Workers' Compensation & On-the-Job Injuries
It doesn’t matter what field you work in or the type of work you perform – you may be at risk of suffering work-related injuries in accidents, as a result of hazardous exposure, or even in the regular performance of your job duties. Workers in construction, transportation, and manufacturing are at risk of suffering injuries in serious accidents due to the physical nature of their jobs, but even a person who sits at a desk all day could develop carpal tunnel syndrome from working on a computer.
The team at Knafo Law Offices is passionate about helping workers in Pennsylvania who have been injured on the job or diagnosed with occupational illnesses. We handle workers’ compensation issues with professionalism and an attention to detail that enables us to properly present our clients’ claims to pursue their rightful benefits.
