Workers' compensation information for victims

When employees go to work, they expect to help their employer through their efforts while providing for their families. They do not expect to be injured by simply completing their job. Dugan & Associates, P.C. is committed to helping injured employees. In addition to helping employees with their workers' compensation claims and personal injury lawsuits, we also help claimants with Social Security Disability Insurance claims.

Pennsylvania law requires employers who are responsible for the injury to provide workers' with a variety of benefits, such as replacing their wages and paying for medical expenses. Workers may suffer injuries to specific portions of their body, such as their back, neck and shoulder. However, workers' compensation can also include claims for crush injuries, burns and fractures or for workplace illnesses that employees develop through their work, such as one that forms after being exposed to harmful dust or chemicals, hearing loss or hepatitis. Dugan & Associates, P.C. also represents employees who have a pre-existing injury or condition aggravated due to work. We have successfully represented thousands of injured employees across the region.

A workers' compensation lawyer may explain various rules that pertain to the workers' compensation system. For example, there are strict deadlines in which to file a claim and evidentiary guidelines that must be followed. Additionally, he or she may explain how your Social Security Disability benefits may be affected through a successful workers' compensation claim. In some situations, a personal injury lawsuit may be filed if workers' compensation is not available in an employee's case.

Filing a workers' compensation claim requires fulfilling many steps according to specific guidelines. If you would like to know more about what you should do if you are injured on the job, please view our page on workplace accidents.
