Philadelphia Car Accident Causes Multiple Injuries

Four people suffered serious personal injuries after an out-of-control cab ran on to the curb outside the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, CBS News reported in a story. Eyewitnesses told officials that the cab was speeding when it swerved to avoid another car changing lanes. The taxi clipped the side mirror before completely losing control and running onto the curb. The cab then struck a bicyclist before crashing into a light pole.

The impact of the collision sent the cab spinning into a pedestrian waiting to cross the street. He suffered severe leg injuries and the female bicyclist is reportedly in the hospital in critical condition with a skull fracture. A passenger in the cab was also treated for injuries and the cab driver is apparently in the hospital with serious injuries.

If you are a Philadelphia vehicle accident victim and have been seriously injured as a result of another person's recklessness or negligence, you have legal rights that should be upheld while a valid investigation is affectively conducted to find the cause of the accident. Some factors of determining the cause of an accident include examining road conditions, the condition of the vehicle involved (mechanical problem or auto product defect) or alcohol consumption (DUI).
