The types of distraction that could be compromising your safety

Distracted driving is a problem that affects the safety and well-being of every Pennsylvania driver, yet it is a more complex issue than most people think. While distraction is commonly associated with texting, the reality is that there are many more things besides a phone that can divert a driver's attention.

Preventing motor vehicle accidents caused by teen drivers

Pennsylvania readers likely know that teen drivers are inexperienced, immature and often unable to effectively handle the sudden hazards that can present themselves to drivers. Considering this, parents should be overly concerned with how their kids drive, teaching them important safety measures and educating them on how to prevent motor vehicle accidents. This is important as statistics indicate that the ages of 16 and 17 are the most dangerous because of driving.

Know your rights after a distracted driving car accident

There are many threats to driver safety in Pennsylvania, and distracted driving is one of the most serious of these concerns. With technology constantly changing, even improvements made in the name of safety, such as hands-free capabilities, can be a distraction and danger. Those harmed in a distracted driving car accident should take steps to know their rights, including the right to financial compensation. 

Preventing motor vehicle accidents caused by distraction

Pennsylvania readers should be well aware of the dangers posed by distracted driving. Despite widespread awareness of the dangers of this behavior, it continues to be a problem, placing many motorists at risk for accidents and serious injuries. In order to reduce the number of motor vehicle accidents related to distraction, namely cellphone use and texting, April has been designated as Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

Faulty airbags increase risk of accident injuries and death

Pennsylvania readers may be aware of the scandal that has plagued the automaker Honda and a company called Takata, which makes airbags for several major automobile manufacturers. The scandal is over faulty airbags. Honda initiated a recall ultimately affecting 8.5 million vehicles because of a defect with the airbags that could lead to an increased risk of accident injuries, even death. At this point, at least one fatality and several injuries have been linked to the airbag defect.

Does distraction increase the risk of motor vehicle accidents?

As many Pennsylvania readers know, distracted driving continues to be one of the most dangerous threats to drivers in the state and across the country. While people know that it is an issue, and despite the statistics that seem to indicate a startling number of drivers operate a vehicle while distracted, most deny that they are part of the overall problem. Distracted driving of all kinds is dangerous and leads to a significantly higher risk of motor vehicle accidents

Motor vehicle accidents and whiplash: a common problem

Pennsylvania readers know that car accidents can cause serious physical harm, but many injuries that are seemingly minor are often overlooked. Whiplash is one of the most common types of injuries suffered in motor vehicle accidents. Although it is a rather common type of injury, victims who are left dealing with whiplash may not know what to expect during recovery. 

When are accident injuries grounds for a personal injury claim?

Car accidents can cause a myriad of injuries, ranging from minor cuts and bruises to major trauma that leaves Pennsylvania victims with lifelong disabilities. While accident injuries are not uncommon, it can be difficult to know what constitutes valid grounds for a personal injury claim. Some injuries, specifically those to the back, may linger and indicate a more serious problem over time.

Car accident victims: What you need to know about whiplash

If you were diagnosed with whiplash after a car accident, you know how hard it can be to move forward while dealing with lingering pain and medical bills. While whiplash is a relatively common car accident injury, the effects of this type of medical problem should not be underestimated. After an accident, it is important to understand whether your injury is a valid ground for a personal injury claim in Pennsylvania.

Distraction leading cause of motor vehicle accidents for teens

Distracted driving is a major problem for young Pennsylvania drivers. Teen drivers are at a particularly high risk of being involved in fatal motor vehicle accidents because of distractions behind the wheel.
