Reporting the accident is vital so that police and first responders arrive at the scene, giving evidence that your collision occurred. You can obtain a copy of the police report at the location or later by requesting it. You will be transported to a hospital for further attention if your injuries are serious. Even if minor injuries occur, you can still go to the hospital to be checked out, which is something you should do.
Not feeling any pain or other physical problems? Remember that symptoms of some potentially serious injuries are delayed or masked because of shock and adrenaline rush. You should still get checked out to establish a record that you sought medical attention for possible injuries. Don’t tell responding police or fire personnel that you’re fine. This may make it more challenging to place an injury claim later.
According to the National Council on Aging, one out of every 10 older Americans has been subjected to some form of abuse. Because we want to protect our loved ones who are living in nursing homes, knowing the signs of abuse is important, so it can be reported and investigated. This is especially important since many cases of elder abuse are never reported. When family members know the signs to look for, they can be proactive in preventing these types of harm to their loved ones.
A number of cities in Pennsylvania have decriminalized the use of marijuana, but that doesn’t mean it’s legal. Driving under the influence of marijuana is completely different and viewed as impaired motoring. A driver who tests positive for any amount at all can end up being charged with DUI, even if you have a prescription for it from your doctor to treat your medical condition because Pennsylvania is a no-tolerance state.
Theft by deception is a type of serious crime that is often difficult to understand. As with any theft, it involves taking something that does not belong to you. However, theft by deception means doing this by creating a false image that is used to obtain the other person’s property and not correcting this illusion in the future.
The difference lies in the type of crime that has been committed and where it happened. Crimes that occur across state lines become federal cases. However, a crime that violates federal laws can happen in a single state. The differences are sometimes complex and require an attorney with experience dealing with federal crimes. Let’s take an in-depth look at what turns a crime into a federal case.
The Pennsylvania Constitution ensures that residents of the state are protected from unreasonable search and seizure whether it involves a person, possessions, papers or homes. Probable cause is necessary for police to conduct search and seizure under the 4th Amendment, which helps provide protection from unreasonable searches. When your constitutional rights are violated, the search and seizure that was performed may be unconstitutional and inadmissible in court.
