When there is a car crash in Berks County, it is possible that there might be injuries and even fatalities. An accident between two or more vehicles at least provides a certain amount of protection to the passengers. When there is an auto accident involving a vehicle and a pedestrian, there is a substantial chance for serious injury. Along with that comes the possibility of a long hospital stay, the need for surgery and other treatment, and the inability to return to work. The person, if he or she survives, might need to be cared for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This is why it is important to understand how to pursue a personal injury case.
A man who had drawn a certain level of notoriety because of his activities as a dance leader for a minor league affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies was injured after being hit by an SUV. The 32-year-old man was transported to the hospital and said to be in critical condition with head injuries and leg injuries. The accident occurred after 7:30 p.m. The 28-year-old driver of the SUV stopped at the scene and charges are not expected to be filed in the crash.
Even in car-pedestrian accidents that are not deemed to be due to legal violations, that does not eliminate the driver's responsibility. The apparent injuries in this accident have resulted in the man being hospitalized with significant injuries. That might lead to a variety of lifelong problems that can be difficult to overcome and will need financial help to cover. Insurance companies will frequently make an offer to settle cases like this to avoid what can be costly litigation. These offers are rarely sufficient to cover everything that must be paid for hospitalization and other expenses.
The minor league team and others have been working on a financial drive to accrue money to pay for his medical care. Even with what they have amassed, it is a long road ahead for him to recover and he is still in danger. It is important that a crash reconstruction be done with the interests of the man and his family in mind. For that, the car accident victim and his family should make certain to protect themselves by discussing the case with an experienced attorney as soon as possible so they can think about filing a lawsuit.
