Explosion victim may benefit from workers' compensation

One man is dead and another is in critical condition after an explosion at a Pennsylvania gas station. One of the store's co-owners suffered fatal injuries in the explosion while one employee survived, but was last listed in critical condition. Injuries of this magnitude usually require ongoing medical care, which can complicate the financial lives of victims who are already short on cash from missing work. In most cases, workers' compensation can address these issues.

Can I hold a property owner responsible for my personal injury?

Suffering an injury on another person's property can be a difficult and confusing experience. In many cases, Pennsylvania property owners will try to subvert their own negligence by placing the blame on victims, claiming that they were irresponsible or careless. It is easy for those struggling to recover from a personal injury to feel intimidated by such tactics.

Staying safe for the 2018 Roar on the Shore

Erie's proximity to one of the Great Lakes makes it a destination for people from all over Pennsylvania and beyond. Some people come to enjoy the beautiful beaches of Preque Isle State Park. Others enjoy the rides at Water World and Waldameer Park. There are plenty of other attractions and events that bring people to the area. One event that always brings in a lot of people is the annual Roar on the Shore.

My BAC was higher than .08 -- is that a drunk driving felony?

Allegations of driving under the influence are no small matter, particularly when they involve serious accusations. In Pennsylvania, drunk driving charges are filed as one of three levels. Drivers may be charged with General Impairment, High BAC or Highest BAC. Each has its own requirements for charges, and punishments vary between each.

You don't need a "big injury" to get workers' compensation

Workplace injuries are no laughing matter, and each year an untold number of employees in Pennsylvania are hurt on the job. Most people think that workers' compensation only applies to so-called "big injuries" that are the result of serious accidents. While this might be the prevailing belief, the reality is that men and women who suffer any type of work-related injury qualify for compensation.
