You may have noticed an increased amount of traffic on Pennsylvania roadways during the holiday season. This is typical in most states, as many people travel to and from parties, to go shopping and running various errands related to their family celebrations and festivities. From Thanksgiving through New Year's, you can expect traffic delays, busy roads and, at times, great risk for personal injury when negligent or reckless drivers are in your vicinity.
An otherwise uneventful trip to a local mall can turn disastrous if another driver is looking down at a cell phone instead of the road ahead and crashes into your car. No matter how safe and cautious a driver you are, another person's negligence can place you in harm's way. The aftermath of a car accident can be quite stressful, especially if you suffer one or more injuries. A strong support system can be a key factor in your recovery.
