Pennsylvania state trooper charged in drunk driving accident

Pennsylvania residents tend to hold law enforcement officers to a higher standard than other citizens. When an individual chooses a career path dedicated to serving and protecting others, we expect that he or she will carry those traits into their off-duty lives, as well. However, the recent arrest of a Pennsylvania state trooper on suspicion of causing a death in a drunk driving accident has many in the area reconsidering this assumption.

Wrongful death claim could follow criminal trial

One Pennsylvania family may be feeling a sense of relief following news that the driver who struck and killed a little girl will stand trial in the matter. The incident took place the night before Thanksgiving 2012 in suburban portion of Philadelphia. A Bucks County judge recently ordered that the case against the driver be moved to county court. It is possible that a wrongful death claim could follow the criminal trial.

BMW recall could prevent fatal accidents in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania BMW drivers may be aware of the recently announced recall of the company's 1-Series ActiveE vehicles. The cars were a part of a BMW test line, and were leased to consumers beginning in Jan. 2012. The manufacturer has identified serious flaws in the vehicle, and has issued a recall in the hopes of avoiding injuries or fatal accidents connected to the issue.

Pennsylvania man sentenced for role in fatal accident

In the aftermath of a tragic loss, Pennsylvania families cope in different ways. For some, the process involves a slow path from shock and grief to eventual acceptance of their loss. For others, the grieving process is stalled by a deep rooted need for a sense of justice in the matter. In cases in which a fatal accident is caused by the negligence of another party, feelings of injustice surrounding the event can have lasting negative effects on the normal process of grief and recovery.
