Lawsuit against contractor for negligence filed in district court

Pennsylvania workers who are injured on the job due to negligence may wonder if they can file suit while being covered under workers' compensation. The answer depends on whether the injury was caused by employer or third-party negligence.

Cause listed in worker's death

A Pennsylvania state report has released the cause of an explosion that resulted in a man's death at a gas well in February; the report claims that the 27-year-old worker was not properly supervised. The employee was investigating a hissing noise when the well exploded.

Increased speed limits increase highway workers' worries

Among the many highway construction workers across the United States, those that work in Pennsylvania are concerned over the increases in work zone speed limits by Penndot set to take place in August 2014. According to a recent report, the speed limit in many work zone areas will be raised to 55 and 70 miles per hour outside of work zones. The change puts many roadway workers feeling unsafe in an environment that is already high risk.
