4-car accident in Pennsylvania sends three to hospital

A local man has been cited in connection with a devastating crash on May 11 that left three people seriously injured, including the driver and his passenger. Pennsylvania police responded to the car accident in the late morning. The driver has since been cited for unsafe speeds, though no court date has yet been set.

Plea accepted in deadly I-78 tractor trailer accident

Quite often, a defendant in a criminal case will enter a no contest plea to get their case resolved quickly. Such is the case in Northampton County Pennsylvania where a judge has accepted a no contest plea from the driver responsible for the deadly tractor trailer accident on I-78. The driver, who was sentenced to five years probation, states that he would like to put it all behind him. However, the fact that the criminal charges against him have been resolved does not necessarily end the matter.

Pennsylvania trooper involved in drunk driving accident, 1 dead

The law strictly forbids driving while intoxicated. Nobody would know that better than law enforcement officials who are paid to uphold the law. However, this did not stop one Pennsylvania state trooper from breaking this law. The trooper was arrested for causing a drunk driving accident that ended in one fatality last year.

Diagnostic errors cause most medical malpractice suits

The American healthcare system is widely held as one of the most advanced and proficient in the world. We are fortunate to have access to highly trained medical professionals, state-of-the-art facilities, and cutting-edge technology. Despite these advantages, however, our nation still experiences a high number of medical malpractice claims, in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. One recently released study examined the basis for those suits, and found that diagnostic errors account for as many as 28.6 percent of malpractice payments made to patients.
