Workers compensation claims are complex and detailed. If you have been injured or disabled on the job, you’re probably not in a good position to be handling your claim without expert advice. The physical and psychological ramifications of your accident are likely considerable, and your finances are no doubt in disarray.
At Handler Henning & Rosenberg our team of Shippensburg workers’ compensation lawyers have been helping the victims of job-related accidents since 1922. We not only understand the legal process involved, we also understand the difficulties you are experiencing. We can guide you through the workers’ compensation process and minimize some of the stress you are feeling in seeking the benefits to which you are entitled.
Document Your Damages
Although medical attention is always the first priority with any job-related injury, you cannot ignore the need to amass the documentation that will form the basis of your workers’ compensation claim. You will need to have copies of all your medical records. This includes the initial emergency room visit as well as all subsequent visits to specialists and to your personal physician. Keep all correspondence relevant to the incident, all receipts for expenses you have incurred, and if practical to do so, photograph the accident scene. The more completely you can document your claim, the better.

Why Speak With Our Shippensburg Workers’ Compensation Attorneys?
Shippensburg, PA 17257
At Handler Henning & Rosenberg we often find ourselves in the position of defending the workers compensation laws themselves. Filing for these benefits does not constitute “working” the system as may have been suggested to you. The State of Pennsylvania passed these laws and devised this benefit system to help people just like you with your medical and living expenses. It is your right to seek these damages.
One very good reason to work with a workers’ compensation lawyer is the fact that your employer may try to block your claim. We have seen instances where workers were watched to determine if they were faking their injuries. You may be asked to have an “independent” medical evaluation or to meet with some kind of vocational “counsellor.” In truth, when you are involved in a workers’ compensation claim, you don’t need to be speaking to anyone but your lawyer.
Handler Henning & Rosenberg offers free legal consultations and works on a no fee guarantee.
