Who can I take to court after a car accident?

Getting injured and suffering property damage in a car accident caused by someone else is overwhelming. Recovering from one's injuries requires not only time, but also money and if one has to take time off from work due to injuries and lose wages, it puts the crunch on in an already stressful time. This is why many car accident victims chose to pursue a personal injury claim against the negligent driver who caused the accident. But, in Pennsylvania, the unique rules surrounding car insurance laws need to be understood so one can know what they can sue for.

Available options for estate planning for special needs children

Most Pennsylvania residents know the importance of engaging in timely financial and retirement planning and how it ensures one's assets are divided off as one wishes but the significance of it is highlighted even more when one has special needs children. Providing for a special needs child's emotional, physical and financial needs for the long-term is as essential as it is challenging. According to one study, the lifetime cost to supporting someone with autism is around $1.4 million and if the person also has an intellectual disorder, the cost goes $2.3 million.

What factors determine best interests for child custody?

Previously, judges in Pennsylvania used the best interests standard to make child custody determinations without outlining what would be considered relevant for making this determination. This left both a lot of discretion and ambiguity around the topic with each party throwing whatever they thought was relevant to the decision and judges using their discretion. In 2011, however, the law changed slightly -- even though the best interests standard was being followed, the law laid out what factors should be given weighted consideration.
