If you suffered a work-related injury away from work, or if you were injured on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. While workers’ compensation is a federal program, state laws also regulate workers’ comp claims. This is why worker's compensation claims are so complicated. We understand that you have a lot of new questions, and we are here to help.
Each claim is unique, which is why we are happy to offer you a free consult to get you started.

Documentation is Key to a Successful Claim!
Obviously the primary focus in the aftermath of an injury is to get the proper medical attention. Injured workers should also remember that it is immediately following the injury that the vital paper trail on which their case will be constructed is beginning to come together. Just remember, the more completely you document your case, the more effectively your claim can be pursued.
You will need:
- Copies of all your medical records starting in the emergency room
- Copies of any accident report that may have been generated
- Copies of all correspondence
- Copies of all receipts
- If possible, get photos of your injuries, as well as of the site where your accident occurred
- Keeping notes can also be helpful, especially if your recovery is a long one
Why Speak with Our York Workers’ Compensation Attorneys?
Never lose sight of the fact that workers’ compensation laws were written to protect people just like you. The benefits are intended to assist with medical fees and to address cost of living expenses while you are unable to return to your job. If you work in the state of Pennsylvania, you have a right to file a workers’ compensation claim, and you have an equal right to collect fair disability benefits.
Not only must the details of your claim be handled correctly, but you must also be aware of tactics employers may use to prevent claims from being settled. You need the advice of the workers’ compensation attorneys at HHR to know what is in your best interest if you are being surveyed by your employer, have been asked to seek an “independent” medical examination, or to meet with a vocational counselor. None of these things are a good idea, but most workers would not know that on their own.
We keep your claim moving through the system, not stalled on someone’s desk. Why? Because we represent hurt workers regularly. We navigate the system, avoiding snags that can damage a claim to get you the compensation you deserve. If you have a claim denied, we would be happy to talk to you about filing an appeal.
What If I’m Permanently Injured? Can You Be Disabled as a Result of a Work Injury?
For cases where a work-related injury results in permanent impairment, you may be eligible to file a Social Security disability claim. There are guidelines as to what qualifies as a permanent disability, and the Social Security Administration has a list of impairments on their website. These claims can be as complicated as workers’ compensation, so we strongly advise you to talk to our firm before you make any mistakes that may result in your disability claim being denied. As with workers’ compensation, if your disability claim is denied, do not give up. We would be happy to help you file an appeal with the Social Security office to get the benefits you deserve.
