How a lawyer can help in a workers' compensation case

Worker's compensation is a form of insurance benefit that is available for the employees of an organization in case they sustain an injury during the course of authorized work. Friday & Cox LLC has specialized in worker's compensation for over 75 years and has helped many employees obtain proper compensation.

Worker's compensation cases can sometimes be difficult to prove. First, one needs to prove that the worker has indeed suffered an injury. Second, the injury suffered must have been inflicted while the worker was at the worksite or while he or she was executing an authorized job. Many times, a worker may suffer an injury outside the workplace, but during regular work hours. These areas may get tricky to prove in a court of law. Friday & Cox LLC, have their own legal experts, with decades of experience. They know how to traverse the complicated legal areas in order to get an injured worker the compensation to which he or she is entitled.

One of the most common defenses used by workers' compensation defendants is that the injury claimed was a pre-existing injury or did not occur at work. Friday & Cox LLC, with their aggressive style and their own research and investigation team can help injured workers stand up against the larger corporations and give them the fair fight that they deserve. It is important to remember that under Pennsylvania worker's compensation laws, aggravation of a pre-existing injury may not necessarily prevent a worker from seeking compensation.

An injury suffered in the workplace can have grave repercussions. Prolonged chronic impairment, psychological trauma and physical ailments, as well as hefty medical expenses, are just a few of an injured worker's problems. A worker may even suffer unemployment for an indefinite period of time, depending upon the nature of the injury. At Friday & Cox LLC, our attorneys diligently seek justice for our clients.
