Factory workers are often injured because of extreme work conditions, including large machines with moving parts. All work-related injuries should be reported to your supervisor immediately. If you are not offered coverage, it is important to contact a Workers’ Compensation lawyer who will help you with your claim. The following are the most common factory injuries:
In the state of Pennsylvania, you must report your injury to a supervisor within 21 days of injury to receive retroactive benefits. After 21 days, you receive benefits starting on the day you reported the injury. After 120 days from your accident, you may not receive any benefits at all if you fail to report your injury to your employer. If you fear retaliation or your employer is not taking your injury seriously, contact a lawyer who will handle your case properly.
