Filing a Workers' Compensation Petition? We Can Help

There are a number of different petitions that you may need to file during the Pennsylvania workers' compensation process. These petitions address a range of issues, from filing a claim, to reviewing medical information, to approving a lump sum settlement.

We guarantee that your employers' insurance company understands everything about these petitions – when to file them, how to file them, and the deadlines they must meet. Going up against that level of knowledge on your own is a big risk. Your employer and their insurance company won't tell you what to expect. They won't tell you how to protect your rights. They won't tell you what they're doing and why.

We will.

If you hire us, we'll tell you what we need to do to build the strongest case possible. We'll file any necessary petitions, keep track of deadlines, and make sure you understand what's happening every step of the way.

We know that the work comp system can be confusing and you probably have questions about your claim. Take advantage of our no obligation, free legal consultation. We'll talk about your claim and let you know if we think you have a case. Call us at 412-394-1000 or fill out the form to the right.
