Workers’ Compensation

Representing Injured Pennsylvania Workers and Employees


Dangerous work conditions could cause injury

Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Pennsylvania’s workers’ compensation system was created to protect employees and employers alike by providing workers who get injured on the job with benefits for medical care and wage loss — while at the same time shielding employers from civil lawsuits.

Unfortunately, both the system and the employers who pay into it are often are too quick to deny the claim of an injured worker.

If you have been diagnosed with a work-related medical condition, in an industrial accident, injured while on the job or in the workplace, or while off the premises performing an act for your employer, the attorneys at Schiffman Firm can help you to receive benefits. This starts with three important actions:

  • Seek appropriate medical care.
  • Notify your employer of the accident or medical diagnosis as soon as possible.
  • Contact an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.

At Schiffman Firm, we know how Pennsylvania’s workers’ compensation system is supposed to work and — more importantly — how to make this system work for our clients. As experienced workers’ compensation attorneys, we will protect your rights. We will answer your questions, explain the issues and the process clearly, and prepare you for what to expect as the claim moves forward through the workers’ comp system.

Under Pennsylvania law, the employer is responsible for paying workers’ compensation benefits.

We know the effect that being unable to work may have on you and your family. We know that medical bills and other expenses combined with a loss of income can cause you days and nights of worry. The attorneys at Schiffman Firm are committed to obtaining the maximum amount of compensation to compensate you for your injuries and losses.

There are many causes for work related injuries including defective machinery or defective equipment, unsafe construction sites, incorrectly assembled scaffolding, missing or defective safety features, poorly maintained premises, and employee errors, to list just a few.

Many times work related injuries are caused by a defect in a machine or other product. We handle all types of product liability cases. Other times a poorly maintained parking lot or site can cause you to become injured. The attorneys at Schiffman Firm have vast experience with injuries arising from dangerous premises.

There may be more than one path to compensation available for an injured worker and you may have claims against both your employer and against a third party. A claim against a third party who has caused you to become injured permits you to obtain compensation for additional losses such as pain and suffering. We have nearly a century of legal expertise helping injured workers in Allegheny, Westmoreland, Washington, Butler, Greene, Blair, Cambria, Erie, and other counties in Western and Central Pennsylvania.
