Welder killed in workplace accident

Workplace accidents can happen at any type of workplace. This is true whether the work involves heavy machinery or sitting in a cubicle. One thing is certain, a family that has suffered the loss of a loved one in a fatal workplace accident has the right to consider a legal filing to be compensated for the wrongful death.

Helping victims of hit-and-run pedestrian accidents

Several previous posts on this blog talked about the risks inherently involved in a Berks County resident's choice to walk along and across the area's roads, crosswalks and sidewalks. After all, although pedestrians generally have the right of way, there is always the chance that a pedestrian will wind up getting struck by a negligent driver who was either speeding, under the influence of alcohol or simply not paying attention.

Number of fatalities of pedestrians in a car crash growing

Any form of car crash in Pennsylvania and across the U.S. can cause significant damage to those involved. Particularly vulnerable are those who are pedestrians. Since a pedestrian can be severely injury or killed in an auto accident, it is important that drivers keep a close eye out for them and adhere to all the traffic signals and laws. Unfortunately, that does not always happen. Studies are looking into motor vehicle crashes and how often pedestrians are involved.

The dangers of truck driver fatigue

The residents of Berks County often have to share the area's roads with semi-truck and other large commercial vehicles. While what these vehicles do for both the local and national economies are important, the importance of their work does not change the obligation of the drivers of these vehicles, and their employers, to ensure that they keep the roadways safe for those traveling around them.

When there is a car crash in Berks County, it is possible that there might be injuries and even fatalities. An accident between two or more vehicles at least provides a certain amount of protection to the passengers. When there is an auto accident involving a vehicle and a pedestrian, there is a substantial chance for serious injury. Along with that comes the possibility of a long hospital stay, the need for surgery and other treatment, and the inability to return to work. The person, if he or she survives, might need to be cared for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This is why it is important to understand how to pursue a personal injury case.

How to deal with the aftermath of a lost love one

Everybody has a different way to cope with the tragic death of a loved one. In most cases, the death of a family member or friend is a result of either a long-term illness or old age. This gives us time to contemplate death and the inevitable. In these situations, although never easy, if it does not come as a surprise, it may actually feel like a relief, especially if the recently deceased was suffering during his or her final days or weeks or months.
