Obtain The Workers' Compensation You Are Entitled To Receive

Under the best circumstances, injuries at work are typically covered by your employer's workers' compensation insurance. In Pennsylvania, any business that has workers, full or part time, is required to meet their statutory workers' compensation obligations by either getting an insurance policy, or by being approved as a self-insurer.

Despite this law, if you suffer an injury while performing work-related duties, there is no guarantee that your employer will provide the fair compensation you need and deserve. The same is true if you suffer a reasonably preventable injury or trauma caused by unsafe working conditions. To protect your rights, you need a legal advocate on your side who can help ensure that you receive adequate compensation.
