If you suffer a work injury, you are probably eligible for compensation. Philadelphia workers’ comp attorney Alan J. Tauber stands ready to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
Philadelphia Workers Compensation Attorneys Are Ready to Help
In a working-class city like Philadelphia, with a lot of heavy industry and construction, workplace injuries are common.
Workplace injuries are not limited to stereotypical “blue-collar” occupations, either. Car accidents, violent crime, and other events plague employees of all types. Workers’ compensation laws cover injured workers and the families of workers who die in workplace accidents. A personal injury lawsuit is also sometimes possible.
One of the major advantages of the workers’ compensation system is its “no-fault” nature. This means that you do not have to prove that your employer was at fault to obtain benefits. The major disadvantage of a workers’ compensation claim compared to an ordinary personal injury claim is that you cannot claim noneconomic damages. A Philadelphia workers comp lawyercan help you navigate the legal maze that you will be facing.

Common Causes of Workplace Accidents
The causes of workplace accidents cluster around just a few causes, including:
Overexertion: This category includes repetitive motion, lifting objects that are too heavy, lifting heavy objects too many times, or repeatedly bending to lift heavy objects.
Slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall accidents are the number one cause of workers’ compensation claims.
Bodily contact with equipment. The workplace equipment doesn’t have to be malfunctioning for an accident to happen, although it sometimes is. Getting your hand caught in a machine that breaks your fingers is a common example.
Injury from falling debris.
Many other conditions cause injury and death in the workplace. Contact a Philadelphia workplace injury attorney no matter whose fault the accident was. In most cases, it won’t matter.

Reach Out to a Workplace Injury Attorney in Philadelphia
Do I have a time limit for filing a workers’ compensation claim?
Yes, you do. The general limit for filing a workers’ compensation claim is three years after the date of your injury. Other deadlines apply as well. You must inform your employer of your injury within 120 days of your injury, for example.
How much is the average workers’ compensation settlement?
The average worker's compensation settlement is about $20,000. This number is inherently misleading, however, because the amount you receive depends on the facts of your individual case. Because of the fact-based nature of a workers’ compensation settlement, an average means very little.
How much does a good Pennsylvania work injury lawyer cost?
A good Philadelphia work injury lawyer won't charge you anything upfront. Your legal fees will amount to a pre-agreed percentage of whatever amount of compensation you receive. If you receive nothing, you will owe nothing in legal fees.
