Memorial Day weekend: a dangerous time to be on the road

Hopefully everyone in Berks County had a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend. The holiday is about honoring America's veterans, but it has also turned into a time to celebrate the beginning of summer with family and friends. It seems, however, that Memorial Day weekend is also the holiday with the most red light violations across the country. Though the National Coalition for Safer Roads' data was from 2013, it is very possible that Memorial Day will continue to be highly dangerous for drivers this year, too.

Outpatient surgical facilities have lax reporting requirements

There are a number of reasons why hospitals report medical mistakes. For one, it is often required by law, but it also helps to keep hospitals and doctors aware of the number of errors they are making. Reporting can also serve as a way to shame doctors into paying more attention so that they don't make surgical errors.

Apparent negligence causes massive Berks County trucking accident

As professionals, ordinary drivers expect truck drivers to operate their vehicles safely. It is not just that they are being paid to do so, but they have also gone through trainings and have considerably more experience driving than the average person on the road. Not only that, but tractor-trailers are huge and, fully-loaded, they can cause considerable damage to a car, pickup truck, SUV or motorcycle.

Drunk driver violates biker's right of way, causes fatal crash

When someone causes a fatal crash, many Reading families don't know what to do. Of course, they are devastate to learn that a loved one has died, but many don't realize that they can take that devastation and try to find a sense of closure by holding the other driver liable, There is the criminal route, pressing the prosecutors to charge the other driver, but there is also the civil system.

Fatal motorcycle accidents rose nearly 50 percent in Pennsylvania

It is getting to be the time of year when Reading residents will start to see motorcyclists out on the roads. After a long and cold winter, bikers are finally able to ride. What is especially interesting is that when gas prices go up, more people switch to motorcycles because they are far more efficient with their gas. What that also means, however, is that fatal motorcycle accidents tend to increase.
