Pothole Accidents make up a significant number of injuries in the United States. This is even truer in our area (the northeastern states). Through wear and tear, weather treatments, extreme heat in the summer wreak havoc with our parking lots, driveways, sidewalks and roadways. The dreaded pothole has accounted for more injuries than we would like to see. This passage will deal solely with injuries sustained and the liability for those pothole accidents. You are on a busy street crossing to the other side. There is a pothole in the crosswalk but you do not see it due to the congestion. The next thing you remember, you are in the hospital. This is a likely scenario in a Trip and Fall Accident involving a pothole.

The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act is designed to compensate injured workers for time missed due to an injury that occurred while on the job. The Act also provides for any injury related medical expenses. The amount of compensation an injured worker received is base on his or her salary and rarely on the severity of the injury. Of course someone who is severely injured will end up receiving more in compensation than someone who is not badly injured because the severely injured worker will be out of work longer than a worker who has not been severely injured. If a worker has suffered a catastrophic injury, such as the loss of an eye or a limb, that is known as a specific loss, and the Workers’ Compensation Act sets forth specific dollar amounts for each specific loss.

In Pennsylvania, Driving Under the Influence (DUI) is a serious offense that carries significant jail and license penalties. Those penalties can cause significant harm to you if you try to obtain a job, lease, or even if someone searches your name online and finds your arrest record.

Driving Under the Influence (DUI) is a serious offense. In Pennsylvania, a DUI is a crime under the vehicle code, where even on a first offense, you can face jail time, loss of license, and severe financial consequences.
There are other consequences as well. Since DUI is a criminal offense, any person charged with DUI will be fingerprinted, booked, and their information will go into what is known as the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). This is significant because once your information is in NCIC, the fact you were arrested for DUI will show up on a standard employment background check. In Pennsylvania, arrests are also public information, so anybody with an internet connection can find out if you were arrested or convicted of DUI

Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Pennsylvania is a serious criminal offense. Unlike some other states, Pennsylvania treats DUI cases as criminal offenses, punishable by jail time, license suspension, and onerous fines and costs.
As stated earlier, DUI cases are treated as crimes. As a result, when you are arrested for DUI, your information is placed in the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). Placement in NCIC means that any officer, court, employer, or other person conducting a background check can see if you were arrested for DUI.

If you have been injured at work, many questions arise, because Workers’ Compensation law can be complicated. The first question is whether you suffered a work injury. Pennsylvania law requires that you must be injured in the course and scope of your employment and the injury must be related to your employment. Most of the time it is clear whether someone has suffered a work injury, but sometimes it is not. That is when it is important to discuss the situation with a lawyer to figure out if you have a valid workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ Compensation is different from Personal Injury law in that the award you would receive as an injured worker is based more on your salary than on the severity of your injury. Generally, you would receive about 2/3 of your average weekly wage in the judge finds you have a compensable injury. The Workers’ Compensation award is tax free, so it ends up being close to your take home pay.

If you have not retained a lawyer or law firm (which you should if you are injured) then you need to report the claim to your own insurance company. Pennsylvania and New Jersey are both “no fault” states when it comes to medical care. This means that everyone’s own insurance pays first. Many people call our office and do not understand why their insurance is paying their medical bill when they are not at fault for the accident. No fault means just that. In order to ensure that people obtain quick treatment for injuries, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey mandate that your auto insurance pay your medical bills until exhausted and then your private health insurance pays the excess medical bills.

Accidents occur almost every second of every day in this country. The difference between them is only the type of accident that they are a victim of. There are Car Accidents, Work Accidents, accidents caused by Defective Products, Fall Accidents, Slipping Accidents, chemical accidents and a myriad of others. What do all of these different types of accidents have in common? They all involve injuries. Seeking a lawyer or law firm for your accident case should be easy. There are thousands of lawyers in the tri-state area. However, not every lawyer or law firm is created equal. At the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, we handle all types of accident cases involving injuries.

If you are a first time offender, Driving While Suspended carries a one year license suspension and a $250 fine, plus court costs. By virtue of PennDOT rules, all suspensions and license consequences run consecutive to each other. In other words, suspensions do not run together, rather they run one after another. This can lead to disastrous consequences for your license because every offense leads to a longer and longer license suspension.
