Know Your Rights When Work Injuries Occur

Some worksites are more dangerous than others, but workplace injuries can occur in any setting. If you suffer a work-related injury, Pennsylvania workers' compensation laws provide compensation for medical costs and a portion of lost wages. If your injury stems from a workplace accident, you may also be able to pursue a personal injury lawsuit.

The laws regarding workplace accidents and personal injury claims are complex. It is wise to work with an experienced injury lawyer like those at The Pagano Law Firm, LLC, in Media. Because we have a comprehensive understanding of both Pennsylvania workers' compensation laws and personal injury statutes, we will make sure you recover the full amount you deserve.

When A Personal Injury Claim And Workers' Comp Claim Make Sense

If an injury accident in the workplace is the result of negligence on the part of a third party, the injured individual may file a personal injury claim in addition to a workers' comp claim. This occurs frequently in the construction industry, where a number of independent contractors all work at one site. The injured worker may be able to file a workers' comp claim with his or her own employer, as well as a personal injury claim against the employer of the at-fault third party.

A second situation in which a personal injury claim may be warranted in relation to a workplace injury is when the injury results from an employer's intentional or reckless conduct, such as not adhering to property safety regulations or needlessly causing exposure to toxic chemicals.

In addition, if you are injured at work by a defective product, you may be able to file a personal injury claim.
