Avoid a parking lot car accident this holiday season

The holiday season is here, and malls and stores will be buzzing with activity as Berks County shoppers tackle their gift lists. As motor vehicle activity increases in area parking lots, the danger to pedestrians can dramatically increase. It is important for everyone to keep a proper lookout while navigating busy parking lots.

Liability for damages from hit-and-run accidents

Motorists in Berks County who negligently injure others may be required to pay compensation to their victims. Negligence may be found when a defendant breaches a duty he or she owed to the victim. There are a number of bad acts that could be determined to breach a duty to a victim. One of these is the act of improperly leaving the scene of a car accident. This is often called a hit and run.

What to do right after a car accident

A car accident can be a very confusing, even traumatic experience for a Berks County resident. Even if a person hasn't suffered any obvious injuries, it can be hard to deal with.

This blog post will discuss this in a little more detail.

The settlement of a car accident claim: pros and cons

When a Berks County resident suffers injury in a car accident and the injury is due to the fault of another party, there are a number of ways that the situation could be resolved. If the parties do not agree on the amount of damages that the responsible party should pay, the situation could be resolved either with a trial or with some other form of dispute resolution. Alternatively, the parties could negotiate with each other the amount of damages that should be paid. If the parties reach an agreement on this issue, it is called a settlement. This blog post will discuss settlements in a little more detail.

According to police, a motorist driving in the wrong lane injured seven people in Pennsylvania a few weeks ago.

Fault and liability in car accident claims

Berks County residents know that sometimes, among the parties to a car accident, one has to pay compensation to the other. This is because the law sometimes assigns liability to people involved in car accidents if they are proved to have been negligent. This is similar to many other cases of injury, such as slip-and-fall accidents. It is important for our readers to know about how fault and liability work in the case of car accidents.
