If you were injured on the job or suffered a work-related illness, then you could be wondering how you’re going to pay your medical bills, who’s going to cover your lost wages, and how you’re going to support your family. Being injured at your workplace can be frightening, especially if your injury is so severe you are unable to work for an extended period.
According to the United States Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 11 people died in Delaware in 2014, while, in New Jersey, 85 people died due to injuries sustained in the workplace. Pennsylvania had 175 deaths attributed to workplace injury.
In cases of workplace injury, workers’ compensation laws are designed to protect the employee’s income and medical treatment while they are healing from an injury.
