Most people who get hurt at work understand that they have a right to lost wages and medical expenses through the Pennsylvania workers' compensation system. In our experience, injured workers are less likely to understand their right to damages in personal injury litigation.
At Scaringi Law, our lawyers help people hurt in workplace accidents get the compensation they need under every available approach, not just the most obvious ones. Contact our Harrisburg workers' compensation attorneys in Newport, Harrisburg, and throughout Pennsylvania.

Comprehensive Advice About The Full Range Of Your Rights
The workers' compensation system represents a legislative compromise between the interests of workers and their employers. From the accident victim's perspective, the advantage is a relatively quick path to benefits without the need to prove negligence on anyone's part. The downside is the limited scope of losses you can expect to recover. Additionally, you can't sue your own employer or a fellow employee for damages related to a workplace accident — workers' comp will normally be your only option.
Nevertheless, there are many situations where an accident on the job will support both a workers' comp claim and a personal injury lawsuit against a third party for negligence. The most common example involves motor vehicle accidents where the injured driver was driving a delivery van, maintenance truck or even an 18-wheeler. Other workplace accidents supporting the right to personal injury damages might involve dangerous property conditions, defective machinery or safety equipment, or falls at construction sites.
Our Harrisburg workers' comp attorneys can investigate and pursue your negligence claims against the driver at fault while you're collecting workers' comp benefits.

There are many types of work-related injuries that can result in a workers’ compensation claim. Here are some of the most common injuries:
- Sprains and strains
