Workmans Comp in Schuylkill & Berks County
Getting injured on-the-job can be a life changing event. Suddenly, you are faced with the prospect of not being able to work and earn a living. You have bills to pay and a family to support. However, too often the insurance companies try to deny claims or delay paying claims rather than compensating the injured worker as the workers’ comp law requires. Workers’ Comp is sometimes referred to as workman’s comp or workmen’s comp. If you have been injured on-the-job in Reading, Berks County, Pottsville, Schuylkill County, or anywhere else in PA, the skilled and dedicated work comp attorneys at Liever, Hyman & Potter can immediately take action on your behalf to protect your rights and obtain work comp benefits to which you are entitled.
Injured workers in Pennsylvania are entitled to work comp wage loss and medical benefits under the PA Workers’ Compensation Act. Depending on the nature and severity of your injury, you may also be entitled to work comp benefits for scarring and disfigurement or the loss of use or function of a body part. Should tragedy strike, work comp benefits may be available to family members of loved ones who suffer fatal injuries on the job.
While many work injuries arise out of accidents involving physical impact in which a worker, for example, breaks a bone, suffers an amputation or sustains trauma to the head, workers are also entitled to be compensated for medical conditions that are caused by work activity that aggravates a pre-existing condition, or that result from repetitive work. Workers who are exposed to dangerous chemicals, fumes and other harmful substances are entitled to compensation should they become sickened or ill. Hearing loss due to hazardous industrial noise is compensable as well.
