Coping with a work-injury may be a tremendous hardship. Especially those injuries that cause pain for an extended period such as three months or more. It is common for those who suffer from chronic pain to experience stress and depression compounded by the inability to function at 100% and earn regular income. For 113 years, Powell Law has represented all types of workers in workers’ compensation cases. The attorneys and staff of Powell Law are experienced in helping injured workers cope with their situation and look forward, rather than backward, to a better life.
Dealing with a work injury may take some time but there is relief for this unfortunate, compromising situation. The Pennsylvania legislature created the workers’ compensation system to benefit workers injured in the workplace. Although it may be difficult, maintaining patience is key for anyone injured on the job. Any obsession with the past brings an emotional cost. It is much better in the long-term to stay positive and focus on future events such as the return to work and the performance of normal, everyday activities.
Employees injured on the job can take solace knowing that their personal experience and injury may help make work conditions safer for fellow employees. Injured workers reporting accurate and complete details of their accident to their employer promotes better workplace safety. Employers have a responsibility to investigate incidents in the workplace that result in injury, or which may potentially result in injury. Reporting an accident helps identify, eliminate or control hazardous workplace conditions and reduce the potential for future injury or illness.
