As a suburb of Philadelphia, and effectively a suburb of Trenton as well, a number of people travel into, out of, and through Levittown every day to get to work, or come home. Due to the sheer volume of people coming and going through Levittown and Bucks County, some of these individuals will, unfortunately, experience car accidents. Behind Philadelphia, Allegheny, and Montgomery Counties, Bucks County had the fourth-highest number of reported car accidents in 2014, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s Pennsylvania Crash Facts and Statistics report for 2014. Bucks County had nearly 6,000 car accidents in 2014, with more than 2,600 resulting in injuries and 43 that resulted in death.
There is no shortage of places where accidents can occur in and around Levittown. Bordered on all sides by Interstate 276, Interstate 95, the Bristol Pike, and Route 1, accidents happen during the morning and evening rush hours all the time.
Then within the town there are numerous residential areas, shopping centers and lanes of restaurants, where drivers can become involved in car accidents.
When You Are Involved in A Levittown Car Accident
When you are involved in a car accident, there are several things that you need to do. For starters, it is important to keep calm. You might be upset because you are the victim, you’re injured or because now you have to deal with a car accident, but keeping calm will help everyone get through this process.
If possible move your vehicle to a safe place, then get out – again if you are not seriously injured – and make sure everyone else involved in the accident is ok. If you are too injured to move after an accident, wait for help to arrive. Seeking medical treatment is extremely important, and even if you do not think that your injuries after a car accident require medical care, you should at least be checked out by a doctor. Do not let the cost of obtaining medical care deter you from getting the help you need.
Additional matters will need to be handled after your car accident, such as reporting the accident to the police, to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, your car insurance provider, and obtaining a copy of your Levittown police accident report. A Levittown car accident lawyer will be able to help you through this process by working with your insurance company, the other driver’s insurance company, and handling the required paperwork to get you through this tough time. Let the Levittown car accident lawyers at The Pearce Law Firm help you seek the compensation that you deserve for your car accident and personal injuries from those who are responsible for your accident.
