    What happens when you get injured at work in York, PA?

    The PA Workers’ Compensation System comes into effect in York, PA whenever an employee or worker gets hurt at their job. The system is put in place to ensure worker safety and the protection of their livelihood in case of a workplace injury or illness.

    Under this system, all injured workers in York, PA are entitled to receive certain benefits in case of work-related injuries or illnesses. These benefits include:

    Medical Benefits

    Medical Benefits

    Your employer’s insurance pays for your medical expenses for the work-related injury.

    Wage Loss Compensation

    In cases of fatal work injuries, the deceased worker’s dependents receive lump-sum death benefits.

    Can I Sue my employer for Negligence due to a workplace injury in York, PA?

    The simple answer is no. Your sole remedy in the vast majority of cases is pursuing Workers’ Compensation.

    Workers’ compensation in York, PA functions on a no-fault system. Meaning, regardless of who has caused the injury, whether it was the employer’s negligence or the employee’s own fault, or no one’s fault, the injured worker is entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits.

    While this means you legally cannot hold your employer accountable for the harm in a personal injury case (also called a “Third Party Case”) it also goes in your favor by demanding your employer pay you compensation even if your own fault has caused you injury.

    If you have any questions about your case, call us today for a free and comprehensive analysis. You don’t pay us anything out of your own pocket- it’s a contingent fee system.

    "I recently had a work related injury and was receiving Workers' Compensation (medical benefits only). Soon after I was fired, so I contacted Paul Silver at Cardamone Law Firm who did an excellent job in getting me financially compensated in a fairly short amount of time. Paul and his assistant Shirley always responded to any questions I had about the case in a very short amount of time. Thank you for helping me with this difficult case."

    "Mike Cardamone is amazing. He is "hands down" one of the best lawyers I've ever had the privilege of knowing. He is very kind, understanding, knowledgeable in his field, always very thorough and helpful. He was extremely professional and someone who truly cares about his clients. I felt completely at ease with him. He was a pleasure to work with, explained everything in detail, as well as answered all my questions with knowledge and care. If you want someone you can trust, who communicates every step of the way, will fight for you and make sure you win your case, he is it! I will refer all my family and friends to him. Thank you so much Mike, for everything. I appreciate all your hard work and dedication in helping me."

You never once made me feel like I was one of a hundred other clients. I always knew you had my back! You answered calls and emails at all hours. You fought every fight for me so I only had to worry about getting well. Behind your nice, calm face there’s a pit bull ready to take on any employer or judge. I can never thank you enough."
