Hey Fellas – What’s Going On? - Experienced Philadelphia Car Accident Lawyer Shouts Out To Philadelphia Police
As an experienced Philadelphia car accident lawyer who represents and has represented some of Philadelphia’s finest, I am not very happy with the state of affairs with the Philadelphia police on accident scenes in Philadelphia these days.
Just this morning on my way to work at approximately 11:00 a.m., I was walking down 11th Street when I saw a truck come by with a load of duct work non-secured and debris was being scattered on the road with a Philadelphia police officer near by when an accident occurred. The police officer drove right by and I was amazed (1) how the truck carrying the debris in a Beverly Hillbilly Jed Clampett style fashion could even be driving on the highways and (2) that the police never stopped to take any information or render assistance. Moreover, in recent weeks, I have had calls from a number of people who have been in car accidents, some of them being very serious, and there have been no police reports filed nor information taken or properly filed.
Now, either the police force is overtaxed and does not have enough police officers on the road, or our city is becoming more and more like the Wild West. Things are different now than they were years ago, and I am not sure what can be done about it but I plead for the Philadelphia police offices on the scene of accidents to try to do a better job and pay more attention to detail as people’s interests are at stake. Without the necessary information, which it is your duty to obtain as well as investigate, it makes everyone’s life more difficult.
