Drowsy driving is a factor in many truck accidents

Semi-trucks are an important part of interstate commerce in our nation, but it is not unusual for truck drivers to take risks while on the road. For example, truckers in Pennsylvania may be financially incentivized to make as many deliveries as possible as quickly as possible.

Constant availability could lead to more car accidents

Smartphones may have made personal communication easier, but they may have also had an unintended side-effect -- constant availability. It used to be the case that work was done in the workplace, and at the end of the day workers went home. A workers time was their own until the next workday. However, now that we can make phone calls, send texts, reply to emails and post on social media all through one hand-held device, many people feel they must be "on-call" when it comes to work at all hours. The personal stress this constant availability causes aside, there is a major issue that is making roadways in Pennsylvania and across the nation more dangerous -- distracted driving in the form of cellphone use.

Gathering evidence after a truck accident

Building a personal injury claim after a car accident is rarely a simple or quick process, especially when the accident involves a commercial truck. Victims who rush the process often miss out on compensation that they deserve, because they need help getting back on their feet as soon as possible.

Can you drive away from an angry driver?

Road rage is unpredictable and dangerous. When someone lashes out at you, you may suddenly fear for your own safety or even your life. There is something about driving in a car that makes some people furious, and crossing paths with them is not fun.
