Motorcycle accidents are often caused by reckless vehicle drivers

Generally, motorcyclists in Pennsylvania are more vulnerable than motorists. Not only are their bikes not as visible as four-wheel vehicles, but they also do not have the protection of enclosed motor vehicles. Helmets and protective clothing, while helpful, are usually not sufficient to prevent serious injuries. Unfortunately, it's not surprising that catastrophic injuries and even fatalities often result from motorcycle accidents that involve other vehicles.

An auto accident involving farm equipment can be fatal

During the recent Rural Roads Safety Week in Pennsylvania, a call was made for motorists and farmers to share the roads in a responsible manner. In collaboration with the state's transportation, police and agriculture departments, the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau endeavors to raise awareness of the coming planting season and the associated safety risks on the roads. Increased numbers of slow-moving farm equipment will be using the roads, and the patience of motorists will be tested. An auto accident that involves heavy farm equipment can lead to severe personal injury or worse.

Mother and son files medical malpractice claim

Needing to undergo an organ transplant is naturally an extremely stressful situation for patients in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. At such times, patients should be able to trust in the knowledge and experience of the medical professionals who will be in control of the surgery and aftercare. A man in another state who was in the final stages of renal disease and suffered hypertension was scheduled for a kidney transplant in 2011. Unfortunately, the treatment he received apparently did not live up to expectations and his wife and son recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against the treating cardiologist and the medical facility.

Medication error in newborn leads to $17.8 million jury award

When a newborn baby undergoes surgery, it is naturally a traumatic experience for his or her parents. Under such circumstances, parents commonly put their trust in the experience and knowledge of the surgical team. Unfortunately, such trust is sometimes misplaced. Medical negligence can have devastating consequences. Pennsylvania readers may be aware of the outcome of a medical malpractice lawsuit after a medication error in another state.
