If you have ever stood beside a semi-truck and examined its structure, you will realize just how large they are. Because they are so big, they are also much heavier and more difficult to stop. Understanding how to drive safely and responsibly around a big truck can help protect you and your passengers and encourage other drivers to be observant as well. Whenever you notice a truck on the road in Pennsylvania, be vigilant and courteous in passing.
There was a slick patch on the floor in the Pennsylvania store where you were shopping, and you slipped and fell. As is common with slip-and-fall accidents, you hurt your wrist as you tried to break your fall, and you also hit your head on the floor. You needed emergency medical attention, and you missed a few days of work as you recovered. Should the store owner have to pay for the medical bills, pain and suffering, and your lost wages?
Even if your work-related injury is not life-threatening, it could still lead to medical expenses and quite a few days off from your job in Pennsylvania. Like many people, you may not have extra money to pay the costs and cover your lost wages without having to juggle your finances. At Douglas, Joseph & Olson Attorneys at Law, we often answer questions about what workers' options are after an on-the-job injury.
