Seek payment for your workplace accident-related medical expenses

Most Pennsylvania residents likely understand how expensive medical treatment can be. Between medical exams, tests, hospital bills and other costs, people can rack up huge bills in a matter of days. In some cases, a hospital stay can be enough to bankrupt a family. Even families with health insurance often see huge bills from premiums and uncovered expenses.

While medical expenses for any issue can be difficult for a family to deal with, when the expenses are the result of a workplace injury or accident, they can be even more devastating. Victims may find that their entire paycheck is gone from one accident at work. However, in Pennsylvania, there are laws to protect against this outcome.

Workers' compensation laws help to protect workers that have been injured at work. These laws allow workers to receive compensation for the medical expenses they have incurred because of an injury at work. However, in order to receive this compensation, certain procedures must be followed and proper notification must be given to employers.

The rules surrounding workers' compensation can be difficult to understand while victims are trying to deal with a medical crisis. Those affected are trying to focus on their health while fulfilling legal requirements and things can get missed. In order to avoid putting benefits in jeopardy, victims should consider hiring an attorney.

An attorney -- like those in our law firm -- can help people understand how the law applies in their case. Our attorneys can help assert a victim's rights so that their medical and other expenses caused by a workplace accident are paid. Our compassionate attorneys not only understand the law, but what a difficult emotional time this is for most families. However, with skilled representation, victims can focus on their physical and emotional healing while we focus on the legal case.

Butts, after Attorney Kyle Rude argues that the Commonwealth could not prove Ms. Steinbacher was in actual physical control of a motor vehicle. Ms. Steinbacher was arrested after Williamsport City Police believed she switched seats with her boyfriend in order to avoid an arrest for DUI.
