Workers' Compensation Attorneys in Wexford, PA
It's a sad reality that some employers knowingly or unknowingly subject their employees to unsafe working conditions. Unfortunately, when this happens workers can suffer in more ways than one. From life-altering injuries that demand ongoing medical treatment, to lost wages, workplace accidents can hurth employees physically, financially and emotionally.
When Injury Strikes
Many injuries that happen at work are simple accidents. In these cases, you may be able to obtain workers' compensation to alleviate some of the financial stress after you've been harmed. Compensation may include monety for lost wages, the payment of certain medical expenses, and even additional compensation for the loss of a body part and some scars. In limited circumstances, if you were injured because your employer knowingly exposes you to unsafe conditions or failed to take safety measures, you may be allowed to seek compensation by filing a lawsuit against your employer seeking additional damages, including money for pain and suffering.
Moreover, if the negligence of a third party (a person or company other than your employer) contributed to causing your injury, you may be able to bring a claim or lawsuit against that party--even if you're also receiving workers' compensation benefits from your employer's insurance company.
