If you’ve been injured at work, you likely have a long list of questions like, “Should I tell my boss?” “Will I lose my job?” and “Should I go back to work this week?” The team at Muller Brazil is here to be your advocate. We’ll thoroughly investigate the accident, help you to submit your workers’ compensation claim, and ensure that you are treated fairly after a workplace incident.
We can help if you’ve been injured on the job:
If you’ve been hurt at work, you may be concerned about telling your supervisor for fear that you will lose your job. Rest assured, under OSHA (The Federal Occupational Safety & Health Act of 1970) it is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you in any way or try to fire you after you’ve filed a workers’ compensation claim. If you’ve been injured at work, it is critical that you immediately notify your supervisor of your injury. Then contact the team at Muller Brazil to defend your employee rights.
What to do if you’ve been injured on the job:
It may be possible to sue a third party for your accident. In a legal case against a third party, we set out to prove that the party violated federal OSHA requirements at the jobsite. Get in touch with Muller Brazil so we can investigate the accident and see if you have a case.
Here are third parties that may be liable for your injury:
In most cases, workers in Pennsylvania are not allowed to sue their employer for their injury. Instead, you file a workers’ compensation claim to receive your benefits. However, it is possible to sue your employer if: Your employer fails to provide workers’ compensation benefits, or if you’ve been fired or have experienced discrimination in response to your claim, you can file a wrongful termination lawsuit against your employer. Contact Muller Brazil to find out how.
Even if the accident was your fault, under Pennsylvania law, you may still submit a claim for workers’ compensation. Your employer is required to pay your workers’ compensation benefits, regardless of whose fault the accident was.
Contact the team at Muller Brazil and tell us about the incident, your injury, and steps you’ve taken after the accident. We’ll help you decide if it’s wise to return to work.
In Pennsylvania, workers’ compensation covers medical bills and lost wages. It’s best to think of workers’ compensation as repayment for the hard costs of healthcare and your missed paychecks. Pennsylvania law excludes pain and suffering from workers’ compensation claims. In other words, emotional stress and physical pain are not covered.
We’ve seen many instances where a workers’ compensation claim was denied but the employee is too injured to return to work. If you’re not sure what to do, get in touch with Muller Brazil today to find out how we can help.

Sandra, Muller Brazil Client
I'm so thankful that I chose Muller Brazil to represent me. My attorney took time to answer my questions prior to even asking for his representation, and as the case progressed - he was impeccable at responding and keeping me up to date. They really brought a personal touch to my case.

From the first conversation, Mr. Brazil was professional and clear about the process of filing and documenting an injury claim. His advice proved to be invaluable, and he was always accessible when I needed help during the process. I would not hesitate to recommend the Muller Brazil team.
Billy, Muller Brazil Client
Very seldom do you have the pleasure of dealing with an attorney like Ms. Mancuso. I found her attention to detail excellent and her willingness to share her time to make sure I completely understood the process remarkable. Ms. Mancuso was always available to take my phone calls and quick to reply to my emails. Most importantly, she guided me all the way through the process to see that I got a fair and equitable settlement. I could not have been more pleased!

I can't express how much gratitude I have to the Muller Brazil team.
Wendy, Muller Brazil Client
Ms Senerth took the burden of filing a claim for me, kept me informed of progress, and even advised that I decline the first offer. Ms Senerth told me how to collect affidavits and she used that info to get me a larger settlement. Highly recommended!
