Ensure Your Rights Are Protected In A Cycling Accident

With the change of seasons and the desire to get out of the house, many will begin to enjoy riding their bicycles and motorcycles. For others, approximately 870,000 individuals in the United States, cycling is the primary transportation method to work. Unfortunately, many cycling accidents will result because of the negligence of other motorists, a poorly maintained roadway, an uncontrolled pet, or a pedestrian. According to the National Highway Transportation Association, approximately 55,000 cyclists are injured in the United States each year in reported accidents. In fact, from 2013-2018, the Federal Highway Association reported approximately 4,000 cycling deaths. Cyclists who suffer severe injuries require proper legal representation to ensure proper compensation. The Goldman Law Office has extensive experience aggressively pursuing the rights of cyclists. Contact us today and we would be happy to assist you.

Protecting Yourself and Your Rights as a Pedestrian

During this time of social distancing and stay at home orders, we find ourselves with limited options to get out of the house. Walking or running outdoors is a great way to get exercise and fresh air, but make sure you are doing so sensibly and following the rules of the road. When you are out for a run or walking your dog, remember to cross the road safely at an intersection or designated crosswalk and always walk facing oncoming traffic.

If you or a loved one has been struck by a car or otherwise injured as a pedestrian, we are here to help. Contact us today. Our attorneys and staff stand ready to assist.

Truck accident may have cost a Pennsylvania driver his life

America's economy wouldn't be moving very fast if we didn't move goods by trucks. In some parts of Pennsylvania and other states, trucks are the only reliable way of getting the things people need. But the sheer weight and speed of a tractor-trailer can do some serious damage if the driver lets it get out of control.

A look at Pennsylvania's no-fault auto accident insurance option

Most people purchase insurance covering motor vehicle accidents without truly understanding what they are buying. Hopefully, you never have to file an accident insurance claim, but if you do, it is vital to understand how your policy will protect you. Without a good grasp of the insurance laws in Pennsylvania, there exists a chance that you could fail to receive the compensation you are due.

Do not ride with an unsafe driver

It's frightening being in the car with an unsafe driver, but it's something most people experience at one time or another. Maybe it's a family member who just got their license and doesn't take the risk seriously enough. Maybe it's a friend who says they're safe to drive but who clearly had a bit too much to drink.

Drinking coffee, driving with your knees and other dangers

Multitasking, or attempting to do so, causes accidents all the time in the United States. That's because multitasking is actually just distracted driving. You cannot do both things at once. When your attention leaves the road, the odds of an accident increase.

Who is legally responsible in a rideshare motor vehicle accident?

Rideshare services such as Lyft and Uber have become increasingly popular among residents of Pennsylvania. Users find these services affordable and convenient when they need to get somewhere relatively fast. Unfortunately, rideshare drivers risk involvement in motor vehicle accidents the same as everyone else does.

Summer driving is not as safe as you may think it is

When the summer months arrive, motorists take to the roads more than ever. With roadways that are free of icy patches, snow and other winter hazards, motorists believe they are safe. However, cautious driving is still a must. While the perils of summer driving are different from the hazards posed at other times of the year, they can still cause motor vehicle accidents, many of them resulting in severe harm.

Do you know how to spot a dangerous drunk driver?

Motor vehicle accidents involving a drunk driver occur far too often in the U.S. This blatant disregard for public safety can endanger anyone who drives in Pennsylvania. Assuming that other motorists will drive responsibly can leave you vulnerable to serious and life-threatening injuries. A better way to avoid alcohol-related accidents is by staying alert and watching for signs of impaired driving.

More new vehicles to offer advanced safety technology

Despite increasing awareness about methods to reduce car accidents, they continue to occur -- putting innocent people at risk of injury. In response to this problem, auto manufacturers are turning to technology as a solution. Automatic emergency braking is just one example of safety technology that can help reduce accidents.
