Workers We Represent
Work-related injuries can occur in any job setting. However, workplace accidents injure certain workers more often than others. At Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys, we frequently recover benefit payments for workers in these industries:
From highway construction crews to home-builders and everything in between, construction is a dangerous industry. Falls, concussions, traumatic brain injuries, burns, motor vehicle accidents and other types of work-related injuries happen frequently at construction sites. Construction workers are often injured in accidents involving heavy machinery or faulty equipment. We represent construction workers whose workers’ compensation claims have been denied. We also pursue third party claims on behalf of workers injured by malfunctioning equipment, negligent drivers, and more. We will investigate all possible sources of recovery to get you the maximum benefits you deserve.
Healthcare and Medical Professionals
Healthcare workers work under stressful and physically demanding conditions. We represent nurses, home health aides, long-term care providers, physician assistants, therapists, and other healthcare professionals who get hurt on the job. Falls, muscle strains, sprains, neck injuries, back injuries, and occupational illnesses are common injuries for workers in the healthcare profession.
Grocery and Retail Workers
Grocery and retail store employees, both full-time and part-time workers, have the right to seek compensation for their work-related injuries. We will review your claim, answer your questions, and help you to navigate the workers’ compensation process.
Transportation and Delivery Drivers
Truck drivers and transportation workers have some of the most dangerous jobs in the United States. Motor vehicle crashes are the most common type of fatal workplace accident across all industries. In addition to truck and car crashes, commercial drivers suffer other types of injuries due to their strenuous working conditions. We represent commercial truck drivers who get hurt on the job. In addition to your workers’ comp benefits, we will determine whether a third party lawsuit is possible.

Pennsylvania workers’ comp FAQ
Q: Which industry employees are eligible for workers’ comp?
In Pennsylvania, workers’ compensation is available in most industries and businesses. The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act covers essentially all laborers. As such, full-time, part-time, and even seasonal workers can obtain workers’ comp benefits. This is because almost every Pennsylvania business must purchase workers’ comp insurance. There are very few exceptions.
Employees who work for a government agency such as the United States Post Office are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits of a slightly different kind, known as federal workers’ comp. We can help you find a lawyer who handles this specific type of case.

Q: Which workers cannot get workers’ comp in PA?
While workers’ compensation applies to most Pennsylvania workers, there are some notable exceptions. In certain industries, such as shipyards and railroads, there are other specialized benefits available. As a result, those employees are not eligible for workers’ comp. Instead, they must get compensation from their industry’s benefits system.
Additionally, independent contractors may not be eligible for workers’ comp in Pennsylvania. This is because they may not be considered employees. For the same reasons, volunteers also do not qualify for benefits. However, the line between ineligible independent contractor and qualifying company employee can often be thin and very fact-specific. Moreover, the law governing this rule changes constantly. This is especially true now, with the rise of the gig economy (companies like Uber and GrubHub) and demands for workers’ rights.
