381 Questions Answered

Q. Hello, I was attacked at work and got bitten, I’m a CNA. I want file for emotional distress/pain and suffering.
A: I am sorry to hear of your injury. Assuming this is a Pennsylvania case, your potential benefits would likely be confined to workers' compensation which would only cover related wage loss and related medical bills. If you suffered a psychological injury as a result of this attack, treatment for that condition may be covered by workers' compensation. Workers' compensation does not provide for any payment in regard to pain and suffering or emotional distress. I would suggest that you contact a local workers' compensation attorney as soon as possible to review your claim.
Q. Workmans comp settlement severe tbi
A: Since you are a represented party, no one on here can ethically provide you with legal advice. I can tell you that your lawyer is in the best position to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your case. If you are not confident in your attorney, you are free to change attorneys. However, if you do change attorneys, the new attorney would need to learn the file which could delay your case or result in a less favorable outcome. I would suggest that you schedule an appointment with your current attorney to discuss your questions and obtain a full explanation of why they are recommending settlement.
Q. Does liability insurance coverage, cover wage compensation or just medical?
A: This may be a workers' compensation claim despite the fact that you were not on the clock. It would depend on why you were at the facility at the time of the accident. Since workers' compensation pays both wage loss and medical, I would suggest that you call a workers' compensation attorney first to determine whether or not you have a workers' compensation claim.
