Pennsylvania pedestrian deaths in motor vehicle accidents rising

Pedestrians are at risk of being injured in motor vehicle accidents in Pennsylvania and across the nation. With the number of drivers who are distracted behind the wheel, operating their vehicles in a reckless manner, under the influence, or drowsy, pedestrians must take great care when they are crossing the street and even walking on the sidewalk. Unfortunately, even the most cautious people can be injured or lose their lives in a pedestrian accident.

Motor vehicle accidents can happen without warning in Uniontown and the surrounding areas of Pennsylvania. This is especially true in the winter when it gets dark early, people are cold and in a rush to get to their destination, and slippery roads are a fact of life. What should be remembered about these crashes is that there is a wide range of outcomes and people can suffer life-changing injuries and death when they are involved in one. Since these crashes can be so problematic, understanding the importance of legal assistance to consider a lawsuit after an accident can be the difference between being adequately compensated and having financial issues due to circumstances out of one's own control.

Experienced guidance for car accident victims

Open the door, turn the keys, hit the road, arrive at your destination - it's the same day after day. Unfortunately, that simple routine can be shattered in an instant when a negligent driver causes a serious car accident. With the physical and mental anguish in involved, handling the aftermath of these types of incidents is not recommended. Instead, seeking the assistance of an experience attorney can help you proceed in a positive manner.

Head-on motor vehicle accidents often lead to fatalities

When drivers in Uniontown and throughout Fayette County are on the road, the last thing they are expecting is to be in a crash. Although it is always a possibility, there is a belief that simply paying attention to the road, adhering to the rules and being as safe as possible will prevent motor vehicle accidents and their aftermath. Unfortunately, this is not the case. One of the worst kinds of motor vehicle accidents is a head-on collision. For those who have been injured or lost a loved one in one of these accidents, it is crucial to understand how to pursue compensation through a legal filing.

Pedestrian-motor vehicle accidents common at one intersection

Motor vehicle accidents can happen at any location in Uniondale. These can involve vehicles crashing into one another, a crash between a vehicle and a bicyclist or a motor vehicle hitting a pedestrian. For people who are in one of these accidents, it can cause significant life changes with long-term damage, medical costs, lost wages and the need for extensive care, perhaps for the rest of their life. There can even be fatalities. While the randomness of a motor vehicle crash could lead to the perception that they happen in different areas, there are specific spots where it is known to be risky, especially for pedestrians. Those injured in this or any location should remember their rights to compensation in a legal filing.

Collision in Pennsylvania leaves school bus driver dead

Most of our readers in Pennsylvania are probably used to seeing the aftermath of car accidents on the side of the road, particularly around rush hour. After all, "fender benders" are fairly common. However, the sad reality is that deadly, multi-vehicle crashes are not all that uncommon either. One such recent accident resulted in the death of a school bus driver.

Safety Net

Several weeks ago, I published a blog article, "An Ounce of Prevention." The primary goal of the article was to encourage people to view automobile insurance differently. Not out of fear of being sued as big insurance would have them think, but from the perspective of prevention. In the legal sense, prevention occurs when you purchase the proper automobile insurance coverages to protect you and your family if injured by the negligence of another driver or, perhaps worse case scenario, the negligence of an uninsured or underinsured driver. I think of insurance in this context as providing a safety net. 

Head-on collision in Pennsylvania results in two deaths

We all know that head-on collisions occur sometimes, but no one probably expects to hear about a head-on collision occurring on an interstate highway. But, according to a recent report, that is exactly what happened in Pennsylvania on July 29 and the results were deadly.

An Ounce of Prevention

Benjamin Franklin said, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?" How many times did your mother warn you with that very statement? Of course, she was talking about your health - eating well, getting enough rest, perhaps using sun screen, and avoiding junk food. If modern medicine has taught us anything, it has taught us that Mom and Ben were right.
