Why Speak With Our Carlisle, PA Workers’ Compensation Attorneys?

Obviously, when you’ve been injured on the job, getting medical treatment is your first concern. Not only do you want to make sure your condition doesn’t get worse, but you will need appropriate documentation to serve as the basis for your disability claim. The more complete your paper trail, the easier it is to construct a solid workers’ compensation claim.

For example...

  • If possible, photograph your injuries, as well as the scene of the accident itself and any equipment involved.
  • Keep copies of all correspondence with your employer, and with all insurance companies.
  • File away receipts for all expenses, including out-of-pocket costs, and keep notes on the progress of treatment.

Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Rights

As a worker in PA, you are protected by a body of compensation laws established specifically to compensate employees who are injured or disabled due to accidents in the workplace. The benefits were created to defray medical costs and to fill cost of living gaps. You have a legal right to claim these benefits and the attorneys at our Pennsylvania law firm are prepared to help you do that.

Put Our Workers’ Compensation Experience to Work for You

Filing a workers’ compensation claim is an involved business with many details that can be easily overlooked if you are unfamiliar with the process. Any complication in the filing process will delay the collection of benefits. It is also possible that your employer may have asked you to seek an independent medical evaluation or to meet with a vocational counselor. Maybe you’re being watched to determine if you really are physically impaired, or if the nature of your injuries actually constitutes a disability. What are your rights in these situations and what is your best course of action? The workers’ compensation attorneys at our firm have those answers.

At Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLC, our Carlisle workers’ compensation attorneys believe in the concept of workers’ compensation. The laws are fair, they exist for a reason, and we want to see you get the benefits that are yours to claim. Our legal consultations are offered at no charge to you and we have a no fee guarantee.

Most Common Work Injuries in the United States

According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), over 2 million workers get hurt by their jobs every year. Some work injuries are more severe than others, but regardless of the severity, employers are responsible for compensating workers who have been hurt by unsafe environments, poorly-trained workers, or even no-fault accidents.

The most common types of injuries caused on the job include:

  • Abrasion
  • Acoustic trauma
  • Back injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Cuts
  • Electrocution
  • Loss of limb
  • Loss of vision
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Sprains

What Causes Injuries at Work?

Work injuries occur for a variety of reasons, but one of the most common reasons is employer negligence. When employers fail to provide workers with safety training or enforce safety regulations, they put workers at risk for serious injuries. While workers are prone to blaming themselves for their injuries, in many cases their injuries occurred because employers failed to follow safety regulations without the workers’ knowledge. If you suffered an injury at work, a Carlisle work injury attorney will be able to investigate your case to determine who was at fault for your accident. Even if you believe you were partially at fault, you have nothing to lose by speaking with an attorney. Your case may have underlying factors that your lawyer is familiar with and can investigate further.

The negligence that leads to work injuries can take many forms including:

  • Equipment failures
  • Falling objects and flying debris
  • Slip and falls
  • Improper maintenance
  • Failure to comply with safety regulations
  • Inadequate inspections
  • Insufficient training
  • Mismanagement
