How many fatalities occur in large truck accidents?

Anyone in Pennsylvania who has ever been next to a semi truck or other big commercial vehicle on a freeway knows how uneasy this can feel. In a moment, the extremely large size and heavy weight of a tractor trailer becomes very evident in comparison to that of a typical car, truck or sport utility vehicle. If you have ever in those moments wondered just how many people die in accidents involving large trucks, records from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have the answer for you.

What is the CMS' Five-Star Quality Rating System?

If you are one of the many Pennsylvania residents who must find how to properly care for an elderly parent, grandparent or other relative, you know all too well how difficult the search for quality care can be. When you are looking for a nursing home in which to place your loved one, you want to feel confident that he or she will receive the right level of care and treatment. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services may be able to help you in your search thanks to their Five-Star Quality Rating System.

Pennsylvania residents know that a workplace accident can happen to anyone regardless of industry or job function. However, there are some lines of work that are naturally more dangerous than others.

Knowing how to stay protected against such errors while still being able to trust in the quality of care is a balancing act indeed.
