Workers' compensation for Pennsylvania healthcare workers

A Pennsylvania worker's life can be full of dangers, especially if you work in a high-risk industry, such as mining, construction and logging. Erie County, Pennsylvania, workers should know that even though they work in a seemingly safe environment, they can still be exposed to workplace hazards that can cause serious injuries or death. For example, paramedics, healthcare workers and corrections officers are at risk of being exposed to infectious diseases on a daily basis. If these workers contract an occupational disease, they can be entitled to workers' compensation.

Our law firm has extensive experience addressing the needs of workers' compensation cases, so we understand how difficult it may be to obtain benefits. Insurance companies may contest the reason for your disease, saying its origin is not due to your occupation and thus removing your entitlement to compensation. What happens once your claim is denied? If your claim is denied, reimbursement of losses, such as lost wages and medical expenses, is unavailable. As bills pile up, you may be wondering if and how to obtain the compensation you have earned.

Yes, workers can obtain rightful compensation after denial. Our experience in handling such cases gives our firm an advantageous edge and the ability to overcome such obstacles. Often, we advise clients to file an appeal with the Workers' Compensation Commission so the claim can be reviewed for validity. We also investigate the worker's case and gather substantial evidence to support the claim.

Workers' compensation benefits help those who have contracted occupational diseases and injuries by paying medical expenses and other incurred losses.
