Northeastern Pennsylvania is expected to experience some of the worst flooding conditions in modern history by the time Hurricane Sandy clears out.  If the storm predictions hold true, many roads will look more like rivers and streams than streets and highways.  As we all know, driving on road-covered streets can be treacherous.  In consideration thereof, to avoid accidents and to avoid getting stuck in high water on a roadway, Dougherty, Leventhal & Price, (DLP) is urging residents of Northeastern Pennsylvania to stay home until the storm clears.  Fortunately, most businesses and schools have heeded the warnings and closed.  It is believed that many roads will also be closed so many people will not have any other choice but to stay home.

Undoubtedly,  some truck drivers and tractor trailers drivers will continue their runs throughout the municipalities of Northeastern Pennsylvania despite the Hurricane Sandy.  These trucks and tractor trailers will likely be seen cruising through the streets of Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Hazleton, Honesdale, Bloomsburg, Williamsport, Moosic, Dunmore, Stroudsburg, Tunkhannock, Montrose, Milford, Bethleham, Jim Thorpe, Pottsville, Towanda, Mansfield, Wellboro and Berwick.  Trucks and tractor trailers will likely continue their routes through0ut the counties of Northeastern Pennsylvania, including Lackawanna, Luzerne, Wayne, Pike, Monroe, Susquehanna, Columbia, Carbon, Northampton, Lycoming, Montour, Bradford, Tioga. and Schuylkill.  Hopefully, none of these trucks or tracter trailers will crash and cause any severe injuries to anyone.  However, truck and tractor trailer accidents occur on the highways of Northeastern Pennsylvania every day.  DLP regularly represents truck and tractor trailer accident victims who suffer serious and often catastrophic injuries due to the negligence and reckless of truck drivers and tractor trailer drivers.  If you are seriously injured as a result of the negligence and/or recklessness of a truck driver or a tractor trailer driver, call an attorney at DLP immediately for a free consulation regarding your legal rights and potential remedies.  At DLP, our thirteen lawyers work hard to get innocent accident victims the money and justice they deserve.
