While in the workplace, we should feel safe and secure. There is a duty of care that should be upheld by employers to make certain that their employees are not exposed to any unnecessary danger while they are at work. However, mistakes are unfortunately all too common, especially for such construction workers or other jobs that involve high risk.
When a workplace fails to prevent danger and an employee is injured, the victim may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits as they make their recovery. This compensation can go toward covering medical expenses, as well as provide wages to the victim while they recuperate. However, it may not be as easy as you may think to secure these benefits after an injury in the workplace.
To ensure that you receive the proper amount of compensation, it is in your best interest to retain an attorney.
There is a very particular process that you must go through if you wish to gain workers' compensation benefits. Before taking any action whatsoever, please reach out to a Schuylkill County workers' compensation lawyer from Anthony Urban Law Offices, P.C.
