Avoiding premises liability at holiday parties

Holiday parties are a great time for co-workers to let their hair down and enjoy each other's company in an environment more casual than the office or job site. Offering employees food and drinks is also a common way for Pennsylvania business owners and managers to show their appreciation to employees who have worked hard all year. However, office parties can also open a company to premises liability lawsuits if certain precautions are not taken.

Parents may claim products liability from dangerous toys

Long before the holidays arrive, consumers in Pennsylvania begin seeing ads for the latest toys. Even grocery stores often display toys, hoping to gain the last minute holiday shopper or impulse buyer. This is also the time of year when the Consumer Product Safety Commission releases its annual report of dangerous toys. All toys made and sold in the United States must meet certain standards of quality and safety. Companies that do not adhere to those standards risk injuring children and facing products liability claims.

Doctor's medical malpractice linked to 6 opioid deaths

People in Pennsylvania may switch doctors until they find one they like. When a family doctor is trusted for decades, it may be shocking to learn of accusations of medical malpractice. One doctor who worked as a general practitioner in another state is linked to the deaths of at least six of his patients.

Improved highway safety likely with harsher penalties for texting

The state of Pennsylvania has seen its share of tragedies on the highways. Recently, Governor Tom Wolfe took a stand to improve highway safety by signing a law to increase the penalties for distracted drivers who cause accidents. The law went into effect immediately, and some are especially hopeful that it will make a difference.
