Workers' Compensation Lawyers in Schuylkill County
Collecting Compensation From a Workplace Accident in PA
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 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.

After a work injury, you should follow these steps:

- Get medical care from the doctor that your employer suggests
- Research what types of benefits are available to you
Additional Reminders for Handling Injuries in the Workplace
- The earlier and more accurately you report your work injury to your employer, the better.
- By showing proof that you were injured and how right away, they are less likely to be able to deny your claim on the grounds that you don’t actually need compensation.
- The same goes for visiting the doctor—if you don’t show up for medical appointments or if you fail to follow your doctor’s orders, the validity of your claim may come into question.
