Head and brain injuries can happen with a slip-and-fall accident

When television shows and movies show a slip-and-fall accident, it is usually a humorous event. Everybody in the audience gets a laugh, and the character walks away with nothing but a bruised ego. In the real world, these kinds of accidents often result in serious injuries.

Fourth of July accidents

Holidays entail celebrations and festivities, but they also cause an increase in the number of accidents, some of which may be fatal. Pennsylvania residents may be surprised to learn that the Fourth of July has such a negative effect on public health that the holiday is considered to be the deadliest in the U.S.A.

Drugged driving the subject of new GHSA study

Drivers in Pennsylvania should know that although alcohol-related car accidents have slightly declined over the past decade, there has been an increase in drug-related crashes. The Governors Highway Safety Association conducted a study recently that analyzed fatal car crash data from 2016 and compared it to the data of 2006. It found that the percentage of fatally injured drivers with drugs in their system rose from 28 to 44 percent.

New tech provides solutions to distracted driving

Many safety advocates in Pennsylvania want to reverse the dangerous trend of distracted driving. Since the main factor in this trend is smartphone use, it may sound ironic to say that new technology will be the solution. However, the introduction of two new devices may be convincing enough as proof. While one product is currently in its pilot phase, the other is already on the market.

Autonomous car features may not be completely trustworthy

Most Pennsylvania motorists understand the importance of paying attention while in a vehicle, even if it has self-driving technology. Nevertheless, a 26-year-old woman was recently involved in a crash after engaging the Autopilot feature on her Tesla. The woman had her hands off of the steering wheel for 80 seconds before crashing into a firetruck while going 60 miles per hour. The woman told police that she had been looking at her phone when the collision occurred.
