Not all medical malpractice allegations are viable claims

Many residents of Pennsylvania may believe that a medical malpractice lawsuit may be filed after any negative medical result. However, no guarantees of success or positive medical results exist, as human error will always remain a possibility. Not all errors indicate medical malpractice. However, when actions of medical providers lead to personal injury or death of a patient, medical malpractice lawsuits may follow.

Two killed and two injured following truck accident


When driving in Pennsylvania, it is common to see large trucks on the roadway. These massive vehicles are necessary to transport large shipments from one destination to another. In most cases, these trucks travel long distances, which means that drivers are behind the wheel for long hours. Driver fatigue is common for truck drivers and can cause serious risks and hazards for other drivers on the road. Even when the impact is not huge, a truck accident can result in serious injuries and even fatalities.

Whether they are traveling a short or long distance, most Pennsylvania residents will encounter an accident site sooner or later. Depending on the cause, types of vehicles and number of vehicles, the accident could be small or massive. A truck accident will often cause a serious accident and may create a dangerous scene for other drivers that will cause the road to be shut down until it is properly cleaned up. Furthermore, they could cause serious injuries or even death, so it is important that emergency crews are able to tend to the victims.

Pennsylvania driver dead after head-on collision with truck

Incidents on the roadway are well known to residents in Pennsylvania, but fatal accidents are always hard to deal with. Truck accidents tend to not only be fatal but are also very destructive. These massive vehicles are able to crush other automobiles they collide with, create severe damage on the roadway, cause serious injuries and even cause death. Although truck drivers are trained specifically to cover long distances safely by close regulation of their driving hours and conditions, they can be involved in serious crashes not necessarily the fault of the truck driver.

Motorcycle crash with vehicle injures three

When the weather is nice, the residents of Pennsylvania enjoy putting the windows down in their cars or enjoy a ride on their motorcycle. Although it can be an enjoyable experience, driving or riding on a motorcycle as a passenger, these small vehicles can be very dangerous. When a biker is in a crash, the chances of suffering an injury are much greater. Motorcycle accidents are more likely to result in serious injuries or fatalities than car accidents. Although riders often take the precaution and wear helmets, these action do not always prevent injuries or fatalities.

When a car collides with a motorcycle, the motorcyclist is likely to sustain injuries from the crash. This is because motorcyclists and their passengers are often more vulnerable to injury than those operating or riding in a motor vehicle. When motorcycle accidents occur, the victims often suffer injuries that require ongoing care to facilitate full recoveries. It is important for victims of these types of accidents to understand their legal rights when it comes to trying to win compensation for medical bills and other losses.

Cars are not the only vehicles on the road. Motorcycles, bicyclists, joggers, farm equipment and other types of vehicles are also on our nation's roadways. Drivers should remain alert and use caution when approaching these types of vehicles, because unlike a car, the drivers of these vehicles are mostly unprotected. Distracted driving or drunk driving around these vehicles can result in personal injury, or even death.

Drivers must take care when turning onto major highways to ensure that there is plenty of room between cars before pulling into traffic. Pulling out without proper clearance can result in auto accidents that may cause severe injuries and even the deaths of passengers or other drivers on the road. Those involved in an accident on any roadway should seek to understand their rights and responsibilities under the law.
