NHTSA estimates a 1% decline in traffic fatalities in 2018

Pennsylvania drivers should know that the number of motor vehicle crash fatalities has been decreasing since 2016. In 2017, a total of 37,133 died in these crashes, which represented a 2% decrease from the previous year. Now, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates in a preliminary report that there were 36,750 such fatalities in 2018, a decrease of about 1%.

The elements of a medical malpractice lawsuit

When Pennsylvania residents take legal action against negligent hospitals or doctors that have caused them harm, the success of their medical malpractice lawsuits hinge on their ability to establish two key elements. The first is proving that the doctors who treated them or the medical facilities where they were treated acted in ways that did not meet generally accepted industry standards. Patients then have to show that their injury, loss or damage was caused directly by this substandard care.
