If your work injury is caused by the carelessness of anyone other than your employer, that party is subject to a civil lawsuit and you can be compensated above and beyond the workers’ compensation benefits owed to you.
Despite all of the laws and safeguards, workplace accidents too often occur. If you or a family member has been injured due to the negligence or carelessness of others, faulty or defective equipment, or poor safety management, call the injury Attorneys/Lawyers at the Reading, Berks County, PA, law firm of Liever, Hyman & Potter. We’ll determine if you have a case and who is responsible for the injuries, deal with the parties and their insurance companies, and devote our expertise and resources to seeing that you get the award or settlement that you deserve.
Injuries sustained on-the-job can be life-altering and are often times catastrophic. Work-related injuries frequently result from motor vehicle and truck accidents, construction accidents, malfunctioning and defective equipment, the use of heavy equipment and other powered industrial trucks, as well from explosions, spills and exposure to chemicals. The Reading, Berks County, PA, personal injury Attorneys/Lawyers at Liever, Hyman & Potter, P.C., have considerable experience representing victims injured by these types of accidents.
Because workers’ compensation benefits only partially replace your wages and because work comp benefits do not pay for all the losses and damages caused by work injuries, in appropriate cases, a lawsuit can be filed on behalf of the injured worker and his or her family against the responsible person or company in order to more fully compensate them by obtaining compensation for the pain and suffering of the injured worker, as well as for disruption to the home life of the injured worker and his family.
If you feel you have such a case, contact the Attorneys/Lawyers at Liever, Hyman & Potter as soon as possible so that we can evaluate your case and undertake an appropriate investigation of the matter. You’ll pay us no money — not a cent — until we recover money for you, after which our contingent fee will be based on a percentage of the awards and settlement that will be clearly defined in the initial agreement to represent you. Unlike other law firms, our agreement says that you will NOT have to repay any of the expenses that we may have advanced on your behalf unless we recover money for you.
