If you have been injured on the job, it is the responsibility of your employer to cover the cost of your illness or injury, including all medical and rehabilitative costs and also loss of wages. Millions of employees suffer from workplace injuries and illnesses in this country every year. According to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, most nonfatal employee injuries occur in the healthcare and social assistance and the manufacturing sectors. Transportation and material moving occupations, including tractor-trailer drivers, and construction jobs account for the largest share of fatal worker injuries of any other occupation groups. If you’ve been seriously injured on the job in Philadelphia, Wilkes-Barre or anywhere in Pennsylvania, you need a workers compensation attorney who can help you get the financial support you need as quickly as possible.
Workplace injuries can be severe and can include brain injuries, head, neck and back injuries, amputation, fractures, electrocution, burn injuries, leg and joint injuries, internal injuries, asbestos and toxic chemical exposure and much more.

Third party liability in work injury claims
Although workers compensation provides for most workplace injuries, if you were injured or a loved one killed at work due to the negligence of a third party, such as defective equipment or machinery, you may be able to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit to receive further compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, and other losses.
