Pittsburgh is a working class town full of resilient people. The industrial, manufacturing and construction industries are still prominent in Western Pennsylvania. However, construction jobs can be very dangerous which unfortunately means that many people get hurt or even killed in construction or workplace accidents in Pittsburgh too often. On top of the stress of medical visits, hospital bills and insurance claims, you and your family may find that workers compensation claims and the paperwork, and hoops that go along with them, only add to your stress level. If you are a victim of a workplace injury, it’s important that you consult work injury lawyers to alleviate your worries and get you the compensation you deserve for your injuries, lost wages, future lost wages and pain and suffering.
If workers’ compensation does not cover all your medical expenses and lost wages you may need to file a third party claim or personal injury claim against the party at fault. Proving who was at fault for the accident can be challenging.
Common Work Injuries
If you were injured on the job you may be entitled to workers’ compensation through your employer. Because claims can be so complicated, having an experienced and aggressive attorney on your side may help you to collect the most in damages.
In Pennsylvania, wage loss benefits only cover two thirds of your average weekly wages. Therefore, if another party was at fault for your accident, you may also want to file a third party claim or personal injury claim to recover all damages to which you are entitled.
