Pennsylvania Shoulder Injury Lawyer
Joints are not everlasting. When workers use the same arm too long, perform constant repetitive work, fall with an arm outstretched, are working on their hands and knees, or regularly twist and turn in an awkward position, they can suffer injuries to their shoulders, wrists, elbows and knees. Recovery from a joint injury means taking time off of work so that the wrist, the rotator cuff, the shoulder, the elbow, the knee or any other joint has the time it needs to heal.
Many people do not think that they can afford to take the time off of work. Still others are afraid that if they seek medical care for their work-related injury or need time off, they will lose their job.

It is important to get appropriate medical treatment immediately after you have been injured at work. It is also important to document and notify your employer that the injury did happen at work. Your employer is responsible for paying your medical bills and paying for lost wages during the time that you are out. But if you do not report the injury within 21 days of its occurrence, you may lose all rights that you would have with respect to your work-related injury, and your company will not have to pay for medical treatment or for lost time.

He knows how to fight for injured workers' rights to get the appropriate medical care that they need and the time off that they need to recover.
