A pedestrian accident can cause long-term physical harm

When they are young, Pennsylvania children are taught to look both ways before walking onto streets. They are given this important lesson so that they are prepared to avoid coming into the paths of moving vehicles and so that they may protect themselves from the serious harm that can result from auto-pedestrian accidents. As children grow into adults many still remember this important piece of wisdom but despite their best efforts, individuals of all ages are often made victims of collisions with motor vehicles.

Why are workers' compensation claims denied?

Workers' compensation provides injured individuals with financial support when they suffer harm due to their jobs. A worker should not experience detrimental effects to their health when they perform tasks for their employer, and as such their employer should compensate them when that harm keeps them out of work. However, getting workers' compensation requires satisfying certain requirements and from time to time Butler residents may see their applications denied.

Truck drivers are prohibited from texting while behind the wheel

A Butler driver who chooses to use a handheld device while operating their automobile can face serious penalties if they are caught in the act. However, this may a minor problem for them compared to the serious damage they can inflict on others if their texting and driving causes a vehicle accident. Like regular drivers, commercial drivers like truckers are also banned from using handheld devices while driving their rigs because the practice is unsafe.
