You Shouldn't Have To Fight For Workers' Comp Benefits

Former employee presses ahead with workers' compensation lawsuit

Many Philadelphia workers have likely been asked by their employer to attend a meeting nearby but away from their typical place of business. What would the employer do and what are its responsibilities if an employee is injured on the way to that meeting? A workers' compensation case involving a former Noodles & Co. employee provides some answers.

OSHA report finds safety violations at Verizon after accident

As children, we may have seen downed power lines around our Pennsylvania neighborhoods. Our parents wisely cautioned us to stay away from them. Live wires can pose a significant risk to the health and life of anyone who comes into contact with them. Telecommunications workers operate around power lines every day, but usually are kept free from harm through proper safety measures. Employees have the right to expect that their employers are following applicable safety measures. The death of one worker illustrates how quickly things can go wrong when correct procedures are not observed.

Workplace accident leads to death of man at construction site

Pennsylvania readers know that construction sites have the distinct potential to be a hazardous working environment. Workers often have to deal with heavy machinery, large quantities of raw materials and open floors that can lead to falls. While construction companies and their workers usually take proper safety precautions, accidents still can happen.

Lawsuit against warehouse companies alleges dangerous conditions

Many of the consumer goods in this country pass through a few massive distribution centers, where they are unloaded and reshipped to various cities, including Philadelphia. These centers rely on speed and inexpensive labor to keep costs down. But workers at one gargantuan collection of warehouses have filed a federal lawsuit claiming that they have been exposed to dangerous working conditions and have been denied even minimum wage compensation for their work.

OSHA finds safety violations at shipbuilder's facility

Pennsylvania is rightfully proud of its storied history of heavy industry, but we know that people in particular lines of work are exposed to greater risk of injury or death while on the job. Occupations where employees are frequently around large machines and heavy raw materials are often among the most dangerous. That does not mean, however, that workers in more hazardous industries should be any less entitled to compensation for workplace injuries.
