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

February 2014 Archives

Small business seek to prevent work-related injuries

There is some good news for Pennsylvania workers. According to a recent survey, workplace safety is the number one concern for small business owners, outranking cyber-security, professional liability and natural disaster risks. Some say the survey's results show that employers value their workers and want to maintain productivity and morale while avoiding workers' compensation costs. In an attempt to protect workers, small business owners hope to address slip-and-falls, which account for almost 25 percent of workplace injuries.

Gas well explodes in PA, injures worker, another missing

The oil and gas industry in Pennsylvania is strong. While this is good for our state as it improves the economy and brings new jobs, individuals in this line of work often find themselves at risk of being harmed. "Blowouts," the term used when control over a gas or oil well is lost, often result in explosions, fires and injuries. Those who suffer a workplace injury as a result of one of these accidents should be aware of his or her legal rights to ensure he or she is medically and financially protected.

A Pennsylvania factory was recently rocked by an explosion that left one worker dead and two others injured.

Former Pittsburgh Steelers player denied workers' compensation

Nearly every job in Pennsylvania poses risk of injury. Some of these risks are foreseeable and preventable while others are not. If an employee is injured in a workplace accident, then he or she may need compensation to help cover his or her lost wages and medical expenses. Workers' compensation, provided by an employer's insurance, is meant to help cover these costs. Yet, sometimes claims are denied and injured workers are left out to dry. For this reason, it is important Pennsylvania workers familiarize themselves with how and when workers' compensation can be recovered.
