GETTING THE WAGE BENEFITS YOU'VE EARNED, WHATEVER IT TAKES.
In most cases, workers injured on the job in Pennsylvania are covered for medical treatment and disability payments under the Commonwealth’s workers’ compensation insurance system. Unfortunately, securing the medical treatment and wage benefits you’re entitled to often require substantial effort.
Our legal team can handle any and all liability claims including:
- Construction and industrial accidents
- ERISA claims
- Jones Act claims for Maritime workers
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Exposure to toxic or harmful material
We can assist you whether you are filing a workers’ compensation claim, had your initial claim denied, or are filing a lawsuit against your employer under ERISA.
You do not need to prove fault in a workers’ comp claim – even if you were negligent. However, you cannot receive pain and suffering benefits in a workers’ compensation claim.
In most cases, workers who successfully file for workers’ comp benefits forfeit their right to sue their employer for additional compensation except in cases of willful negligence.
However, injured workers have the right to seek full and fair compensation from any third parties found to be liable for causing the accident.
Third parties can include:
- Manufacturers of a defective tool
- Negligent property and business owners
- Employees or subcontractors working on the job site
