Fatal four: Issues that often cause Pennsylvania workers injury

You may be one of many Altoona residents who earns a living in the construction industry. In this town and many other Pennsylvania regions, hardly a day goes by when construction crews aren't hard at work, often in high-risk situations, such as carrying out duties on highways or other high-traffic areas. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says there are four issues most frequently associated with worker injuries.

Did a drunk driving accident cause you injury?

If you are age 21 or older and want to have a glass of wine or other alcoholic beverage while dining out with friends, you're not necessarily breaking the law if you then get behind the wheel of a car to drive. However, because drunk driving causes tens of thousands of deaths every year, Pennsylvania law allows severe penalties under conviction for illegally operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol.

Pedestrian deaths continue to be a problem in Pennsylvania

According to a recent preliminary analysis that was reported by a Pennsylvania media outlet, the number of pedestrian deaths in this state went up by about 30 to 40 percent in 2018. In 2018, Pennsylvania had 90 pedestrian fatalities related to car accidents, whereas the number in 2017 was 64.
