We will help you seek the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to cover your current and long-term medical expenses, as well as lost wages, permanent or partial disability, and more.
When Will You Qualify for Workers' Comp for a Philadelphia Shoulder or Rotator Cuff Injury?
Rotator cuff and shoulder injuries caused by the conditions of your work environment are unacceptable. Fortunately, you may be entitled to workers’ comp benefits for your Philadelphia rotator cuff or shoulder injury.
The vast majority of employers across the state of Pennsylvania are required to provide their employees with work comp coverage from the first day of their employment. Part-time and full-time employees are covered. The only other requirement that you’ll need to meet in order to be eligible for work comp coverage for a shoulder or a rotator cuff injury in Philadelphia is that the injury must have occurred through the scope of your employment.
For example, if you were seriously injured in a car accident driving on your way home from work, you would not be entitled to work comp benefits. However, if you are a professional driver and are seriously injured in a car accident while on the job, you would be eligible for benefits.
It is not unusual for people who have suffered shoulder and rotator cuff injuries to be unsure whether they qualify for work comp benefits. Contact a seasoned Philadelphia shoulder and rotator cuff injury lawyer today to find out what your legal options for financial recovery are.
