Workers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, do their best in their respective jobs for the benefit of their families. Whether you are working in a fast food chain, at a construction site or in an office, your primary motivation is your family. However, doing your work properly and productively does not ensure your safety from a workplace injury.

When it comes to workplace safety, contractors in Pennsylvania are no different from employers of companies anywhere in the country.

They are mandated by state agencies and law, and often by insurance companies, to identify and address on-the-job hazards that can cause workplace accidents.

Construction accident injury results in a huge payout

Heavy equipment, tools and elevated places are not the only hazards present on a construction site.

Pennsylvania workers, especially those who work in high-risk industries such as construction, understand that almost all jobs pose various workplace hazards that can cause accidents. Each state has its own workers' compensation laws that allow employees who have suffered injuries on the job to file claims to compensate for their losses.

Diseases caused by years of exposure to harmful chemicals in the workplace can also be compensated under a claim.

Most workers who operate machinery or work with hazardous equipment or materials know that a workplace accident can happen at almost any time. For that reason, most workers and employers in Pennsylvania keep safety as their number one concern every day on the job. Still, work-related accidents happen even in the safest industries. When they do, an injured worker is legally entitled to file a workers' compensation claim to obtain benefits to cover medical expenses and lost wages.

No Pennsylvania Workers' Comp Act for latent occupational illness

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court recently issued an important ruling for people who develop illnesses caused by something in their workplace environments. Some diseases aren’t immediately apparent but take years or even decades to manifest.
