Car accidents: Several injured in Pennsylvania wreck

Police say charges can be expected in the case of a collision in Rayburn on Jan. 18. Pennsylvania authorities are still investigating the crash, but they say an 18-year-old male driver could stand to be charged for his material contribution to the crash. As with most car accidents resulting in injuries, state law also allows for the possibility of the victims filing personal injury lawsuits in civil court. 

Does my right to know about dangers affect workers' compensation?

Certain workplaces can be riddled with hidden dangers. In Pennsylvania, workers have the right to know about hazardous or toxic substances that might be present in their workplace. However, being aware of certain hazards will not necessarily prevent a workplace accident, and as such has no affect on whether a person qualifies for workers' compensation.

Treat your prescription drugs with care or risk criminal charges

Your doctor prescribed you a medication that was necessary given your symptoms at the time. You (or your insurance) paid for the consultation with the doctor, as well as for the prescription medication that you picked up from the pharmacy. You may think that the pills you received are yours to do with as you see fit, but that simply isn't the case.

Are field sobriety tests part of every drunk driving arrest?

Being pulled over by the police is rarely a good experience, but it can be especially stressful when a person is accused of driving under the influence. When Pennsylvania police believe that someone is drunk driving, they will usually ask that he or she participate in a series of field sobriety tests. These are a series of physical and verbal tasks that most people will be asked to undergo before determining if more advanced testing -- such as a Breathalyzer -- is necessary, or if there is probable cause for an arrest.

Do criminal defense plans cover professional license suspension?

Your career is more than just important to you -- it is the key to your livelihood. If you rely on a license to practice your profession and are facing criminal charges, your professional license could be on the line. Constructing a solid criminal defense foundation can be key to maintaining your profession and your career.
