Taking Legal Action After You Suffer A Work Site Injury
Pennsylvania laws require employers to provide workers’ compensation benefits to employees who suffer job-related injuries. These benefits are payable without regard to who was at fault for the accident. Pennsylvania’s “no-fault” benefits system can streamline the filing process for hurt workers.
However, there are drawbacks:
- Benefits do not include compensation for pain and suffering, damages that can be included in a civil lawsuit settlement.
- Benefits do not always provide adequate financial support for all work-related injuries.
- Benefits may not cover lost wages for an indefinite period of time for severe injuries that prevent an employer from working in the future.
I am attorney Gregory Stapp. For over 20 years, I have helped injured workers obtain the full compensation they deserve. In some cases, that means filing a personal injury lawsuit when it is allowed under the law. In Pennsylvania, you generally can’t sue your employer for a work-related injury. However, if a third party caused your injury, you may be able to sue this party for damages beyond what workers’ compensation will pay.
