Philadelphia is the largest city in Pennsylvania and the fifth largest city in the country. With a higher population and a large tourist and commuter community come higher chances that accidents may occur. Some of the state and country’s largest highways cut through the city.
The above 2010 report from the Unified Judicial System of Pennsylvania showed that there was a slight increase in the number of docketed (which is when a case is set to be heard in court) civil cases in Philadelphia. Civil cases include those involving motor vehicle accidents‚ accidents in the workplace or on someone else’s property‚ and medical malpractice—to name a few. This however is still nowhere near what the numbers were like in 2004 when there were close to 60‚000 civil cases docketed.
Although the amount of civil cases have declined since 2004‚ that does not change the fact that accidents that cause personal injury or unintentional death can occur at any time. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported that 65 percent of injury related deaths were classified as unintentional‚ with the top three causes being motor vehicle accidents‚ falls‚ and accidental poisoning. Unintentional injuries also account for one out of every four people treated in an emergency department according to Women’s Health. It is important to speak with a Philadelphia personal injury lawyer if you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s carelessness.
