One killed in Berks County motorcycle crash on June 25

Two important rules of the road are obeying traffic signals and watching for motorcycles. Respecting these two rules makes the road safer for everyone. When either or both of these rules are violated, the chances go up that a crash with catastrophic injuries will happen. According to Pennsylvania State Police, an accident involving a traffic signal and a motorcyclist left one man dead on June 25 in Berks County.

Important steps to take following a car accident

Following a car accident, it is important for victims in Pennsylvania to know what steps to take to preserve important personal injury legal protections they may want to pursue at some point following the accident. It is essential for victims to understand their legal rights when they have been harmed in a car crash caused by the negligence of another party.

Pennsylvania bullish on self-driving cars despite crashes

A series of crashes involving self-driving cars -- such as the March accident involving a driverless Uber vehicle in Pittsburgh -- has garnered scrutiny from both lawmakers and the media. Arizona banned Uber from testing after one of the company's autonomous vehicles killed a woman in Tempe. However, Pittsburgh did not follow suit. It was not until Uber voluntary stopped the program in the city that testing of its self-driving vehicles was halted.

1 of 6 traffic fatalities in Pennsylvania involves a motorcycle

Summer means that motorcycle enthusiasts in Pennsylvania will be hitting the roads in much greater numbers. Even though motorcyclists typically only ride with frequency in warmer months, they unfortunately account for a disproportionate number of the state's annual traffic fatalities. This is largely because a motorcycle affords its occupants significantly less protection than a car or a truck, making a motorcycle accident a far more dangerous occurrence for the rider.

Berks county man dead, his wife injured, after head-on collision

Trying to get to the bottom of a situation or incident can have many twists and turns that can make it difficult to get to the root of the story. It can be the same with car accidents, sometimes it's a matter of putting the puzzle pieces together to get to the bottom of it. There can be several people involved or reasons behind a car accident, which is important when determining fault. Recently, a driver crossed over the center line of the highway and hit another driver and his passenger head-on.

What are the economic costs of car accident deaths?

Car accidents can have a dramatic emotional and economic effect on individuals and families. Medical expenses can be great, and families may have to deal with the death or injury of a loved one. But did you know that car accidents also have a major effect on the economy of Pennsylvania and our country generally? When we look at the issue this way, it can bring into focus the devastating effect of car accidents on the Keystone State.

We provide advocacy and advice to car accident victims

While artificial intelligence technology has the potential to improve the lives of people in Berks County, there is often a great deal of trial and error involved in testing the technology. While it's harmless to test many kinds of technology, other kinds - such as autonomous vehicles - can be very risky to test. If there is a failure in an autonomous vehicle's safety features, the results can be disastrous.

After car accidents, autonomous car testing suspended

Uber has suspended the testing of autonomous vehicles in the state of Pennsylvania. While the technology may ultimately make roads safer, two recent, high-profile car accidents have shown that such vehicles may not be ready for travel on public streets and highways. State governments and the companies who built the vehicles appear to concur, as they've been pulled off the roads.
