I was in a drinking related accident and was breathalyzed after the police arrived, I am 19 years old. The police gave me no medical attention even though i had a severe concussion and gave me no documents nor said anything to me pertaining to criminal charges. I've recently found out I may be charged with underage drinking. Is this legal?

Yes. You can be charged (and obviously were.)

Yes, as you learned, underage drinking (less than age 21) is a crime in Pa. It is not as serious as DUI, but could still have some serious consequences: a fine, jail (rarely), and a suspension of your operators license.
There may be some questions concerning the legality of the use of a breathalyzer test in your case.
