How to pay bills if you’re out of work after an injury

Even if you work in a relatively safe industry, you could still suffer an injury at some point that keeps you away from your job. If this happens, you're left with a lot on your plate. In addition to your treatment, you must find a way to stay on top of all your bills.

A workplace injury can result in a variety of medical bills. Along with this, if you're unable to work, you may not have enough money to pay other bills, such as your mortgage and car payment.

When you're injured while working in another state

Workers come to Pennsylvania and Williamsport each season to work on the oil fields. It's honest work for good money, plus it means getting out and seeing a little bit more of the world. Being an oil field worker is dangerous though, and accidents happen every day.

What can you do when you're injured on the job but live out of state? Does workers' comp apply if you don't live in the state you're injured in? Do you need a lawyer? Do they need to be from your state or Pennsylvania? Relax, you can draw workers' compensation with some help from a local attorney.

Hospital workers must be provided a safe work environment

Hospital workers should be some of the safest workers because of the settings in which they work. When you see the results of accidents on a daily basis, it seems as though you would want to take steps to be as safe as possible. Unfortunately, the powers-that-be at hospitals don't always prioritize safety.

There are some very specific hazards that these workers might face. It is imperative that all hospitals take the precautions necessary to prevent nurses, custodians and other workers from becoming injured during their shifts.
