Distracted drivers are seen on Pennsylvania roads every day. Most times they are pretty easy to spot. They are the ones putting on makeup, fixing their hair, eating, reading or playing with their cell phones or other electronics. Their lack of attention to what is going on around them is obvious, as they struggle to remain in their lane, fail to follow traffic signals or signs or even cause accidents. When car accidents happen as a result of drivers being distracted, they may be held responsible for any losses suffered by their victims or -- in the event of fatality -- their victims' loved ones.
You were injured at work. There is no doubt about your injuries, where they happened and how severe they are. However, a workers' compensation judge still denied your claim for the benefits that you need while you are unable to work. It is easy to be frustrated about Pennsylvania's complex, bureaucratic workers' comp. system. However, it is important that you don't lose hope. You have options, including filing an appeal.
A Pennsylvania firefighter lost his life following a tragic accident while en route to a house fire. This incident occurred just recently in Harrisburg. As he was on the job when this event occurred, his family may pursue workers' compensation death benefits to help cover their losses. They may also seek further compensation and closure by filing a civil claim against the driver believed responsible for the car crash.
While there have been days of gorgeous weather, bringing hopes of an early Spring, it is still the winter season, which brings along with it various road hazards. Winter driving is not easy, even for the most skilled drivers. There are certain precautions that must be taken in order to prevent car accidents. Unfortunately, as seen after one of the most recent snow storms, weather-related collisions are very much an issue in Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania law enforcement officers are charged with protecting the public. One way in which they do this is by enforcing traffic laws. Another method they use is constantly being on the lookout for those they suspect of drunk driving.
