How can a Philadelphia car accident lawyer help?

In most cases, accident victims need to negotiate with insurance companies to obtain the financial compensation they deserve. A car accident lawyer can deal directly with the insurance company on your behalf. If the insurance company refuses to cooperate, an attorney can help you take them to court.

Car accidents are complicated. Right from the moment you hear and feel crunching metal and shattering glass, your life changes. You need medical treatment. You can’t work. Your car needs to be fixed. All these things add up fast – medical bills, lost income, car repairs.

If you don’t take action, you might end up having to paying for your accident – even if you didn’t do anything wrong. You need help fast. You need a lawyer who knows how the system works. You need someone who knows how to deal with insurance companies and knows how to get you the money you deserve. You need Villari, Brandes & Giannone, P.C.

What should I do if I’m involved in a car accident?

Immediately after the accident

  • Call for an ambulance if anyone’s hurt
  • Contact the police
  • Get the other driver’s contact and insurance info
  • Write down details about the crash
  • Talk to witnesses and get contact info

Soon after the accident

  • Get checked out by a doctor
  • Attend follow-up appointments
  • Don’t talk to anyone about the crash
  • Obtain a copy of the official accident report
  • Contact our law firm
  • Contact your insurance company
  • Don’t talk to other driver’s insurance company

How do I read my Pennsylvania accident report?

The police officer responding to your car accident will fill out an official accident report, known as the “Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Police Crash Reporting Form.” This report will show, in the officer’s opinion, how the crash occurred and who the officer believes was at fault. An accident report is a critical piece of evidence for obtaining the financial compensation you rightfully deserve for your accident-related expenses.

Obtaining full and fair compensation for your accident can often be a challenge. That’s because insurance companies often challenge every piece of evidence that’s in your favor.

That’s why you need Villari, Brandes & Giannone, P.C. on your side, defending your rights. We know how to take on insurance companies and win. We know how to read accident reports for the facts you need to build a strong legal case. Contact us to find out how we can help you.

What are the most common car accidents in Philadelphia? 

Texting While Driving

Texting while driving has become one of the leading causes of car accidents, even though texting while driving is illegal in many states, including Pennsylvania and New Jersey. That’s because countless studies have shown that texting drivers are not paying attention to everything around them – they are distracted drivers. As a result, many texting drivers often crash into other vehicles, causing serious injuries or even fatalities.

Distracted Driving

Drivers always need to pay attention. Otherwise, they could cause a serious car accident that results in severe injuries or fatalities. When most people think of distracted driving, they think of texting drivers or people talking on the phone while driving. But cellphones are only one form of distraction. Other ways drivers can be distracted include adjusting the radio, eating while driving, applying makeup, or attempting to operate a GPS. All are dangerous activities while driving.

Return to Top

Drunk Driving

The dangers of drinking and driving have been well documented for decades. Drunk driving is a serious crime in every state. Even so, some drivers ignore the law and put everyone on the road at risk. If you or a loved one was seriously injured or killed in a car accident caused by a drunk or distracted driver, don’t simply assume the police and insurance companies will take care of everything. Make sure you have an experienced lawyer working for you.

Speeding

Speeding remains one of the leading causes of car accidents. Some people might not think that speeding is a serious offense. But the reality is, speeding drivers have less time to stop or avoid an accident due to driving excessively fast. Many drivers who cause speeding accidents might deny driving over the speed limit. But evidence from the accident scene (including skid marks, severity of damage) often confirm that the driver was driving too fast.

Return to Top

Reckless Driving

Drivers need to obey the rules of the road in order to avoid a car accident. Unfortunately, some drivers don’t think the rules apply to them. Reckless driving accidents occur for many different reasons. Examples of reckless driving include tailgating, changing lanes without warning, weaving in and out of traffic, and cutting other drivers off. If a reckless driver caused your crash, contact us. We can help you hold them accountable.

Rear-End Collision

Rear-end collisions remain the most common car accidents in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and elsewhere around the country. Some people might think these accidents are minor. But if you’ve been in a rear-end accident, you know very well just how serious such collisions can be for everyone involved. Back, neck injuries (including whiplash), concussions, and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are common. And in many cases, rear-end crashes are caused by distracted drivers, including texting drivers.

Head-On Collision

Among the most serious car accidents handled by our attorneys, head-on collisions often result in serious injuries or fatalities. Head-on crashes occur for many different reasons. Sometimes, drivers are distracted and drift across the center line into oncoming traffic. Other times, drivers fall asleep at the wheel and crash into an oncoming car. Whatever the reason, it’s critical that you take your accident and your injuries seriously right from the start. Contact us today.

Hit-and-Run Accident

Perhaps one of the most upsetting – and frustrating – accidents we deal with at our law firm involve hit-and-run drivers. When drivers crash into another vehicle, they are obligated to pull over and provide insurance information in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and many other states. Unfortunately, some drivers ignore these laws and leave the scene of a crash. This commonly happens with drivers who don’t have insurance, who don’t have a driver’s license, or are engaging in illegal activity. However, you still have rights and should contact our law firm immediately if you have been injured in a hit-and-run accident.

Rollover Accident

Rollover accidents often result in serious injuries or fatalities. Such accidents occur for many different reasons. Sometimes, drivers are going too fast and the vehicle rolls over, especially on a corner or a turn at high speed. Other times, a design defect is to blame. Whatever the reason, rollover accident claims can often be extremely complicated. That’s why it’s critical that you contact our law firm immediately if you or a loved one was hurt in a rollover accident.

Red Light, Stop Sign Accident

Drivers who fail to stop at a stop sign or red light put everyone on the road in danger. When drivers run a red light or a stop sign, they often crash into the side of another vehicle, causing a T-bone or intersection accident. So why do drivers run red lights or ignore stop signs? Sometimes, they’re distracted. Other times, they’re drunk or asleep at the wheel. Whatever the reason, injury victims have rights. And we can fight for them.

Return to Top

Intersection Accident

Intersections in cities like Philadelphia or even small towns around the country can be very dangerous. That’s because so many drivers aren’t paying attention, resulting in intersection accidents due to negligence. Sometimes, these accidents are T-bone accidents (one car driving into the side of another). Other times, these crashes are rear-end or head-on collisions. Whatever type of intersection accident you’re dealing with, we can help.

Winter Weather Accident

Winter weather can make driving treacherous in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and other northern states. Drivers need to slow down or leave enough space between them and other drivers if there’s snow, ice, or sleet on the road. Otherwise, they could cause a car accident. Experienced drivers know how to drive defensively in the snow. Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to drive in winter weather in the Northeast. If you’ve been in an accident, contact our law firm.

Return to Top

Road Defect Accident

Road defects often cause serious car accidents in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and other states. Some of the most common road defects that pose a danger to drivers include potholes, poor drainage (especially during rain or snowstorms), missing guardrails, unmarked hazards, cracked pavement, missing lane markers, poor lighting, inadequate traffic signage or traffic lights. Whatever the cause of your crash, contact us. We’re here to help you get your life back on track.
