Suffering an on-the-job injury can be quite a challenge for workers in Pennsylvania to overcome, in many different ways. First, injured workers are usually worried about their health and what it will take to make a full physical recovery. Next, injured workers are worried about their income and how they will make ends meet if they are unable to work due to their workplace injury. And third, injured workers are typically also worried about what the workplace injury will mean for their ongoing job security with their employers. These are all, no doubt, valid concerns. Fortunately, there is a system in Pennsylvania that is designed to help employees who suffer on-the-job injuries: workers’ compensation.
At our law firm, we know that injured workers oftentimes have more questions than answers. Most people know, in general, how workers’ compensation is supposed to help them, but they are unaware of the exact details of the program. That is where our law firm could probably step in to help.
Many of our clients have questions about the following: how much of their wages they will receive while injured; whether or not they can see their own doctor; who will pay their medical bills; and, in some cases, whether or not a personal injury lawsuit may have merit. These questions, among many others, can be answered in general, but your unique situation may have nuances that need to be discussed.
