Why Do I Need a Philadelphia Construction Accident Lawyer?
Call a workers’ compensation attorney who will fight for your rights
Construction work can be dangerous, and with it comes the risk of construction accidents that leave workers hurt. The workers’ compensation system in Pennsylvania is designed to help injured workers by covering the cost of their medical treatment and paying them partial wages while they are recovering. But getting those benefits is not as simple as it might seem.
Employers and insurance companies often try to minimize benefits for injured workers to keep their costs down. As a result, workers may not get the full medical treatment they need or the wage compensation they deserve. The Law Offices of Richard A. Jaffe, LLC in Philadelphia helps injured workers fight back.
