Your work could be making you sick, but you have options

As a Pennsylvania worker, you know that you are entitled to certain benefits in the event of a work accident and injury. However, you are still entitled to the same benefits in the event that you come down with an illness that was the result of your work environment, job duties or other work-related factors.

Do you have misconceptions about workers' compensation claims?

You may know that most Pennsylvania workers have the right to certain benefits if they suffer an injury at work. However, there are many misconceptions about how this process works, and unfortunately, they can keep some workers from seeking the benefits to which they have a rightful claim.

Landscapers: Do you know the poisoning risks of your job?

If you are an employee of a landscaper in Pennsylvania, you might be aware of the dangers posed by the equipment you use. But, do you know that you are also at a high risk of being poisoned? Does your employer provide safety training and personal protective equipment to keep you safe? These are Occupational Safety and Health Administration requirements, and non-compliance can be to your detriment.

What happens if you fall while climbing the ladder to success?

If you've been working at the same Pennsylvania company for a decade or more, you're to be congratulated as many people nowadays frequently change jobs in search of better pay, more benefits or the proverbial golden rings of success. Nothing can abruptly interrupt your path to success quicker than an on-the-job injury. One of the most common types of workplace injuries involves slipping and falling, or falling from ladders, rooftops or other high places. 

You don't have to fight for denied workers' comp benefits alone

As a member of the workforce in Pennsylvania, you likely had peace of mind about the welfare of your family if you should suffer a workplace injury. After all, your workers' compensation benefits will pay medical expenses and provide financial assistance if you become temporarily disabled. However, were you disillusioned when your company's insurance provider recently denied you claim?

Seeking help for musculoskeletal disorders

Most employers understand the importance of providing protective eyewear, back braces, personal fall prevention devices and hard hats to protect their employees from injury on the job. Studies show that employees can avoid many injuries if they use the appropriate safety gear and follow protocol for their own protection.

Are spinal cord injuries covered under workers' comp?

In Pennsylvania and elsewhere, work-related neck and back injuries are quite common. When such injuries damage the spinal cord, the consequences can be rather serious. While there are those who may only require medication, rehabilitation and rest in order to recover, others injuries may cause permanent damage resulting in the need for life-long care. If you suffered such an injury while on the job, workers' comp benefits may be available to help you get the care and financial help you need.
