When a Pennsylvania truck driver is negligent or reckless, it poses a risk for everyone else on the road. This is also the case when a truck driver is tired while behind the wheel. Truckers work long hours and spend a significant amount of time behind the wheel, which may mean they are more prone than other types of drivers to be drowsy.
It's difficult to know which motorists are causing you particular risk for injury at a given time on a Pennsylvania roadway. That's because hidden dangers often lurk unseen. The driver next to you may look perfectly fine until he or she suddenly veers over into your lane, slamming into the side of your vehicle. Sometimes, you can spot signs that suggest a certain driver may be intoxicated or otherwise distracted behind the wheel. Safely distancing yourself from suspicious drivers is usually a good idea.
One of the most popular rides in amusement parks and carnivals is the bumper cars. With little to no control over your vehicle, you spin around a track trying to crash your well-padded car into someone else's while avoiding others who are out to collide with you. While it often looks like chaos, it is a carefully controlled environment, and the low-speed encounters rarely cause injury.
A Pennsylvania car accident can change your life in an instant, but maybe not in the way that you think. Some of the most devastating consequences after an accident are not the result of a life-threatening injury but an injury that can have a detrimental impact on your ability do normal activities and enjoy a certain quality of life.
