City and State Employee Accident Lawyers in Pennsylvania
When you think of workplace accidents, you probably don’t consider city and state employment as being a dangerous profession. However, city and state employees include professions like police officers, meter readers, electricians and other professions that deal with dangerous situations.
Unlike private sector employees, an injured city or state employee must deal with a public entity when it comes to collection workers’ compensation benefits. In many cases, the use of city and state employee accident lawyers are critical in obtaining benefits owed under workers’ compensation.

Types of Government Worker Injuries
Because there are so many different city and state employee positions, injuries can be varied. Falls, slips and trips are the most reported injuries to city and state employees and the majority of these are falls on the same level. This could be an injury that occurred when an employee slipped on a wet floor or in an icy parking lot leading to strains, sprains or broken bones.
City and state employees also suffer injury when struck by or pushed against an object or when they are caught in machinery. These types of accidents can lead to head trauma, loss of limbs or other severe injuries. Overexertion and repetitive motion also cause injuries that could require city and state employee accident lawyers to become involved.
