Man injured after other driver allegedly ignores stop sign

People who suffer injuries after a car crash in Pennsylvania will face problems even if their lives are not in immediate danger in the aftermath. There can be hospitalizations, hefty medical bills, lost wages and more. These accidents can happen to anyone at any time. It is imperative for those who have been injured in a car accident to understand their rights to seek compensation for their losses with the help of an attorney experienced in car accidents.

A man who works as a local prosecutor was injured in a two-vehicle car crash. The man, 44, was driving at shortly after 6 p.m. He was heading south when another vehicle, an SUV, tried to go east to west and crashed into the man's car. It hit the left front near the tire. The man's vehicle ran onto the grass of a residence. The airbags deployed and the drivers were wearing their seatbelts.

The man was taken to one hospital and then transferred to another hospital. He was admitted for two days. He suffered a broken sternum and had other injuries. The other driver, a female age 69, was taken by a private vehicle for treatment. She was given a citation for not adhering to a stop sign. The man is expected to be able to return to light duty at work soon, but his full recovery could take as long as two months.

Although the driver is expected to recover, that does not eliminate the current issues and potential problems he might face in the future because of this crash. Even accidents in which it appears that the victims will be back to normal carry no guarantee. Some injuries can be long-term and arise well after the initial scars and damage has apparently healed.

Many will rely on the insurance company to cover their losses but will be disappointed and surprised to find that their main interest is to keep costs as low as possible and any settlement offer is woefully inadequate. Having legal assistance is essential to consider a lawsuit to recover all that was lost. As a legal professional, the injured man will undoubtedly be aware of this and he should act accordingly by speaking to an accident attorney.
