Recovering just compensation after an workplace injury
North central and northeastern Pennsylvania have become home to many new gas jobs thanks to the discovery of the natural gas contained in the Marcellus Shale Formation. The new industry has brought some new wealth to the region, but it has also brought a lot of devastation to the individuals that are harmed while working on these dangerous job sites. Our Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation lawyers at McCann Dillon Jaffe & Lamb, LLC, force employers accountable for the injuries caused by law safety standards and the avoidance of regulatory compliance. We are dedicated to recovering full and fair compensation for injured plaintiffs and the families of wrongful death victims.
The cause for natural gas company liability in the workplace
Natural gas companies bring in countless millions of dollars in profits every quarter. Despite the high profit margins, management is constantly looking to cut costs rather than ways to make the inherently dangerous workplaces safer. Employers have a moral and legal duty to maintain safe workplaces. Your employer is financially responsible to compensate you for any injuries you suffer on the job. Our Philadelphia natural gas company worksite injury lawyers have recovered numerous multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts from companies that have failed to live up to their safe workplace duties.
Damages you can recover for an injury while working for a natural gas company in Pennsylvania
You are entitled to recover more than just the medical expenses you incur from an injury at your job. Compensation for an injury at a natural gas plant depends on a Philadelphia personal injury lawyer you entrust to protect your financial security. Every type of damages you receive from a settlement or verdict must be convincingly proven before the court. Anything your attorney does not prove leaves you uncompensated. Our attorneys fight for every type of injuries for you and your family. You can recover damages for:
- Emotional distress
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of enjoyment
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Past and future medical fees
- Punitive damages (in some cases)
