Recent statistics were reported surrounding highway deaths in Pennsylvania. A spokesperson for the Pennsylvania State Police stated that the number of fatal motorcycle accidents has been increasing this past year.
One woman was killed and two more injured in a car accident that occurred last week in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. The woman was driving her vehicle and had been crossing an intersection; she had the green light. Another vehicle ran a red light and collided with the woman's vehicle on the driver's side.
Being injured on-the-job can cause a lot of physical and financial problems for the injured worker. In many instances, an injured worker may be entitled to workers' compensation in order to help cover costs of medical expenses and lost wages during the recovery period.
Getting into a car accident is not a fun experience. Injuries can prevent car accident victims from being able to move in the wake of a crash. However, in some instances, individuals who are in an accident are able to come to the aid of others.
Imagine going to the hospital for an already stressful and potentially life threatening medical issue. Now imagine that the doctor who handles your case tells you that you needed a certain procedure, without informing you of the potential risks and dangers of the procedure. Most patients trust that their doctors are making decisions in the best interest of the patient's health and would agree to the procedure.
It's almost springtime in Pennsylvania. The temperature outside is getting warmer and whatever snow is left on the ground is beginning to melt. People will start to see more animals out and birds will be chirping.
Sometimes it is difficult to determine who is at fault in the wake of a car accident. Sometimes a driver may flee the accident scene, making it more difficult for investigators and responders to understand what happened. But sometimes it is clear who caused a crash.
For the first time, a Pennsylvania research study looked at whether tests recommended to patients are actually needed. Specifically, the study was administered to determine whether costly tests such as CT scans and MRIs are beneficial to the patient.
A fatal car accident occurred last Thursday afternoon in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. One man was killed and another injured in the multi-vehicle crash. Police are still determining what happened and were working with a reconstruction team last week.
