Don’t Try to Handle Your Pennsylvania Workers’ Comp Issues Alone
If you were injured at work, things can get complicated when it comes time to file for workers’ compensation benefits in Pennsylvania. You may have already encountered or are dealing with one of these scenarios:
- A person or company other than a co-worker or your employer caused your injuries—or was partly responsible for the accident where you were hurt—and you’re not sure how to handle it legally.
- Your employer insisted that you visit a certain doctor and didn’t give you any other options beyond that one physician.
- You filed a workers’ compensation claim, but it was denied.
- You’re receiving workers’ compensation benefits, but you think you’re not getting everything you’re entitled to.
- You have received a notice saying that your benefits are being terminated early.
- The insurance company hired a doctor to examine you and that doctor says you are fully recovered.
- Your employer is not providing you with a job that complies with your work restrictions.
You cannot rely on your employer or the insurance company to explain your rights to you, and employers and insurance companies often fail to give complete and accurate information to injured workers. Think about it … the insurance company makes more money by paying you less than you fully deserve. The attorneys at Mednick, Mezyk & Kredo began their careers as defense lawyers, so they have a unique inside view of how insurance companies approach workers’ compensation cases. They know what to look out for and how to protect your rights.
Philadelphia Workers’ Comp Injuries
Some jobs are inherently more dangerous than others, but it doesn’t mean that only employees with more hazardous jobs can file for workers’ compensation. Whether you’re a construction worker with a broken leg, or a graphic designer with severe carpal tunnel syndrome—if you’re injured at work, you deserve to be compensated under the full extent of the law.
Injuries worthy of a workers’ comp claim in Pennsylvania include:
- Strains and sprains
- Bulging and herniated discs
- Repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome
- Occupational diseases, including exposure to chemicals
- Hearing loss
- Loss of sight
If a loved one died as a result of something that happened at work, you are entitled to file a workers’ compensation claim to get justice for their death.
