There are many different types of workplace accidents in Pennsylvania. All of them demand medical treatment. Some even require surgery. And in many cases, some injury victims need long-term care or physical therapy.
Making sure you or a loved one receives such medical attention after your injury can be challenging. That’s because many employers and insurance companies do everything they can to downplay the severity of many common work injuries due to the often high cost for care and treatment.

How Our Law Firm Can Help You
You might think you don’t need a lawyer if you sustained a serious injury on the job. All you have to do is tell your employer you got hurt at work and they will make sure you receive the medical care and support you deserve.
Don’t be so sure. Many employers and their insurance providers challenge work-related injuries. They might try to claim they you didn’t sustain your injury at work. Or they might downplay the severity of your injury and push you to return to work right away – even though you know you’re clearly injured and need more time to recover.
As your attorney, we can speak for you with your employer and their insurance provider. We can demand a second medical opinion. And if your injury prevents you from returning to work long term or you can no longer do your job, we can advocate for long-term disability benefits or job retraining if necessary. We’re here for you every step of the way. Contact us and schedule your free case consultation.
