When a property owner is not liable for your injury

Pittsburgh has had its share of snow and ice this year, as raging winter storms have swept across the nation, even hitting the southern half of the country. This is the time of year when property owners, especially business owners, need to ensure that they keep their properties safe for customers and visitors. It may mean doing a lot of maintenance removing snow and ice - possibly on a daily basis.

Two devastating plant accidents being investigated as explosions

Fires and explosions are some of the worst kinds of accidents that can occur. They leave behind ruined lives and ruined property, and can take out massive amounts of both in a single incident. Pittsburgh attorneys have dealt with many burn victims and their families to help them recover from such devastations. An explosion from gases or heating equipment can happen without any warning, giving victims no chance to escape.

Security in a courtroom may be inadequate

Property owners are responsible for the safety of visitors to their property. Therefore, they should ensure that their property does not have dangerous areas - such as open holes, insubstantial lighting, broken steps and other dangers. In addition to these dangers, some properties are required to have security measures in place to help ensure the safety of their visitors or customers, such as security lights for night time access, security guards and even security cameras.

Icy conditions mean slip-fall risk, occasions for kindness

Pittsburgh has been in the cellar of a cold winter chill in the past few days. By comparison, today's temperatures are probably seen by many as downright balmy. But the thermometer hasn't pushed up beyond the freezing mark just yet. Property owners may still be facing challenges in keeping their grounds snow and ice free.

Home Heating Safety Tips

In 2011, heating equipment was the cause of more than 50,000 home fires, causing 400 deaths and 1,500 injuries. Space heaters accounted for one-third of all home fires and 80% of all deaths. Half of all home heating fires happen in December, January and February. With a few simple safety tips and precautions, you can prevent most heating fires from happening.

DUI accident victim blames bars and wins case

Drunk driving in Pennsylvania is serious business. The number of deaths from DUI is astonishing and just holding drunk drivers accountable is not always enough. Those serving alcohol to an already-inebriated individual can also be held accountable for over-serving a customer.
