About Workers’ Compensation

Northeastern Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Workers’ compensation law has received many changes over the years. At Caputo & Mariotti, we’ve been there the entire way, fighting for workers who have received many different types of injuries. Our workers’ compensation lawyers have earned a strong reputation for aggressive representation. We completely dedicate ourselves to helping our clients receive the most favorable legal outcomes.

If you received injuries from your job, Pennsylvania law has very strict guidelines about the treatment you receive. Employers quickly question their responsibility for your injuries, and understanding the legal devices in place to protect your health and rights can be overwhelming.

For example, you have a limited amount of time to report a work accident in Pennsylvania, but sometimes, exposure to chemicals or other hazardous working conditions results in illness months and years down the road. A comprehensive investigation of all of your medical records may be needed to establish responsibility. When you do seek treatment for work-related injuries, your employer has control over which medical provider you may visit.

If you do receive care from a Worker’s Compensation physician, ensure your employer has completed the “First Report of Injury” form, and keep detailed notes about the dates, times, and details of all of your doctor appointments. Compensation for missed wages is based on the number of days you are not able to work, and you may never be eligible for full repayment of your lost income. If your injuries are permanent, your employer may be legally required to train you for another job or provide an alternate position, but it may take legal representation to ensure your employer actually provides you with work.

Work-related injuries cause serious medical conditions and require serious medical treatment. It’s important to follow Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation guidelines, but sometimes that isn’t enough, and the help of an experienced attorney is needed.
