A Workers’ Compensation Attorney in Philadelphia PA You Can Trust
When you’ve been hurt at work or become sick as a result of something related to your job, your first priority is to get better. Unfortunately medical expenses can add up pretty quickly, and sometimes injured or sick employees can’t work to keep their income coming in. That is why workers’ compensation or what some people call, “workers comp” was created – to help provide income and reimbursement.
What is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ comp is a type of insurance that most employers are required to purchase to cover their employees’ costs in case of a work-related injury or illness. It has the benefit of providing the cost of expenses and loss of income for the worker who has been hurt as well as protecting the employer from costly litigation.
Most employers honor their obligations to pay workers’ compensation claims, but occasionally a company or their workers’ compensation insurance company will deny the valid claim submitted by their employees. When that happens it can be frustrating and frightening, but it doesn’t need to be. When you have an experienced workers compensation attorney on your side, you have nothing to worry about. Philadelphia workers comp attorney Christian Petrucci is one of the leading authorities in the Philadelphia region on Workers’ Comp law, and he is here to help you with your workers’ compensation claim.
