Elevator Worker Injured at Penn State

An employee with Port Elevator was injured while working on an elevator at Beaver Stadium in Pennsylvania. A spokesperson for Penn State said that the worker was doing maintenance on an elevator inside the Stadium when he sustained an injury. He was transported to Mount Nittany Medical Center where he was treated for a fracture to his leg.

Missouri laws require employers with more than five employees to carry workers' compensation insurance. This type of insurance is considered a no-fault insurance, meaning that you do not have to prove that another individual caused your injury. Any injured employee is entitled to the benefits of the insurance, as long as they did not willingly cause the injury to themselves. Workers' compensation insurance replaces only 66.6% of the employee's average weekly wages. For this reason, it is imperative to enlist the assistance of an attorney that specializes in workers' compensation claims.
