How much does a surviving spouse get if there is no will?

Pennsylvania residents will often be encouraged to prepare for the future by taking part in comprehensive estate planning. This is to make certain their loved ones are cared for, there is adequate asset protection and there are no problems after their death. However, some will still avoid the issue. There are many reasons for this. Perhaps it is an unwillingness to acknowledge the inevitable end of life. Or, they might be under the impression that they do not have significant assets to make an estate plan with a will or trusts.

Eight people suffer injuries after bus-truck accident

People in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas might choose to take public transportation to avoid the inherent problems and concerns with driving. That can include the cost of gas, the need to find parking, the inevitable traffic and more. When taking public transport, however, it is important to remember there can be auto accidents just as easily as when commuters are in their own vehicles. They can also suffer injuries in these crashes. A common concern is encountering the seemingly endless number of delivery trucks on the road, especially during the holiday season. When there is an accident of this kind, it is important that those who were injured think about a potential legal filing.

Can you receive a hardship discharge under Chapter 13?

When Pennsylvania residents consider filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, there are several reasons why this can be preferable to a liquidation under Chapter 7, not the least of which is the oft-mentioned and accurate statement that a person can "keep your home" and "keep your motor vehicle." However, even after the plan has been approved and a person is making the payments as required, problems might arise that prevent the debtor from completing the requirements detailed in the plan. There are still options available, albeit in tightly controlled situations.

Pedestrian suffers critical injuries when hit by car on sidewalk

Pedestrians in Pittsburgh will know that they need to be vigilant. Given the number of ways in which drivers are distracted nowadays, the simple act of crossing the street can be a dangerous act, even if pedestrians are adhering to all the basic safety rules. However, what they will not expect is to be hit by a car when they are on the sidewalk. This can happen suddenly and the injuries can lead to significant medical bills and lost wages, among other financial impacts. A lawsuit is often the only strategy to receive adequate compensation for what they have lost.
