Philly Bus Accident

Bus accidents do not occur that frequently, but when they do happen, they can lead to massive death and destruction. Buses are the only type of passenger vehicle where occupants do not have to wear seatbelts. Without safety belts, the bodies of bus passengers do not remain in their seats when an accident occurs. Instead, they move around inside the bus, often leading to serious and sometimes fatal injuries.

If you’ve ever suffered from heartburn, acid reflux, a peptic ulcer, or a sour stomach, you’ve probably taken Zantac. Available over the counter and by prescription, this medication has been a staple of medicine cabinets for decades.

Unfortunately, research findings in recent years have uncovered a frightening truth about this widely used medication. Far from being harmless, every dose taken puts people at risk for developing cancer due to the presence of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA).

In the wake of a traffic collision, dealing with insurance carriers to get the compensation you deserve is inevitable. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be eligible to receive a significant amount of money.

When auto insurance carriers know their policyholder is liable for an accident, they know they will have to pay a claim. Insurance companies do not stay in business by paying the full amount of every claim that comes their way. Instead, they try to minimize financial liability.

If an insurance adjuster thinks the company can get away with not paying the claim, they may drag out the process by refusing to settle for a reasonable amount. This forces injured victims to do one of two things: give up or file a lawsuit.

One of the most common questions lawyers hear is, “How much is my claim worth?”

Statistics show that approximately 20 to 50 million people suffer injuries due to car accidents annually. Many of them have to deal with severe injuries while grappling with the burden of paying their medical bills.

Neck Pain

The forces involved in a car accident are tremendous. However, when someone is involved in a car accident, they do not always immediately realize the full extent of their injuries. Often, an accident victim will see blood or broken skin, and their brain will tell them that is the source of their pain. However, most car accident injuries do not appear right after the accident, especially those involving the lower back and neck. Injuries to the neck and lower back are extremely common and will often carry lifelong consequences. Limited movement, lingering pain, jarring headaches: these are all caused by damage to the neck and back. However, these are also some of the most overlooked injuries.

Car Accident Airbag Failure

There are more vehicles on the road now than ever before. In fact, at the end of 2019, numbers reached over 279 million and are only expected to keep rising. However, the number of fatal automobile accidents is declining. Advancements in cutting-edge safety technologies play a large part in the lower number of fatalities, especially airbags. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over the span of 30 years, more than 50,000 lives were saved due to the proper deployment of airbags.

The unfortunate truth is that airbags can only be a benefit to the occupants of a vehicle if they deploy – and if they do so in a timely manner. Airbags can fail to deploy for a variety of reasons. Most commonly, there’s a manufacturer defect to blame.
