If you’ve been injured at work, you could be eligible for benefits. A Delaware County based workers compensation lawyer can help you determine if you can receive compensation.
Despite the laws that govern the safety of workplaces in Pennsylvania, many workplaces are unfortunately still unsafe for employees. It is becoming more common for employees to be injured at work and studies estimate that one out of every five workers will either be injured on the job or experience an occupational illness. This same study reports that injured employees are often prevented from working for up to a year following the illness or injury.
If you have been injured on the job, you have likely acquired significant medical bills. Depending on the type and severity of your injury, you may require long term medical care, surgery, medications, physical therapy and other forms of medical care. This can be costly and if you were injured at work while performing your job duties, through no fault of your own, we believe that you should not have to cover the costs of your own medical care.
