While many Pennsylvania residents made their way to their Thanksgiving celebrations and Black Friday conquests this past week, others in the state reflected on those who could not be there to join in the holiday revelry. This was the case for the families of the victims who were injured or killed in a Montgomery County accident, Wednesday afternoon.

The investigation surrounding the tragic accident is still pending and no charges have been filed to date. According to sources, a stake-body truck rear-ended a delivery van, as it approached the intersection of Harleysville Pike and Keller's Creamery Road. The collision caused the van to go into the opposite lane and strike a passenger vehicle. The passenger in the car was killed and the driver was flown to Lehigh Valley Hospital Cedar Crest. The van's driver and the driver of the state-body truck were both taken to Abington Memorial for treatment.

In any personal injury case, it is important that you consult with a qualified attorney before speaking to the insurance company. In most cases, the insurance company representing the party who is responsible for the accident, must provide compensation to any victims filing a claim. As a result, such insurance companies may try to question you about the accident and get you to say things that could potentially hurt your case.

Injuries that are the result of a motor vehicle accident can have long-term consequences and necessitate extensive medical care. In cases where the accident leads to the death of a victim, the victim's family may decide to pursue compensation to cover the cost of any expenses or loss of wages that the deceased contributed to the household. If you have been involved in an accident, contact an attorney who understands the laws surrounding personal injury, right away.
