Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Workplace Accidents | Unsafe Work Environments | Slips and Falls | Repetitive Stress Injuries | Dangerous or Defective Equipment
In Pennsylvania, as in all other states, in an attempt to balance the interests of worker safety and the economic importance of financially healthy businesses, the legislature enacted workers’ compensation laws to protect the rights of people hurt on the job. The laws establish specific monetary awards for specific types of injuries. Your employer can either purchase a policy of workers’ compensation insurance or be self-insured. When you suffer an injury in the workplace, you don’t have to file a lawsuit in court, but can directly seek benefits through the workers’ compensation process.
Nonetheless, successfully obtaining workers’ compensation benefits can be challenging. In fact, many legitimate claims are initially rejected. You want an experienced lawyer to guide you through the process. Kusturiss Law can help.
