On the Job Injury Lawyer in PA

According to data released by the Bureau of Labor an average of 15 people are killed each day, and 200 more are hospitalized as a result of suffering catastrophic injuries sustained while at work. Additional data released by the Bureau of Labor indicate that each year more then 2 million people sustain a work related injury that prevents them from ever going back to work.

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration, also known as (OSHA) requires employers to maintain a safe working environment for their employees. The guidelines established and enforced by OSHA protect a worker in the event they suffer a catastrophic injury or wrongful death as a result of an employer’s negligence. By implementing industry safety codes employers are unable to escape liability and responsibility for resulting financial damages in the event a worker is injured as a result of an employer’s failure to comply with industry safety standards. While employers have a duty to protect their employees from suffering injuries  while in the scope of their employment, too many times unlawful short cuts are taken in attempt to increase profits.

Our skilled workplace injury lawyers understand that the safety of workers should never  take a backseat to profitability. While workplace injuries may not always result in wrongful death, the most common work injuries include back injuries from lifting heavy loads, burns from fires and explosions, crush and fall injuries sustained at construction sites, injuries caused by defective machinery, slip and fall injuries, car accidents taking place during employment, and hazardous chemical exposure that can result in permanent disability or death. Additional workplace injuries, work-related injuries, and occupational diseases include but are not limited to:

If your job injury arises during the scope of your employment duties, you may be entitled to worker’s compensation or other benefits to cover your medical bills, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, and possibly death benefits.

If you have been injured on the job, or if an existing medical condition has been worsened or aggravated by a work related injury, you should notify your employer immediately. Most employers are required to carry worker’s compensation insurance to cover your medical bills, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs if your injury occurred while you were performing a job duty. The job injury lawyers at Reiff & Bily advise you to enlist the help of an experienced Pennsylvania work place accident attorney so you can receive the maximum benefit that you are entitled to.
