New ATF Chief to focus on illegal guns

Gun crimes have become a top priority for law enforcement in Philadelphia. They believe that guns lead to a number of different crimes, including drug trafficking, rapes, murders and robberies. In 2011, there were more illegal guns seized in the City of Brotherly Love than any other American city except for New York City.

Trial set to begin for driver in fatal New Year's Eve crash

A deadly crash that occurred on New Year's Eve 2011 will be examined during a trial set to begin in June.

The trial will include a jury and if they find the man guilty, he will face a mandatory minimum sentence of three years per fatality. Two people died in the crash.

Pro-business judges may be hindering injury claims

A new report is arguing that big business has influenced the legal system to the point it is affecting the likelihood that an injured worker will succeed with filing a suit against an unsafe employer. This may come as alarming news for employees in Pennsylvania, especially those who believe they are at risk for an on-the-job accident. Researchers and experts that worked on the report examined many facets of this issue and found that business organizations have been financing campaigns for judges that tend to rule in favor of corporate defendants in tort claims cases.

Military personnel more likely to be involved in car accidents

Data is showing that military veterans have an increased risk of being involved in a fatal motor vehicle accident. This is alarming for many in Pennsylvania as loved ones returning from deployments are often welcome sights that instill feelings of comfort and eliminate worry and dread. But researchers have uncovered that men who served in either the Iraq or Afghanistan wars are 76 percent more likely to be involved in a fatal car accident than civilians. Women who served in either war are 43 percent more likely. Anyone involved in a motor vehicle accident should contact an attorney, especially if they are injured and the other driver can be held responsible.
