When you or your children are injured in an accident, take action

In previous posts on this blog, we have discussed the importance of several safety features found in cars. For adults and older adolescents, there are seat belts to help keep them safe. For babies and younger children, there are car seats. In both cases, Pennsylvania law requires that these safety devices be used to prevent injuries in the case of a car accident.

However, even with the proper use of car seats and seat belts, serious injuries routinely happen during car crashes. Cars can only provide so much protection in an accident. Serious injuries can include broken bones, head injuries, internal injuries and spinal cord injuries. They can result in surgery, medical interventions and rehabilitation. In some cases, the injuries will cause life-long issues and permanent disability. They can make it difficult for Pennsylvania residents to live a normal and fully independent life.

In these cases, especially when children are involved, it is important that people understand what caused the car crash. If the accident was caused by a negligent driver, then that driver can be held financially responsible for the accident. This means that the negligent driver -- usually through the person's insurance company -- can be forced to pay for the accident victims' medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.

In order to receive this compensation, victims should consider consulting an attorney. This attorney should be skilled in personal injury cases. These cases require the plaintiff to bring evidence of the driver's negligence in order to be successful. This can be a technical process that requires skill and experience.

The attorneys at Schmery Zicolello have this experience. For more than 20 years, we have helped Pennsylvania residents and their families recover compensation following serious wrecks. Our attorneys aggressively fight to get people the money they need after someone else causes an accident.

Commonwealth v. Candice Steinbacher – Motion for Judgement Acquittal Granted

Motion for Judgment of Acquittal for a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) prosecution was granted by Lycoming County President Judge Nancy L. Butts, after Attorney Kyle Rude argues that the Commonwealth could not prove Ms. Steinbacher was in actual physical control of a motor vehicle. Ms. Steinbacher was arrested after Williamsport City Police believed she switched seats with her boyfriend in order to avoid an arrest for DUI.
