What happens when at-fault driver dies in car accident?

There may only be a few official weeks of summer vacation left, but the months of August and September remain popular for people to take one last get away before the cool weather of autumn takes hold. Simultaneously, Pennsylvania families prepare for a new school year, and drivers should be aware that there may be heavier traffic as travelers and school buses take to the roads. Busy roads can lead to a higher probability of crashes, and in many cases, a victim may want to file a car accident claim

Driver who caused car accident showed total disregard for victims

Pennsylvania laws require a driver that has been involved in an accident to pull to the side of the road as safely as possible, do his or her best to render aid to any victims, and call authorities immediately. These important steps can save lives. When a driver chooses to break the law after causing a car accident, there can be serious legal consequences. 

$1 million bail for man that caused car accident

When Pennsylvania families are out and about, older family members often insist that small children remain close by, especially when walking near traffic. It can be difficult for drivers to see small children. Unfortunately, one family lost a child despite taking such precaution, in a horrific car accident last spring. 

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. 

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.

What to do when a family member is killed in an auto accident

Pennsylvania residents know that there are all different types of families. No matter if a family unit is large, small, blended, close-knit or separated by distance, there is a common thread. To many people, family is the most important thing. Naturally, each family will experience welcoming new members and, sadly, mourning the passing of members over the years. In the case of a fatal auto accident, the unexpected loss can leave a family bewildered and overwhelmed. 

Repeat offender causes serious car accident

Being convicted of a DUI can result in serious penalties, such as jail time, fines and suspension of one's drivers license. Apparently, some offenders just never learn. Drivers that put other motorists at risk by continuing to drive under the influence are a serious threat to law-abiding citizens, unknowingly at risk to be hurt in a car accident while traveling Pennsylvania roads. 

Car accident casts shadow on farm show

It's that time of year again, and the Pennsylvania Farm Show is underway in Harrisburg. For many families across the state, the farm show has become an annual tradition. With so much to see and do, it boasts attractions for people of any age, and families look forward to making the trip each year. Unfortunately for one family, a serious car accident ruined the day they had been looking forward to.
