Helpful driving tips for the Thanksgiving holiday

The Thanksgiving holiday is nearly upon us. This means that the busiest travel days of the year will see more than 46 million people travelling more than 50 miles away from their homes later this week. For people in our region, driving may be treacherous with a blast of cold air and precipitation looming. Nevertheless, bad weather usually doesn't prevent people from getting to loved ones.

Why you should deal with the temptation of road rage

If you spend enough time behind the wheel, you are going to encounter someone who tries to do something stupid while in traffic. Either they cut you off by passing in front of you without signaling, or they follow so close behind you (i.e. tailgating) in order to get you move out of the fast lane. If you don’t budge, or if you honk your horn to express your displeasure, it could turn into something else.

Common questions about car accidents answered

As we have noted in a number of posts, no one expects to be in a car accident. Despite this, accidents occur around Central Pennsylvania every day. And the sudden winter-like weather does not make driving any easier. For those who have been in an accident, you may have plenty of questions about what happens next, regardless of whether you may have been at fault or not.  This post will attempt to answer some of those basic questions.

Elements that are considered in car accident cases

Proving fault is car accidents is not always easy. There can be a number of factors that can cloud the determination of liability. Nevertheless, regardless of what type of accident has occurred, there are certain elements that can help in showing who was at fault. This post will highlight them.

2012 workplace fatality statistics in Pennsylvania

What you should know about winter driving

Do you remember the polar vortex? The two most infamous words of last year’s winter are making headlines again, as a major fall storm combined with cold arctic air are combining to bring snow to our region earlier than expected. Because of this roads became treacherous and not all drivers heeded warnings to slow down and avoid black ice.

About Pennsylvania workers' compensation benefits

The Pennsylvania workers' compensation program is designed to provide financial assistance to individuals who suffer an injury while on the job or who become sick due to their work environment. However, the complexity of the claims process sometimes makes obtaining all of the available benefits a challenge for an injured or ill worker.

20 years later, persistence and perseverance has paid off

There is something to be said about persistence and perseverance. These two elements are the great equalizers over talent and genius. After all, there is an entire world of unsuccessful people who claim to be talented as well as highly intelligent people afraid to take chances. Albert Einstein once played down his genius by saying “it’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”

Fatal bicycle accidents have increased since 2010

In a prior post, we highlighted some of the dangers drivers face as fall is here. As daylight savings time ends, more people will be commuting to and from work in the dark. This creates another set of hazards for people who ride their bikes to and from work and school. These issues were highlighted in a recent report published by the Governors Highway Safety Administration (GHSA).
