Pennsylvania cemetery worker may be seeking workers' compensation

To keep America running like a fine-tuned machine, every job needs to have someone to complete the task, regardless of how undesirable that job may be. Maintaining the final resting place for any deceased Pennsylvania resident requires attention to detail and a demeanor that won't upset the grieving members of the deceased. Digging burial sites is also a requirement of a cemetery caretaker, and it can be a laborious task that can lead to injury. Should one be injured while on the job, the workers' compensation program is in place to help those hurt get through the temporary loss of income.

Medical malpractice: a shockingly common phenomenon

When you sustain a serious injury or become ill and need to go to the hospital, you expect that the medical professionals who treat you will take good care of you, and you soon will be back home and working at your job. Considering the number of excellent medical facilities in and around South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, your expectations are not unreasonable. You therefore probably will be shocked and appalled to learn that medical malpractice not only is commonplace, but is the third leading cause of death in the U.S., accounting for upwards of 251,000 deaths each year.

Victims of car accidents may be entitled to seek damages

Victims of motor vehicle crashes face many unexpected burdens. In addition to the property damage that often results from car accidents, victims may also suffer serious injuries that can lead to physical and emotional trauma and significant medical bills. Two Pennsylvania police officers were recently hurt in a collision that may have been caused by a negligent driver.

Workers' compensation may benefit those in industrial accidents

In spite of the many safety precautions businesses implement in their facilities, accidents on the job still occur. Many employees who suffer work injuries choose to file for workers' compensation benefits. When an employee is killed on the job, surviving families are typically entitled to file for survivors' benefits. Several Pennsylvania workers and workers' families may choose to file claims after two men were recently killed and others were injured in a crane accident.

Hit-and-run car accidents too often result in fatalities

Motor vehicle collisions may occur at the most unexpected times. In many cases, car accidents are the results of negligent drivers. These drivers may be considered negligent by being distracted by their cell phones, intoxicated or even too tired to drive. One Pennsylvania man was killed in a recent crash that may have been caused by a negligent driver.
