Danville, workers’ compensation/personal injury
Danville, Pennsylvania, is the county seat of Montour County. The nickname of the Danville Area High School sports team is the “Ironmen,” which fits the city's working class reputation. With a population of 4,897 people, Danville is the home to many educational, health and social services, manufacturing, and retail trade as well. Although Montour County is one of the smallest in the state in size, it is well known primarily because of Geisinger Medical Center, one of the biggest employers in the area and one of the most important tertiary referral centers in northern Pennsylvania. The town lies just south off of Exit 224 on Interstate 80, and is also home to the Danville State Hospital for the mentally handicapped. Danville residents commute to nearby communities such as Bloomsburg and Lewisburg, the locations of Bloomsburg and Bucknell Universities.
The community was originally a transportation center served by several railroads and water navigation via the Susquehanna River. It was the site used to distribute the products by many steel mills. It also neighbors the lower anthracite coal region and many operating mines. Construction projects are an ongoing activity in Danville and the surrounding area. Unfortunately, accidents can happen with such vibrant activity. Geisinger knows this all too well as it employs an emergency helicopter crew that life-flights accident victims to the medical center on a daily basis. Workers and employees are constantly at risk of suffering injury or falling ill while performing their everyday duties.
