A "slip and fall" is the term applied to an incident when you slip and fall on someone's property and the owner may be held legally responsible.
Neighbors on Stonecreek Court in Palmer Township saw justice last fall when the owner of a dog that terrorized the neighborhood was found guilty of harboring a dangerous dog and eight other counts. The pit bull, Kadafi, had broken loose several times and had bitten at least two people and one dog in their driveways and yards.
Earlier this month, an Allentown resident was tragically hit by two motor vehicles while riding on an electric scooter. The first car struck the man as he was riding along, which sent him flying into traffic. A United States Postal Service truck then hit the man again.
When it comes to car accidents in Allentown, the best way to overcome the challenges is to have an emergency plan. Then, if the unexpected does happen, you may have far less to deal with.
Hazards are everywhere we look on Pennsylvania's roadways. We have to contend with changing weather conditions, debris on the road, road construction, potholes, ice and snow (during the winter months) and more every time they get behind the wheel. In addition, we must deal with other drivers, watch our speed, drive defensively, and follow the rules of the road.
