If you have ever been injured at work then you know what I am talking about. A majority of employers feel that an injured worker is nothing more than a liability. The old excuse is, ” Insurance premiums will go up and it will take more employees away from their jobs to cover the injured worker. ” This narrow minded thought process is despicable and inexcusable. Employers forget about all of the hard work and dedication that the employee exhibited before his/her injury. The concept of loyalty only goes so far after a work injury. Some of my clients have been on the job for twenty (20) years, only to see there position be given to a younger cheaper employee after a work injury. I know two employers that wait for long standing employees to get injured so they can cross them off of their list of highly compensated employees. The fact is injured workers deserve more. The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act is supposed to make you whole again but it can never replace the blood, sweat and tears you have shed for your employer over the years. For all of the injured workers who feel neglected and used, your not alone. The lawyers of Krasno Krasno & Onwudinjo will stand beside you and fight for everything you are entitled to.
