Truck accident in Pennsylvania leaves man dead

Pennsylvania drivers often hear about the importance of being alert around big rigs. Tractor trailers frequently carry enormous loads that make them difficult to stop suddenly. However, the speed and maintenance of a truck may also play an important role in a crash, and when a truck accident causes injury or death, the driver may be held responsible.

Does technology really improve highway safety in Pennsylvania?

One of the newer weapons in the fight against traffic injuries and fatalities is the use of technology. Speed cameras on certain roads in Pennsylvania and red light cameras at intersections are certainly not loved by many motorists, and when the envelope arrives in the mail showing a picture of one's own car racing through a school zone, it can be aggravating. The real debate is whether these tools are accomplishing their goal: an increase in highway safety.

1 driver killed in truck accident after Rte. 22 collision

A group of firefighters recently pulled a man from a mangled pile of rubble after his pickup truck was smashed and driven into a concrete structure by a massive tractor trailer. However, the victim died in a Pennsylvania hospital just hours after the truck accident. The tractor trailer had reportedly gone through a red light and broadsided him on Route 22 in the western part of the state near the intersection with Route 66.

The laws of products liability in Pennsylvania may see some reformulation in future years. That is because the 3-D printing phenomenon will be placing more and more products on the market. The technology involves feeding a computer design into a machine that will produce or "print" a consumer product over and over, ready for sale and use right there on the spot. Accordingly, the laws of products liability may be subjected to new theories of responsibility or at least to new ways of perceiving the assignment of legal liability.
