Work place injuries are not only damaging physically, but if the worker is disabled and facing life with diminished mobility, the psychological devastation can be equally challenging. Add to that the burden of high medical costs and strained family finances, and the frustration levels can be crippling. These are not circumstances under which you should attempt to file a complex workers’ compensation claim without help.
At Handler Henning & Rosenberg we have a team of Lebanon workers’ compensation lawyers and a successful track record with these kinds of cases that stretches back to 1922. Our attorneys understand how difficult this time is for you and will do all they can to guide you through this process and obtain the benefits you deserve.
Documenting Your Claim
Although seeking medical attention is always the first priority in the event of a workplace accident, our Lebanon workers compensation lawyers recommend starting the “paper trail” that will serve as the foundation of your claim as soon as possible. This documentation will include your medical records from the emergency room, but it should also include, if possible, photos of your injuries, of the accident site, and any machinery or equipment involved. Keep all correspondence and receipts, and make notes about your recovery. It’s also a good idea to record, either verbally or in writing, your recollections of the incident while the details are still fresh in your mind.

Why Speak With Our Lebanon Workers’ Compensation Attorneys?
Lebanon, PA 17042
It’s important to remember that the State of Pennsylvania passed the workers’ compensation laws and established this system of benefits specifically to cover the cost of living and medical expenses of workers injured on the job. This claim is your right, and the lawyers at HHR Law want to see you receive your just benefits.
There can be many complications in the process and it is not unusual for employers to try to derail employee’s workers’ compensation claims by various methods that seek to disprove the assertion of injury or disability. These may include surveillance, a request that you be evaluated by an “independent” medical examiner, or that you receive vocational counseling. Your best course of action is to speak to no one in a position of “authority” until you’ve met with the workers’ compensation attorneys at HHRLaw.com.
We are so committed to the concept of just workers’ compensation, we offer free legal consultations and we work on the basis of a no fee guarantee.
