Many residents of Pennsylvania may believe that a medical malpractice lawsuit may be filed after any negative medical result.

Workers in Pennsylvania are likely aware of the potential dangers they face on a daily basis. They would naturally expect their employers to ensure safe surroundings and assess the work site for potential hazards that could cause personal injury.

However, if the injury is the result of negligence by a third-party, the injured worker may pursue a personal injury claim in a civil court.
