Pedestrian injuries more common in certain areas of Pittsburgh


Motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians are and will continue to be a problem in Pittsburgh, throughout Pennsylvania and across the nation. There are many potential reasons for this, including speeding, driver negligence, drunk driving, distracted driving and much more. What is often understated when considering the cause of these accidents is the location at which the accidents occur.

Even drivers in Pittsburgh who exhibit extra caution to avoid being in a car accident will not know what to do when there is a vehicle heading for them in the opposite direction. Because a head-on crash is so hard to avoid and can inflict so much damage, those who are involved in this type of accident will frequently have severe injuries. In turn, this will result in significant medical bills, lost wages and other issues that can be difficult for the injured victim. When there is a head-on crash, it is critical to know how to seek compensation in a legal filing.

How can you handle situations when parents did not have a will?


The loss of a parent can be a difficult situation to get beyond in an emotional way. While time will likely heal that pain, Pennsylvania residents can face other issues following the death of a parent. One problem that frequently arises is if the parents failed to take the necessary estate planning steps to handle their affairs and did not create a will or other device. Knowing what to do after this has become evident is important to settle their affairs and to pass their assets along to those who have a right to them.

Drugged driving surpassing drunk driving as a road danger


People getting behind the wheel while under the influence of an intoxicating substance is often the cause of a motor vehicle accident in Pennsylvania and across the nation. While alcohol is frequently seen as the main cause of these crashes, the growing trend of people misusing prescription drugs as well as the legalization of marijuana has made it increasingly common that fatal accidents will be due to a driver under the influence of drugs. The fatalities can be to the driver who was under the influence and they can also be to others who were driving another vehicle, were bicyclists or pedestrians.
