According to Outforia, Pennsylvania ranks #8 in states where most people are killed by wild animals, using data from the 20-year period from 1999 to 2019. The data doesn’t include bee stings, getting mauled by a dog, or the number of deadly car crashes caused by hitting a deer.

While this is simply human nature, it is still important for employers to ensure the safety of all of their workers, especially when they are working in a dangerous construction site.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (“IIHS-HLDI”) states fairly bluntly that “[a] bigger, heavier vehicle provides better crash protection than a smaller, lighter one, assuming no other factors are involved.

A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is an injury that affects how the brain works. It may be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or a penetrating injury, such as a gunshot to the head. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are three main types of TBI:
The laws, rules, and regulations that govern our lives can be difficult to comprehend, let alone understand. Statutes, whether they’re on the municipal, state, or federal level, are typically drafted in complicated language, full of legalese and often incorporating and referring to numerous other code sections — some of which are nearly impossible to find, and are equally as vague. And unless you have a law degree, trying to understand certain case opinions is a tall order.
