Hahnemann Hospital nursing assistants involved in labor dispute

The Philadelphia medical community has been wrapped-up in a controversy over Hahnemann University Hospital's announcement that they are re-structuring their staffing needs. Their announcement comes in an effort to improve patient care, but has upset many of the employees affected by the move. Those employees receiving workers' compensation payments may be particularly impacted by this news.

When An Employer Tells An Injured Worker They Will Take Care Of Them

It is a scary time, when you get injured on the job. You worry about job security, paying your bills and your health. At KK&O, we have seen a number of employers tell their employees they will take care of their bills and continue to pay them if they don't report the claim. The problem is once the medical bills get too high, your employer acts like he/she has amnesia and the assistance that is offered ends. You, the injured worker, is hung out to dry. It is important to make an informed decision and this especially holds true with a work injury. Workers' Compensation Benefits are paid for by the insurance company for your employer, not your employer. If you injury is accepted then workers' compensation will pay for your wage loss and medical bills. You should always act in the best interest of yourself because your employer does not always act in the best interest of its employees.

Foundry worker suffers stroke as a result of his work

One metal foundry worker was successful in getting workers' compensation benefits for a stroke that left him partially paralyzed.

Pennsylvania dairy plant turns away OSHA inspectors

When we drink a glass of milk or eat cheese, we might think of the cows that produced the milk, but not the workers that made it possible for us to consume the dairy products. A recent Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) probe into worker safety at a Pennsylvania dairy processing plant was prevented by company officials, so now federal officials had to seek a warrant to conduct their investigation.

Pennsylvania man injured after lift topples

A construction worker was hard at work when his mechanical boom lift tipped over, leading to multiple injuries. Work was being done on a Philadelphia cathedral when the man fell 50 feet from the top of the boom lift. The Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is conducting an investigation into this construction worker's accident in order to determine if the worksite was unsafe for the injured man.
