Call a Philadelphia workers’ compensation attorney who gets results
Many jobs involve working with different types of machines. Safety protocols need to be followed, but work accidents can easily happen that leave workers seriously injured. These workers then face mounting medical costs and loss of income. The Law Offices of Richard A. Jaffe, LLC helps them get the workers’ compensation benefits they need and deserve.
Filing a claim for benefits should be a simple process. The injured worker gets needed medical treatment and receives partial wages while unable to return to work. But insurance companies and employers often try to keep payments as low as possible. Philadelphia workers’ compensation attorney Richard A. Jaffe helps injured workers fight back.
Machines in the workplace can include:
- Milling machines
- Boring machines
- Packaging machines
- Industrial sewing machines
There is a wide range of injuries that workers can suffer in a machinery accident, depending on the accident and the type of machines. Workers could suffer lacerations, broken bones, crushed limbs or fingers, amputations, traumatic brain injury (TBI) or electrocution. They may require surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy and medication. Recovery could take weeks or months. Some workers are left with a permanent disability.
Fighting for injured workers
The workers’ compensation system in Pennsylvania is supposed to cover the costs of medical treatment for injured workers and provide partial wages while they are unable to work.
