Pittsburgh PA Workers Compensation Lawyer
PA & OH Workmans Comp Attorney
Many accidents happen while at work. In Pennsylvania and Ohio alone, thousands are hurt every year while they are at work. Every business in OH and PA is required to carry Worker’s Compensation insurance in case of an accident. Workers Compensation is designed to recover an employee’s economic loss during their period of recovery.
The term “workers’ compensation” refers to a system of laws outlining specific benefits to which injured employees are entitled, and the procedures for obtaining such benefits. Every state has its own workers’ compensation laws, which are contained in statutes, and vary somewhat from state to state. In addition, there are special, federal workers’ compensation laws for employees of the federal government and other, specific types of industries.
Under the law in Pennsylvania and Ohio, every business must have some form of workers’ compensation insurance to cover injured employees. Filing a workers’ compensation claim is similar to filing an insurance claim; it isn’t a lawsuit against an employer, but rather a request for benefits. If you have been injured at work, attorneys experienced in workmans comp law can explain the complexities of workers’ compensation and help you secure the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.
Dallas and his associates have handled thousands of cases throughout Pennsylvania and Ohio and have experience with the Workers Compensation Laws and Personal Injury Laws in both states.
