If you are injured on-the-job in York County, you have a right to expect the same quality of care from your employer. Whether you work in packaging, refrigeration, cooling and heating, manufacturing, electronics, food, or construction, it is likely that your injury will qualify for PA Workers’ Compensation benefits. These benefits cover your medical costs and part of your wages if you are injured at work.

Manufacturing Injuries

Manufacturing workers are more likely to suffer an injury than workers with other types of jobs. This isn’t surprising. Many manufacturing workers must use dangerous machinery and tools to do their job. But, machinery accidents aren’t the only cause of on-the-job injury. Day-to-day work can cause occupational illnesses such as job-related hearing loss, skin conditions, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
