Head-on car-motorcycle crash causes debilitating injuries, death

Motor vehicle accidents in Pittsburgh can happen with any kind of vehicle. Oftentimes, the smaller and more maneuverable the vehicle is, the more prone the driver and its passengers are to debilitating injuries and death. When the accident involves a motorcycle and a conventional vehicle, the rider will be exceedingly vulnerable to the worst kinds of injuries and fatalities. It is vital that drivers pay close attention to motorcycles when they are sharing the road with them. If there is an accident, a motorcyclist who is injured and the family left behind after a fatality must be aware of the requirements to file a lawsuit for compensation.

Brewer hopes Chapter 11 can help its financial situation

Running a business in Pittsburgh and across Pennsylvania requires a certain amount of risk. Business can ebb and flow and that can cause problems for many owners. In some cases, this can lead to overwhelming business debt and problems making the necessary payments. A debt restructuring through a Chapter 11 bankruptcy can help to maintain business operations and get back on strong financial footing.

Distracted driving remains a problem in Pennsylvania

The issue of distracted driving has become so prevalent that when there is an accident in Pennsylvania, those involved cannot help but think that it was likely due to drivers not paying attention to the road. Since this problem is growing so rapidly, people often wonder why law enforcement and legislators do not do something about it. In 2012, Pennsylvania passed a law making it a violation to text and drive. According to police, the law is not strong enough to discourage people from texting and driving. Surveys have shown that around four in five Americans confess to using their devices while behind the wheel. Although Pennsylvania has outlawed texting, people can still make calls, use directional apps and legally use the internet. The law itself has gaps preventing law enforcement from cracking down to a notable degree.

A loan modification could help you avoid foreclosure on your home

Buying a home is often the single biggest purchase and investment of your life. Many people spend years saving up for a down payment and decades building up equity. Then, something happens that leaves you struggling to pay your bills. You may miss a payment, and that's when the real trouble starts. Your mortgage company or bank could attempt to foreclose on your home if you aren't paying in full and on time.

Multiple people suffer injuries when vehicle crashes into salon

In Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas, a motor vehicle accident can happen at any time and in a seemingly endless number of circumstances. When out on the road, it is a known risk. However, people who are in an establishment are unlikely to be expecting a vehicle to crash through the wall or window and hit them. It does happen. These types of motor vehicle accident injuries can be especially dangerous because they are so unexpected and the people are inherently vulnerable. After this type of accident, those who have been injured and the families of those who were killed must know the steps to take to file a case to be compensated.

Estate planning needs regular updating to suit a person's needs

Pennsylvanians who are vigilant enough to take the necessary steps to having a sound estate plan might be under the impression that once the document is completed, they never need to look at it again. Unavoidable life changes - positive and negative - can make this a terrible mistake. When estate planning, it is wise to view the document as something that must adapt as time passes and lives change. Having an idea as to when trusts, a will or other documents that people use to handle their estates need to be adjusted is imperative.
