Workers’ compensation—sometimes referred to as workers’ comp— is a set of civil laws protecting both worker and employer in the event of workplace injuries. A workplace injury can arise from an accident at work or repetitive work conditions that cause sickness or disability. In Pennsylvania, workers’ compensation laws afford injured employees and their loved ones several types of benefits.
Year after year, falls, struck-by accidents, electrocutions, and caught-in or between accidents are leading contributors to construction worker deaths. That is why OSHA has dubbed these the “Fatal Four” types of construction accidents. OSHA officials estimate that eliminating these common hazards could save more than 600 American worker lives every year.
An injured worker or his dependent may be entitled to the following benefits:
- Weekly compensation to the injured worker
- Reasonable, necessary and related medical treatment
- Death benefits and burial expenses to a deceased worker’s dependents
Your employer and its insurance carrier have teams of lawyers to deny claims or minimize payments of workers’ compensation claims. Our workers’ compensation department will use its experience and litigation skills to protect your rights to benefits.
