Poor driving in bad weather can result in serious injuries

Fall has arrived in Pennsylvania and with it cooler temperatures. Though children have yet to don their costumes and head out for trick-or-treating on Halloween, some residents may be looking ahead to more serious and sinister weather on the horizon. Snow, ice, sleet, and rain are all dangers that Pennsylvanians have to put up with when the winter months come at the end of the year.

The earlier sunset can affect everything from your mood to your after-work activities, but did you know it affects your safety on the road?

Outdoor slip-and-fall accident may indicate premises liability

Pennsylvania residents are no strangers to the variable weather that the state can throw at them.

When wet, cold, and slippery conditions develop, outdoor surfaces like stairs, sidewalks, and parking lots can become treacherous for pedestrians to cross.
