Obtain Workers’ Compensation You Are Entitled To Receive
Under the best circumstances, injuries at work are typically covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. In Pennsylvania, any business that has workers, full- or part-time, is required to meet their statutory workers’ compensation obligations by either getting an insurance policy or by being approved as a self-insurer.
Still, this is no guarantee that you’ll be fairly compensated by your employer in the event of an injury. Also, if you’ve suffered a reasonably preventable injury or trauma caused by unsafe working conditions, you need an expert advocate to assure that you receive adequate compensation. If your medical bills exceed the nominal workers’ compensation payout, you could be entitled to more.
Attorney Craig P. Kalinoski of Kalinoski Law Offices P.C. in Scranton handles cases dealing with the cause of the workplace injury, unpaid medical bills in excess of offered compensation, hearing loss claims resulting from workplace conditions, reduced or denied compensation benefits, and hearing loss, permanent physical scars or other disfigurement as a result of injury.
If you live in Pennsylvania, and you’ve been injured at work, don’t wait — inform your employer of your injury as soon as possible, and contact our office in downtown Scranton to ensure that you receive the compensation you’re entitled to.
