Workplace Accidents

Fighting for Your Benefits after an On-the-Job Accident

Employers have a responsibility to their employees to maintain a safe working environment free of hazards. If they breach standard safety protocol or negligently ignore hazardous situations and an employee injures him or herself, the employer can be held liable. Workplace accident litigation is challenging, so it takes an exceptional legal team to handle these claims. John Vlasac and Boris Shmaruk have the skill and experience necessary to successfully handle workplace injury cases on behalf of injured victims. Contact our workplace accident attorneys in Pennsylvania and New Jersey to schedule a free consultation.

About Workplace Injuries

Workplace injuries include any injury or illness that arises from performing a job-related duty. Accidents in the workplace are frequently caused by unsafe conditions (e.g., defective equipment, exposure to hazardous chemicals, or unsafe premises) and from performing the same repetitive or strenuous movements, such as the heavy lifting associated with construction work. Other common causes of workplace accidents include untrained, reckless, or negligent employees (or supervisors) who ignore safety guidelines.

Examples of on-the-job injuries include:

  • Falling from a ladder or scaffolding and suffering a head, neck, or spinal cord injury
  • A burn injury as the result of contact with a toxic chemical
  • Fracturing a bone while working with a heavy piece of equipment
  • Paralysis from a slip-and-fall accident in an unsafe working environment
  • Developing mesothelioma from extended exposure to asbestos
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome from typing on an keyboard without proper ergonomic protection

How Our Workplace Accident Attorneys Can Help

According to federal law, employers are required to provide worker’s compensation benefits to employees injured in a workplace accident. These benefits allow the victim to recover and heal from his or her injury and alleviate the financial pressures created by medical bills and temporary loss of income. However, the process of filing for and obtaining the appropriate amount of benefits is not always straightforward; certain employees may run into obstacles while pursuing the compensation to which they are entitled. The paperwork is complicated, and some insurance companies try their best to avoid paying out claims.

If you have questions about filing for worker’s compensation benefits, Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA), Federal Workers Compensation Act (FECA) or your claim has been unfairly denied or ignored, our workplace accident attorneys can help. With extensive knowledge of the applicable laws and guidelines for obtaining workers’ compensation, FELA and FECA benefits, we will fight on your behalf for the benefits you are owed – allowing you to concentrate on your recovery. Timeliness is important in workplace accident cases, so it’s critical to contact our legal team as soon as possible after the incident.

    About 4 months ago my wife got a job that came with housing. After going over all details and making plans for about 4 months prior to moving with management we packed up our whole lives, our pets, dropped some side jobs we had, and moved … More to the property where the job was located. After a few weeks things started getting very strange with management and "team" and after 2 full months everything that was planned in detail prior to moving to this property fell apart. After trying to discuss in person with management and then trying to discuss through email with management my wife was fired and we were given 5 days to pack up and leave the property. We had to start our lives over again. We immediately contacted Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC and worked with Ryan Getz & David Cassidy who are absolutely incredible at what they do! They were able to help us get off the property in a reasonable way and receive a settlement for all trouble caused by this "business". This was an incredibly stressful and scary situation but David and Ryan stayed in contact with us, were extremely patient, professional, soothing and just overly fantastic. If you are having any type of issue with an employement situation and being treated unfairly I highly recommend working with Ryan & David! I am so thankful they were able to take our case and help us through that mess. This was our first time having to hire legal help and I am just so grateful we found David and Ryan. In the future should we need any additional legal help we will absolutely be contacting them again. Thank you both so much!

    My wife and I were involved in a motor vehicle accident. Vlasac and Shmaruk took care of everything. They walked us through the process and took care of all the paperwork. They reached a settlement and we were happy. Glad to put that … More behind us and glad we used Vlasac and Shmaruk to help us get the money we needed for a new car and to get our medical bills paid. Thanks for everything you did!!!!
