When Pennsylvania residents are injured in an accident, most people probably think of car accidents as the cause. However, each year thousands of people are injured in a number of other different ways, including injuries caused by defective products. Anyone who is injured in this manner may be able to pursue a claim under "products liability" law.
Being in an accident can be frightening for any Pennsylvania resident, but the days, weeks, months and even years afterward can be difficult as well when the accident victim suffers a significant injury. Whether it was a car accident, a workplace accident or an accident caused by a defective product, among many other causes, a personal injury can seriously disrupt a person's life.
Young people from kindergarten-age to college-age have been heading back to school in recent weeks. While most are probably lamenting the end of summer, it can be an exciting time as well. But, with the end of summer vacation, that means that many more younger drivers, especially teenage drivers, are going to be on the roads again. High schoolers and college students alike should remember to avoid using their cellphones or engaging in any other distracting conduct while driving.
