Bus accidents a risk for the faithful

Pennsylvania is home to a variety of religious communities. Many of these communities have a church or similar building where the faithful gather weekly to worship and enjoy the company and support of the congregation. Sometimes, members of the congregation do not have transportation to and from the church, and many churches do their best to accommodate the need. Unfortunately, many of these faithful are at risk for becoming victims in bus accidents. 

System flaws may increase likelihood of a truck accident

Pennsylvania drivers that have ever traveled a busy interstate can vouch for the fact that there are always large trucks whizzing by with the regular traffic. While many truck drivers go out of their way to make safety a priority, some drive in a dangerous manner that increases the risk of a truck accident. Unfortunately, it has come to light that when a truck accident happens, it is often the responsibility of the driver involved to report any pending charges to his or her employer. 

Motorcycle accidents can cause serious injuries

Though there isn't exactly a "motorcycle season," Pennsylvania riders look forward to getting back on the road each spring. Though certainly most riders treat safety as an absolute priority, motorcycle accidents can occur anytime rubber meets the road. Even if the accident is not the fault of the motorcycle operator, he or she may face blame for injuries suffered by a passenger. 

Car accident: First 72 hours critical for pain treatment

Many crash victims in Pennsylvania decline medical treatment because they have no open wounds or fractured bones. Visible injuries are often easier to treat than those that are hidden, which are usually only diagnosed when symptoms appear. Some internal and musculoskeletal injuries can remain hidden for days or even weeks after a car accident.

Car accident results in homicide charges

Pennsylvania drivers do their best to stay safe on the roads. Of course, there is always the potential for a car accident to occur, but obeying traffic laws and keeping up with vehicle maintenance can help prevent crashes. Despite the best efforts of drivers, crashes still occur across the state each day. Recently, a tragic fatal accident  resulted in some serious criminal charges against a driver. 

Motorcycle accidents a constant threat to riders

The sun is finally out in Pennsylvania, and motorcycle enthusiasts across the state are gearing up to hit the open road. While spring brings with it the opportunity to put some miles on the bike and enjoy the fresh air, it also carries increased risk of motorcycle accidents. Unfortunately, many crashes are preventable, but some drivers have little or no regard for the safety of others, putting lives at risk.
