Wage loss payments for Pennsylvania workplace injuries

The Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act (the Act) assists all injured workers in the workplace to seek compensation from their employers. In some cases though, the worker might suffer from a temporary disability, and the doctor who the injured worker sees states that the worker can return to work after recovering. But, the worker is unable to return to the old position due to the partial disability. In that case, the worker is entitled to wage loss benefits under the Act.

Pennsylvanian construction workers' safety

It is a well-established fact throughout Pennsylvania that construction workers are very vulnerable to workplace accidents. Construction workers often work in accident-prone areas, like highways and roads, while maintaining and rebuilding the basic infrastructure of the state.

Pennsylvania trying to ensure construction workers' safety

As many Pennsylvanians know, every year, construction workers are injured while doing their jobs repairing, maintaining and building the state's roads and highways. One basic problem is that motor vehicle drivers often speed in these areas, despite posted speed restrictions, warnings about fines and notices that workers are in the area. To address this perennial problem, state legislators work closely with law enforcement officials to find ways to hold drivers responsible for their traffic violations.
