Injury-causing auto accident caught on video in Pennsylvania

At one point or another, many drivers may have been concerned over the seemingly reckless actions of other drivers. They may witness vehicles swerving or traveling at high rates of speed and be concerned that an auto accident may take place. In many cases, a crash does take place, and the reckless driving of an individual could potentially be considered a contributing factor.

A serious accident in Pennsylvania was recently caught on camera by two individuals in a work truck. It was reported that the SUV in front of the truck had been traveling erratically, which caused the passenger in the truck to start recording. The video shows the SUV swerving to the outside edges of the lane as well as crossing over into the opposite lanes of traffic, causing other drivers to move over in order to avoid the vehicle.

Pennsylvania parents may be concerned over brain injury risks

Having a child born healthy is often the hope of many Pennsylvania parents-to-be. They may take whatever precautions they can in order to do their part in working toward maintaining the health of their child. Though parents may make extra efforts when it comes to their developing child, they cannot control every aspect of the pregnancy and birth. If a doctor error is made, a child could potentially suffer a brain injury.

A situation in another state may be of interest as it involves a similar situation. It was reported that a case was filed against a hospital where a now 5-year-old boy had been delivered. The report stated that the young child has cerebral palsy, which documents claimed was the result of mistakes on the part of the hospital and staff attending to the birth.

Pennsylvania families may consider wrongful death claims

An accident involving a semi-truck has the potential to create a considerable amount of damage. Such an accident can also pose the risk of individuals suffering serious or fatal injuries. Unfortunately, similar outcomes are not uncommon when a big rig is involved in a collision with smaller vehicles, and if fatalities occur, wrongful death claims could also result.

A recent multi-car accident in Pennsylvania unfortunately had fatal results. It was reported that a semi-truck collided with the rear of a car that contained four occupants and also crashed into the rear of a pickup truck. The accident apparently occurred at an intersection where a traffic light is present. Specific information on how the crash happened was not detailed in the report.

Medical malpractice suit may interest Pennsylvania residents

When a Pennsylvania resident is ill, they may question whether they should take part in any traveling. In some cases, individuals may consult with their doctors in order to have their input and advice on the situation. Professional physicians are often able to inform a patient whether it would be safe to travel depending on their condition. If a doctor does deem it acceptable for an individual to travel and that person's condition declines, a medical malpractice suit could potentially result.

The widow of Oscar-winning composer Marvin Hamlisch is currently in the process of filing such a claim after her husband's death. The composer had been in need of a kidney transplant, which his doctor had apparently failed to previously diagnose. It was reported that Hamlisch's doctor had stated that it was fine for the composer to travel, though Hamlisch did apparently display symptoms of potential illness.

Pennsylvania auto accident leads to woman's death

When traveling on the Interstate, drivers must be aware of not only their actions but the actions of the drivers around them. There are many hazards that could arise while on the roadway, including another vehicle in a driver's blind spot or another car suddenly changing lanes. In such cases, a driver may have to react quickly in order to avoid an auto accident. Unfortunately, not all individuals are able to escape such an event.

An accident on a stretch of Interstate in Pennsylvania recently led to one driver's death. The situation took place when the driver was traveling south and another vehicle changed lanes suddenly. The driver of this second vehicle moved in front of the first driver and then pressed the brakes. This action apparently led to the driver of the second vehicle hitting the guardrail along the road, which resulted in her vehicle flipping multiple times.

Occupants killed, seriously injured in Pennsylvania auto accident

Going to party with friends can often be the highlight of someone's week. Unfortunately, that highlight can turn into a nightmare if an auto accident occurs. An individual who was having an enjoyable time only a short while earlier could easily become seriously or even fatally injured in a crash if a driver suddenly loses control of the vehicle.

A similar situation recently took place in Pennsylvania that regrettably proved fatal. It was reported that there were four individuals in an SUV when the driver apparently lost control. The vehicle left the roadway, overturned multiple times and crashed into a home that was reportedly abandoned. It was noted that the individuals had attended a party earlier in the evening and had been on their way home.

Pennsylvania auto accident results in multiple injuries

At times, being a good driver may mean attempting to anticipate the actions of other drivers on the roadways. By paying attention to other vehicles and the possible actions of drivers, individuals may be able to avoid a car accident. Unfortunately, not all actions and factors can be predicted, and if a driver unexpectedly turns or a vehicle is traveling at a higher rate of speed than initially believed, an auto accident could take place.

A recent accident in Pennsylvania involved a car and a pickup truck, and individuals in both vehicles were injured. It was reported that the driver of the car was attempting to make a left turn when her vehicle was hit by an approaching pickup truck. Additional details on the accident were not disclosed, and it is uncertain whether speed or other factors may have contributed to the collision.

Pennsylvania residents may wonder about medical malpractice cases

Individuals who have been left injured or ill due to a medical error may feel that they should be awarded compensation for the mistake. As a result, parties may file medical malpractice claims in order to seek that restitution. Because many states have caps on what a jury can award for such a claim, some parties may not receive as much compensation as they may have hoped. In other cases, simply filing a claim may be difficult in itself.

Pennsylvania does not have medical malpractice caps, but individuals who wish to file a suit may find themselves facing difficulties. It was reported that parties who file claims may have certain aspects of their cases criticized, such as where they chose to have their medical procedure done. These procedures were reportedly put into effect in hopes of deterring the number of claims filed.

Failure to diagnose an illness may mean Pennsylvania legal action

It is not uncommon for Pennsylvania residents to notice signs and symptoms that could potentially lead to them becoming ill. As a result, you may visit your doctor in order to find out what could be causing the symptoms you are experiencing. Unfortunately, not all cases are diagnosed correctly, and the failure to diagnose an illness could potentially lead to further harm. In such a situation, you may wish to consider your legal options.

In some cases, a serious illness may be able to be treated if it is caught early enough. If a doctor does not adequately assess your situation, and an illness is left untreated, your doctor could potentially be held liable. As a result, you may wish to consider filing a claim that could help you seek compensation for medical bills and pain and suffer that may have resulted from your undiagnosed illness.

Young girl seriously injured after Pennsylvania auto accident

A hit-and-run accident is a situation that too many individuals find themselves the victims of. In such cases, a driver has left the scene of an incident that could potentially have resulted in serious injuries and in someone needing immediate medical attention. If such an auto accident involves a young pedestrian, parents and other loved ones may feel as if they are in nightmare and hope that the authorities can locate the driver involved.

A similar situation recently took place in Pennsylvania when a child was struck by a vehicle. It was reported that a 7-year-old girl was apparently attempting to cross a street when she was hit by an SUV. The driver of the SUV did not remain on the scene, but a witness followed the vehicle and recorded the tag number, which the witness then gave to the authorities.
