Pennsylvania man's recovery highlights cost, time of healing

This week, we are covering the story of a 21-year-old man from a small town in south-central Pennsylvania. The young man was in a serious car accident at the end of November and he is still recovering from his injuries. Though he was the driver in a single-vehicle accident, the injuries he suffered, the medical debt he has accrued and the time it has taken to recover are all similar to those of victims in car accidents caused by negligent drivers. While this young man likely cannot file a personal injury lawsuit, anyone who is hurt by another driver likely can.

Icy road likely culprit in fatal chain reaction crash

Three vehicles and a public works truck were involved in a chain reaction fatal car accident in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania recently, and though the authorities are not entirely sure what caused the crash, it seems that the weather may have had a role to play in the wreck. An investigation into the crash is ongoing.

With more older adults on the roads, drivers need to watch out

While the statistics show that older drivers are the safest drivers on the road, many people in Pittsburgh are likely to be concerned that the number of drivers 65 and older is on the rise. In fact, since 2003, the number of older drivers has grown by 21 percent. There were an estimated 35 million drivers 65 and older on the roads in 2012, says the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

After six-year decline, car accident crash rate increases

A recent finding by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may raise more questions than it answers. Specifically, NHTSA data indicates that motor vehicle accidents increased in 2012. The finding is especially disheartening considering that crash rates have been declining in the past six consecutive years.

Driver didn't think she would hit pedestrian while turning

When something happens while driving, many people instinctively make an excuse. When a driver hits a motorcyclist, he or she may say "I didn't see him!" When one driver turns left in front of another driver going straight, he or she may say, "I thought I could make the turn!" The excuses are normal, but that doesn't mean that they are acceptable. Drivers can give all the excuses they want, but when their negligence causes an accident, they can be held responsible.
