Can Pennsylvanian homeowners be liable for an injured trespasser?

It is not uncommon for homeowners in Pennsylvania to have visitors enter and remain on his or her property. This could be a simple event that could have no adverse effects. However, if there are dangers or hazards on the property, liability could be placed on a homeowner for the injuries suffered by the guest. Does the same homeowner liability extend to injured trespassers?

How can you protect yourself on a snowmobile?

Last week, we talked about some common injuries airplane passengers might experience. This week, we're taking a look at injuries that occur on or around snowmobiles and how you might avoid them. For most residents of Pennsylvania, a few weeks of warm weather will linger before the cool days of fall. With weeks or even months before the first snow falls, you have time to prepare snow equipment and vehicles and brush up on safety practices.

Products liability: Protecting Pennsylvanians from defects

Whether a product is used on a daily basis, the ability of Pennsylvanians to interact with a dangerous product is not based on the frequency of its use. Simply put, any type of product could be potentially dangerous, if a manufacturing or design error occurred, even if the product was not used right away or often. When a Pennsylvania consumer is harmed by a dangerous product, it is important that he or she understands that they might have the right to pursue a cause of action for the injuries, damages and losses caused by the defective or dangerous product.

Purpose of the Consumer Product Safety Act

Whether it was an item recently purchased or not, residents in Pennsylvania use consumer products on a daily basis. From the toothbrush used to clean a person's teeth to the produce a person eats at meals, the cup used to carry a beverage and the vehicle a person drives from destination to destination, these are all products commonly encounter by consumers. While these items seem relatively safe, certain events can occur causing these items to create an unreasonable risk of injury to consumers.

How are intersections made safer for motorists?

An inattentive driver could make for a very dangerous experience on the roadway. If a motorist is not properly paying attention, the person may travel through an intersection without stopping or yielded at a posted sign or signal. Running a red light or traveling through a stop sign could be the cause of a serious and even fatal collision, causing many to question what could be done to reduce dangerous intersections in Pennsylvania and other states across the nation.
