Driven To Help Injured Pennsylvania Workers

Suffering an injury or illness while working can leave you with expensive medical bills and damage your ability to earn an income. You may have the option of recovering benefits through a workers’ compensation claim.

Fortunately, I am here to help you. At Peter J. Pietrandrea Law Office, I devote my career to serving the injured workers of Cranberry Township and the surrounding communities.

How Does Workers’ Compensation Work?

Federal law requires most employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance. If you suffer an injury or illness on the job, you have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim to recover benefits for:

  • Hospital bills
  • Medical treatment
  • Prescription medications
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Vocational training

Unfortunately, the insurance company is on your employer’s side, not yours – you will need an attorney to help you get the benefits you deserve. Even if the insurer has already denied your workers’ compensation claim, you have the right to file an appeal. I can assist you, gathering the necessary evidence, putting together the case and representing you before the appeal board.

Do I Also Have A Third-Party Claim?

Sometimes, a company, individual or another party other than your employer may share fault for the accident that left you injured or ill. In these cases, you may file a third-party personal injury claim against them. This involves suing their insurance provider or suing them directly to recover compensation for your damages. I handle these kinds of third-party claims as well and can help you explore every avenue available for seeking compensation.
