Pa. Supreme Court injects itself into DUI blood test refusal

In a drunk driving prosecution, blood test results can be compelling evidence. These tests are also damaging even if a defendant refuses to submit a blood sample. But, the state Supreme Court agreed to review an appeal of a conviction where the motorist refused to submit this sample.

Social media and its potential impact on your divorce

As Pennsylvania readers know, many people have a profile on some type of social media platform. From Facebook to Instagram to SnapChat, many different platforms allow you share your pictures, information and personal thoughts. If you are on Facebook, you would be prudent to consider how your use of this site could impact your divorce proceedings. 

Distracted driving can cause car accidents

Distracted driving has become a leading cause of car accidents in recent years. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that distracted driving caused 3,450 deaths in 2016 and 391,000 injuries in 2015. As the number of car accidents has increased, the number of lawsuits citing distracted driving as the cause has also increased.

Veterans and bankruptcy

Veterans have some special protections under the law, but they also face some hurdles, bureaucratic and otherwise. A veteran receiving disability benefits who undergoes Chapter 7 bankruptcy will face some unique obstacles. Disability benefits are counted as income and hamper a veteran's chances for achieving a discharge of their debts and a fresh financial start.

Clearing bankruptcy from credit reports

Bankruptcy can lead to a fresh financial start through debt liquidation. But, a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy appearance on a credit report can place obstacles to seeking credit and reestablishing a new financial profile. There are ways to speed up the removal of bankruptcy on reports. Reestablishing credit can open a new financial future, grant access to loans and even lead to high credit scores.
