Are some roads car accident prone? State police say yes

Pennsylvania state police have recently confirmed that some roadways within the Keystone State have a statistically higher number of crashes than others. Obviously, there is potential for a serious car accident anywhere the rubber meets the road, but there are apparently several factors that increase the risk on certain stretches of road. In an effort to raise awareness and encourage drivers to be extra cautious, police have offered some inside knowledge for drivers. 

SUV accidents: bigger isn't always better

Choosing a vehicle can be a difficult task. In states like Pennsylvania, where a driver may have to navigate through all sorts of weather conditions over the course of a year, an SUV may be an attractive choice. These vehicles are often featured in commercials that show an SUV hauling an entire family comfortably while climbing a precarious mountainside or crossing a small stream, but advertisers do not often feature realistic looking SUV accidents

Can a "bright" idea prevent an auto accident?

Automotive technology has progressed over time, making today's cars far safer than their earlier predecessors. Each year, manufacturers have added and tweaked most standard vehicle features to decrease the likelihood of serious injury or death in the event of an auto accident. The state of Pennsylvania has even become a place where self-driving cars are tested. Recently, one company launched a new product to improve a vehicle feature that has remained relatively unchanged since it's inception. 

New technology looks to prevent motorcycle accidents

Pennsylvania may still be in the throes of winter, but many people are already looking forward to spring. While there are no laws that prevent drivers from riding a motorcycle through the winter months, many enthusiasts choose another mode of transportation to avoid exposing themselves and their motorcycles to inclement weather, freezing temperatures, and the salt and ciders often used to prepare the road surface for snow and ice. The tech industry is also looking forward to "motorcycle season," and one company is touting cool new gear that could help prevent motorcycle accidents. 

Family of truck accident victim must seek own justice

One might assume that if police identify the person responsible for a fatal crash, criminal charges will be filed against that individual. This is not always the case, even if the evidence is fairly straightforward. A local hero was killed in a recent Pennsylvania truck accident, but his family may have to seek justice on their own. 

Bus accidents: Are you at risk?

When groups of people have a common destination, it can be convenient to take a bus and travel together. While this popular method of transportation certainly has its merits, it also comes with certain risks. Bus accidents can turn a road trip into a catastrophe, often leaving victims injured and stranded in an unfamiliar place. A recent Pennsylvania crash in Mount Pleasant Township illustrates this risk. 

Can you file a car accident claim against a deceased driver?

The Keystone State is ready to roar into the 20s, recently closing out the decade and welcoming a brand new year. Some people make resolutions or set goals for what they'd like to achieve, and others enjoy reminiscing about favorite moments of years past. No matter the specifics, people generally focus on positive things, and certainly do not anticipate stressful matters like suffering injury and needing to file a car accident claim
