Getting hurt on the job can feel like a major setback. Suddenly you are unable to work, and you may be unsure how you are going to pay your bills. You have heard about people filing for workers’ compensation, but you are concerned about losing your job if you file. And even if you file, you don’t know when (or if) your benefits are ever going to come through.

These are all common concerns among people who get hurt on the job. Fortunately, you do not have to deal with your situation alone. The workers’ compensation lawyers at Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys can help. For example, we can tell you that your employer cannot retaliate against you for filing for workers’ compensation. We can also help you understand your claim for benefits, and we can pursue additional compensation from any third parties (such as a building owner or contractor) that are liable for your injuries.

Our firm has been representing accident victims in Schuykill County and the Pottsville area for nearly 60 years. We have successfully represented employees in workers’ compensation claims against employers throughout Pennsylvania, and we have recovered millions in third-party claims where our clients deserved more than their employers were required to pay. If you were injured on the job, we encourage you to contact us for a free consultation. It costs you nothing to learn about your rights, and our contingency fees mean that you pay nothing unless we win your case.

“About 5 months ago, I had injured my back after lifting a heavy box at work. My employer refused to submit my claim even though the doctor had said the injury was caused by the action. I turned to Caroline Munley for help and I’m glad that I did. She walked me through filing my claim and helped me get the money to pay for my medical bills. I don’t know where I would be without her. Thank you, Ms. Munley!” – Lisa, a Workers’ Compensation Client

Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation FAQs

Q: What types of injuries are eligible for workers’ compensation?

In Pennsylvania, all types of work-related injuries are potentially eligible for workers’ compensation. If you got hurt on the job, with only limited exceptions, your employer is required to pay regardless of fault in the accident. For example, we have handled workers’ compensation cases involving:

  • Aggravation of an existing knee injury
  • Ankle fractures
  • Finger fractures
  • Injuries resulting in amputation
  • Lower back injuries requiring surgery
  • Lumbar spine injuries
  • Shoulder sprains
  • Torn rotator cuffs
  • Upper back and neck sprains

Q: How long do I have to file a workers’ comp claim?

Under Pennsylvania law, you must notify your employer of your injury within 120 days of the accident in which your injury occurred. For occupational diseases, you have 300 weeks from your last date of employment to assert your legal rights. If you wait too long to file your claim, you could lose your rights entirely.

If you have a third-party claim (for example, if you fell because the owner of your employer’s office building failed to perform necessary maintenance), you may have up to two years to file your claim for compensation. However, for several reasons, it is still important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible.

If you intend to file for workers’ compensation, you must see an approved doctor for your first 90 days of treatment. Your employer should give you a list of doctors to choose from. After 90 days, you can see your own doctor as long as you provide adequate notice to your employer. Learn more here: Workers’ Compensation Questions and Answers.

    Dan Munley fought like a tiger in the courtroom. He did not rest until the insurance company paid my personal injury claim once and for all. Thanks to Mr. Munley, my family has been taken care of and my medical bills have been paid for. Thanks again to you and your family. Harry, a Personal Injury Client

    I had a complex medical malpractice case and I wasn’t sure if there was an liability there. I felt there was some negligent behavior on the part of some nursing home staff. This firm, through Marion Munley, took me through all the steps necessary to prove negligent behavior that might have caused death of my loved one. She was very compassionate and very detailed and patience. I think they are a terrific firm. There wasn’t anything I disliked… I would highly recommend them as a Personal Injury Law Firm. They also handle all types of car and truck accidents, workers compensation and social security disability. I think they are the best in town. Guest of Bing
