Workers’ Memorial Day marks the passage of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)

Workers’ Memorial Day, April 28, 2012, marked the passage of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) over four decades ago.  Ceremonies were held across the Commonwealth to honor the memory of workers who were killed or injured while at work.  From 2009 to 2010, workplace deaths rose in Pennsylvania from 168 to 219.  Nationwide, 3.1 million workplace injuries and illnesses were reported to private sector employers.  Much focus was placed on exposing recent attempts to roll back job safety protections by big business and conservatives in Congress.

If you have lost a family member as the result of a work-related injury, you may be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits.  Jerry Lehocky represented the son of an injured worker, who tragically passed away from the work injury due to surgical complications.  Mr. Lehocky filed a Fatal Claim Petition on the son’s behalf.  Through the course of the proceedings, Mr Lehocky secured a settlement in the amount of $250,000.00.
