Study shows decline in traffic deaths, increase in two 2 groups


There can be a lot of joy involved in getting out on the open road with a vehicle. It is an experience that many citizens of Pennsylvania take pleasure in and also rely on for more practical purposes. However, that joy can unfortunately sometimes turn to tragedy when accidents occur. A new report from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) shows promising developments in traffic deaths overall. However, that silver lining is marred by a troubling pair of statistics.

What is the role of the FMCSA in preventing truck accidents?


Compared to car accidents in Pennsylvania, truck accidents are governed by a different set of rules and regulations in part because there are federal trucking guidelines that truck drivers must follow. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is the government agency that is responsible for making the policies and procedures that all commercial truck drivers must adhere to while operating a commercial vehicle.

If the drunk driver dies, who is responsible for medical bills?


First and foremost, being involved in any type of vehicular-related accident can be devastating. In your driving lifetime, you will most likely be involved in a car accident, but most of us are lucky and are merely involved in fender-benders, which are low-level traffic accidents in which no one is hurt. However, unfortunately, many people have to bear witness to more serious types of car crashes, especially where drunk drivers are at fault. Drunk driving accidents are one of the most heinous types of accidents, because they have the potential to leave the victims seriously injured or dead. Personal injury resulting from an accident of this type is a given.

A car accident can be really scary for the people involved. They may be emotionally rattled from the experience, causing fear and anxiety. They may also be suffering from physical injuries. These may cause pain and keep people away from the things they enjoy. A serious injury may threaten a person's life or keep a person away from the individual's job.
