Doctor performance reviews and medical malpractice cases

Many Berks County folks are probably all too familiar with the performance review process, where their bosses describe their performance for the year and provide feedback and numerical ratings about how they did their jobs.

After car accidents, autonomous car testing suspended

Uber has suspended the testing of autonomous vehicles in the state of Pennsylvania.

Wrongful death, criminal charges in tragic waterpark accident

Pennsylvania is home to many waterparks, large and small, indoors and outdoors. They must compete with other parks in the state, and the largest ones must compete on a nationwide basis. In the drive to attract more customers and remain competitive in the marketplace, waterparks design and build taller, longer and faster slides. Sometimes in the fervor to be the first, the tallest or the fastest, designers and parks cut corners and ignore the potential dangers their designs pose to the customers they're trying to attract.
