Fallen trees. Fragments of broken traffic signals. Furniture that flew out of the back of a truck bed. Debris on the highway is a major hazard to vehicles barreling at speeds upwards of 65 mph toward these large objects. But reporting road debris is one of the easiest ways to help stop preventable accidents from happening.
There are a lot of advantages to choosing a vacation rental home over a hotel, resort, or other short-term travel accommodation. Renting a vacation home can be a great option for groups or families looking to get away and spend quality time together in a more spacious, private, and homelike environment than a commercial hotel. Online vacation rental marketplaces like VRBO, HomeAway, FlipKey, and Airbnb have capitalized on the merits their properties offer to travelers looking for more isolated vacation alternatives amid pandemic-era concerns.

This was the essay topic:
French novelist Marcel Proust once described a character recalling vivid memories from childhood after eating a madeleine cookie dipped in tea. Often, senses like taste and smell can cause these “Proustian memories.” Disney Pixar’s Ratatouille showed this moment when Anton Ego, the food critic, takes a bite of ratatouille and remembers his childhood. Talk about a time you had a Proustian memory. What triggered the memory? How far back did it reach? What did you reflect on after remembering that moment? Did it change you or give you a new perspective?

Hospitals get ratings for quality and safety so that you can choose which hospital will provide you with the best care possible when you need medical help. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) produces a list of Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings, and recently released a new list with their 1-star quality ratings.
Giving birth is already a stressful, painful experience. You hope that all the pain is worth it so that you can leave the hospital with your happy and healthy newborn. However, that’s not always the case. If something goes wrong unexpectedly or the doctor in charge of your delivery makes a mistake, then your child could suffer from birth injuries.
When you own a product and it malfunctions and you are harmed, it’s pretty straightforward that you have a claim against that manufacturer or marketing company for the damages you suffered. But what if you were borrowing a product from someone you know and were injured by its defects? Do you still have grounds for a product liability claim?
After being hurt by the negligence of a truck driver, trucking company, or a part manufacturer, you likely will want to seek legal help to get justice for your injuries and other damages. But you might not even know what to look for in searching for your legal representation. You want someone on your side who you can trust, which is why you should look for these qualifications in your truck accident lawyer.
Sometimes driving in a city like Philadelphia can be intimidating. That’s why people choose public transportation every day—they would rather take a bus, the train, or even walk through the city for convenience. Even though the city is in a grid system, and there’s plenty of walkways and sidewalks to get you from place to place, it doesn’t mean that the city is very walkable.
As a parent, you want to protect your child from everything in the world, especially harm. Unfortunately, accidents can’t always be avoided, and your children can get hurt. When they sustain minor injuries, healing can be easy, and they can return to normal rather quickly. However, if they suffer from a brain injury, their entire lives could change in an instant.
Sidewalks and crosswalks are in place to keep pedestrians safe across the country. To keep them even safer, there are laws that walkers and drivers have to follow. In our state, these laws are in Title 75 of the Statutes of Pennsylvania. Let’s take a look at the pedestrian laws in PA so that walkers and motorists alike know what rights pedestrians have on our roads.
I highly recommend this firm based on their expertise and outcomes. In addition, Rob Sachs genuinely cared about my emotions re: bringing my case (and all of the ancillary tasks surrounding it) to closure. Rob fully understood what was important to me and my family. Well done; thank you!

This firm represented our family in the wrongful death of my father. They greatly exceeded our expectations. Attorney Rob Sachs and his team went the extra mile. On a scale of 1-10, they are an 11! There may be bigger law firms in the Phila./Pa area, but none better!M. Scanlan

I worked with Rob and his team after I sustained a head injury in a car accident which resulted in years of treatment and loss of work. Rob and his staff were incredibly knowledgeable and successful in fighting for me. I felt as though Rob was personally invested in my case and recovery. After my case was won and "closed", Rob continued to be available as a resource. When the nature of my needs evolved to a different area of law, he referred me to another professional yet still remained involved. I would highly recommend Rob Sachs to anyone seeking legal representation.

I referred a rather complicated medical malpractice-wrongful death case to Rob Sachs of Shrager, Spivey & Sachsand am very thankful that I did. Two other prominent law firms in Philadelphia had reviewed the matter and turned the case down. Rob offered to give us another opinion and, after thoroughly examining all of the reports and medical records, he notified us that he would undertake representation. He very aggressively pursued the claim and eventually obtained a seven figure settlement! Remember, this was a case that two other medical malpractice firms had turned down, and the family of the deceased victim had all but given up until we got the case to Mr. Sachs. Can't say enough good things about him, his work ethic, his knowledge and expertise in this complex field of law and the results he obtained for the family!! I would highly recommend Rob to anyone looking for a great lawyer to handle their case!.
