2 Pennsylvanians injured in roof collapse

Two Pennsylvania workers suffered injuries in an accident in Cambrian County. The construction accident occurred at a Hampton Inn in Richland Township on Wednesday, March 26 at around 10:30 a.m. as the two men were trying to repair a carport ceiling that had been damaged by seasonal weather.

Teenagers might say one thing about drunk driving but do another

Pennsylvanians know that the campaign against drunk driving has been successful. Compared with a few decades ago, the incidences of drinking and driving -- particularly those that lead to a car accident -- are down considerably from where they once were. However, until those figures are down to zero, there will be work that needs to be done.

Proposed regulation aims to cut down on drowsy driving

Readers of our Pennsylvania personal injury blog know that drowsy driving has become a real problem on our streets and highways. People who get behind the wheel when they are tired are doing everyone a disservice. Being sleepy while driving can have effects similar to drinking and driving: slowed reaction times, irregular movements and a higher likelihood for accidents.

Pennsylvania foundry fined for repeat safety violations

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued citations to Domestic Casting Co. LLC for 26 safety violations at its foundry in Shippensburg. The citations follow a complaint and subsequent inspection of the facility in August 2013, at which time the inspector found violations similar to some that the company was cited for in 2011 and earlier in 2013. The proposed penalties for the violations total $163,240.

Bad pothole season boosts risks for motorcycle accidents

As it is, Pennsylvania motorcycle riders are often at a disadvantage on the road compared to other motorists. Drivers may not always see someone on a motorcycle, even in the best of conditions. And when conditions are worse than normal, that problem can intensify.

Flash fire severely burns Pennsylvania worker

A flash fire at an east Erie industrial plant burned a maintenance worker on the afternoon of March 4. Emergency personnel transported the worker to a local medical center for treatment. He was later transferred to a Pittsburgh hospital burn unit where he has been listed in critical condition.

SSA proposal could make legal consultation more important

We have written from time to time on our Pennsylvania personal injury blog about how it can be important to have solid legal advice when it comes to applying for Social Security disability insurance benefits. This might become even more important if a proposal regarding requirements for Social Security disability applicants is adopted.

Snowplow fatally strikes elderly man crossing the street

Winter driving in Pennsylvania is dangerous. Roads can be slippery and more narrow than usual; drivers might clean off their windows insufficiently, impairing their vision. Additionally, fewer hours of daylight mean that drives that might otherwise be undertaken in the daytime are done at night, when visibility is worse.

Kennedy uses DUI experience to send controversial message

Though some people think of a "Kennedy" as someone who has it all, members of the Kennedy family have had their share of tragedy in the past. Former President Kennedy's niece Kerry Kennedy's recent run-in with the law is not at the tragic level of an assassination, but her impaired driving arrest certainly wasn't a glamorous moment.

Families workers killed by explosion to receive compensation

When a residential water heater used in lieu of a commercial boiler exploded in a plastics factory in 2009, two people were killed. The former manager of the Solus Industrial Innovations plant and the maintenance supervisor for the facility were charged with felonies related to the workplace accident.
