Seat belts save many, but not all

It is a fact that wearing a seat belt when traveling in a motor vehicle in Pennsylvania may be one of the best ways to reduce the risk of losing one’s life in a car crash. Unfortunately, even seat belt use is not a 100-percent guarantee.

Workers' compensation could assist those hurt in explosions

Whether in Pennsylvania or located elsewhere in the country, workers who are injured on the job may be unsure of how to proceed after such an event. Fortunately, many are entitled to file workers' compensation claims to help cope with the aftermath of an accident. Multiple employees in a neighboring state may choose to file after being hurt by explosions in a cosmetics factory.

Workers' compensation may help injured construction workers

Pennsylvania businesses often implement various safety precautions to try to prevent potential injuries for their employees. However, sometimes accidents happen in ways no one expects.

Pennsylvania car accidents: Passenger killed in head-on crash

The overlooked danger of parking lots

When most people think of car accidents, they imagine two vehicles hitting each other on the street or highway. However, a large portion of accidents occurs in parking lots and garages when vehicles are moving at relatively slow speeds. In fact, CBS News reported that nearly one out of every five collisions occurs in a parking lot.
