We rely on truck drivers and commercial delivery drivers for the food, medicine, household supplies, and other goods we use every day. Never has that been more clear than now, as the U.S. battles the coronavirus pandemic. From personal protective equipment to groceries and toilet paper, we have what we need to survive all thanks to these drivers.
Trucking has always been a tough job, and that’s especially true in times of crisis. Drivers may wonder: will the pandemic affect my eligibility for workers’ comp if I get hurt? What are my options if I get sick with COVID-19 while working?

Airbnb stays becoming more common throughout Pennsylvania
Airbnb has grown rapidly over the last several years, including in Northeastern Pennsylvania; the Poconos have become an Airbnb hot spot. Monroe County was Airbnb’s third-most profitable county in Pennsylvania in 2019 behind Philadelphia and Allegheny (Pittsburgh).

As Airbnb becomes an increasingly popular way to book accommodations, guests should be aware of their rights in case something goes wrong.

Property Damage Claims After a Car Accident
One of the most common questions people ask after a car accident is: How can I get my vehicle fixed? Who is responsible for repairs? Do I need a lawyer?
If your vehicle sustained damage in the accident but you were not physically hurt, then, fortunately, you won’t need a personal injury lawyer. Property damage claims are usually faster and easier to resolve than personal injury claims. In fact, most property damage claims can be handled without an attorney. But we understand that getting your vehicle up and running again can be very stressful. Here’s what you can expect with a property damage-only claim.
