WORK PLACE INJURIES



Before the enactment of the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act, employees had to sue their employers and prove negligence before receiving any benefits for work related injuries. Under that system, the employee, during the pendency of a lawsuit, had no means of income and no insurance coverage for medical expenses. This often left the worker's family with no income.
 
The Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act corrected that fundamental inequity by requiring employers to maintain workers compensation insurance covering their employees. The Act provides liberal benefits to workers upon proof that injury occurred in the course of employment and that the injury resulted in disability.
 
Over the years the firm has handled a large variety and volume of workers' compensation cases, successfully protecting the rights of our clients and their financial security. Recent legislative amendments to the Act have made this a highly technical and complex area of the law.
 
Even workers already receiving benefits, without challenge, are encouraged to consult with us so we can educate them on the Workers' Compensation process and ease their anxiety by responding to their questions.

If you or a family member has suffered an injury, you may be entitled to compensation which may include:
  • Physical Pain & Suffering
  • Medical Bills
  • Loss of Income
  • Mental Anguish and Sorrow
  • Disfigurement
  • Marital/Family Problems
  • Property Damage
  • Punitive Damages
