Veterans' Social Security disability claims to be expedited


Our country's veterans have put their lives on the line for the betterment of America and the world. When they come home, they expect and deserve to be treated with dignity. Yet, veterans have recently seen poor treatment as VA backlogs keep them from the benefits they have earned.

Semi-truck in head-on collision, leaving two dead in Pennsylvania


There are many roads in Pennsylvania that lend themselves to danger. Sharp curves, steep inclines and narrow lanes may seem like they are more dangerous, but drivers should take extra care in these areas to ensure not only their safety, but the well-being of others as well. When motorists negligently navigate these roads, a deadly car accident can occur.

Some talk of expanding Social Security benefits


Pennsylvanians are often hard working people that will do everything they can to support themselves. For years, people may go to work, collect a wage and pay their taxes. Part of these taxes go to support the Social Security system. Social Security is, therefore, supposed to be available to these people if the unthinkable should happen and help to support them in their old age. More often than many people realize, people are involved in difficult accidents that make it impossible for them to work.

Motorcycle accident kills Pennsylvania man


As the weather warms, many Pennsylvanians will take to the roadways on their motorcycles. While this can be a fun, relaxing way to spend some free time or an enjoyable way to get to school or work, other motorists can put motorcyclists in danger. When a distracted or negligent driver causes a motorcycle crash, riders can be left with catastrophic injuries or dead.

Philadelphia family recovers for father's wrongful death


Many of Pennsylvania's residents have heard of the dangers posed by asbestos. The fiber, which was commonly contained in many manufacturing products, often causes mesothelioma in those who are exposed to it. This cancer is often fatal and can leave a deceased's family reeling, struggling to figure out how to move on with life. Fortunately, in these situations, legal action can be taken in an attempt to recover economic and noneconomic losses related to the unexpected loss of a loved one.

Serious truck accident results in two fatalities


The size disparity between commercial trucks and other vehicles on the roadway is rather large. As a result, truck accidents can be especially devastating for the vehicle the truck collides with, while the truck driver may walk away unscathed. This is even more true for pedestrians. Because of this great potential for harm, truck drivers must exercise a greater degree of care than other drivers to ensure that their actions do not result in an accident that causes serious injury or even death.

Former Troopers criminal conviction may not be enough for family


Many times when a car accident causes the death of another, criminal charges are levied against the errant driver. The charges may be related to reckless homicide or driving under the influence, amongst others. While seeing an individual punished punitively through the criminal justice system may help bring a deceased's family members closure, it is not the only action that can be taken in an attempt to make themselves whole again. Instead, these surviving family members may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Hit-and-run leaves pedestrian with serious injuries


Pennsylvania's motorists should be aware of pedestrians at all times. Failing to do so could result in a tragic, injurious or even fatal accident. These victims then often have to deal with the hardships associated with recovering from such a wreck. This often includes excruciating physical pain, mental turmoil and financial uncertainty. Many times, a lawsuit is the only way for these car accident victims to obtain the compensation they need and to hold the errant drivers who hurt them accountable.

Combustible dust may pose threat to Pennsylvania workers


A significant portion of Pennsylvania's workforce operates in an environment where an explosion can happen. Since these instances can cause catastrophic injuries and death, businesses need to take the proper steps to ensure worker safety. One of the most important ways to prevent these explosions is to prevent the collection of combustible dust within the location's dust collection system.

One dead, one injured in I-70 head-on car accident


Another tragic accident has occurred on Pennsylvania's roadways, leaving one dead. The crash occurred on Interstate-70 when an eastbound vehicle was hit head-on by an oncoming vehicle that had crossed the median when it lost control. The driver of the eastbound vehicle was killed and his passenger was injured.
