Grain bin workers exposed to workplace injuries

Losing a limb is one of the most traumatic injuries that a worker can face. The loss of a limb has longstanding consequences for a worker and typically requires a worker to constantly adjust their daily routines to accommodate their disability. Fortunately, workers who suffer the loss of a limb do not have to face their medical expenses alone. A workers' compensation attorney can help individuals obtain the compensation that they deserve, which can help pay for the medical care associated with recovering after an amputation.

Dangerous chemical exposure for salon workers

Court says work-related lifting contributed to heart attack

One of the tasks that many employees of bars and restaurants are ordinarily required to perform is moving and switching out heavy kegs of beer.

At the end of a busy night an employee may have to move around numerous full kegs of beer, sometimes in cramped quarters.

Pennsylvania construction worker accident leaves one dead

Readers in Philadelphia know the severity of workplace accidents may differ sharply. Workers who are injured during the course of employment are nearly always entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits, regardless of fault. In the case of fatal accidents, the family of the deceased worker may be able to collect those benefits in order to cover any funeral and medical expenses, as well as make up for lost wages.
