Workplace Injury Attorneys

Injuries can occur in any type of working environment.

Some of the most common work injuries happen in warehouses, healthcare facilities, and/or involve employees who travel for work, such as sales representatives, visiting nurses or therapists.

Each year thousands of Pennsylvanians are injured at work due to falling objects, lifting, falls from elevated equipment or structures, defective or dangerous equipment, unsafe operation of equipment, motor vehicle collisions, or repetitive work injuries. Injuries can range from herniated discs to broken bones, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, burns, electrocutions, or even death.

Common types of workplace accidents include:

  • Overexertion, including excessive lifting, pushing, pulling, holding, carrying and throwing
  • Slip and falls
  • Bodily reaction injuries, including injuries caused by bending, reaching, climbing, standing, sitting, slipping or tripping without falling
  • Being struck by a falling object
  • Being struck by a forklift or other piece of equipment being operated at the site
  • Repetitive-motion injuries, which are injuries that result from repeated stress or strain on the body
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Being caught by or compressed in a machine
  • Assault or workplace violence

What Our Clients Have To Say

This was my first time working with lawyers for a case and they were awesome. They always kept me in the loop and they explained everything very clearly. Very trustworthy and would recommend to anyone.

On the basis of Mark Altemose’s handling of my personal injury case, I give him my highest recommendation. You simply can’t do better. I was involved in a bicycle accident in a section of the road undergoing construction. My case was complicated for many reasons, and because of the strength of the case that Mark established, the insurance company settled for a monetary amount very close to what Mark predicted. A couple of other reasons for recommending Mark: 1) Mark pursued every possible direction to obtain information providing me with the best likelihood of a positive outcome. 2) Mark could recall extensive knowledge of my case without notes, including a better knowledge of my past medical history than I had. I have no doubt he would have been an incredible trial lawyer if the need had arisen. 3) He, in fact, has won awards from his professional associations for his professional accomplishments; and also “gives back” by serving his professional organizations in a variety of official capacities and by mentoring up-and-coming younger lawyers. He clearly is a leader in his field. 4) It was obvious to me that Mark also has the highest ethical standards.

Will Rambo and his paralegal, Jenna Landis, were absolutely wonderful to work with following a car accident. They always kept me up-to-date with the case, and kindly answered my questions. I’m so grateful for all that they’ve done, and I cannot recommend them enough! Hopefully I won’t be needing their services in the future, but if I do I know I’ll be choosing them to represent me again.
