Two killed, one injured in fiery multi-vehicle truck accident

Pennsylvania residents are gearing up for summer and all the activities that come with the season. Whether they are taking a road trip, heading to a ball game or going to the beach, travelers on Pennsylvania's interstates are sure to encounter another ubiquitous feature of summertime: orange construction barrels. Unfortunately, construction slow-downs on the road have the propensity to lead to serious car accidents.

Unnecessary C-sections could lead to serious injuries, fatalities

Many expecting mothers in Pennsylvania want to have a vaginal delivery. However, complications during labor could make it necessary for the woman to have a cesarean section (C-section).

When a Surgical Accident Becomes Medical Malpractice

Surgical Accidents and Errors are More Common than You Might Think

When your life is quite literally in your surgeon's hands, you want to be able to trust that person. But surgical errors in the operating room are far from rare. A 2006 study by the National Institutes of Health reported on over one thousand neurosurgeries and the surgical error statistics are rather sobering.

Medical malpractice lawsuits and the res ipsa doctrine

Physicians, surgeons and other medical professionals, even if they have years of education and experience, are only human and they can make mistakes. Unfortunately, these mistakes can seriously harm patients, or even make their condition worse than it was before they sought medical care. When this happens, it is important for victims in Pennsylvania to know that under circumstances, they may be able to pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Life can change drastically after a spinal cord injury

Many people don't think about how much they rely on their spinal cord to survive.

If you suffer a spinal cord injury, there is a good chance that you will suffer life-long effects.

Can physicians be held responsible for a misdiagnosis?

No one enjoys being sick. Some minor illnesses, such as a cold, mean a day or two off work, spent in bed with a box of tissues and some cold medicine. Other illnesses though, are much more serious, necessitating a hospital stay, strong prescription medications and weeks or even months away from work. However, no matter how serious the illness, people in Pennsylvania trust that when they go to their doctor for a diagnosis, it will be correct and an appropriate treatment plan developed.

Federal trucking regulations prohibit texting and driving

Texting and driving is dangerous for any motorist in Pennsylvania, but it is especially dangerous for drivers of semi-trucks. In fact, truck drivers who engage in texting and driving are 23.2 times more likely to be involved in a car accident, or other safety-critical event. Moreover, if a truck driver is travelling at 55 miles per hour, and engages in texting and driving for even 4.6 seconds, it is the equivalent to driving a stretch of road as long as a football field with his or her eyes closed.

Despite adaptations, long-term effects of brain injury remain
