Injured? Weunderstand whatyou’re going through.

If you have been injured on the job, it’s common to feel like your employer is no longer on your side. The insurance company is not looking out for your interests either. Protecting your rights after a work injury is crucial.

MHK Attorneys represent Workers’ Comp clients in Monroe County and throughout the Lehigh Valley with offices in Pocono Summit, Brodheadsville, and Stroudsburg. We operate on a contingency basis, which means you will owe no fees unless a workers’ compensation attorney collects compensation for you.

We have the resources and knowledge to guide you through even the most complex family law issues, including:

A construction site can resemble a gauntlet designed to hurt people. From heavy machinery and tall scaffolding to small nails and hand tools, there is no shortage of danger in the construction industry. Most construction workers go into their line of work assuming that there will be some bumps and bruises.

The high likelihood of injury does not excuse injuries that happen due to negligence or absolve employers of a responsibility to keep their employees safe. If you have been injured in a construction accident, you can rely on MHK Attorneys to look out for you.

We represent people who have suffered a wide variety of construction site injuries such as:

  • Head injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Joint injuries
  • Toxic exposure
  • Injuries due to falls from heights
  • Crush injuries
  • Repetitive stress injuries

Are You Eligible For A Third-Party Claim?

Someone other than your employer or a co-worker must be responsible or partially responsible for your injury in order to have a viable claim. The most common example is a car accident that happens during the course of your job duties. We can pursue a claim against the third party responsible for the car accident while also helping you obtain your workers’ compensation benefits.

Another common source of third-party claims is defective products. Our lawyers can pursue claims against the manufacturer of a defective forklift, ladder, saw, drill press or another tool that caused you harm.

Was your claim denied? You are not alone. Even people with clear-cut, work-related injuries often have their claims initially denied by insurance agencies. This is when we encourage you to let us put our resources and knowledge to work for you. We can handle all of your interactions with the insurance company to make sure you receive the wage loss and medical benefits you deserve.

Not all injuries happen suddenly. Workers who have a similar routine and job duties on a shift-by-shift basis are far more likely to suffer a repetitive stress injury due to muscles and tendons wearing down over the years. It can be difficult to obtain compensation for them, despite the injuries being completely legitimate and backed by medical documentation.

At MHK Attorneys, we have more than 25 years of experience and have handled more than 10,000 cases involving injured workers in northeast Pennsylvania.

Representing Victims Of Repetitive Stress In The Workplace

We seek to maximize wage loss and medical benefits for workers who suffer from repetitive stress injuries, including:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tendinitis
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Back injuries

These injuries are not always as clear-cut or as easy to demonstrate as more sudden injuries such as broken bones, ruptured discs and crushed limbs. We work closely with medical professionals to document our clients’ work-related injuries and demonstrate the need for benefits.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is an example of a workplace injury that develops over time, rather than through sudden trauma. Workers who are engaged in repetitive activities with their fingers, hands and wrists are at risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome.

Work activities known to sometimes cause or contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome include:

  • Typing or keyboarding
  • Assembly work
  • Butchering meat
  • Sewing

Properly assembled and maintained scaffolding is a wonderful tool when a worker needs to work high in the air on something more stable than a ladder. Scaffolding that has been assembled incorrectly or poorly maintained can enable serious injuries that leave workers without a way to make a living.

It is important to understand your right to workers’ compensation benefits for wage loss and medical expenses if you have been hurt in a scaffolding accident. At MHK Attorneys, we offer injured workers representation from professionals with more than 25 years of experience and 10,000 cases under their belts in northeast Pennsylvania.

Back injuries on the job sometimes happen because of a sudden fall or when a worker is carrying a particularly heavy load. In other cases, back injuries develop over time because of repetitive stress involved in lifting nursing home residents or lying on one’s back while doing electrical work, to name a couple of examples.

Some workers with back injuries are afraid to report those injuries for fear of losing out on necessary income. They may become lax about taking precautions or become used to feeling stressed and fatigued. Sooner or later, however, lumbar degenerative disc disease or a herniated disc leads to chronic pain and disability. Once a back injury sufferer has received a medical opinion that back pain is likely caused by work activity, it is important to report this to the employer.

Ultimately, a back injury will result in:

  • Medical treatment needs, possibly including surgery
  • Lost time from work
  • Ongoing pain and suffering

How A Workers' Compensation Lawyer Can Help You

If you have been injured on the job or if you believe you have developed an occupational disease, such as cancer caused by exposure to toxic chemicals at your workplace, you should get medical attention first. You should also notify your employer that you have been injured or that your doctor has diagnosed you and given you his or her opinion that your work environment caused an illness that you suffer from.

Talking to an attorney should be next on your agenda. Why? Your employer and workers’ compensation insurer want to limit the payout of benefits. A lawyer on your side will share your priorities and watch out for your interests.

To protect your right to recover all benefits you are eligible for, as soon as possible and for as long as you are eligible for them, we encourage you to contact our law firm. We can explain the types of benefits you qualify for and how to get payments underway.

Types of benefits include:

  • Temporary total disability (TTD) benefits to be paid for as long as you are unable to work; calculated as a percentage of your average weekly wages (AWW) before your injury
  • Partial disability benefits if you are able to earn wages, but have not fully recovered from your work injury
  • Specific loss benefits, if you suffer an amputation or loss of use of body parts such as fingers, toes, a hand, a foot, or loss of hearing or vision
  • Medical expenses, with no time limit
  • In some cases, travel expenses to and from medical providers if you have to travel outside your local community for treatment not available in your community
  • Death benefits for eligible survivors, including a widow or widower and dependent children (minors or full-time students until age 23)
