Answer a couple questions and learn about your rights.

When the unthinkable happens, you need the best representation in your corner. You need a team of dedicated attorneys to work for you. You need InjuredWorkers.com.

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.

Loss of Wages Petition

Compensation based on missed work or the inability to continue to work because of full or partial disability

Lump Sum Settlement

Offers may come from the insurance carrier that could settle your case with with a lump sum payment. It’s important to consult with a qualified attorney to understand your options before accepting any offer. Many times, the offer will be a small percentage of what you actually deserve

3What are some common issues the attorneys see related to work injury claims?
  • Doctors who send injured workers back to work before they are physically ready
  • Insurance companies randomly holding up temporary benefits checks
  • Doctors refusing to provide necessary treatment because their loyalty lies with the insurance company who is paying them
  • FEAR – Injured workers afraid of pursuing a claim, getting reinjured and then having their claim denied; this can leave them with huge medical bills and also force them out of their jobs

  • review rating 5  My Attorney was Jeffery not only did he listen he reacted. Jeffrey believed in me and that men also get abused either verbally and or physically. I’m going through a divorce with a terrible women. She attempted to make several false allegations against me including to try and get a restraining order against me because I wanted to end the marriage. He beat her at her own game and she decided to dismiss her actions. Thank you Jeff for believing in men and protecting us with our rights. Any guy out there in the same position please call Malamut and associates. Attorneys who listen care and get emotionally involved when they know there client is innocent. They fight the fight and don’t give up.

  • review rating 5  Malamut & Associates, and more specifically, Annmarie Jensen, has been a shining light in the darkest time of my life. I filed for a divorce while I was 5 months pregnant so that I could separate myself from an emotionally abusive alcoholic husband. Her knowledge base was so thorough, and her concern for my well being was so deep, that every question I had was answered and every possible scenario was described in detail so that I knew exactly what was going on. The efficiency with which Annmarie handled my divorce was exceptional. She was productive, trustworthy, and showed that she truly cared about my situation every single time we communicated. There were many nights that Annmarie took the time, after normal working hours might I add, to call and relieve my anxiety about something that occurred that day. My son and I are both happy, healthy and in a better environment now. I attribute this to Annmarie’s exceptional work ethic. Due to my excellent experience with Annmarie, I would highly recommend Malamut & Associates to anyone for any reason. They know the law, but they also take into consideration the emotional situations that required you to seek out a lawyer in the first place.
