Pennsylvania Work Injury Lawyers

Millions Won to Help Clients Move Forward

For employees, work injuries are one of the most common threats to their livelihoods and financial security. In many cases, work-related injuries don’t even result from a single accident, but a series of small injuries and aches that compound over the years. Repetitive stress injuries and orthopedic injuries are among the most common causes of lost productivity in the United States.

At Handler, Henning & Rosenberg, we fights for employees who have lost wages, earning ability, and financial stability due to injuries suffered on the job. Employers should create safer environments for workers or take responsibility for the injuries suffered by them—but companies rarely do either without legal action. Since 1922, Handler, Henning & Rosenberg has been responsible for hundreds of workers whose livelihoods have been threatened by work injuries, helping them get the medical care and financial support they need.

When you work with our firm, you will work with a legal team that includes J. Jeffrey Watson who is certified as a specialist in the practice of workers' compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association Workers’ Compensation Law Section. We have an in-depth understanding of both personal injury and workers' compensation law, and we are ready to go to work for you.

The Most Common Work Injuries in the United States

Industrial jobs and construction work rank among the most dangerous jobs in the U.S., with the top 4 construction injuries getting their own OSHA nickname: “The Fatal 4.” These 4 events (falling from a height, electrocution, impact from falling objects, and getting caught between two hazards) cause hundreds of deaths on an annual basis.

Not all injuries are fatal, but many still cause severe losses for workers:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Overexertion
  • Lower back injuries
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Commercial vehicle accidents

Requirements from OSHA for Reporting Serious Injuries

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) announced a ruling on November 5, 2014 that implements guidelines for employers to report serious work injuries. The new legislation went into effect January 1, 2015 and required employers to notify OSHA whenever an employee is killed on the job or a worker suffers an injury that requires hospitalization, results in an amputation, or after the loss of an eye. The new rule comes in response to findings by the Bureau of Labor Statistics that 4,405 workers were killed on the job during 2013. Prior to this, employers were not required to report single instances whereby an employee was hospitalized, only situations that involved three or more employees being admitted to the hospital were required.

Now, under the newly developed rule on reporting severe injury or illness in the workplace, employers must notify OSHA within eight hours of an employee fatality. Reporting an amputation or loss of an eye at work must be reported by employers within 24 hours. All employers are expected to comply, even those exempt from maintaining injury and illness records.
