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.
Like most things in life, it's best to start with the basics. If you're buying a new house, you have to figure out your budget before you can start your hunt. If you've been hurt on the job, the most important questions are:
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. You won't be obligated to use our services, and you can ask us any questions you have about your Pennsylvania workers' compensation claim. We're available 24/7, so call us at 1-866-943-3427 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 you feel that your employer is trying to force you back to work even though the company doctor doesn't think you're ready, chances are that your company will drop the pressure.
However, if the company doctor says you're ready to return but your own doctor disagrees, you can refuse to return to work. Though your employer may file a "Petition to Terminate, Modify, or Suspend Benefits," your payments won't change until a judge reviews your case.
If your own doctor feels you're ready to return to work, but you disagree and refuse to return to your job, be aware that there is a good chance you will lose your workers' compensation coverage.
If one or more of these situations apply to you, it's important that you contact a workers' compensation attorney right away. A lawyer can help you figure out if it's in your best interest to return to work. We can help with a no obligation, free legal evaluation. Just fill out the form at the top right of the page.
