Drunk driving accident leaves one man dead in Pennsylvania

With all the distracted, drunk and reckless drivers out there, driving on Pennsylvania's roads is a risky endeavor. Even when you follow all the rules and drive as carefully as possible, there is always a chance that someone with whom you share the road isn't doing the same.

That appears to be the case in a recent accident that happened in Bucks County in late January. A man was driving a Kia Sephia north on Route 309 when a 2010 BMW 335i slammed head-on into his vehicle. The 24-year-old man who was driving the Kia was rushed to the hospital but succumbed to his injuries shortly thereafter. 

Rescuers tried to give aid to the woman who was driving the BMW, but she was uncooperative, creating a scene in the ambulance and rejecting the treatment. She was placed under arrest and charged with DUI, homicide by vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and vehicular homicide.

It's a tragic case, and it undoubtedly leaves a family mourning for this young man. They will not only have to deal with the heartache of losing a loved one; they may also have to shoulder the burden of medical expenses, funeral costs and lost wages. The BMW driver's insurance is designed to cover such expenses, but oftentimes insurance companies don't come through.

If you've lost someone dear to you in a car accident, it might be wise to seek the counsel of a personal injury attorney. A lawyer may be able to conduct an investigation into the crash and help you get the compensation you need.
