Claiming Workers’ Compensation Benefits from Fall Related Injuries
A common misconception among workers is that a fall results from their own carelessness or fault and is therefore not a work-related injury entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits. As long as the injuries from the fall occurred during the course of the worker performing their job duties, Workers’ Compensation benefits will apply. Pennsylvania workers that are injured on the job are not required to prove employer negligence or carelessness.
Anytime a worker is injured on the job, whether it be from a fall or other type of accident, the incident must be reported to the employer. After the employee’s injuries are stabilized, pictures of the area where the accident occurred are vital evidence to dispute a claim that is denied. Medical interventions should be documented, including emergency room visits, surgeries, doctor visits, therapy sessions, and prescription medication costs. Workers’ Compensation benefits will pay or reimburse the victim for these charges.
Though many workers may feel it is not necessary to contact a Workers’ Compensation lawyer when they are injured on the job, a competent Workers’ Compensation lawyer can review the details of your case to ensure you are receiving the maximum benefits available to you.
