Now that it's April, Berks County residents know that summer and warm summer weather will soon be here. As people hit the roads, they will want to keep in mind a danger that we discussed last month: head-on collisions.
As we mentioned then, there had been two incidents in which drivers in the northbound lanes of Route 316 crossed over the median into the southbound lanes. In each case, the driver collided head-on with a car going southbound. Any number of factors, including drunk driving and distracted driving, can account for these kinds of head-on collisions. Head-on collisions can be very injurious and often fatal to the occupants of the cars involved.
A fatal accident victim's loved ones may have legal options to pursue a wrongful death claim against the party whose wrongful act led to the death. The attorneys at The Law Firm of Leisawitz Heller have helped many Pennsylvania families in their search for justice. In every case, we first seek to get a better understanding of what happened and who could be held legally responsible. We then consult with clients to discuss their options, including pursuing a wrongful death claim in many cases.
Our clients have benefited from our century's worth of legal experience, knowledge and skills. In addition to wrongful death claims, we also offer estate services to our clients. This holistic approach means that our clients don't need to worry about lack of coordination between law firms if they choose to let us handle these two aspects of their cases. For more information about what services we offer, check out the wrongful death page on our website.
