Answers to Your Workers' Compensation Questions
Helping You Figure Out Your Pennsylvania Work Comp Claim
Most people who come to us have never worked with an attorney before. We understand that right now, the list of things you don't know is much longer than the list of things you do know. You might not even know which questions you're supposed to ask first.

We can answer those right now. Contact us for a free legal consultation and we'll let you know if we think you have a case.

We're available 24/7, so call us at 412-394-1000 or fill out your information in the form to the right.
And here's the short answer to the question "How Much Does it Cost?": You won't owe us a single penny unless and until we win your case.
If your doctor releases you to light-duty work but your employer does not have a light-duty job available, you can continue to receive your Pennsylvania workers' compensation payments.
If your employer has a light-duty job available for you, the activities needed to perform the job would have to be approved by your doctor. If the light-duty job pays less than what you made before you were injured, you would be entitled to receive partial disability payments.
Even after you return to your job, workers' compensation will continue to pay any reasonable and necessary medical expenses related to your work injury. In addition, your workers' compensation payments may start again if:
- You are laid off
- You are fired without cause
- Your doctor takes you off work again while you are on light-duty work
