Work Injury Car Accidents
In Pennsylvania, if a worker gets in a car accident as a result of a work-related errand or trip, they may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
Car accidents can occur in difficult weather conditions and are common on business trips and errands. Furthermore, an injury that occurs when an employee is required to travel outside of their normal work route (for example, to attend a conference) is most likely covered by Pennsylvania workers’ compensation benefits.
Work Injury Equipment Accidents
On-the-job injuries caused by equipment, whether it be faulty, broken or not, are covered by Pennsylvania workers’ compensation benefits as well.
On the job site, it is important that all equipment is regularly inspected and kept in safe, working condition. Often, workers that receive injuries as a result of faulty equipment work in the construction, mining, hydrofracking, landscaping, or maintenance industry.
It is the responsibility of your employer to provide you with safe, reliable tools to use.
