Dangerous roads in the Delaware Valley

Auto accidents resulting in serious injuries usually occur at high speeds.  Though we like to think of Bucks County as a rural area, the roads going in and out of our county can be very dangerous.  These include—

  • I-276
    (PA Turnpike)
  • I-95
  • Route 1

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation has determined that U.S. 13 in Lower Bucks is the most dangerous road to walk across in Pennsylvania, with more than a dozen pedestrian deaths since 2005.

Common injuries in car crashes

The severity of injuries in a car crash can result in hospitalization, missed work, and emotional trauma. Common injuries include—

  • Lacerations

  • Herniated disc
  • Bulging disc
  • Cervical, thoracic and lumbar sprain and strain
  • Slipped disc
  • Dislocated disc
  • Pinched nerve
  • Head trauma
  • Concussion
  • Radiculopathy

Truck Accidents

Big heavy tractor-trailers, 18 wheel semis or other big trucks often have blind spots. Their drivers can be over-tired or they may act as if they are "king of the road." Trucks may be over-loaded or under-maintained. When this happens, these behemoths of the highway pose a terrifying risk to the motoring public. When a giant truck weighing tens of thousands of pounds is not properly controlled, catastrophic injury can result. If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, call us now so that we can help you.

SUV Rollover Cases

Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) are among the most popular vehicles in America, but they tend to roll over more frequently than automobiles do. When they are defectively designed or maintained, they may cause much more severe injuries than an ordinary car accident. If you were injured due to an SUV rollover, call us now so that we can help you.

Motorcycle Accidents

Whether you are riding a Softtail, Fat Bob, or crotch rocket sport bike, you know that two wheels on the open road can be a blast! But when a car or truck cuts you off or turns in front of you, or if you have to lay your bike down to save someone’s life (even your own), it’s another story. Who is going to pay for your bike and your gear? Who is going to stand up and make them pay for what they did to you? Call us now so that we can help you. And by the way, "Salute Those Who Defend Freedom!"

Bicycle Accidents

Bicycle riders are uniquely vulnerable on the road. They are vulnerable to motorists and they are vulnerable when they are hit. Cars who pull out from stop signs or driveways or parking lots, drivers who open their doors into you as you pass by, people who turn (right or left) without noticing you no matter how many bright reflectors you use can cause unusually severe injuries because the rider is unprotected. You are vulnerable even when you obey the law by riding as far to the right as practicable. If you were hurt while riding on a bicycle, call us now so that we can help you.

SEPTA Claims

If you were injured on a SEPTA bus, train, subway or EL, or if you were hurt by a SEPTA bus, train, subway or EL, of if you were hurt at a SEPTA station or subway/EL platform, you should hire an experienced lawyer who will fight for your rights against SEPTA. The laws involving SEPTA are complicated. You need an experienced lawyer who has fought SEPTA and won. Call us now so that we can help you win your case against SEPTA.

Drunk Driving Cases

If you are the victim of a drunk driver, call us now so that we can help you. Driving while under the influence of alcohol or controlled substance is a serious offence. Pennsylvania law considers it so outrageous that punitive damages may be available to the victim and limited tort is not applied. Under certain circumstances, chiefly involving death or catastrophic injury, "Dram Shop" claims under the Liquor laws can be explored against bars or taverns serving alcohol to people who are already visibly intoxicated. If you were injured due to the negligence of a drunk driver, you have a good case. Call us now so that we can help you.

Uninsured Motorist Cases

If your accident was caused by someone who did not have car insurance, you may be entitled to a settlement. Many insurance policies contain "uninsured motorist" (UM) benefits. This is a coverage for which you have already paid. Your car insurance rates will not go up if you make this type of claim. Claims for uninsured motorist (UM) benefits should be made by an experienced lawyer such as Paul Weber, who knows how to obtain full value for your claim. Call us now so that we can help you.

Underinsured Motorist Cases

If your accident was caused by someone who did not have enough car insurance, you may be entitled to a settlement also. For example, if your case is worth more than the insurance coverage the defendant has you may be entitled to receive "underinsured motorist" (UIM) benefits. Your car insurance rates will not go up if you make this type of claim. Claims for underinsured motorist (UIM) benefits should be made by an experienced lawyer such as Paul Weber who knows how to obtain full value for your claim. Call us now so that we can help you.
