Berks County Personal Injury Attorney
Have you been injured in a Berks County accident? Perhaps your accident involved a motor vehicle—a car or a truck, or as a pedestrian, a motorcyclist, or a bicyclist who was hit by a motor vehicle. If you were in a vehicle in Berks County, PA, your accident might have occurred on an Interstate or highway, such as I-78, US 222, PA 10, PA 100, or PA 737. You may have been on more rural or city streets, such as White Oaks Lane, Ziegler Road, Tuckerton Road, or Berkley Road.
You may have been riding your bicycle or motorcycle, or even walking in a downtown area, on a rural road, or to a park such as Gring’s Mill Recreation Area, Antietam Lake Park, or Berks County Park. Particularly if you were walking or were on a bicycle or motorcycle, the chances that you were seriously injured, increase exponentially because you have no protection from a 3,000-pound vehicle. There are many other types of injuries caused by negligence, such as nursing home injuries, medical malpractice injuries, construction site injuries, dog bites, slip and falls, or work injuries.
