It is your right to file suit for compensation for your injuries

If you are a construction worker and you have been injured in a work-related accident caused by negligent and unsafe work conditions, you may be experiencing serious injuries to your back, neck, and spinal cord. These injuries, if not treated, may result in a permanent disability. A detailed doctor's check up can sum up the total damage.

You might want to consult with a physical therapist and begin your physical therapy immediately. If you have a suffered a spinal cord injury and the injury is severe, it's possible that you have a loss of muscle function below the injury. This could cause permanent paralysis.

If you or a loved one has been affected by a work-related injury that's irreparable, know that you are not alone. OSHA has been fighting for construction workers like you to get you the compensation you deserve. On January 1, 2017, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration  (OSHA) will effectively issue a new rule for all employees and employers to follow. The new rule will require employers to electronically submit injury and illness data to the OSHA website. This information will be publicly recorded on the website and may help create a more transparent system to protect the individuals who have been injured at their job sites.

In Pennsylvania, if an employer acknowledges the employee's claim that he or she has suffered an injury due to a fall, then they may be eligible for workers' compensation and health care coverage for a lifetime. You may want to contact an experienced Pittsburgh workplace compensation attorney who can guide you and provide you with the workers' compensation you need to begin a new life.
