Football and its connection to brain injuries

While the majority of the media's focus has been on brain injuries for professional football players, a growing body of research indicates that the majority of brain injuries related to football occur in middle and high school. A recent study by the Brain Injury Research Institute found that 20 percent of U.S. high school football players have suffered a brain injury at some point during the season. These are extraordinarily high numbers.

Pain and its connection to brain injuries

Motor vehicle accidents: yes, it's dangerous out there

We all know that one hand on the wheel and the other wrapped around a smartphone does not spell a good combination when it comes to roadway safety in Pennsylvania, Ohio or anywhere else across the country.

It fact, it is a prescription for disaster, with reams of empirical data existing to underscore just how adverse -- and, often, fatal -- the results are when a motorist does not fully fix his or her attention on road-related details while moving along a street or highway.

Governor Tom Wolf to sign Daniel's Law at the Scott Township Volunteer Fire Department tomorrow

We are very excited to announce that Governor Tom Wolf will sign Daniel's Law (HB 853) at the Scott Township Volunteer Fire Department in New Castle tomorrow at 1:30 pm. 

What kind of workers’ compensation benefits are there?

When people hear about workers’ compensation, they may have a general idea as to what it is and why someone would receive it, but it’s very possible that they do not know that there are several types of workers’ compensation benefits that are provided under law.

The one that most people likely know about is when someone gets payment for lost wages. If the work injury has caused you to lose the wages you had prior to the injury, these wage-loss benefits can be extremely important to your livelihood.
