How likely are patients to receive a wrong or delayed diagnosis?

Although going to the doctor is not the most enjoyable time for most residents in Pennsylvania, it is often required to receive the necessary care and treatment for an illness or disease. For most patients, much trust is put in a doctor, surgeon or medical staff. Because he or she has medical education, training and experience, patients expect them to properly diagnose and treat them. However, this unfortunately does not always occur.

Pennsylvania turnpike multi-car crash involves overturned truck

Being involved in a collision is often a serious event. When a crash involves a large vehicle such as a semi-truck, it is likely that the accident will involve multiple vehicles, resulting in a massive accident site. A truck crash not only impacts those directly involved, but also affects numerous travelers on the roadway. When a crash involves an overturned truck, this often means a huge clean up and a large investigation site. Road closures help with the investigation process, helping those harmed in the incident better understand the cause and liability in the crash.

The severity of Pennsylvanian commercial truck crashes

As a previous post highlighted, Pennsylvanian truck safety is imperative. However, despite the efforts to address the causes of truck crashes, such as driving errors, serious and fatal trucks still occur. Commercial vehicles such as semi-trucks and 18-wheelers play an important role in society, which makes it vital to understand the severity of the situation.

Could new technology reduce truck accidents?

Residents in Pennsylvania are aware of the important role the trucking industry plays in interstate and intrastate commerce. Seeing trucks on the roadways means that goods and material are being timely transported to their destination. Trucks on the roadways also means encountering certain dangers and hazards. Although federal trucking regulations and specialized technology have worked to address the concerns and hazards involved in the trucking industry, this does not eliminate the occurrences of truck accidents.

Proving liability after a slip-and-fall accident

A Pennsylvanian slip-and fall accident often happens suddenly, causing victims to deal with unsuspecting injuries. These injuries are not only physically debilitating, but could also impact the victim emotionally, mentally and financially. If a property owner fails to take care or to guard visitors from hazards and dangerous conditions that are known or should have been known, the property owner could be held liable for all resulting injuries.
