The frightening reality of bus accidents

As the school year drew to a close, a group of high school seniors embarked on a class trip. Accompanied by three chaperones, the students boarded a charter bus in their small town, and began their journey to a big city. They began to make their way through Pennsylvania, drawing ever nearer to their destination. They certainly must not have expected the nightmare that was about to unfold. Though buses are a common way for a large group of people to travel together, bus accidents can be especially devastating because of the large number of lives at stake. 

Driver ignores stop sign, causes fatal car accident.

After a winter that seemed as if it would never end, Pennsylvania residents are out and about, enjoying the warm rays of the summer sun. With so much to do and see across the Keystone State, it is no wonder that drivers may have noticed an increased amount of traffic. It is always important for drivers to obey traffic laws and signals because a fatal car accident can result from one careless mistake. 

Undiagnosed injury after car accident can reduce quality of life

Victims of Pennsylvania crashes can suffer physical and mental trauma, even in minor collisions. Sometimes, even a low-speed car accident can cause severe injuries, depending on factors such as where the passengers were seated and whether they wore their seat belts. While cuts and scrapes that are caused by shattered glass or other flying objects in the car are typically not severe, some other major injuries can be missed if not diagnosed immediately after the crash -- often causing long-term health problems.

Family's lobby for changes after fatal motorcycle accidents

A mother's heart is broken, and a family is mourning the loss of their loved one. This devastating loss resulted from a drunk driving accident, and a family is forced to relive this nightmare each time they lobby state lawmakers for a bill to impose stiffer penalties for repeat offenders. In Pennsylvania and in every other state, fatal motorcycle accidents caused by drunk drivers will forever impact families.

The risk of a car accident increases along I-81 corridor in PA

The increasing volume of traffic on a major interstate has proven that it is past time for the road to be expanded. The risk of being in a car accident along the I-81 corridor in Pennsylvania continues to rise because of constant congestion, traffic jams and increased truck traffic. Local officials agree that the time is now for the major thoroughfare to be widened in both directions all the way to the Maryland border.
