Inmate sues detention center for alleged medical malpractice

Every citizen has the right to proper medical treatment, even those who are inmates at a detention center.

An inmate alleges medical malpractice and civil-rights violations.

Father of 7 children struggling after absence due to work injury

Certain workers in Pennsylvania who have to face the potential dangers posed by their various occupations sometimes live in constant fear of suffering injuries that may leave their families vulnerable.

A worker who suffered severe workplace injuries in May is experiencing extreme anxiety about his inability to provide for his family.

Guilty party in serious car accident may face deportation

A Pennsylvania man, originally from another country, recently pleaded guilty to DUI-related charges that could severely affect the remainder of his life.

It was reported that the man traveled in a lane that was closed off due to ongoing construction activities, where he knocked over one construction worker and narrowly missed another. He then smashed into a construction vehicle.

Sepsis death after surgery leads to medical malpractice lawsuit

It is not uncommon for Pennsylvania individuals who suffer conditions that require surgery to obtain a second opinion, and if surgery cannot be avoided, they may want to ensure that the surgeon is qualified and capable enough not to endanger a patient’s life. However, when surgery is an emergency procedure, the patient has no option but to trust the surgeon and his staff. A man from another state recently filed a medical malpractice lawsuit against two doctors and a few medical institutions following the death of his wife in 2008.

Dangerous gas causes fatal work injury to 2 unprotected workers

Pennsylvania workers in various industries may be interested in the tragic deaths of two workers in another state.

In order to prevent the occurrence of a work injury, business owners are responsible for the safety of all workers on their premises, not only by supplying protective gear, but also by providing safety training and safe work environments.
