Common Workplace Injuries for Philadelphia Employees

Skilled Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Serving Clients Throughout Pennsylvania

In Pennsylvania, a person is entitled to wage loss compensation and medical benefits if he or she is injured while working. Some injuries, however, happen to crop up more often than others due to the nature of the work. Regardless of how you sustained your injury, the Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyers of Larry Pitt & Associates want to hear your story. We can help you through every stage of the workers’ compensation process, and we will make sure to answer all of your questions along the way. If you need help filing a claim, we are here for you.

With multiple offices in and around Philadelphia, we have been able to reach clients throughout Berks County, Bucks County, Chester County, Delaware County and Montgomery County for the last 40 years. We help you document your injuries, work with your doctors and your union representative when applicable, and ensure that your application for benefits is filed correctly the first time. You worked hard and paid into the workers’ compensation system for times just like this. Let us help you when you need help the most.

Types of Claims We Handle

Though we will fight on behalf of any person legitimately injured on the job in any industry, certain types of injuries and accidents are more common than others. At Larry Pitt & Associates, our team of skilled Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyers have successfully represented workers suffering from:

These types of injuries can happen to almost any worker in any industry. Slips and falls are one of the leading causes of workplace injuries, and no one is immune from the risk.

Nearly all workers in Pennsylvania are covered by workers’ compensation. Unlike personal injury claims, injured workers do not need to prove that negligence led to the accident. Any injury that arises from or during the course of one’s employment is covered, with some exceptions. Injuries not covered include those that are unrelated to an employee’s job, happened while the worker was under the influence of illegal drugs or alcohol, or those that were intentionally inflicted by the worker.

Whether your collar is blue or white, whether you are in a union or not, whether you are employed part-time or full-time – at Larry Pitt & Associates, we have the skills, resources and experience behind us to help you plan for your future. It does not cost you a thing to talk to a workers’ compensation lawyer at our Philadelphia office, but it could end up costing you thousands if you choose not to apply for benefits, or if you try to go it alone.

Additional Options for Injured Workers

When your injury or illness is long-term or permanent, and will prevent you from being able to work for at least one year – or potentially for the rest of your life – our Philadelphia law firm can help you apply for Social Security Disability. We have helped thousands of people over the last three decades obtain the benefits they needs from workers’ compensation and the Social Security Administration, and we can help you, too. You and your lawyer will review your case together, and we can help you assess your needs and the best way to go about fulfilling them.

In some cases, you may be able to file a third-party personal injury lawsuit against the person who is responsible for your injury, which might be your only option if you are a non-employee or contractor. We can examine the evidence and review your claim to determine whether or not this is the right option for you.
