Your outdoor job might not be all fun in the sun this summer

Pennsylvania workers who do their jobs outdoors will likely be happy to welcome the bright and sunny days of summertime. However, it's important to remember that, regardless of the season, working outdoors can pose many environmental hazards. Employers must comply with strict safety regulations prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Other drivers may not adjust for wintery weather, but you can

You may be among the many people here in Pennsylvania who thinks snowfall and snow on the ground is a beautiful sight, until you have to drive in it. Sometimes road crews can't clear the roads fast enough, or part of the leftover snow ices over, which makes driving hazardous. Even roads that are simply wet after crews plow them can create a potential hazard.

What dangers do you face as you enjoy a ride on your motorcycle?

Perhaps you bought a motorcycle so that you could ride the open road with friends, enjoy the wind in your hair and watch the beautiful Pennsylvania countryside go by as you ride, along with enjoying the freedom that comes with owning one. Even as you are aware of the joys that riding can bring you, you may also be keenly aware of the dangers.

Did a work-related accident leave you with brain injuries?

Suffering from a severe injury can result in your facing many difficulties. In some cases, the injuries are not permanent, and after recovery, individuals can go back to living their lives as they did before. However, you may not have been so lucky. If you suffered a traumatic brain injury while on the job, you may know that your life will never be the same.

Are distracted doctors a menace to patient safety?

Although it seems to be more and more acceptable for cashiers and retail workers to be on their cell phones on the job, you may be among those who still feel it is inappropriate or rude, especially if you are at the counter trying to get a texting worker's attention. On the other hand, you may feel it's perfectly fine for people to text or scroll through Facebook on their phones while on the clock, as long as they aren't bus drivers or truckers.

Make no bones about it, a compound fracture is serious

Pennsylvania motorcycle riders know that they risk their lives every time they get out on the road. Like them, you assume that risk because you enjoy the ride (and perhaps the fuel economy). Yet, you know that in an accident, your body does not receive the same protections as those in other passenger or commercial vehicles.

Were you a victim of a car vs. buggy crash in Amish country?

In certain rural areas of Pennsylvania, tight-knit communities of descendants of 18th-century immigrants continue to practice the Amish religion. They shun most modern technologies and live their lives without electric devices, automobiles and more. They travel on unadorned, black horse-drawn buggies. If you are a member of an Amish community, you will know that close encounters between buggy riders and other vehicles are not uncommon.

When sepsis takes over your life

Each year, complications from medical procedures cause injury and death to millions of patients. In many cases, these complications were preventable if medical professionals had provided an appropriate standard of care.

The factors that make low-speed collisions high-risk incidents

Car accidents can vary in the type and severity of the injuries and damage they cause. No matter the type or cause of a car crash, any time a person suffers an injury it is a serious situation. Even a low-speed accident can cause significant damage, leaving innocent victims in pain and dealing with other serious consequences. 

Surgical nurses can face medical malpractice claims too

When you go to a Pennsylvania hospital for a surgical procedure, more than just the surgeon is in the operating suite. An anesthesiologist, surgical technicians and nurses more than likely assist with the procedure. Each member of the team has a specific role to play in your surgery. If even one person fails to perform a task properly, you could end up with serious or permanent injuries.
