Do You Have a Third-Party Claim?
When your work injury is the fault of some party other than your employer or a co-employee, you have a third-party claim. This can entitle you to additional compensation beyond what you obtain from the workers’ compensation system.
Though the claims are related, your third-party claim and your workers’ compensation claim will proceed down parallel legal tracks. It is important for both claims to be handled properly. Berger and Green has successfully handled a large number of cases involving combined third-party and workers’ compensation claims. In your case, we will seek maximum compensation from all possible sources.
Pittsburgh Industrial Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Most employees in Pennsylvania are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. This coverage provides benefits for workers who have been injured on the job, including medical care, wage loss and disability benefits. Workers’ compensation benefits do not come automatically however, and they don’t necessarily continue, even if you have not yet recovered. If your benefits have been terminated, or your claim has been denied because of a so-called pre-existing condition, you need legal help.
Our firm has experience in all types of injuries, including those that typically occur in industrial settings:
- Shoulder and elbow injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Broken bones and fractures
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Other types of industrial injuries
Your employer has the right to insist that you obtain treatment from a list of physicians and medical specialists it maintains for a period of 90 days following your injury, provided that your employer has complied with Pennsylvania law. If you have questions concerning your right to treat with a doctor of your choice, speak with our attorneys.
