Injured on the job in Gettysburg? We can help
Nearly every employer in Pennsylvania must carry workers’ compensation insurance. This insurance provides certain benefits, like medical care and wage replacement, to employees injured during the scope of their job duties. Employers provide these benefits to injured workers regardless of who or what caused their injuries, and in return employees cannot directly sue an employer for their accident.
The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act is designed to help injured workers more easily gain access to medical care, as well as eliminate the stress of lost wages while recovering from their injuries. However, this system does not always work as advertised, and many employees find themselves fighting for the benefits they rightfully deserve. If you find yourself in this situation, the Gettysburg workers’ compensation attorneys at KGB Injury Law can help.
We can investigate why your claim was delayed, denied, or terminated, and work to make things right. Our lawyers are experienced in appeals and hearings, and understand how to build a strong case on your behalf, using evidence from your medical records and expert witnesses.

Strategic representation after Gettysburg car, truck, and motorcycle accidents
Gettysburg is a great place to live, work, and visit – with the historic Gettysburg Battlefield, numerous museums, Gettysburg College, and Route 30 running right through town, the streets are crowded with vehicles and pedestrians alike. Although this makes for a busy and bustling atmosphere, it also puts you at risk for injury in a motor vehicle accident. If you or a loved one suffer harm from a negligent driver, look to the attorneys at KBG Injury Law for legal help.
Our years of experience practicing law have taught us an important lesson – the insurance company is not your friend. In an effort to protect their own bottom line, insurance companies often attempt to take advantage of accident victims while they are still traumatized and overwhelmed by their injuries. We can step in and protect your rights when you suffer serious injuries in:
- Car accidents. Driver negligence can include anything from driving while distracted, texting and driving, drunk driving, speeding or reckless driving, failure to follow the rules of the road, or sleeping at the wheel. No matter the type of crash, our attorneys will advocate for you and determine who (or what) was at fault for your injuries.
- Motorcycle accidents. Because motorcycles do not offer the same level of protection as passenger cars and trucks, bikers tend to suffer more devastating injuries in accidents. In many cases, negligent and careless motorists cause motorcycle accidents when they fail to share the road properly. We can help ensure you secure the financial compensation you need to recover from your injuries.
- Bicycle and pedestrian accidents. Bicyclists and pedestrians are at even more risk, as they have virtually no protection in the event they are struck by a car or truck. They often suffer catastrophic or even fatal injuries in these types of accidents. If you or a loved one were hurt while out walking or cycling, talk to the Gettysburg attorneys at KBG Injury Law today.
- Truck accidents. Accidents with commercial trucks and tractor-trailers often cause devastating injuries to the occupants of the other vehicle. Truck accident claims can be complex, due to potential liable parties and the severity of a victim’s injuries, including pain and suffering. Our lawyers ensure all negligent parties are held accountable, as well as seek maximum possible compensation for life-altering injuries.
KBG Injury Law also handles injury claims involving accidents with buses, trains, boats, electric scooters, ATVs, and buggies.

We seek out the services of a physician to get better, not worse. Doctors, surgeons, and other medical professionals have a duty to protect our health to the best of their ability.
