Mount Carmel Workers' Compensation Lawyers

Urban Law Offices in Mt. Carmel, PA, is your trusted partner in navigating the complexities of workers' compensation law. If you've been injured on the job, it's crucial to understand your rights and take action promptly to secure legal representation. Our experienced legal team is here to provide you with the guidance and representation you need to secure the compensation you deserve.  

Injured workers need to seek legal advice early on to navigate the process of securing both medical benefits and wage loss (indemnity) benefits.  Workers need to be informed that while medical benefits may be payable immediately, that only about two-thirds of the salary are redeemable but only after a week off work.  Workers sustain injuries on the job site like a plant or warehouse such as from forklift injury or lifting injury, or away from main office such as on a construction site or drilling well pad, or on the roadways from a vehicle or truck accident.  Seasonal and part-time employees who are injured while working are also entitled to benefits.  Death benefits are available to a spouse or child, should a worker be killed on the job, and specific loss amounts are due for a loss of use of a limb such as arm, leg, foot. hand, or even a finger or part of a finger, as well as loss of eye or vision. 

Types of Workers' Compensation Injuries:

  • Traumatic Injuries: These include injuries sustained from accidents such as falls, equipment malfunctions, and workplace collisions.
  • Repetitive Strain Injuries: Resulting from repetitive motions or overexertion, these injuries can affect muscles, tendons, and joints, leading to conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis.
  • Occupational Illnesses: Exposure to harmful substances or conditions in the workplace can cause illnesses such as respiratory problems, dermatitis, and certain cancers.
  • Mental Health Injuries: Work-related stress, harassment, or traumatic events can lead to psychological conditions such as anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
  • Permanent Disabilities: Severe injuries may result in permanent disabilities, impairing your ability to work and impacting your quality of life.
