When a worker becomes ill or injured due to events that took place during the course of employment, an individual may be entitled to certain compensation. However, the laws governing these cases can be very complex and every situation is unique. That being said, Rand Spear is now informing prospective clients about the importance of obtaining legal representation in worker’s compensation cases this May.
Unfortunately, many Americans are unaware of their rights when it comes to worker’s compensation. Every state has different laws governing the right to worker’s compensation benefits. Furthermore, some federal employees have different rights than the average employee in a given state. In Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Worker’s Compensation Act requires all employers to provide for worker’s compensation insurance coverage. This coverage applies to both non-profit and for-profit organizations. Furthermore, seasonal and part-time employees must be covered through an employer’s worker’s compensation insurance policy.
Pennsylvania has taken great strides in ensuring safe workplaces throughout the state. In fact, as of March 2013, over 10,000 state-certified workplace safety committees have been enacted in Pennsylvania. However, injuries and illness still happen as a result of working conditions in Pennsylvania. When an individual is diagnosed with an injury or illness as a result of workplace conditions, it is critical to contact an attorney. Full understanding of a worker’s rights is almost impossible to obtain without years of legal study and practice.
Rand Spear, an accident attorney in Philadelphia, will be able to make sure an individual receives the full benefit amount in a given case. There are a number of important factors that must be discussed between attorney and client including: lost wages benefits, death benefits, specific loss benefits, medical care, total disability versus partial disability, time limits, offers of employment, and much more. There are simply too many factors involved in a worker’s compensation case to handle alone. The attorneys at Rand Spear will be more than happy to discuss options and representation for any worker’s compensation claims.
