What to Do After a Work Injury
The most important step to take after a work accident is to seek immediate medical attention if necessary. Only once your health and safety are secured should you inform your employer of the accident.
In writing, inform your employer of the following as soon as possible:
- When and where the accident occurred
- How it happened
- What injuries you sustained
- How the injuries may affect your ability to work
Provide as much detail as possible and keep copies of all related correspondence with your employer. The more evidence you have to back up your claim, the better.
Your employer will then provide you with any documentation and other information you need to file your workers’ compensation claim. If you suspect your employer may deny your claim, you’d like assistance filing it, or you would like to learn more about your rights as an injured employee in Pennsylvania, reach out to our firm right away. The Law Offices of Anthony Urban, P.C. offers free consultations to all prospective clients with no obligation.
Workers' Compensation & Third-Party Claims
If you are injured in an accident at work, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits, regardless of who was at fault for your injury. In the case that you were injured by a negligent third party, you may also be able to seek compensation through a third-party personal injury suit.
The Schuylkill County injury lawyer and team at our firm have the skills and the resources to help you with workers' compensation issues and third-party claims. We can advise you on your options and explore every avenue to secure the compensation you deserve for your work injury, including medical expenses and lost wages.
Workplace Accident Lawyer in Schuylkill County
Injured workers are protected by the law, even if they were at fault for their own accident. If your employer threatens retaliation if you submit a workers’ comp claim, they have broken the law. However, though the law is on your side in these matters, it can still be difficult to navigate the workplace accident claims process on your own. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our firm if you are seeking legal advice, representation, or both. We are available 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
