Haunted House Risks: Common Injuries and What Operators Can (and Should) Do To Prevent Them
Haunted houses are a staple of the Halloween season. From local communities to amusement parks, numerous haunted houses pop up across Pennsylvania this time each year.
Medical malpractice is alarmingly common. But, even though this is the case, proving your legal rights as a victim of medical malpractice can still prove challenging. Proving medical malpractice requires clear evidence of liability, and, to pursue claims, patients and their families must have a clear understanding of when medical mistakes are severe enough to justify claims for financial compensation.
Serious car accidents often leave drivers and passengers suffering from back injuries. Back injuries can involve bone fractures, disc injuries, soft tissue damage and/or nerve damage; and while some car accident victims will experience effects immediately, others will gradually begin to develop back pain over time.
Given the almost daily deluge of rain we have been experiencing, hydroplaning is a very real problem for which all drivers must be prepared. Hydroplaning occurs when the vehicle’s tire-to-road traction becomes separated by water. This grip separation results in a loss of control (braking and steering), which can result in a violent accident.
It’s finally football season. Summer practice sessions are finally over, the temperature is cooling down and excitement is in the air in Easton. Whether you cheer for your favorite team on Friday nights or Saturday afternoons, this is a very good time of year.

It’s back-to-school season in Pennsylvania, and that means that there are more cars on the roads. Unfortunately, this also means that there is a greater risk for accidents. With many students riding to school on buses, bus safety is a concern for children—and their parents—as well.
Summer is here, and that means lots of families are heading out on vacation. While some families do more planning than others, almost no one prepares for the possibility of their child suffering an injury while traveling away from home.
The dangers of distracted driving are well-known. Texting and other distractions interfere with drivers’ ability to stay safe in multiple ways, and it only takes a split-second of inattention for a driver to cause a serious or fatal accident.
Who Is Most At Risk for a Slip and Fall?
Slips and falls are among the most common causes of traumatic brain injuries (TBI), bone fractures, soft tissue damage and other physical injuries. While anyone can slip and fall, some individuals are at greater risk than others. Unfortunately, while knowing your (or a family member’s) level of risk can help you mitigate this risk in some cases, there are still many factors that will be beyond your control.
