Getting Hurt On The Job
Workers’ compensation laws are designed to protect people who are injured on the job. Rather than forcing you to go through the complex and expensive civil litigation process, workers’ comp provides a more straightforward, no-fault system of benefits. Let Engle, Kauffman & VanHorn, P.C., provide the guidance you need in State College and beyond.
Effective Representation For Those Hurt At Work
If you have become unable to work due to injuries on the job, this is likely to affect all aspects of your life — including your life at home. With mounting medical bills and time off from work, you may find yourself worrying as much about caring for your family as you worry about getting better.
We can effectively represent you for claims arising under the workers’ compensation laws. We will handle the legal aspects of your injuries so that you can focus on the truly important part: healing.
Workers’ compensation is intended to be a straightforward process, but many legitimately injured people are unfairly denied benefits. We will make sure that your claims are fully presented and that we have extracted the most relevant details. We will work diligently to protect your rights and interests.
Handling Claims Arising Under Personal Injury And Workers’ Compensation Laws
We have extensive experience representing injured people, for both the workers’ compensation process and for personal injury claims. Depending upon the nature of your injuries and your personal circumstances, you may be able to obtain compensation in both systems.
For example, if you are injured on a construction site as an employee of a subcontractor, you may be able to obtain compensation for your injuries from workers’ compensation — but you may also be able to sue another subcontractor or other third party for negligence. Our attorneys will consider all potential sources to ensure that you are fairly compensated for the consequences of your injuries.
