Maximize Compensation For Your Work Accident Injuries
Beyond Workers’ Compensation

In Pennsylvania, an injured worker may file a workers’ compensation claim. If your injury occurred during the course and scope of your job, you would be entitled to weekly or bi-weekly checks and payments for the accident related medical care. Oftentimes though workers’ compensation checks provide only “pennies on the dollar” compared to what the injured worker is used to receiving. This leads to injured workers being “short changed” and struggling to pay their bills, support their families, and live the life that they have earned.

Frequently Asked Questions

Workers’ compensation is a state-mandated insurance program designed to provide financial benefits to employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses. Construction workers who are injured on the job are generally eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, regardless of fault. These benefits may cover medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, and disability benefits.

If you are injured in a construction accident, follow these steps to file a workers’ compensation claim:

  1. Report the accident: Notify your supervisor or employer about the injury as soon as possible, ideally within 24 hours. Each state has specific deadlines for reporting workplace injuries.
  2. Seek medical attention: Obtain immediate medical care for your injuries. Make sure to inform the healthcare provider that your injury is work-related.
  3. Complete necessary paperwork: Fill out any required workers’ compensation claim forms provided by your employer or the insurance company.
  4. Consult with an experienced attorney: Seek legal advice from an attorney, like those at Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan, to help you navigate the workers’ compensation process and ensure your claim is filed accurately and on time.

The deadline for filing a workers’ compensation claim varies by state. Generally, you must report your injury to your employer within a specific timeframe, often within days or weeks of the accident. You must also file a claim with the workers’ compensation insurance company within the state’s statute of limitations, which may range from one to several years. Consult with an experienced attorney, like those at Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan, to ensure you meet all filing deadlines.

Yes, workers’ compensation claims can be denied for various reasons, such as:

  1. Late reporting or filing: Failing to report your injury or file a claim within the required deadlines.
  2. Lack of evidence: Insufficient evidence to prove that your injury is work-related.
  3. Disputes over the nature or severity of your injury: Your employer or the insurance company may dispute the extent of your injury or whether it occurred during work-related activities.
  4. Non-covered injuries: Some types of injuries or circumstances may not be covered by workers’ compensation.

If your claim is denied, consult with an experienced attorney, like those at Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan, to discuss your options for appealing the decision.

While workers’ compensation typically prevents you from suing your employer for work-related injuries, there are some exceptions where you may be able to file a lawsuit, such as cases involving intentional harm or gross negligence. Additionally, if a third party, such as a subcontractor, equipment manufacturer, or property owner, contributed to your injury, you may be able to file a separate lawsuit against them. Consult with an experienced construction accident attorney, like those at Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan, to discuss your specific situation and potential legal options.
