Putting Our Personal Injury Skills To Use For Your Workers' Comp Claim

Our law firm has successfully helped countless workers throughout western Pennsylvania recover workers' compensation for a wide variety of workplace injuries. Ranging from amputations and serious brain and back injuries to repetitive motion injuries, our lawyers can ensure that your employer respects your legal rights.

We will help you seek the proper medical treatment from an independent doctor and document all of your treatment and the extent of your injuries. An attorney will then help you navigate the claims process and represent you in any dealings with your employer's insurance company.

An Ability To Handle Your Claim And Pursue Additional Damages When Possible

If you are hurt at work due to someone else's negligence from outside your work, our law firm is well-equipped to handle your "third-party" personal injury litigation. Some examples of work-related injuries where an outside party is responsible include:

  • Injuries caused by employees of other contractors on the construction site
  • Getting into a car accident while driving a company vehicle
  • Being attacked by a dog or suffering from a slip-and-fall accident on someone's property while making a delivery
  • Being hurt by a poorly manufactured power tool or other equipment at work

In order to pursue a third-party claim and workers' compensation benefits, you will need lawyers who understand how each claim will affect the other. We can build a case that puts you in the best position to maximize your recovery from one or both claims.
