There are 1000’s of warehouse workers across PA, and no matter what they house, injuries routinely occur.  These can be slip, trip, and fall injuries at the same level or elevated levels.  Also common are forklift and similar equipment injuries, as well as lifting injuries. Workers Compensation Attorney Paula Robinson is familiar with these types of injuries. She understands and delivers the results you and your family need.  Some injuries can even be fatal.  Often times these injuries need immediate attention, and follow-up treatment.

Drilling Rigs

The Marcellus Shale Natural Gas drilling has begun in earnest in many counties in PA, including, but not limited to, Williamsport, Monroe, Luzerne, Lackawanna, and Bradford.  The fracking process can be dangerous. Whether you have been injured while on the job, on or off a drill site, you need an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer on your side who understands this type of work.
Drilling rig injuries or deaths can occur from heavy equipment or truck accidents, chemical exposure, fires, explosions, or other freak accidents.

Psychological Injuries

Under the PA Workers’ Compensation Act, disabilities caused by mental or psychological factors may be considered to be compensable injuries if the other elements necessary to establish a claim are met, and are in 3 specific categories.  These are:

  • Psychological stimulus causing physical injury-mental/physical
  • Psychological stimulus causing psychic injury-mental/mental
  • Physical stimulus causing psychic injury-physical/mental
  • These cases are very fact specific and can be difficult to win.
