Pedestrian dies due to motor vehicle accident injuries

Pedestrians are inherently vulnerable to injuries and wrongful death when they are hit by a car. These accidents can happen when the person is crossing in the crosswalk and obeying all the basic rules for pedestrian safety. Because these people are in such danger for serious injuries and death, it is important for the injured person and his or her family to understand whether it happened because of recklessness, due to an unfortunate circumstance, because of a driver's negligent actions or for any other reason. They must also know their rights to seek compensation through a legal filing.

Motorcyclist suffers serious injuries in hit-and-run accident

The roads in Pittsburgh can be dangerous regardless of what type of vehicle a person is using, but it can exponentially dangerous for those who are on a motorcycle. The combination of reckless driving on the part of those in conventional vehicles, distracted driving, failing to follow the law and ignoring traffic signals can cause motorcyclists to be injured in a car accident. Those who have been hurt in this type of crash should be aware of their rights to seek compensation in a legal filing.

Important points about repayment plans with a Chapter 13

For people in Pennsylvania who are filing for bankruptcy, the circumstances will dictate which chapter they will use. While Chapter 7 is a liquidation and is often viewed as the easiest course of action, some debtors want to keep a home and a motor vehicle. They are also wage earners meaning that the courts will steer them toward a Chapter 13 bankruptcy instead. With Chapter 13 there are repayment requirements. However, the debtor might not fully understand certain aspects such as how the repayment plan is structured, how much must be paid, how long the payment plan will last, and what happens if the payments are not made.

Can I qualify for Chapter 11 as an individual?

In most instances of personal bankruptcy, an individual evaluates the advantages and drawbacks of using either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. These two forms of bankruptcy actually account for more than 99 percent of all individual bankruptcies filed in the United States each year.
