Workplace Injuries

Many employees all over Pennsylvania do their jobs with little to no concern about their personal safety. Workers in certain industries can be more conscious of potential hazards, but assume that their employers and co-workers are all doing their part to minimize any potential harm.

When a person does suffer an injury in the workplace, it takes both a physical and financial toll on that workers as well as his or her entire family. Most employees who find themselves in these situations immediately and understandably turn to workers’ compensation, but this is not always a laborer’s only option.

Chester County Worker’s Compensation Law

When a person has sustained an injury on the job, he or she can seek compensation under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act. Employees in certain cases may be able to file a civil lawsuit against the employer, but several jobs require individuals to use the workers’ compensation system.

Workers’ Compensation traditionally covers only lost wages and medical bills. However, the benefits an injured worker receives are usually a percentage of his or her “average weekly wages,” and these benefits do not account for pain and suffering or additional expenses that a person may incur because of his or her injuries.

An employer and the workers' compensation insurance company both have vested interests in seeing that injured workers are paid as little as possible, meaning that they will find any reason to deny, terminate, modify, or suspend benefits. Working with a personal injury lawyer will not only help a person receive as much as possible from workers’ compensation, but also explore other options for obtaining compensation.

Third Party Liability in Chester County Workplace Injuries

Even in cases in which an individual is unable to sue his or her employer for injuries suffered while on the job, workers’ compensation does not prohibit a person from filing a lawsuit against a negligent third party that caused or contributed to the injury. A few examples of third parties that can be liable in these types of cases include, but are not limited to:

  • Individuals — Certain people may be liable if their negligence results in a worker’s injuries. Examples might include contractors or subcontractors who misuse equipment, or co-workers or drivers who cause automobile accidents in company vehicles or with an employee who is on the clock.
  • Equipment Manufacturers or Vendors — A company that sold or produced a defectively designed or malfunctioning tool or machine that caused an injury may be subject to a product liability lawsuit.
  • Property Owners — If a worker sustained injuries because of preventable hazards on the property of a third party, this could be grounds for a premises liability lawsuit.
