Seek compensation for lost income after a car accident

There are many costs associated with a car accident, financial and otherwise, that can impact a Pennsylvania family for months and years to come. A car accident can leave an individual unable to continue his or her job, drive or perform the same physical tasks as before the crash. Those who have been seriously injured by the negligent or reckless actions of another person have the option and the right to seek financial compensation for all losses, including lost income. 

Settlement granted to victim of Pennsylvania car accident

A Pennsylvania judge has granted a settlement to five different plaintiffs in a lawsuit over a car accident. The defendant was ordered to pay $30,000, split between the five defendants, for his actions that led to personal injuries and financial loss. According to a report, the five men were riding as passengers at the time of the car accident.

Pennsylvania motor vehicle accidents may cause injuries, death

A tragic accident recently led to one person's death as well as injuries to four passengers in Pennsylvania. The car accident took place on a recent Thursday morning. Sometimes fatal or injurious motor vehicle accidents happen because of the carelessness of one individual, which is grounds for a civil suit.

Ironworker suffers workplace injuries

When people go to work in Pennsylvania, they naturally do not anticipate becoming injured in a workplace accident. Workplace injuries, however, can happen at any time due to machine malfunctions or other workplace mishaps, some of which are beyond the worker's control. One person in another state recently suffered injuries at a jobsite.

Exploding airbags could cause serious accident injuries

Pennsylvania drivers, as well as millions of others across the country, may be at risk for injuries due to unsafe airbags. Two major airbag manufacturers are currently under investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) after reports of exploding airbags. Drivers whose vehicles contain these defective parts could be injured by exploding airbags, possibly causing accidents and accident injuries. 

Father of unlicensed driver in fatal accident enters guilty pleas

Aug. 30, 2014 is most likely a day that the families of three dead teens would like to forget. That was the day that a Pennsylvania man allowed his 15-year-old daughter -- who did not have a driver's license -- to drive his car with her friends in order to get some breakfast ("15-year-old girl behind the wheel in fatal Poconos crash," Sept. 4, 2014). On July 9, 2015, he entered guilty pleas to several misdemeanors in connection with the fatal accident that occurred that day.

Standing too long at work can lead to workplace injuries

Research has determined that prolonged periods of standing at work can lead to muscle strains, joint problems and back problems. While many jobs do require that workers stand, it is important that Pennsylvania workers understand how to seek deserved compensation for workplace injuries. In fact, standing can lead to serious health complications if these problems persist over time. 

How can employees prevent heat-related workplace injuries?

During the summer, it is very important for Pennsylvania workers to understand how to work safely in the heat. As temperatures rise, workers are exposed to a greater risk of heat-related workplace injuries and illness. With the proper precautions, employers and employees can work together to make conditions as safe as possible during the summer months. 

Was your car accident caused by distracted driving?

It is no secret that distracted driving is a growing concern across the country. In fact, a recent survey of drivers found that most drivers feel less safe on the road than they did just five years ago, despite anti-texting laws and safer vehicles. The widespread use of cellphones is one of the main sources of distraction for drivers, increasing the chance of a car accident and serious injuries. 

Workers' compensation for workers exposed to dangerous substances

Pennsylvania workers know that in construction and industrial fields, workers may occasionally be exposed to dangerous substances. One particularly hazardous material is silica, which can lead to cancer and death for workers who breathe in the particles. Those who have contracted illnesses because of on-the-job exposure to this and other dangerous materials could be eligible for workers' compensation benefits. 

Unable to work because of an illness? Understand your rights.

If a Pennsylvania individual finds that he or she is unable to work due to a cancer diagnosis or another disabling condition, it is important to understand how to receive needed benefits. When a person who is unable to work files a disability claim, he or she will be required to provide documentation to validate a claim. Documents should come from doctors and any health care providers that have provided medical treatment for the applicant.
