Workplace accidents and workers' compensation wage-loss

Workers in Altoona and the surrounding areas of Pennsylvania could find themselves victimized by workplace accidents without warning. This applies to any kind of job whether it is one that is considered risky or one that is relatively sedentary and safe. Accidents and injuries do not discriminate, and one of the biggest issues after suffering injuries on the job is making ends meet. Fortunately, there are workers' compensation benefits. It is important, however, for workers to understand various aspects of workers' compensation such as wage-loss payments and when they are made.

Risk of motorcycle accidents clear after fatal crash with pickup

Motorcycle riders in Pennsylvania are a constant on the roadways. Drivers of four-wheel vehicles and even larger vehicles must share the road with motorcycles and their riders. Motorists should ensure the safety of themselves and others. This is especially important for bikers because they are so vulnerable to major injuries and death when there are motorcycle accidents. With the number of risks increasing, there are times when a motorcycle crash is unavoidable. Those who are injured in a motorcycle accident or the family of a deceased loved one must know the steps to take to file a lawsuit to be compensated.

Doctors and nurses have high rates of worker injuries

Working in the health care industry can be an incredibly rewarding experience. From helping patients to finding the perfect treatment plan, few other careers offer the same satisfaction. Unfortunately, worker satisfaction is not where this industry peaks. Instead, it is number one for worker injuries. 

Pennsylvania one of the worst in U.S. for motorcycle accidents

Motorcyclists are a common sight in Pennsylvania. Riders will sing the praises of being on the open road on their motorcycles and express how much they enjoy the activity. While it is certainly an interesting subculture with people from all walks of life taking part, that does not eliminate the natural dangers that motorcyclists face. An accident can cause severe injuries and death. Research has examined the frequency with which motorcycle accidents happen across the nation and found that Pennsylvania is near the top.
