Celebration Workplace Accident Attorney

Injured at work in Celebration?

Workers' compensation laws were put in place to ensure that employees injured on the job have access to the medical care they need and the financial assistance they deserve after a workplace accident. The laws protect both employees and employers, and make it impossible to sue your employer, except in certain cases. No matter who is at fault for the accident, these programs are intended to help workers get paid benefits when a job-related injury has led to lost wages, ongoing medical costs, and some other damages.

If you or your loved one was injured on the job and your employer or the workers' compensation insurance provider is uncooperative, contact Celebration Law, PA right away for assistance. We fight aggressively for victims of personal injury, working tirelessly to get the compensation to which they are entitled from the workers' compensation insurance program. Our lawyers are your neighbors, having lived in Celebration for more than 10 years and each of us are active in our local community. We truly care about you and your family, and you can trust us to seek out any possible form of compensation for you, including from any third party that may hold liability for your injuries.

There are cases in which another party holds some level of responsibility for your injuries, whether a subcontractor, utility company, equipment manufacturer or leasing company or other party. In these cases, it may be possible to pursue compensation beyond what you are due through the workers' comp system. It is important that this issue is evaluated as soon as possible after the accident has taken place.

Steps to Take After a Workplace Accident

There are certain steps you should take after being injured at work to ensure the best possible results. Here are some actions that will help you in the process of getting benefits:

  • Report your accident and injuries to your employer right away.
  • Seek medical attention and get a full evaluation of your condition.
  • After receiving any necessary medical care, request all applicable forms from your employer, fill them out, and file them per the instructions.
  • Do not let your employer talk you out of filing a claim. Even if your injuries are minor, you have a right to submit a claim. Only you know how much pain you are experiencing, and only you and the medical professional should make the determination about when are healed enough to return to your duties at work.
  • If your claim is denied, it is not uncommon. Your employer may claim that you were injured elsewhere. We should get involved at once in these cases.
  • Contact a workers' compensation attorney experienced in recovering damages for injured workers if your claim was wrongfully denied or if your employer is claiming you were not injured at work.
  • In cases of catastrophic injury or loss of life, ensure that you have legal representation from our firm throughout the entire process, as the outcome with regard to a settlement or ongoing payments will be so important to the survival of the family, and the quality of life of the catastrophically injured person.
