Helping workers file compensation claims in Pennsylvania

According to Pennsylvania law, any worker injured on the job is entitled to workers' compensation. The process of obtaining these benefits is often quite complicated, and can be confusing for an injured worker who is struggling to address pain from the injury.

Pennsylvania safety standards can reduce workplace accidents

Pennsylvania slip and fall incidences constitute a major portion of workplace accidents. For example, an employee can fall when he or she is simply walking or climbing a ladder to fix a light. A workplace accident could also take place after a chain reaction of events that ends with a worker suffering serious injury by falling from a considerable height to the ground.

Some people may not be aware of the perils of construction work in Pennsylvania and across the United States. In fact, construction is often considered to be one of the most dangerous jobs of all. Because of the dangers of construction work, various federal and state agencies have been spreading awareness about construction safety. After all, construction, despite its dangers, is an integral part of infrastructure development. However, despite safety measures, lapses occur and, sometimes, there is a report of a construction accident.

Getting benefits after a workplace injury

Pennsylvania residents probably know that a worker who suffers injuries resulting from a workplace accident has certain legal rights. These include getting the reasonable and required medical treatment for their workplace injury, having the choice of doctor after 90 days of treatment, having the choice of surgeon if surgery is needed within the first 90 days of treatment and the right to receive workers' compensation claim in a timely manner.
