Workers' compensation benefits families of deceased employees

No matter the field of work, most jobs carry some risk to one degree or another. Some careers, though, such as construction, do carry a higher chance of injury. Luckily for Pennsylvania workers injured on the job, workers' compensation helps relieve some of the financial worries for the resultant lost wages or medical expenses.

Pedestrians can suffer serious injuries in car accidents

When drivers get behind the wheel, they must remain attentive to their surroundings. If they fail to notice other cars or people nearby, inattentive drivers can easily cause car accidents. Collisions involving pedestrians often lead to serious injuries. Three people were recently injured in Pennsylvania when a driver lost control.

Top 3 medical malpractice claims

Medical providers very often have their patients’ lives in their hands and bear the responsibility of giving effective appropriate treatment to every person. This is stressful for professionals who are often overworked in facilities that are understaffed. The result is a higher frequency of mistakes. These mistakes may be inconsequential, or they may seriously damage a patient’s life. These three common medical malpractice claims represent the latter.

Family may file wrongful death claim after woman killed in crash

There could be any number of reasons a car accident might happen. Whether drivers fail to pay attention to their surroundings or actively break traffic laws, these accidents can lead to serious injuries or even fatalities. One Pennsylvania family may consider filing a wrongful death lawsuit against a driver after a young woman was killed in a crash.

Workers' compensation could help those injured by heavy machinery

In spite of the safety precautions companies have in place for working with heavy machinery, accidents can still happen. Pennsylvania employees who are injured in these types of accidents often file workers' compensation claims to help cope with the aftermath. One employee now likely faces a long road to recovery after a severe injury by an industrial machine.
