How safe are trucks on Pennsylvania roadways?

Truck accidents on the Pittsburgh roadways have unfortunately become all too common. Since 2009, 14,000 people have died as a result of big-rig truck accidents. Accident rates vary between states due to differences in terrain and weather patterns, as well as irregularity of enforcement.

All-terrain vehicle accidents can cause serious injury

Accidents involving vehicles of any kind can cause serious injuries, particularly to children. Car accidents involving various types of vehicles have become a problem in Pennsylvania. In 2009, over 130,000 United States emergency room visits were attributed to all-terrain vehicles, or ATVs. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, children under the age of 16 were involved in a quarter of these visits. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that, from 2007 to 2011, Pennsylvania had 97 rider deaths on public highways, the second-highest number in the country.

Recovery from wrongful death lawsuits can help you move forward

No one wants to imagine a day when a loved one will have to go into surgery. Unfortunately, this is something most of us will experience at some point in our lives. We trust that the Pittsburgh medical professionals in charge of our loved one's procedure will take good care of them and live up to their duties as health care professionals. In most cases, that's exactly what happens. However, in a few cases, medical professionals and hospital staff behave negligently on the job, causing injury to their patients. One mistake can cost a patient his or her life. In these cases, victims and their families may be able to file a successful wrongful death suit against those responsible.
