As Philadelphia’s Children’s Injury Lawyer, Edith Pearce works with parents during what is often the most painful point in their entire lives. We often cover accidents, injuries and deaths on this blog. But today, we are thankful to report that a recent bus accident occurred while no children were on board. The accident occurred in Port Richmond.
It feels like there have been an unusual amount of bus accidents this year. In fact, this was the second one today near Philadelphia. With Thanksgiving approaching, we’d like to take this time to be thankful, and, if you’re reading this, please slow down just a little.
Distracted driving accidents are rapidly rising across the entire country. When you take your eyes off the road, you aren’t just putting yourself in danger, you are endangering others. When you get behind the wheel, you have a duty to care for the other people on the road.
