Workers' compensation & safety record publishing

In most situations, workplace injuries are devastating to both the victim and his or her family. Workers in all types of jobs do not want to be hurt while engaged in activities that are a part of their work. Dealing with the aftermath of a workplace injury, whether it be for a short or long period of time, while healing is not a pleasant experience for most. When people are injured at work, they will likely want to file a workers' compensation claim in order to be compensated for their pain, suffering, mental anguish, and missed time at work.

Workers' compensation and construction site fires

When we report about workers' compensation situations that occur on construction sites, they involve heavy construction equipment, failing ladders, or falls from five or more feet. These are not the only ways in which a construction worker may be injured while at work in Pittsburgh and throughout Western Pennsylvania, however. A recent fire at a nearby construction site has caused several injuries and workers' compensation claims are likely to follow.

Job offers in Workers' Compensation and return to work issues.

Job offers in Workers' Compensation cases. You've been hurt on the job. You've suffered a work injury. For now it seems you can't do the work that you were doing at the time of your injury. Hopefully it's temporary. You may be receiving your workers' compensation checks or you may fighting to get them. It's a stressful time. You want to get better and go back to work. You're bills may be piling up. You just want to be left alone to get your treatment so you can heal and move on. But you then receive a letter from the workers' compensation insurance carrier or your employer, A Notice of Ability to Return to Work. Or a letter scheduling an exam, a job offer, or a request for a vocational interview. What does it mean?

Work Injury, Hurt at Work, Lump Sum Settlements

If you have a Work Injury and/or were hurt at work and have been receiving Workers' Compensation benefits or are attempting to get work comp you may be entitled to a lump sum settlement. If you have been receiving Workers' Compensation benefits for 4 months or longer you may be entitled to a lump sum settlement. How does that work?

Work Injury Concussion - Dr. Kasdan

Work Injury Concussions

Have you suffered a Work Injury Concussion? Has your employers' Workers' Compensation Insurance Carrier sent you for an exam of a doctor of their choosing sometimes known as an IME (Independent Medical Exam)? Is the IME physician Dr. Kasdan, Dr. Talbot, Dr. Delaney or Dr. Cosgrove or someone else hired by the work comp insurance company or their attorney? Are you suffering from a concussion, post concussion syndrome or it's effects and are treating at a concussion clinic or with a concussion specialist such as the ones at the UPMC Concussion Program?  If so you may find yourself in a situation defending your work injuries.
