Unfortunately employers knowingly or unknowingly subject their employees to unsafe working conditions. When this happens, workers can suffer in more ways than one. From life-altering injuries that demand ongoing medical treatment to lost wages, workplace accidents can hurt employees physically, financially, and emotionally.
Ron Creazzo, Esq., has more than twenty years of experience in dealing with work related injuries. Many injuries happen at work. In these cases, you may be able to obtain workers’ compensation to alleviate the financial stress of lost wages and payment of medical bills after you’ve been hurt. If someone is killed on the job, the surviving spouse and/or dependents are eligible for benefits. There are other remedies for loss of a body part or scarring from the neck up.
If the negligence of a third party (a person or company other than your employer) contributed to causing your injury, such as the manufacturer of defective machinery or faulty equipment, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against that party – even if you’re also receiving workers’ compensation benefits from your employer.
Ron Creazzo, Esq. will help you determine whether you can file a claim against your employer and or a third party. If so, you may be able to recover damages for lost income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
Another important factor is where you can file the claim. If you are injured while working in Pennsylvania you can file your claim here regardless of where your employer is located. If you are injured while working in another State, and your employer is based in Pennsylvania, you can file your claim in Pennsylvania.
After a workplace accident, you may feel as if you’re alone and without options. Don't let these negative feelings consume you. Instead, empower yourself by contacting Ron Creazzo, Esq. for your free consultation. (Free consultations provided for workers’ compensation claims and personal injury cases only)
