Most people know where Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is. It is the fifth largest city in the United States with a population of approximately 1.5 million people. Bala Cynwyd is a lesser-known community in the greater metropolitan area, but it is famous for sharing a border with the city along one of the region’s most well-known thoroughfares, City Line Avenue.
Located in Montgomery County, Bala Cynwyd is located in Lower Merion Township with a population of 57,825. Yet it borders the western edge of Philadelphia with City Line Avenue as the boundary, home to numerous hotels and businesses, including several of the region’s television stations. Bala Cynwyd is also part of the Philadelphia Main Line, considered one of wealthiest suburban areas in the country. It sits off of the City Line Avenue exit of the Schuylkill Expressway leading in and out of the city.
There are endless amounts of opportunities when it comes to jobs and industry in the vicinity of Bala Cynwyd. One major employer in the township is Johnson and Johnson Pharmaceuticals. Many locals make the short commute to Philadelphia to work, the home of many Fortune 500 corporations. It is home to some of the finest hospitals and universities in the country. The sports complex in South Philadelphia is the home of three major sports arenas and four major league teams. The international airport is one of the major hubs in the country and construction cranes continually dot the city landscape and skyline.
Along with those many economic opportunities comes risk of injury. The commute to work on the regions’ many expressways and railways brings risk of accidents on public transportation or private vehicles. How can one provide family support if for some reason beyond their control that person is forced to miss valuable work time because of accidents of any variety?
