Automobile Accidents

The attorneys at Bruno Law represent injured clients who have been involved in automobile accidents in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  Automobile accidents can be caused by driver negligence, manufacturing defects, or dangerous roads.  No matter what the cause of the accident is, our attorneys are dedicated to recovering the maximum amount of monetary compensation for our clients.  We accept all of our automobile accident cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we don’t get paid for our services until we recover compensation for you.

Accidents caused by driver negligence.

It is the responsibility of anyone who operates an automobile to use reasonable care.  The failure to use reasonable care may constitute negligence, and the driver of the vehicle responsible for the crash is responsible for the damages and injuries suffered.  These damages include lost wages, loss of income, medical expenses, pain and suffering, as well as any other injuries caused by the collision.

Our attorneys have experience representing clients involved in crashes caused by:

  • Drivers distracted by cell phone use, texting, passenger(s), radio, or other sources
  • Drunk driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs
  • Driver fatigue
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Speeding/driving too fast for conditions
  • Drivers failing to signal
  • Drivers failing to look before changing lanes
  • Drivers running stop signs or red lights

Accidents not caused by the driver.

If an accident is caused or made worse by a manufacturing or product defect, such as failed brakes, tires, or faulty airbags, you may have a case against the manufacturer, distributor, and/or installer.  This type of case is covered under product liability law.

An automobile that was improperly repaired by a mechanic may be the cause of an accident.  In this case, the mechanic as well as the mechanic’s employer may be liable.

If an accident occurred because of a poorly maintained road, improper signs, objects left in the road or anything along these lines, government entities may be held liable.

What should I do?

Automobile accidents can result in very serious injuries, and some symptoms resulting from an accident may not appear for months or even years later.  If you have been involved in a car crash, it is important that a physician examines you as soon as possible even if you are only in minor pain following the accident.

Because there are millions of auto accidents nationwide each year, insurance companies that insure those at fault do everything they can do to limit the amount of money that accident victims receive.  Do not sign any documents or checks from an insurance company before you speak with an attorney.  Our attorneys are committed to helping victims receive full compensation.
