Assisting those who have suffered a workplace injury

Each day, hard-working employees are injured in workplace accidents. While workplace accidents can't always be prevented, some never should have occurred or were caused by the negligence of another. In Erie, Pennsylvania, and across the United States, those who have suffered an injury in the workplace because of negligent behavior should carefully evaluate all options on the table and may want to consider legal action. At Friday & Cox LLC, our law firm is committed to supporting people who are facing these challenges firsthand.

Providing support to injured construction workers

Whether someone drives a semi truck or works in an office, there are a number of dangers present in the workplace. However, construction workers often find themselves in particularly risky situations and face a wide variety of risks on the job, such as falling off of a roof or ladder, an accident involving machinery and falling objects, to name a few. At Friday & Cox LLC, we work hard to support construction workers who were hurt in a construction site accident in Erie, and other parts of Pennsylvania.

Common scaffolding hazards in construction

Thousands of construction workers are injured every year in Pennsylvania and across the country. A large number of accidents causing debilitating or fatal injuries are from falls, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There are many ways to slip or trip and fall on the job, but scaffolding accidents are among the most prevalent in the construction industry.

Garbage truck worker killed in backup accident

As numerous posts in this blog have pointed out, there are some jobs that are inherently more dangerous than others. Construction and industrial work are near the top of the list, but so are drivers for particular professions. Commercial drivers who navigate busy city streets in Pennsylvania are no exception. Workers’ compensation law under the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry is meant to provide benefits for those injured in workplace accidents, but the law may also compensate the families of victims who were killed on the job. The purpose of death benefits is to aid those who are impacted by the loss of a deceased family member’s income.
