Work Injury Attorneys in Allentown, PA
Job-related injuries are very common; accidents can and do happen on the job. Each year, thousands of workers are seriously injured or killed in work-related accidents.
If you are injured on the job, you may qualify for Worker's Compensation, which is intended to pay your medical bills and lost wages until you are able to return to work. You may also be entitled to a lump-sum payment for your loss. Obtaining Worker's Compensation benefits isn't always a simple procedure. Insurance companies have a team of lawyers on their side. You should protect your rights with competent legal counsel.
Although Worker's Compensation Benefits are typically your exclusive remedy against your employer, a worker injured on the job may be able to bring an action against the person or entity responsible for the employee's injuries; a personal injury or negligence claim. Pain and suffering and loss of life's pleasures are not recoverable in a Worker's Compensation Claim. Therefore, if you are injured while on the job, you should contact us to determine if there are other claims, besides a Worker's Compensation Claim, to obtain compensation for your injuries. These types of claims may include motor vehicle collisions, slip and fall claims and dog bites, among others.
If you have any questions about your work-related injury, contact us toll free at 1-888-514-1100. We'll be happy to discuss all aspects of your injury claim with you. Scherline & Associates will represent you on a contingency-fee basis, which means that there is never a fee unless we recover for you.
