Why are workers' compensation claims denied?

Workers' compensation provides injured individuals with financial support when they suffer harm due to their jobs. A worker should not experience detrimental effects to their health when they perform tasks for their employer, and as such their employer should compensate them when that harm keeps them out of work. However, getting workers' compensation requires satisfying certain requirements and from time to time Butler residents may see their applications denied.

Preventing falls in the workplace

There are a number of reasons that Pennsylvania residents may lose their balance and fall. Often individuals trip over items in front of them or slip on wet or icy surfaces. When a person suffers a fall on the property of another individual, the victim may have rights to compensation through premises liability theories of law. When an employee suffers a fall-related injury while at work, they may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits.

What is workers' compensation?

If a Pennsylvania resident sustains injuries due to another person's careless actions or negligent conduct then the victim may have the right to sue the other party in order to reclaim their losses. However, most workers do not have this option when it is the carelessness or negligence of their employers that causes their harm. That is because the state has a workers' compensation system in place to streamline the process of getting hurt workers the help that they need.
