Obviously when you’ve been injured on the job, getting medical treatment is your first concern. Not only do you want to make sure your condition doesn’t get worse, but you will need appropriate documentation to serve as the basis for your disability claim. If possible, photograph your injuries, as well as the scene of the accident itself and any machinery or equipment that may have been involved. Keep copies of all correspondence with your employer, and with all insurance companies. File away receipts for all expenses, including out-of-pocket costs, and keep notes on the progress of your physical therapy or treatment. The more complete your paper trail, the easier it is to construct a solid workers’ compensation claim.
As a worker in Pennsylvania, you are protected by a body of compensation laws that was established specifically to compensate employees who are injured or disabled in the workplace. The benefits were created to defray medical costs and to fill cost of living gaps. You have a legal right to claim these benefits and the attorneys at HHR are prepared to help you do that.
Filing a workers’ compensation claim is an involved business with many details that can be easily overlooked if you are unfamiliar with the process. Any complication in the filing process will delay the collection of benefits.
It is also possible that your employer may have asked you to seek an independent medical evaluation or to meet with a vocational counselor. Maybe you’re being watched to determine if you really are physically impaired, or if the nature of your injuries actually constitutes a disability. What are your rights in these situations and what is your best course of action? The workers’ compensation attorneys at our firm have those answers.
At Handler Henning & Rosenberg we believe in the concept of workers’ compensation. The laws are fair, they exist for a reason, and we want to see you get the benefits that are yours to claim. Our legal consultations are offered at no charge to you and we have a no fee guarantee.
