WORK RELATED INJURIES
If you are an employee and have been injured at work, Pennsylvania Law provides for your protection.
By law, your employer is responsible for payment of all medical bills which are reasonable, necessary, and related to the treatment of your injury. This law also requires that your medical bill be paid even if the accident occurred due to your negligence. And even if you have no medical insurance or health coverage of your own. Additionally, during the period of time you are out of work due to your injury, you are entitled to a portion of your wages to be paid to you and this is coverage that applies even if you have no sick time or disability insurance of your own. As with areas of the law, the sooner you have an attorney the sooner your rights can be enforced. As with personal injury claims, your attorney does not get paid until the end of your case.
