Teen drivers and motorcycle accidents

Young or inexperienced drivers have a higher chance of being involved in an accident than more experienced drivers. Though being aware of the laws of the road and being educated about safe driving practices can go a long way to help a new Pennsylvania driver, there is an increased risk of a crash with a teen behind the wheel. Though sometimes, a little fender-bender can be a frightening but relatively harmless learning experience, other more serious crashes, like motorcycle accidents, can change or end lives forever. 

Bus accidents: Are you at risk?

Many Pennsylvania residents are fortunate enough to live in an area that has plenty of public transportation available. These days, especially in urban areas, there is a growing shift away from owning a personal vehicle. Many people have chosen to take advantage of ride-share programs, rental vehicles or public transportation to get from place to place. Though public transportation certainly is not a new idea, technology has advanced to make these options, such as buses, safer and more efficient. Still, there are still risks associated with public transportation, with bus accidents being chief among them. 

Despite helmet use, motorcycle accidents can kill

Pennsylvania has a thriving community of motorcycle enthusiasts. The Keystone State offers such scenic roadways, riders find it hard to imagine, as long as the weather cooperates, a better way to spend a sunny afternoon. Far from being purely recreational, many people use motorcycles as a fun and efficient way to get from place to place, but even a seasoned rider knows that motorcycle accidents can turn deadly in the blink of an eye. 

SUV accidents: The deadly truth

The clocks have sprung forward, and Pennsylvania residents are looking forward to nice weather and longer days. After being cooped up for months, the prospect of getting out and about is certainly a tantalizing notion. Unfortunately, getting behind the wheel always carries a risk. Each year, car, truck, and SUV accidents continue to claim lives across the Keystone State. 

Bizarre car accident leaves fellow motorists shaken

Pennsylvania drivers might admit that when they see the police signaling to pull over in the rear view mirror, the nerves kick in. Even when a driver is not certain why the police might be stopping him or her, it is important to comply according to the law. If a driver attempts to evade law enforcement in such a situation, a serious car accident can result.

Bus accidents: A parent's worst nightmare

Pennsylvania families often rely on school buses to shuttle children back and forth to school each day. When a child boards a school bus, his or her life is in the hands of the bus driver, and parents can only hope the driver will do everything possible to get a child to his or her destination safely. Most drivers do their best, but bad choices on the part of some bus drivers can directly contribute to bus accidents that cause injury and trauma to children.
