Workplace Injuries Archives

Opioid use after injury down but not in Pennsylvania

Workplace injuries range in severity from minor to life-threatening. The one thing that most injuries have in common however, is the use of prescribed narcotics for pain control during recovery. Occasionally and depending on severity, this treatment may last for weeks or months, and can lead to narcotic abuse. Fortunately, a new study shows that long-term opioid use has decreased significantly in several states.

Steps to prevent heat exhaustion for road crew

As summer presses on and the sun rises high in the sky, no place is quite as hot as standing on black pavement surrounded by hot running machinery. For road crews, the summer months are the busiest time of the year. Unfortunately, it is also the hottest, and can increase the risk of heat-related illness and injury.

Worker faces death and suggests better safety measures

Philadelphia locals and even those across the nation have likely heard of the botched holdup attempted by an ex-state trooper of a Fort Littleton toll booth resulting in the trooper's death and the death of two others. Two toll booth employees were counting the money in the early morning hours before dawn when a retired trooper who once patrolled the very toll booth drew a gun on the workers.

Answers to your questions about your workplace injury

When workers are hurt on job sites in Pennsylvania, they are often left with many unanswered questions. Fortunately, answers to those questions are available. If you have a question about your recent workplace injury or workers' compensation, you can get the answers you need from the experienced attorneys at the law firm of Jeffrey S. Gross.

Did you suffer an unexpected workplace injury in Pennsylvania?

Workplace accidents are all too common in Pennsylvania, thanks to our state's large industrial sector. However, not all workplace injuries occur in manufacturing and construction, some occur where least expected, such as in offices and schools. If you suffered a workplace injury, regardless of where it happened, the attorneys at the law firm of Jeffrey S. Gross can help you pursue the workers' compensation benefits you need.

Is my injury compensable under workers’ compensation?

Under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act, an employee can be compensated for work-related injuries. Workers’ compensation benefits help injured employees recover things like lost wages and medical bills. However, not all injuries are covered by workers’ compensation. Only work-related injuries are compensable under the Act. 

Pennsylvania court rules on workers’ comp impairment guidelines

Workers’ compensation laws vary from state-to-state. Each state’s government has the right to determine how much an injury is worth based upon local and regional factors ranging from the economy to prevalent industries in the area to costs of health care or even just the political climate. But even within one state, such as Pennsylvania, even when the same laws are applied over time, the value of an injury can change.

Opiate abuse on increase for workers’ compensation injuries

When you’ve been injured on the job, one of the first things you want is relief from any pain you are suffering. Once you see a medical professional, you may be prescribed painkillers of whatever strength he or she deems appropriate. In many cases where severe pain is associated with the injury, some form of opiate may be prescribed.

Study: Risk of injury increased with multiple jobs

Economists may say the recession is over, but many Pennsylvania workers are still feeling its effects. In fact, workers all across the nation are still recovering, and are working more than one job to do so. But doing so may increase the likelihood of a workplace injury.
