Helping workers file compensation claims in Pennsylvania

According to Pennsylvania law, any worker injured on the job is entitled to workers' compensation. The process of obtaining these benefits is often quite complicated, and can be confusing for an injured worker who is struggling to address pain from the injury.

The Law Offices of Katherine L. Niven & Associates, P.C., reviews hundreds of workers' compensation cases in a year, and over the years the firm has been able to settle 98 percent of these cases successfully, meaning injured workers received the benefits they needed. It is important that an attorney have the insight, usually gained from experience, to handle the various issues arising when a workers' compensation claim is denied.

At our law firm we attempt to work closely with the injured worker to understand the specific issues so the legal options open to client can be outlined and the best possible recommendations given. Specific issues often affect the need for workers' compensation benefits. For instance, an individual already receiving some benefit may be unable to pay medical bills associated with the workplace injury. An attorney may be able to offer advice on how to bridge this financial gap.

Likewise, if the insurance company dispensing the workers' compensation benefits moves to stop payment and settle the case, the right strategy may help the worker make the best decision about how to stop this action. A worker who is not receiving any compensation for a workplace injury may need help in filing a claim for benefits. Workers' compensation can be a complicated matter. Receiving maximum benefits may be possible with the right approach.
