Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Suffering an injury at work can be devastating to a worker’s family. Being disabled from work and not receiving any pay or medical treatment because an employer or insurance company denies workers’ compensation benefits can be a traumatic experience. After many work injuries, employers and their insurance companies will deny an injured worker workers’ compensation benefits and wait and see if the injured worker will hire an experienced Pennsylvania workers’ compensation attorney to fight back.
In Pennsylvania, if you are injured while working, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. In most cases, you will be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits regardless of who is at fault for the accident. For example, if you drop a box on your foot an injure yourself while working, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation pays an injured workers medical bills and lost wages if the injured worker becomes disabled from work.
In most cases, employers pay injured workers benefits for a short period of time following a work injury but file petitions shortly after to limit or terminate the injured worker’s medical and wage loss benefits.
Many times, workers suffer work injuries caused by negligent third parties. Common examples of these types of accidents are car accidents, slipping/tripping and falling while at work, injury caused by a negligent contractor on a work site, faulty product and dog attack while making a delivery.
