Injury risks when bikers share the roads with negligent motorists

Taking to the roads around Altoona and other areas in Pennsylvania on a motorcycle could be exciting and even intoxicating. Few other activities can compare with the freedom of riding a bike. However, the fact that motorcycles have only two wheels makes this mode of transport significantly more dangerous than four-wheeled vehicles.

We help injured construction workers get compensation

There are many people who work in various segments of the construction industry in Pennsylvania. From highway and utility workers to those who are in charge of building homes or even large skyscrapers, all of these people perform jobs that are invaluable to the area's economy.

Safety violations can change a trench into a grave

If you are a member of a construction crew in Altoona or another city in Pennsylvania, you will likely risk your life frequently. Jobs on elevated platforms and scaffolds, around large construction vehicles like excavators, and inside trenches all pose life-threatening hazards. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has data that shows a significant number of construction site fatalities involve caved-in excavations and collapsed trench walls. For this reason, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has strict safety regulations and standards with which compliance is crucial.
