Types of Injuries in Workers’ Compensation Claims

Helping Injured Clients Since 1996

Many people who have suffered injuries at work wonder what types of injuries are covered and what compensation is available. If you have never been through this legal process before, it is important to work with a law firm you can trust to protect your rights and interests in the workers’ compensation process.

At Schemery Zicolello, we represent clients in Central Pennsylvania, including Williamsport. The lawyers from our firm handle all types of work-related injuries, including burn injuries, loss of limb and other injuries that keep employees from returning to work or working in the same job they had previously.

Our attorneys can help you understand the types of injuries that are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, including:

  • Standard workers’ compensation injuries: Any injury that keeps you from working can be eligible for a workers’ comp claim.
  • Specific loss claims: There are certain types of claims in the workers’ compensation system, called specific loss claims, that involve amputations or the loss of the ability to use certain body parts. Depending on the body part lost, there are different schedules of compensation available.
  • Disfigurement: Compensation is also available for certain types of scarring and other types of disfigurement of the face, head or neck.

There are specific rules and limitations regarding obtaining compensation for various types of injuries in the workers’ comp system. An attorney from our firm can explain your rights and options and walk you through the entire process to obtain the best compensation award available.
