Woman dies in rear-end in crash

After a car accident in Pittsburgh, there is always a chance that there will be severe injuries and fatalities. These happen when people least expect them and one of the worst calls that family and friends can receive is that there was an accident and a loved one suffered a wrongful death. To make these incidents worse, an accident resulting from a driver's negligent actions is something that did not need to happen. In the aftermath, amid the tributes to a loved one who is gone, the family must also make certain it protects its interests by considering a legal filing for compensation.

What should I know about the Chapter 13 repayment plan?

Pennsylvanians who find themselves deep in debt with seemingly no way out are wise to consider the benefits of bankruptcy. For those who have property they want to keep such as a home or a car and earn regular income, Chapter 13 is often the preferable option. The difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 is that Chapter 7 is a liquidation in which the debtor's property is sold to pay debts. With Chapter 13, that is not the case. The repayment plan is often a concern for people thinking about Chapter 13.

You should always see a doctor after any car accident

Almost everyone at some point in their lives experiences a car accident. The experience is so common now that it is highly unlikely that a person who drives or rides in vehicles at all would not experience such an accident at some point. In the developed world, it nearly counts as a basic human experience.

What does the trustee do in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

When a Pennsylvanian has financial problems that he or she cannot get out from under and would like to clear them, personal bankruptcy is a viable and legal option to do so. For those with significant unsecured debt and little property, the most common alternative is Chapter 7. There are many terms and participants that are part of a Chapter 7 filing, but one of the most important is the Chapter 7 trustee. The trustee plays a vital role in the case and it is wise for the debtor to know what the trustee does before moving forward.

Statistics for pedestrians' wrongful death in a crash remain high

When Pennsylvanians head out on the road, there will be inevitable dangers they will face. This is exponentially worse for pedestrians who are in constant jeopardy of being afflicted with debilitating injuries or a fatality because they were hit by a car. Since they are not accorded with the protection that a vehicle gives them, a pedestrian is at risk not just because of common factors such as speeding, recklessness or drivers under the influence. New dangers are cropping up every day in the form of distracted driving. Research is ongoing to examine how at risk pedestrians are and a new study from the Governors Highway Safety Association indicates how problematic this is.

Man suffers extensive injuries when pinned between vehicles

Car accidents in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas can happen for any number of reasons from negligence to distraction to driving under the influence. Some accidents are just a matter of circumstance and people who are not connected to it in any way and are simply going about their business can find themselves injured in a car accident. If the person survives, the immediate concern is getting well. After that, there can be numerous issues that can arise. A legal filing is often necessary to recover compensation for all that was lost.
