Commercial construction workers face many risks on the job

As a commercial construction worker, you know that no two days at the job site are ever the same. Unfortunately, you also know that you face many risks on a regular basis. Even though you, your coworkers, and your employer can take many steps to lessen the likelihood of an accident, you never know what the future could bring.

Buyer beware: Used cars could have auto defects subject to recall

When Pennsylvania residents shop for a used car, they more than likely expect that a vehicle said to be "inspected" or "certified" will be safe. Unfortunately, that might not be the case. The Federal Trade Commission does not require used car dealers to make repairs to auto defects that are subject to recall. Consumers could drive off the lot with a vehicle that might seriously injure or kill them, their passengers or someone else on the road.

Smokeless tobacco recall could lead to products liability claims

Anti-tobacco advocates warn users of smokeless tobacco that it could be dangerous. Those advocates might be right after a unit of Altria -- U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company -- issued a recall for several of its products sold across the country, including here in Pennsylvania. It is not yet known whether users of the products connected with the recall will file any products liability claims.

Construction workers' accidents are a possibility in trench work

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration provides safety guidelines for nearly every possible hazard in nearly every industry. When it comes to construction workers' accidents here in Pennsylvania or elsewhere in the country, the number of things that could go wrong ranges from falls from heights to being crushed in a trench collapse. Certain safety measures are required for anyone working in a trench, where the risk of serious injuries or death is a daily possibility.

Identifying nursing home neglect

Many Pennsylvania residents have family members who are no longer able to care for themselves. In such cases, relatives usually search for a nursing home that will provide their elderly loved ones with the care and compassion they need. However, many of these individuals are surprised when they discover that their loved one became a victim of nursing home neglect.
