At Martin Law, we represent workers who are hurt in the course and scope of employment. Our Philadelphia independent contractor lawyers work to prove that you are an employee under the law, even if you have been told that you are an independent contractor. Being classified as a contractor or an employee is very important when it comes to your recovery. Our attorneys will work with you to protect your interests.
If you have been hurt while working for your employer, we can help. We only represent employees, never insurance companies. Call 215.587.8400 or contact our Pennsylvania workers’ compensation attorneys by e-mail for a free consultation.
Knowledgeable Independent Contractor Representation
Our law firm has a comprehensive understanding of the Pennsylvania workers’ compensation laws and how they relate to independent contractors and other workers. There are many factors the courts can look to when determining the actual relationship between the parties, including:
- Customs in the industry
- Who supplies the materials used
- Who controls the aspects of the work
- Where the labor is completed
- Who controls the premises where the work is completed
As competent Philadelphia independent contractor lawyers, we know what factors to look for and how to use them to your advantage. Depending on your circumstances, we will strive to prove that you were an employee who is entitled to benefits for your workplace injuries.
Construction and Independent Contractors Workers’ Comp Statutes
Pennsylvania recently passed a new act making it harder for construction firms to define an independent contractor. Being classified as an independent contractor versus an employee makes a big difference in whether or not you are entitled to compensation. As a result of the new act, more people are being defined as independent contractors.
Our construction workers’ compensation attorneys will work with you to build a strong case for you. If you have been injured on the job as an employee, you are entitled to recovery.
