Erie Injury Lawyers Change Approach To Accident News

April 15, 2011

April 16, 2011, ERIE, PA — Observant readers have noticed a change in our accident blog. It’s true, we’ve decided to take a different approach to recording northwest Pennsylvania’s accident news.

In the past, we’ve tried to document all the relevant accident news for Erie, Crawford, Warren, Forest and Venango Counties. We’ve provided brief summaries of the Pennsylvania car accidents and the reported car accident injuries. Our purpose was three fold. First, we wanted to collect in one place the accident history of the region. Second, we wanted to preserve that history over time so that the sheer volume of accidental injuries could be appreciated in a way that is lost by simply observing the news on a daily basis. Third, we wanted to ensure that there was a human and individualized connection to the information.

We think we’ve accomplished our purposes over the last nine months. In that relatively brief span, we’ve documented literally hundreds of Pennsylvania car crashes, commercial truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and other accidental injury cases. Now, we’re going to take a more focused approach.

We’re still going to report on all hit and run collisions. We think there is a value to the community in publicizing Pennsylvania hit-and-run accidents and, if even one hit-and-run driver is caught with our help, the effort will have been worth it. We will also publicize stories that illustrate fundamental safety lessons. Regular readers know that we strongly encourage seat belt use, child safety restraints, motorcycle awareness and motorcycle helmet use. When stories present themselves that allow us to reinforce those messages, we will take the opportunity to use the story.

We do not, however, plan to publicize every accidental injury story as had been our practice in the past.

Still, if you know of a story that you think needs to be publicized in our blog, let us know. You can call in and report the story at 814-273-2010 or use the web contact form on the right side of this page.
