Tree falls on car, killing two children

We often speak of "car accidents" when we mean a crash or collision involving one or more vehicles. In reality, most of those so-called accidents are no accidents, at least in the sense that they are not foreseeable. If an individual consumes a dozen alcoholic drinks in a short period of time resulting in a high blood alcohol content measurement and then attempts to drive, no one is surprised then the crash into another vehicle because of their intoxication.

Municipal radar--safer roads or more speed traps?

Because highways are so integral to how we live in the U.S., issues affecting all aspects of highway transportation are political.

Disability benefits a long time coming

We always warn clients that applying for Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits can be a time consuming and lengthy process. Disability programs, like SSDI and from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), have complex and detailed applications, because they provide long-term, permanent disability benefits for recipient, and are subject to strict controls to prevent fraud.

Drunk driver could serve up to 40 years for Chambersburg crash

Driving a motor vehicle gives a person a great deal of freedom. As long as you can buy gas, you can drive anywhere you want at any time. With that freedom, however, comes a substantial responsibility. When operating a car or truck, you have a duty to all the other motorists on the highway. That duty includes not driving drunk.

In a serious car accident, do you know how much is enough?

When a truck or car accident happens, you may hope for the best. If the other driver was clearly responsible, you may think that you can rely on their insurance company to offer you a fair settlement that fully compensates you for the damage and harm you have suffered. Whether the car accident occurs right here in Chambersburg, somewhere else in Pennsylvania or in some other state, you may not want to trust in the charity of the other driver's insurance company.
