Much the same applies if you are grieving over the wrongful death of a loved one in a car accident. Although money can never fully compensate you for losing a loved one, money can solve many problems that might otherwise crush you.

Alan J. Tauber is a prominent car accident lawyer in Philadelphia, PA who represents auto accident victims in both PA and NJ. You don’t need to worry about money. It is the quality of your claim that matters, not the size of your bank account.

The Most Common Causes of Car Accidents

Following is a list of some of the most common causes of car accidents:

Person holding their neck

Intoxicated Driving

This includes driving under the influence of alcohol, marijuana, other illegal recreational drugs, or legal prescription drugs.

Distracted Driving

Typically, distracted driving means texting while driving, or otherwise using your mobile phone while driving. This term can also refer to other activities such as arguing while driving or shaving while driving.

Aggressive Driving

Some people drive aggressively when they are angry or impatient. Running red lights and tailgating ate two common forms of aggressive driving.

Your chances of winning a personal injury lawsuit can improve if you can show that the other driver was breaking the law at the time of the accident. A Philadelphia car wreck lawyer can help you take maximum advantage of this.

What Damages Can You Recover After a Car Accident in Philadelphia?

Pennsylvania car accident damages include several components, both tangible and intangible. Following are some of the most common components of damages in a car accident case:

  • Medical bills (past, present, and future);
  • Lost earnings (past, present, and future);
  • Physical pain and suffering;
  • Mental anguish;
  • Property damage (to your car, for example);
  • Punitive damages (not usually awarded even if you win the case, however).

Wrongful death damages differ from the above-listed personal injury damages, but they are typically substantial. Practical limitations on damages include insurance coverage limits and the defendant’s personal financial limitations.

A Philly auto accident attorney can help you recover far more than you would likely recover on your own.

What Our Clients Say

Alan personally handled the investigation in my case that uncovered explosive facts about one of the defendants which had an important impact on the settlement of the case. His personal commitment made all the difference.
After other lawyers rejected my case, Alan saw the merit, did the needed investigation and won me a settlement I thought I might never see.
Alan's never say die attitude led to him discovering the existence of a second insurance policy that covered the accident and nearly tripled the settlement value in our case. It has had a big impact on our lives. As far as I am concerned, Tauber Law is the best Philadelphia personal injury law firm out there.

Why Should You Hire Tauber Law?

Not all Philly auto accident lawyers are the same. Here are some reasons to choose us:

  • We are compassionate and approachable. Our goal is to always be available when you need us.
  • Our strong reputation of winning in court encourages defendants and insurance companies to settle out of court rather than face us in court. This could save you a lot of time.
  • We can more than hold our own in negotiations with any insurance adjuster. Ultimately, however, only you can approve a settlement.
  • We can investigate your claim and use the court system to gather strong evidence that can prompt the opposing party to offer a generous settlement.
