Experienced Legal Counsel For People Suffering Workplace Injuries
Injuries on the job are, unfortunately, a fact of life for many workers. If you have been hurt in an accident or through repetitive strain at work, you should act promptly to protect your right to workers’ compensation benefits. As soon as you know or suspect that you have been injured, you should report the injury to your supervisor or the human resource (HR) department at your company, if applicable. You have the right to necessary medical care and, possibly, other benefits.
At Stine & Associates, P.C., we extend a lifeline of much-needed guidance to many Pennsylvanians who have been injured or become ill in their workplaces. If you fell from a high place, felt back pain when lifting a heavy object or patient, started experiencing numbness that you suspect may be carpal tunnel syndrome or have had debilitating emotional responses to violence in your workplace, we urge you to get legal counsel.

Legal Remedies To Protect Your Right To Medical Care And More
Stine & Associates, P.C., is here to provide you with the professional legal representation you need for all legal issues associated with workplace injuries, as follows:
- Benefit claims and appeals: We will ensure that you receive your rightful workers’ compensation benefits by filing a claim, appealing a denial and/or representing you if the workers’ compensation insurance company stops sending you wage replacement benefits without good reason.
- Third-party liability claims: In addition to workers’ compensation, you may be able to file a third-party injury claim against an equipment manufacturer or another third party other than your employer.
- Lawsuits over unsafe workplace conditions: If your employer was negligently allowing unsafe conditions at your job site, you may be able to bring a lawsuit on that basis. Such cases are uncommon, but we will examine all facts to discover every available source of benefits and compensation for you after a workplace accident.
- Social Security Disability (SSD): If, after an accident on the job, it becomes clear that you will be sidelined as a disabled worker for a year or longer, you may also qualify for SSD benefits.
We can help you determine whether to accept a lump-sum settlement offer from a workers’ compensation insurer and ensure that your settlement is as robust as it should be.
