What forms of negligence are most common re car accidents?

Pennsylvania residents may be interested to know that the greater part of claims for personal injuries in the United States arise from automobile accidents. Whenever personal injury or wrongful death claims are filed in court, the plaintiff has to provide evidence that the defendant's negligence contributed to the accident and injuries or fatalities that resulted. Proving negligence and determining who to name as defendants in claims following car accidents may prove challenging. However, the assistance of a personal injury attorney who deals with such matters on a regular basis may lead to recovery of damages.

Jury awards $1.2 million in medical malpractice lawsuit

Most Pennsylvania residents likely tend to have full trust in their physicians to be able to diagnose an ailment or medical condition. Furthermore, doctors are expected to explain the diagnosis and the treatment suggested in a way that the patient would understand. However, this is not always the case, and a jury recently found a doctor negligent and awarded $1.2 million to a woman in another state who filed a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Motorcycle accidents may have life-altering consequences

Regardless of how much protective gear a Pennsylvania motorcyclist wears, the consequences of a collision between an automobile and motorcycle are usually devastating. While motorcycle accidents are sometimes associated with negligent and reckless motorcycle riders, it is often the driver of an automobile or other enclosed motor vehicle that was the negligent party. It is not uncommon for motorcyclists who are fortunate enough to survive such an accident to suffer catastrophic injuries that may require many adaptations to the way they live their lives.
