Pennsylvania residents probably know that a worker who suffers injuries resulting from a workplace accident has certain legal rights. These include getting the reasonable and required medical treatment for their workplace injury, having the choice of doctor after 90 days of treatment, having the choice of surgeon if surgery is needed within the first 90 days of treatment and the right to receive workers’ compensation claim in a timely manner.
In many workplace accident cases employers and insurance companies try to avoid paying the injured worker. Insurance companies use their own doctors in order to cut costs. They may use their own witnesses in order to deprive an injured worker of workers’ compensation benefits. In this situation, an injured worker has a legal right to seek justice from a court.
Our law firm has helped many workers get justice and obtain the benefits that they deserve. We have experienced the difficulties that an injured worker’s family goes through. Our staff works hard to attempt to ensure that an injured worker gets the proper medical treatment and other applicable benefits.
After taking an injured worker’s case, we carefully examine all aspects and, depending on the circumstances surrounding injured worker’s injury, we attempt to help them obtain all applicable benefits that may include temporary total disability benefits, permanent partial disability benefits, specific loss and disfigurement benefits and medical benefits. We work on a contingency basis and we do not take any fee until we are able to win compensation for an injured worker.
