Pennsylvania residents might find themselves alarmed as they continue to see news stories where school buses have been involved in crashes. Several have occurred in the state already this year, and the fear that buses continue to be involved in car accidents have many parents concerned. Many families rely on buses to get children to and from school each day, and each moment a bus is on the road is a moment that children are potentially in danger. The latest crash resulted in fatality.
During day-to-day activities, most people do not give safety a second thought. There is always the risk of a car accident, slip-and-fall or work injury. However, one freak accident can send a person's life spiraling out of control. While trying to recover from unexpected injuries, feeling helpless is quite normal.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation recently had to close a portion of Route 322 because two crashes occurred on the same stretch within hours of each other. The car accidents appear to be unrelated, but at least one resulted in fatality. Police continue to investigate both crashes, and details have emerged about the first of the crashes, which resulted in death and injuries suffered.
Pennsylvania has many large cities, but is far from what might be considered urban. Home to many small towns, the state has one of the largest rural populations in the nation. Small towns may sound idyllic, but are often subject to the same troubles as big cities, and a constant concern is car accidents.
A pet can be just as important to a family as its human relatives, and many Pennsylvania pet owners go to great lengths to make sure that their furry friends receive the best care. Much like their counterparts in the human healthcare field, veterinarians are held to certain standards, and violations can lead to medical malpractice accusations. A negligent veterinarian can cause injury or death to a beloved pet, and that vet may be held responsible for faulty procedures.
Slip and fall accidents are one of the most common work injuries in the United States. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), there were nearly 600 deaths and over 47,000 serious injuries from falls in the workplace in 2013.
