Some states pursuing criminal charges for workplace deaths

Most employed people in Pennsylvania know that if they should ever become injured while at work, they may be able to apply for workers' compensation benefits to help them recover lost wages or provide for needed medical care. If a workplace accident results in a fatality, some family members may be available for death or survivor's benefits. When a death is linked to a safety violation on the part of the employer, fines may be levied and civil lawsuits might ensue.

Workplace injuries due to traffic accidents

There are many different hazards that workers encounter on a frequent basis. These risks may include dangers associated with certain types of machinery, exposure to toxic substances, falling off of a roof or ladder and so on. Moreover, a worker may be hurt while they are riding in a vehicle or as a pedestrian. Workplace traffic crashes can be devastating and are responsible for the loss of many workers’ lives. Moreover, these accidents frequently leave workers with devastating injuries that can be incredibly hard to deal with on a daily basis.

Qualifying for Social Security Disability

If you are suffering from an injury or ailment that prevents you from working, you may be eligible to receive benefits from the Social Security Disability program. While you may not feel thrilled about taking a monthly check from the government as opposed to working, you only qualify for the program if you have paid enough taxes into the Social Security system. You may think of the program as a government insurance policy that you’ve already paid the premiums for. In fact, the technical term for this program is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).
