Repeat DUI offenders law moves through Pennsylvania legislature

Part of the beauty and frustration of the law is that it is fluid and changes often. State legislatures, including the one here in Pennsylvania, pass new laws or amend others when needed. One of the most recent laws moving through the state's legislature has to do with repeat DUI offenders.

Will accident victim file personal injury claim?

Having a mechanical issue or a flat tire on an interstate here in Pennsylvania or elsewhere can be disquieting due to the speed at which traffic flows. Even when taking as many precautions as possible such as getting as far off the road as possible and watching for hazards, it may not be enough to avoid injury. Another driver could easily put a person's life in danger due to distraction, impairment or some other behavior behind the wheel that leads to injury and the possibility of a personal injury claim.

Avoid multitasking while driving to lower the risk of accidents

As a Du Bois area motorist, you are probably aware that a leading cause of motor vehicle collisions is distractions. You may even be guilty of driving while distracted. Driving with just one hand on the wheel, looking at the GPS or reaching for a phone may seem harmless, but these types of activities often lead to catastrophic injuries and death. 

Parenting plans: A particularly challenging part of family law

Sure, divorce involves a variety of issues that Pennsylvania couples need to resolve such as property division, spousal support and child support. Even so, you may agree with many other divorcing couples that dealing with child custody and parenting plans may constitute a particularly challenging aspect of family law. Both parents want to be as involved in their children's lives as possible despite the end of the marriage. Making that happen could take some work and planning.

Consider what happens after distribution when estate planning

Taking care of family members beyond death is crucial to many Pennsylvania residents. This often comes through in estate planning as people leave instructions for how their assets are to be distributed to those they love. The primary goal of any estate plan is often to make sure that the person creating it retains control over who receives what upon death.
