Reduced rates in medical malpractice claims in Pennsylvania

Dealing with an illness is not uncommon for residents in Pennsylvania. For many, it is not a serious event, but for others, medical intervention is required. Whether it is for medicine or surgery, patients put much trust in the diagnosis and treatment of their doctor or surgeon. But when a medical error occurs, the patient could suffer greatly by worsening their condition or causing an unrelated illness or injury.

Steps to consider in a medical malpractice claim

It can be a scary feeling suffering from an injury, ailment or disease. Patients in Pennsylvania often seek the expert advice from a medical practitioner about a route of medical treatment. Whether they are prescribed a medication or have to undergo a medical procedure, our firm understands that if a member of the medical staff that treated them was negligent or made an error, the patient could suffer greatly. Whether it is a worsened condition or a new ailment, patients should understand their available recourse in the event of medical malpractice.

How do trucking regulations reduce truck driver fatigue?

Drivers in Pennsylvania understand that there is a growing concern about fatigued drivers. While it is apparent that various types of vehicles will travel during the late night hours and travel long distance, one vehicle that is frequently seen traveling on the roadways at all hours of the day and night are large trucks. These semi trucks and tractor-trailers often carry large shipments or deliveries a long distance, traveling through several states across the nation. In order to ensure the safety of truck drivers and other traveling on the roadways, federal trucking regulations have been put in place, but some residents question how these regulations prevent or reduce truck driver fatigue.

Understanding and preventing slip and fall accidents

It is not uncommon for residents in Pennsylvania to enter the property of another. Whether it is a house, restaurant, store or business, there is a certain expectation that the property owners have taken the steps necessary to avoid a serious injury to them. When a slip and fall incident occurs, the injured party could suffer greatly due to the negligence of the property owner.

Investigation continues for fatal Pennsylvania motorcycle crash

While fall weather is well on its way, residents in Pennsylvania will still witness some motorcyclists on the roadway. There might be less of these small vehicles on the roadways during the colder months, but motorists should still be aware of them on all types of vehicles on the roadways. It is not uncommon for these small vehicles to go unnoticed, and when a driver fails to take note of their surroundings by checking blind spots, mirrors and oncoming traffic. If drivers are not careful they could collide with a motorcycle causing a serious or even fatal crash.
