Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Lawyers Are Prepared to Help Injured Workers During the Holiday Season

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Dec 1, 2011) - The Pennsylvania workers' compensation attorneys of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C. are prepared to help individuals who have been injured on the job this holiday season. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry, seasonal and part-time employees may be eligible for workers' compensation with very few exceptions. Many businesses take on seasonal workers during the winter holiday season, with the largest temporary hires in the retail and package-delivery industries. Despite their impermanent status with the company or store, seasonal employees in these fields may be entitled to workers' compensation if they are injured on the job.

Because of the increased traffic in the shipping industry, the United Parcel Service (UPS) takes on many seasonal employees during this time of year. According to a New York Daily News report, UPS plans to add 55,000 seasonal jobs to help with the increase in package deliveries.

Because of the physical demands placed on parcel service employees during the holiday season, accidents and injuries may cause lasting health problems for seasonal workers. The Pennsylvania workers' compensation attorneys of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C. are prepared to help injured workers with their workers' compensation claims.
