Harrisburg’s Forklift Accident Injury Lawyer
Forklift accidents often result in devastating injuries. While Pennsylvania workers’ compensation is designed to help those who are injured on the job, you may need the assistance of an experienced lawyer if you have suffered a serious injury.
At Marzzacco Niven & Associates, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, we’re raising a voice and representing workers who are injured in all types of workplace accidents. Founding attorney Katherine L. Niven served as chief counsel for the Pennsylvania Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and was a Pennsylvania workers’ compensation judge. Our workers’ compensation practice is led by Jesse Rhodeside and Adam Crosier, who has been certified as a specialist in workers’ compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association.
Worker’s Compensation: When A Forklift Injury Happens At Work
Anytime you suffer a serious workplace injury, you should consult with an attorney as soon as possible. While employers are often quick to respond with sympathy and support following an accident, their attitude may change if you are unable to work for an extended period of time. Your employer may start to view you as an expense and look for a way to discontinue your benefits. If you are not aware of the rules, you could lose your benefits and your job.
Our lawyers look out for the interests of injured workers and their families. We charge no fees unless we are successful. We then ask for the judge to approve our fee, which is 20% in ongoing cases or 18% for settlements. We will pay the costs of medical records and depositions.
In some cases, you may be entitled to compensation in addition to workers’ compensation. For example, you may have a claim for defective equipment against the forklift manufacturer. If you suffered a permanent disability, we can help you qualify for Social Security Disability.
