Proving negligence is key in a successful personal injury claim

Those injured through negligence often feel that they have lost control over their lives. Even when the injury seemed to occur accidentally, many Pennsylvania residents continue to feel victimized while also dealing with the pain and physical harm they suffered. Few injuries occur without a cause, which means that if you look deep enough, it is possible to uncover the negligent party in injury cases.

Factors that make it difficult for truckers to avoid accidents

Sometimes, truck accident victims may feel as if the driver of the big rig that caused their injuries did nothing to avoid the collision. In some cases, victims may even feel that the trucker meant to crash into their vehicle. However, truck drivers don't want to have an accident or hurt a motorist.

Daydreaming behind the wheel is a danger

Many Bucks County motorists have heard a great deal about the dangers of texting while driving. Using a phone while behind the wheel is undoubtedly a bad idea, and these technological distractions have been linked to a number of serious accidents. However, while a good amount of legislative attention, research and technological development has gone into reducing the likelihood of distracted driving due to mobile devices, other forms of distraction remain a significant threat. One of the most common causes of serious car accidents is driving while daydreaming, inattentive or simply lost in thought.

Avoiding a messy high-asset divorce

Not too many divorcing couples in Pennsylvania have the kind of assets that Jeff Bezos and his soon-to-be-ex-wife have. However, divorces involving significant wealth can still present certain challenges not common with more traditional splits. In early 2019, the Amazon founder and his spouse jointly announced plans to end their 25-year marriage. High-profile couples like this may be able to avoid a message divorce by being proactive during the process.

Product liability cases: A look at how defendants may respond

As you know, there are two sides to every story that comes before a court of law. Giving each side a voice is one of the most important cornerstones of the judicial system in Pennsylvania. Those harmed by a dangerous or defective product may feel it is unfair to allow manufacturers to defend themselves, but the right to do so is what helps to make our nation a wonderful place to live.

Pennsylvania resident dead after motor vehicle accident

When a new year begins, everyone is filled with a sense of joy and excitement about the coming 12 months. No one expects a tragedy to strike and rob a family of a beloved member of the clan. Unfortunately, not all new years begin they way people expect. Any number of tragedies can mar what is otherwise a happy time, including fatal motor vehicle accidents.

Keeping dads involved in a child's life after a divorce

Fathers in Pennsylvania can take comfort in knowing that courts today typically give equal weight to the roles of both parents in a child's life when making custody decisions. Even so, it's still common for children to end up living with the mother if parents aren't able to make co-parenting or joint custody work. However, there are some steps that fathers looking to stay involved in their child's life may be able to take to ensure that their rights are upheld during and after a divorce.

A personal injury often comes with long-lasting consequences

Suffering a serious personal injury typically has a devastating effect on the injured party, and it can impact the victim's entire family as well. Along with the pain and trauma associated with a serious injury, victims and family members suffer a range of consequences. We wanted to take a moment to talk about these issues to help prepare you should you or someone in your family suffer an accidental injury due to someone else's negligence.

Finding the best way to divide a co-owned home

When a couple is contemplating divorce in Pennsylvania, they will likely begin to think about the assets they own and strive to determine the best way to divide these assets. With some things, such as savings accounts, it's pretty cut and dry because they can be divided equally. Other things, like a co-owned house, cannot quickly be divided in two. The option exists to sell the home and then divide the profits. However, personal attachments to the home, wanting to raise a family in the home, and one's inability to pay for the home on a single income could impact that decision.
