Types of Injuries

Work injuries can often times wreck havoc on an injured worker physically, emotionally, and financially.   They often lead to loss in wages, significant medical bills, and potentially the inability to continue to perform work as in the past.   The extent of the injury does not matter.  You may be entitled to benefits under the Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Act is you are injured on the job.

These rights and benefits are too valuable.  Don’t trust your employer, the insurance adjuster, or your insurance carrier’s attorney.  Trust your own Attorney!  You can Count on Mooney to protect those rights and benefits.  Our experience speaks for itself.  At Mooney & Associates, we have a full workers compensation litigation practice.  And, as always, we not only offer a FREE consultation, but all our appointments in workers compensation are FREE.   Our fees are contingent.  That means you will not pay us anything out of pocket.  We only get paid if YOU get paid.

So what types of injuries do we handle?

Easy answer.  All of them.  But, let’s the main ones we see over and over again.

Traumatic Injuries:

Back injuries (Both, low back and upper back, disc herniations, SI joint injuries)

Neck Injuries (Strains, disc herniations, and more)

Both of the above may also include extensive nerve injuries)

Shoulder injuries (Rotator Cuff injuries, Labrum Injuries, AC Joint injuries, Strains, Impingement, and more)

Knee Injuries

Arm Injuries

Hip Injuries

Head Injuries (including concussions and post concussion syndrome)

Abdominal Injuries (including hernias)

Amputations and Loss of Use injuries

Injuries that result in tragic death

Repetitive Injuries:

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Epicondylitis

Tendonitis

Aggravation of Pre–Existing Conditions:

Many times, injured workers find out they had pre-existing arthritis in their bank, neck, shoulder, or knee, and they never even knew it, until they are injured at work.  Other times, an injured worker knew they had a pre-existing condition, such as a prior surgery years ago, but that they recovered from that condition and it hasn’t bothered them.  Yet, the workers compensation insurance carrier denies the claim because of the pre-existing condition or the presence of arthritis.  Fact is they are new injuries and they are compensable under the Act.
