Work-Related Loss Of Use Injuries 

When an injured worker suffers "loss of use," he or she is typically unable to use an arm, shoulder, leg or foot to perform duties of a job.

Pennsylvania workers' compensation law states that financial compensation should be offered to these injury victims in the form of wage and medical benefits, depending on the body part affected, the severity of the injury and whether it amounts to a disability.

Doylestown Loss Of Limb Attorney Joseph DeRita Protects Your Rights

Workers who are permanently injured on the job are said to have suffered "schedule loss of use." This term requires that a doctor state a percentage of loss of use that has been sustained to a particular body part or limb. This determination will translate into a number of weeks' worth of workers' compensation benefits, and then multiplied by a statutory maximum weekly benefit. The final number dictated by this formula will amount to a total lump-sum award, minus benefits already received.

When your employer's insurance carrier attempts to claim that you suffered a lower percentage of loss than you actually did during your work accident, Joseph DeRita will be there with the facts, on your behalf. His track record of success shows that he knows how to handle a workers' compensation dispute, how to counter an insurer's claims and present a compelling case. From start to finish of your case, he puts his skill and experience to work for you, to provide your best chance of receiving the financial relief you need.
