Every job carries with it the risk of injury. While some jobs, such as construction, law enforcement and fire fighting carry greater risks of injury than others, even the most sedintary jobs can cause a worker to develop work-related health conditions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Most employers carry insurance who cover an employee's medical bills and loss of income for a period of time following the employee's injury. Where the employer does not carry workers compensation insurance, the States of Pennsylvania and New Jersey may offer similar benefits to injured workers.
An injured worker must realize that his or her employer and its insurance company is mainly concerned with getting the employee back to work as quickly as possible. This often leads to workers returning to their jobs before they are medically able to do so as employers often try to incentivize injured workers to return to their jobs before they should.
An experienced workers compensation attorney can assist injured employees with receiving proper medical care, ensure that medical bills are paid and that the injured employee is paid loss of income benefits, and most importantly, fight for continued benefits until the injured worker is ready to return to his or her job.
While workers compensation is limited to only medical benefits and wage loss, Mr. Weitz and his firm investigate any third-party liability to recover money for pain and suffering incurred by the injured worker and the continuation of such damages into the future.
