Accounting for the emotional trauma of an injury

Suffering an injury is a traumatic experience. You might have been in a car accident that left you with bruises and whiplash, or you might have fallen from a platform at work and broken several bones. Regardless of the severity of your injury, you are likely dealing with a host of physical repercussions that may be impacting your ability to work, live and perform daily tasks.

Most Pennsylvania drivers would probably agree that taking risks like speeding or driving under the influence of alcohol can end in disaster.

This was the case in a recent story that ended tragically for one man, and forever changed the life of another.
