HURT AT WORK?Answer a couple questions and learn about your rights.
If you’re injured at work, know your rights.
You are entitled to compensation for your injury
The state of Pennsylvania has clear laws that protect workers that have been injured on the job. Our network of attorneys work hard to get you every dollar you deserve.
You should be aware that workers' compensation litigation is complex, and your employer or your employer’s insurance carrier will be represented by an experienced attorney. While you may represent yourself in these proceedings, a non-attorney cannot represent you. To obtain the best possible result for a claim, an attorney is strongly recommended.
Your claim is not against your employer, it is against the insurance carrier
Many injured workers are reluctant to file a claim despite an injury because they fear retaliation from their employer. Retaliation for a claim is not only illegal, but unwise because the claim is against the insurance carrier and not the employer.
Your employer has a duty to protect their workers when injuries occur
Employers are required to either have a Workers’ Compensation policy or the financial resources to fulfill their duty to protect workers who have been injured on the job.
Attorneys work on 100% contingency and do not require any payment up front or out of pocket costs
There is no cost to hire an attorney until the case has been settled and financial distributions have gone out.
