Keeping a healthy form of travel from taking a dangerous turn

A motor vehicle accident can occur in the blink of an eye, and being prepared to handle the fallout of the crash can be a challenging feat. While, in some cases, your crash might involve little more than minor damage to your vehicle, what happens if a car hits you while you are out walking on Pennsylvania roads?

Lyme disease is often misdiagnosed

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost 300,000 Americans, including those living in Pennsylvania, contract Lyme disease each year. However, the tick-borne disease is notoriously hard to detect, meaning that many people can have it without knowing it.

Responsibilities that party hosts have during Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day is the final major holiday of summer and the perfect time for Pennsylvania residents to invite their friends and family over for a backyard barbecue. Unfortunately, it is also an infamous holiday often associated with several different types of injuries caused by people who take their celebrations too far.

Drowsy driving, and the ways to combat it

Most Pennsylvanians will naturally feel drowsy following an extended period of wakefulness or after taking certain prescription or over-the-counter drugs. The important thing is to avoid getting behind the wheel during these times. Prescription sleep aids, for example, require one to sleep seven to eight hours before heading out. Unfortunately, many people ignore these directions and disregard the signs of drowsiness.

CVSA: Brake Safety Week takes place in September 2019

Every year, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance holds an inspection spree for brake safety alone. It is called Brake Safety Week, and it will take place in 2019 from September 15 to 21. Truckers and other commercial vehicle drivers in Pennsylvania and across the U.S. will want to prepare for this by ensuring that their brakes are up to federal standards. In fact, truckers have a duty to regularly maintain their truck components.

Medical malpractice cases involving a misdiagnosis

A study conducted by researchers from the Mayo Clinic reveals that about 12 million people in Pennsylvania and around the country are misdiagnosed by their primary care physicians each year. Misdiagnosed patients do not receive the care they need and may suffer additional harm caused by the side effects of unnecessary treatment. However, proving that a doctor acted negligently can be challenging for misdiagnosed patients who choose to pursue legal remedies.
