving has been known to be quite taxing for the poorly rested driver or motorist unfamiliar with the route leading to a number of multi-vehicle accidents. Other notable areas where we see serious accidents occurring with greater frequency are I-80, Route 22, Route 33 and I-78. We have successfully resolved many motor vehicle accident claims in Lehigh County involving all types of motor vehicles, including delivery trucks, vans, tractor trailers, dump trucks, cement trucks, garbage trucks and tanker trucks transporting combustible materials and foods. Motorists in Lehigh Valley with its varied roadways of high speed interstates and occasionally gridlocked major arteries heading into local roads can pose unique challenges.

Lehigh Valley Bus Accident Lawyer
The liability for bus, trolley and train accidents can fall to different organizations depending on the state. In Pennsylvania, only a bus is treated as a motor vehicle and falls under the same legislation as vehicle accidents. Trolleys and trains, on the other hand, are not treated as motor vehicles and fall under different laws and guidelines. Lehigh County car accident lawyer, Gary Brod has extensive experience handling Amtrak train crashes involving passengers and employees. Attorney Gary Brod has extensive experience in successfully resolving through settlement, trial and arbitration over 330 individual cases involving SEPTA bus, train and trolley accidents as well as 112 cases involving interstate and tour bus company crashes in Pennsylvania and out of state. We have personally represented bus operators in various accidents in both Philadelphia and suburbs.
When a passenger is involved in a trolley accident, his or her automobile accident insurance is not consulted because a trolley is not considered a motor vehicle. This means that the passenger must pay for treatment of injuries directly with his or her medical insurance. These costs can be high out-of-pocket for victims, which is why The Brod Law Firm in Philadelphia employs auto accident attorneys that work hard to receive damages from the corporation, city or municipality that runs the trolley.
Train accidents often involve different processes and courts. Because train companies often operate in many states and trains run nationally, Federal law usually applies in cases of train accidents. This means that the case will be tried in a Federal Court and be monitored by several Federal organizations.

Lehigh Valley Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol severely impairs one's ability to drive a car. Even so, millions of Americans are injured each year as a result of collisions with drunk drivers. At The Brod Law Firm, our car accident lawyers aggressively fight for your rights to compensation. Under the law, victims or their survivors of these types of collisions are entitled to compensation for injuries or death.
Victims who are injured because a defendant was driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol are entitled to monetary compensation. In most cases, the investigating officers at the scene of the crime will note that the defendant was under the influence, and this will be indisputable in Court.
Additionally, the law states that survivors of family members who are killed in an auto accident with a drunk driver may seek damages. If it is proven by your personal injury lawyer in court that the driver was negligent and under the influence of drugs or alcohol, damages will be awarded to surviving family members as a wrongful death award.
At The Brod Law Firm, car accident lawyers successfully litigate and settle these cases each year resulting in sizable awards for our clients who are seriously injured.

What to Do if You Have Been Injured in an Accident In Lehigh Valley
Our Lehigh 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, insist that the medical provider include that in his or her report. Also, request that the driver of the other vehicle receive a medical exam, as well. Under no circumstances should you sign any documents that say you are not injured. Do not give interviews that could potentially be used against you in the future.
If possible, you will also need to contact the appropriate authorities so that you can give your account of the accident. You will want as much documentation as possible in the event that you find yourself in litigation.
Finally, contact The Brod Law Firm to consult with one of an expert Pennsylvania car accident lawyer regarding the collision. Remember, time is of the essence and it is possible that your attorney can gain valuable information soon after the collision that he or she might not be able to gather later.
