While it is still legal to use a hand-held cellphone while driving in Pennsylvania, it is against the law to do so in many other states in the nation. Several states have enacted laws against this practice as it has proved to be deadly for drivers and for other innocent people on the road. In 2017 alone, more than 3,100 people were killed in distracted driving accidents. Hands-free cellphones are thought to be a safer option for drivers who wish to minimize distractions. Yet, studies show that even these seemingly safe devices cause a dangerous amount of distractions on the road.
When people file for workers' compensation benefits after receiving an injury at work, they have to wait until their story is investigated before their claim is approved and benefits begin. During the time people are receiving benefits in Pennsylvania, they may be required to abide by certain requirements in order to remain eligible to receive benefits. Actions that are in violation of the agreement they have made with their employer could leave them facing legal consequences.
Who do you want to give your assets to when you pass away? This is not a question most Pennsylvania residents like to think about. It is probably something you do not want to face, but failing to do so will only cause problems for your loved ones in the end. Putting together a clear estate plan that meets all the qualifications to be legally valid takes time and thought. It is not something you should rush into doing, but it is not something you should put off either.
