Route 255 cross-over auto accident claims 3 lives

When Pennsylvania drivers cross over the center line into the lanes of traffic going in the opposite direction, it is never easy to determine why it happened, especially if the cross-over driver dies in the accident. While distractions are often the cause of such accidents, there is always a possibility of a medical condition suffered by the driver. Regardless, a cross-over auto accident typically requires thorough investigation to provide clarity.

Scaffold fall causes fatal work injury to construction worker

Falls from scaffolds are one of the leading causes of workplace injuries and even deaths. Employers who violate the strict safety regulations that are prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration put the lives of their workers on the line, creating conditions for a potential work injury. In addition to ensuring that all materials used to construct a scaffolding structure are of the required standard, workers must be provided with fall protection and trained to operate the protection equipment in the proper way.

When the negligence of medical professionals leads to life-altering consequences in patients, it is only natural for victims to be disillusioned about the efficiency of doctors and other medical staff. A hospital in another state is facing a medical malpractice lawsuit that was filed by a former patient who believes that the negligence of medical personnel ultimately led to an amputation.

The Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission recently affirmed a previous finding that a health management company's failure to protect one of its workers against violence resulted in her death.

Vehicle operators are not always considerate when they come across children traveling on the busy roadways, and collisions can have devastating consequences. A 12-year-old Pennsylvania boy landed in a hospital after suffering severe personal injury when he was struck by a passenger vehicle.
