Car and garbage truck collide in Delaware COunty

Pennsylvania residents know the cars and vehicles that are necessary to a well-run city, like mail trucks, delivery trucks and garbage trucks. Many of these vehicles are large in size.

In addition, these trucks have large blind spots, which could cause nearby vehicles to go unnoticed. This could lead to a truck accident resulting in serious injuries and severe damages.

Blue-collar jobs often require much manual labor. In addition to the physical exertion they require, they also include some dangers and risks in the work environment. Whether it is the tools that workers use or the physical demand of the job, safety measures should be implemented in order to reduce the chances of an accident. On-the-job injuries could occur if the employer does not take the steps necessary to train employees and provide them with safety equipment. If they fail to uphold this duty of care, a serious or fatal work accident could occur.

Early morning commutes tend to be hectic and busy. Heavy traffic can cause some drivers panic about being late. This is especially true if commuters encounter frequent stops at traffic signs and signals in addition to the stop and go traffic they are sitting in. In these situations, it is important for drivers to be aware of their surroundings and the other vehicles around them. If a driver is distracted because they are texting or they are negligent because they are following a vehicle too closely or they are speeding, a serious accident could result.
