Tips for safer winter driving in Philadelphia

Philadelphia residents know that the weather can be unpredictable. Winter poses some serious driving hazards that can lead to accidents for unwary drivers. Below are some tips to consider when driving in inclement, wintry conditions.

Motor vehicle accidents in Pennsylvania don't have to occur

Around the holidays, there seems to be an upsurge in motor vehicle accidents in Pennsylvania. This may be attributable to the uptick in drinking while at holiday parties and festivities and then getting behind the wheel of a car. Getting injured due to the careless and negligent driving of another person is something no one should have to face. That is why the authorities are reminding us through the holidays to "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over."

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.

Seniors surrendering the keys prevents car accidents

There are many senior citizens in and around Philadelphia who are perfectly safe and capable drivers. But it's a sad fact that the aging process does tend to dull once-sharp senses and slow reaction time, both of which can be crucial to avoiding motor vehicle accidents.

Philadelphia car accident claims 4th victim

In a sad update to the recent story of the deaths of three children on a Philadelphia street corner, their mother has now succumbed to the critical injuries she suffered as the four were run down by an out-of-control car stolen by two armed carjackers.

Philadelphia car accident kills 3 after carjacking

Last month in Philadelphia, a carjacking took an especially deadly turn when two armed men who allegedly seized a Toyota 4Runner at gunpoint from a female real estate agent plowed into a group of people. Two women and three children were selling fruit at a sidewalk stand in order to raise funds for a north Philadelphia church playground.
