Three injured in Berks County tractor-trailer crash on I-78

Everyone knows - or at least should know - that drivers should adjust their driving to drive safely in adverse weather conditions. This is true for the drivers of cars, and it is especially true for truck drivers, who have a greater responsibility due to the greater size and mass of their vehicles. Most truck drivers are very aware of this and exercise safe driving during winter weather events. Negligence and accidents still happen, however, as a recent trucking accident in Berks County may illustrate.

Icy sidewalks may be a dangerous property condition

It's winter in Pennsylvania, and that means snowfall is likely from now until springtime. Although snow can be fun for skiers and sledders, it can also be dangerous to driving or traveling on foot. State and local governments often handle the clearing of snow from public roads, but property owners may be responsible for removing snow from public sidewalks on their property.

We serve Berks County clients with medical malpractice cases

Doctors are thought of as healers, and it is a deeply held assumption that when you go to the doctor in Berks County, you will enjoy better health as a result of the visit. In the vast majority of cases, this is what happens. On the other hand, sometimes a doctor isn't able to do much for a patient. This is too bad, but it isn't the doctor's fault.

How might other drivers avoid a trucking accident?

Right now, large, heavy vehicles are plying Pennsylvania's highways. These semitrailer trucks are almost always driven by trained professionals who know what they are doing. Still, truck accidents do happen. It is important to drive safely on the streets, roads and highways of the Keystone State. By taking some simple precautions, drivers can reduce the chances of an accident with a truck.

One killed in hit-and-run accident

Hit-and-run car accidents are dangerous incidents in which the parties that caused the collisions leave the scenes without stopping to assess the damage that they have caused or to render aid to anyone who may have been harmed by the actions. They can happen between vehicles as well as between vehicles and bicycles or vehicles and pedestrians. A recent Pennsylvania hit-and-run accident had a tragic ending when the responsible driver fled and the victim died.

The elements of a medical malpractice case

The basis of a medical malpractice claim stems from the negligence of a medical practitioner inflicted upon another person whom a duty of care was owed. This may sound like a lot of legalese to a Pennsylvanian who is wondering if their doctor may have made a mistake in the administration of their care. The remainder of this post will break down the elements of a medical malpractice claim and will discuss how a person may pursue a medical malpractice claim in the civil courts.

Settlement is a possible outcome of a vehicle accident case

A car accident can change the whole course of a Pennsylvania resident's life. They may leave their house in the morning, prepared to drive their regular commute to work and before lunch find themselves in the hospital with serious injuries and multitude of medical costs. Vehicle accident victims and victims of other personal injury claims often consult with attorneys to learn about their rights to sue when others cause them to suffer losses and harm.

What happens if a trespasser is hurt on another's property?

During the holiday season, Pennsylvanians may receive a multitude of invitations to attend parties, get-togethers, and outings with friends and relatives. As they enter onto the properties of other individuals, they may be made aware of any potential dangers that lurk in those places. If they suffer harm from falls, trips, or other accidents while the invitees of the property owners, then they may have rights to compensation for their losses.

Other drivers may not adjust for wintery weather, but you can

You may be among the many people here in Pennsylvania who thinks snowfall and snow on the ground is a beautiful sight, until you have to drive in it. Sometimes road crews can't clear the roads fast enough, or part of the leftover snow ices over, which makes driving hazardous. Even roads that are simply wet after crews plow them can create a potential hazard.
