One of the most common causes of accidents in and around Pittsburgh is speeding. Drivers who make the choice to operate too fast for conditions endanger the lives of other drivers and passengers, pedestrians, and bicyclists alike.
Distracted driving is a growing concern. As we rely more and more on our electronic devices, drivers are continuously looking at their screens instead of the roadway.
Drunk drivers continue to wreak havoc on Pennsylvania roadways. During the latest reporting year, alcohol-impaired drivers caused 26% of the total traffic fatalities and thousands of injuries.
We commonly deal with a range of injuries in the aftermath of a Hershey accident. This includes:
