Pennsylvania law requires most employers to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage for every employee from the first day they work. This coverage pays out for your medical care, a portion of lost wages, and more if you suffer on-the-job injuries.
If you need help filing your workers’ compensation claim, got denied for benefits, or have another problem with your Bucks County case, the team from Cordisco & Saile LLC can help. Call 215-642-2335 today for a free case review. You do not pay for our attorney’s services out-of-pocket; we only get paid if we get compensation for you.
Almost Any Workplace Accident Should Qualify You for Workers’ Compensation
Workers’ compensation insurance does not take fault into account when determining if you are eligible for coverage. Because of this, almost any on-the-job injury should qualify for benefits as long as your employer provides coverage. All employees should be able to file a claim and receive medical care and other benefits through their employer’s workers’ compensation policy.
The team from Cordisco & Saile LLC can see if your injuries are covered under workers’ compensation and file your claim or appeal a denial on your behalf. Call us today at 215-642-2335 to discuss what happened and how we can help you.
Pursuing a Third-Party Claim
While the PA Workers’ Compensation Act prevents most employees from filing a lawsuit against their employer following an accident, you may be able to pursue additional damages from a liable third party. We can also review your accident to see if this is possible based on your case’s facts.
For example, if a distributor caused your injuries in a truck accident while making a delivery to your Bucks County workplace, we may be able to show they acted negligently and pursue a payout from their employer for the damages you suffered not covered by workers’ compensation.
