Helping victims of workplace accidents in Pennsylvania

Workplace accidents injure numerous workers every year in Pennsylvania, and often prove to be fatal. In some cases, the workers may have to spend years under medical care and rehabilitation. The attorneys at Friday & Cox LLC have diligently and aggressively defended the rights of employees for decades in Pennsylvania.

Getting injured in the workplace often leads to severe temporary or permanent disabilities. Some industries are more prone to workplace accidents than others. Construction sites and industries can often prove to be very dangerous for the workers if proper safety measures are not put into force by the employers.

The statutory law in Pennsylvania dictates that every employer subscribe to workers' compensation to pay for workplace injuries that cause the worker to be out of workforce. However, defense lawyers often try to prove that the injury or disability claimed by the worker was a pre-existing condition and not a workplace accident that occurred during the course of employment.

The attorneys at Friday & Cox LLC attempt to help in collecting medical evidence from the experts to prove that a workplace accident and injury occurred in order to make a case for workers' compensation. Any prior record of the workplace condition registered by the authorities, like the Department of Labor, may also aid in proving the case. The worker too needs to be vigilant about his or her condition. Any injury suffered during the course of employment must be reported within 120 days, otherwise the case may go against the employee.
