Have you been injured on a highway in western Pennsylvania?

The western Pennsylvania area is a busy corridor for several important interstate freeways. As such, drivers are at risk for serious injury due to accidents with other drivers, interstate truckers or even with hazardous conditions due to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, PennDOT. 

Multiple people injured after truck crashes into stopped cars

People know that every time they drive there is a possibility that they will be in an accident, but most assume that they will travel safely. This is partly because they assume the other drivers on the road will also follow the rules and drive safely. However, when other drivers do not do this, accidents can occur and people can suffer injuries as a result.

Many riders are in motorcycle accidents every year

As the weather turns colder there are fewer motorcyclists on Pennsylvania roads, but they are still out there. That means that other motorists on the road need to stay vigilant in looking out for them and avoid causing motorcycle accidents. These accidents may not cause much damage to the drivers of the cars and trucks, but they can cause catastrophic injuries to the riders on the motorcycles. Many times the riders' lives will never be the same afterwards.

You might develop PTSD after a car accident

Many people in New Castle who have never been involved in car accidents assume the only injuries they should worry about are the ones they physically sustain. They may not realize crashes often cause considerable damage to the human psyche. Before you fall prey to the same assumption, take a few moments of your time to consider how a car accident can cause you to develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

What happens if a company does not have workers' comp insurance?

People are injured every day in Pennsylvania. Sometimes these injuries are purely the fault of the injured person, but many other times it is the fault of another individual or entity. The injured person generally will only be able to receive compensation for their injuries if it was the fault of the other another person. However, there is one area of life when a person may be able to receive compensation no matter who caused the accident. This area of life is while the person is at work.

Signs of drunk driving

No matter how safe of a driver you are, you cannot control other people's driving. You can only do your part in avoiding dangerous motorists on the road to reduce the risk of getting into an accident. One of these hazards is drunk drivers behind the wheel, who were responsible for 29 percent of traffic fatalities in 2015, reports the CDC.

The dangers of sharing the road with millennials

Millennial drivers receive a lot of flak related to texting, drinking, driving and otherwise making dangerous moves behind the wheel, but how much of the criticism they receive is actually warranted? According to USA Today, millennials are, in fact, engaging in many dangerous and distracted driving behaviors at far higher rates than those in other age groups, so you may be wise to be wary of sharing the road with them.
