How to document the aftermath of a car accident

People in Pennsylvania who are in car wrecks should remain calm and try to document the situation. The first step is to determine whether anyone is injured and needs emergency assistance. Once medical help has arrived or if it is not needed, the person should begin taking photographs of the scene.

How to protect one's self from a drunk driver

Pennsylvania motorists may come across others on the road who are acting erratically. The reason for this behavior may be that they are driving under the influence, and there are some basic tips for avoiding a crash with a drunk driver. The first tip is awareness. Signs of erratic driving include turning wide or abruptly, drifting out of lanes, slowly reacting to traffic signals and driving too slowly. Drunk drivers often have their face close to the windshield.

Large autos may increase the risk of fatal pedestrian accidents

All of us already know that motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians are very dangerous. In 2016, 169 Pennsylvania residents died in motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians. With a state population of nearly 13 million, this means that out of every 100,000 residents, 1.32 of them lost their lives in traffic accidents.

Human error a likely reason for car accidents

It is important for many different reasons to determine why a car accident happened. Police in Pennsylvania need to know who caused it to determine if anyone should be ticketed. Insurance companies need to know if they are liable for paying out a claim in an accident's aftermath. In many cases, human error is to blame for a collision taking place, but there are many different types of mistakes a person can make.

Speed linked to 26 percent of road deaths

A report released recently by the Governors Highway Safety Association links almost one in three road deaths in Pennsylvania and around the country with excessive speed. The nonprofit group's "Speeding Away From Zero" study says that one of the biggest challenges facing lawmakers tackling the problem is that exceeding posted speed limits is seen as culturally acceptable by a large part of the motoring public.

Maximizing your compensation after a personal injury

Regardless of how it occurred, a personal injury can set you back in many areas of your life. It can seriously compromise your physical well-being, your ability to continue working and your finances. If the careless or negligent acts of another party caused your injury, you may suffer emotionally as well.
