Experienced Help With All Types Of Workers’ Compensation Claims
At Mastri Law LLC, we are proud to help workers in Pennsylvania to claim the benefits they are entitled to after suffering an on-the-job injury or illness. Having experienced legal counsel helps navigate the process and leads to a more successful outcome.
Workers’ Compensation is more than just disabling injuries and nearly fatal accidents. While these types of injuries are clear-cut examples of compensable claims, you can also pursue compensation for lesser injuries as long as they were sustained on the job and if they require medical care and/or time away from work.
No Matter The Injury, We Will Advocate For You
There are endless ways to be injured or sickened on the job. We are ready to help anyone with a valid workers’ comp claim, including those related to:
- Construction injuries
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Injuries from falling objects
- Injuries caused by falling from heights
- Burns and cuts
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries
- Occupational illnesses caused by workplace exposure to hazardous chemicals or substances
When pursuing any claim, the first step is to notify your employer. Then call Mastri Law LLC at 570-343-1111 to set up a FREE CONSULTATION.
The details and documentation of your claim are highly important. We’ll work with you to ensure that we present the strongest argument for why you deserve benefits. And we’re prepared to take your case from initial claim through all levels of appeal.
Workers’ Comp May Be Your Only Option
If your employer has workers’ compensation insurance coverage (as most Pennsylvania employers are required to do), it is your right as an employee to avail yourself of it after a workplace injury or work-related illness. In fact, because state law generally bars workers’ from suing their employers over injury claims, workers’ compensation may be your only option for compensation. The one exception to this is discussed below.
Third-Party Liability Claims
State law doesn’t allow you to sue your employer for workplace injuries, but you can sue third parties for causing or contributing to workplace accidents/injuries. If you were injured by defective product on the construction site, for instance, you could file a claim against the product manufacturer. Similarly, if you drive commercially, you could sue a drunk driver who caused a car accident while you were on the clock.
Our firm is highly experienced in both personal injury litigation and workers’ compensation, and we’ll be able to quickly determine all of your legal options after a workplace injury or illness.
