Picture this: It’s Saturday night and you are leaving your favorite local restaurant. You plan to Uber back home after meeting up with friends. You book a car, and within no time, your Uber is waiting for you. All seems well until your Uber driver starts to exhibit signs of reckless driving. He’s speeding, being aggressive toward other drivers, and leaving you feeling uneasy. Then it happens, you’re in a car accident. Not only do you have physical injuries, but emotional trauma as well.
With more Americans opting for rideshare transportation, it’s no wonder that we’re seeing services like Uber and Lyft accounting for a percentage of total traffic accidents and fatalities. In a 2018 study by the University of Chicago and Rice University, it was found that rideshare services such as Uber and Lyft actually make up a two to three percent increase in traffic fatalities since 2011.

Over the past few years, Pennsylvania has changed many of its laws pertaining to the use of child seats. In June 2016, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed legislation requiring all children under 2 years of age to ride in rear-facing child car seats in the back seat of the vehicle.

As the temperatures continue to arise throughout the United States, so does the increase in heat related illnesses among workers that work outside for a living. Heat stroke is a severe heat-related illness that can occur when the body’s temperature regulation fails and body temperature rises to critical levels. It’s a condition that can strike swiftly, leading to devastating health consequences. Workers, particularly those in high-heat environments, need to be aware of the risks and symptoms of heat stroke to protect their health and well-being.
Understanding workers’ compensation after suffering a heat stroke while on the job is important, especially for those in Pennsylvania. If you suffer from a heat illness while on the job, you may be entitled to benefits under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act.
