Delaware County Truck Accident Lawyer
Collisions with freight trucks and tractor-trailers cause a large number of traffic fatalities in America and in Delaware County. Auto accident attorneys at The Brod Law Firm are committed to ensuring that our clients receive maximum compensation in these cases. Because drivers of these trucks are under pressure to reach their destination, they often drive when exhausted. This fatigue, coupled with the size and mass of the vehicles, accounts for the large number of serious injuries and fatalities tractor-trailers cause.
Although recent legislation has attempted to prevent overly exhausted drivers from getting behind the wheel of tractor-trailers, injuries and fatalities continue to occur nationally and locally in Delaware County. Car accident lawyers at The Brod Law Firm are retained in many cases involving tractor-trailers each year. Because of the size of tractor-trailers, truck drivers often receive minor injuries compared to the major injuries and fatalities of passengers in smaller vehicles, and our Delaware County car accident attorneys want to ensure that the victims of these accidents are fully compensated for these injuries.
At The Brod Law Firm, car accident lawyers successfully litigate and settle these automobile head-on collision cases each year resulting in sizable awards for our clients who suffer serious injuries. Contact The brod Law Firm today to speak to an experienced Pennsylvania car accident lawyer.

Delaware County 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. Delaware 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 Delaware County 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.

What to Do if You Have Been Injured in an Accident In Delaware County
Our Delaware 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.
