If you have been injured on the job, you most likely have questions that you need answered:
- How do I pay my bills with no paycheck coming in?
- What do I do if I can't return to work?
- Where do I go for medical treatment?
At NGP Law, we have been serving injured Pennsylvania workers for over 100 years.

We have demonstrated time and time again that we will do what it takes to get everything you are entitled to regarding workplace injuries, medical treatment and in many cases Social Security Disability.
By PA law, your employer must carry Workers' Compensation insurance in case you get injured on the job, become ill from something that happened at a job site, or if death results from a work injury. Workers insurance as well as workers comp insurance are often misused terms. Benefits can include medical expenses, lost wages, and death benefits. Workers' Compensation is a no-fault insurance system. Negligence on the part of the worker or employer is not an issue in paying benefits. Sometimes, however, there is a third party who may have been negligent and a separate action can be filed against this party.
As long as your injury is job related, it is covered.
A workmen compensation injury could range from your head to your toe. There are many types of work related injuries. Some of the common types of Workmans Comp injuries are: broken or fractured bones, back or neck injury, wrist injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, eye injury, hearing loss, work induced heart attacks, reactions to toxic materials, breathing problems from exposure to asbestos, smoke inhalation, burns from hazardous materials, and scars.
