National Teen Driver Safety Week approaches in Pennsylvania

On October 19, National Teen Driver Safety Week begins in the United States. This is a time for focusing on keeping young drivers safe on the road, and one of the points of emphasis this year should be the use of cellphones and other mobile devices. After all, a recent survey found that young drivers -- though some were older than teens -- end up being distracted by these devices more often than older drivers, leading to more crashes and near-crashes.

Commercial car accidents do not always involve semi-trucks

Victims who have been injured in truck accidents in high-traffic areas should not have to suffer through their personal injury and emotional distress on their own. The fact is that many people who have been injured in Philadelphia auto accidents with commercial vehicles may be entitled to financial compensation for their injuries and related losses. Personal injury cases can be high-stakes legal matters that require tenacity and dedication; choosing the right attorney to represent you after your car accident is a critical step.

Fatal accident involves Pennsylvania State Troopers

When law enforcement vehicles are on the roads, we expect the officers, deputies and troopers to drive safely and not endanger others. Unfortunately, accidents involving patrol vehicles do happen. On July 5 at about 3:30 a.m., a Pennsylvania State Police vehicle was involved in a fatal accident in Fairview Township. There were two troopers in the 2013 Ford Explorer. According to reports, the trooper driving the vehicle was at fault in the accident.

A Philadelphia jury has ordered the Honda Motor Co. to pay more than $55 million for a near-fatal accident that left a York man paralyzed. The victim, age 57, successfully argued that the faulty seat belt design inside his Acura Integra led to his permanent, catastrophic injury. The victim was involved in the serious motor vehicle accident in 2010.
