Paula Robinson's Blog for Workers Compensation & Disability

Building/Construction

Did you know that there are over 72,000 building and construction companies in PA?  From wood framers, building repair carpenters, interior finish carpenters, painting contractors, bricklayers, roofers, electricians, to plumbers, they can all suffer disabling work injuries from falling, lifting, carrying, being struck by a variety of objects, overexertion, heart attacks, or noise injuries, just to name a few.  Robinson Law has handled many claims that are catastrophic in nature and can advise you on your specific claim to ensure you are getting the necessary treatment and benefits you and yours deserve.

Firefighters/Medics/Police

These brave workers risk their lives everyday while in the line of duty.  Typical work-related accidents can include motor vehicle accidents, falls from elevations, overexertion, shooting accidents, as well as broken bones, burns, and scarring. 

Robinson Law is very versed with these types of injuries and can advise if you have a potential 3rd party lawsuit against another entity, in addition to your employer.  She can also advise if you are entitled to additional workers’ compensation benefits, besides the usual indemnity and medical benefits
