Harrisburg Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Pennsylvania workers’ compensation laws are intended to provide injured workers with compensation for medical bills and lost wages while they cannot work. Workers’ compensation is a complex system devised by the federal government, which then has to conform to Pennsylvania state laws; benefits are paid by private insurance companies, the State Workers’ Insurance Fund, or self-insured employers. Complying with all stipulations involved can be a daunting task, especially for someone unfamiliar with the process of attaining benefits. Why would you risk your payments by trying to take on this arduous task yourself when you should be concentrating on healing? Put our experience to work for you and avoid the pitfalls that can harm your claim.

At Handler, Henning & Rosenberg, we've represented 1000s of injured workers. We have an experienced team of lawyers in-house to handle every aspect of your work comp claim.

Documenting Your Accident-Related Damages 101

It is imperative after an injury on the job to seek medical attention immediately—not only to prevent your condition from becoming worse but also to allow a qualified doctor to document your injuries. For a claim of disability to be successful, medical records are vital, as are copies of all other associated documents such as correspondence, pay stubs, and receipts for out-of-pocket expenses.

If possible, photograph your injuries, the scene where the accident occurred, the condition of any machinery or equipment involved in the incident, and any other factors that seem relevant. Also, keep a complete record of your interaction with any insurers who have or who may pay out benefits for your injuries. And remember: Time lost is evidence lost! The sooner you call our firm, the better.

Permanently Disabled Because of a Workplace Injury?

If you have been hurt and can no longer work, our legal team is composed of skilled Social Security Disability lawyers. We have been practicing law for 84+ years in the Pennsylvania area and are here to help you.

Receiving Medical Treatment After a Work Injury

One of the most important things that you can do following a work-related injury is to ensure that you receive the necessary medical care. Under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act, eligible individuals are entitled to receive benefits that cover related and reasonable surgical and medical services. These services can include medication, supplies, hospital treatments, appliances, prostheses, and more. It is vital that you choose the correct health care provider to treat your injury. Although you are free to choose your doctor, there are situations where you will need to select a provider selected by your employer for initial treatment.

Injured in a Car Accident on the Job?

Per the 2015 Annual Report on Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation & Workplace Safety, highway motor accidents accounted for more than 3% of all work injuries reported that year—causing 5,000+ injuries. Truthfully, few situations can cause more distress or more catastrophic injuries than an auto accident. This fact is especially true should you be involved in a crash while on the job. Regardless of whether you are a professional commercial driver, such as a truck driver, or if you were driving in another capacity, you have benefits you are owed if you were injured in a workplace accident. At Handler Henning & Rosenberg, we can help evaluate your case and determine your legal options. Call today if you would like to set up a free consultation with our firm.

How Workers’ Compensation Affects Wrongful Death

If you lost someone you love in a work-related incident, you need to understand how workers’ compensation laws will impact your case. The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act provides death benefits to eligible family members in these scenarios.

The following people can be eligible for death benefits:

  • Widow
  • Widower
  • Children

In some instances, a spouse, such as a brother or a sister, or parents may be eligible to receive these benefits.

The spouse will be eligible to receive benefits for the rest of their life or until they remarry. Should they remarry, they will be eligible to receive the rest of the compensation in a lump sum. Children are eligible to receive benefits until they turn 18 years of age unless they have a disability; benefits can extend to the age of 23 for individuals enrolled as full-time students. Because the laws surrounding death benefits are involved, it is crucial that you do not hesitate to get the legal help that you need if you are dealing with this tragedy. Turn to an experienced lawyer from Handler Henning & Rosenberg for compassionate, effective legal care.

Why Speak with Our Harrisburg Work Injury Law Firm?

In Pennsylvania, employees have a right to receive workers’ compensation benefits when they have suffered work-related injuries or disabilities. The benefits are designed to help cover both medical and living expenses for the period when you cannot work.

Filing a compensation claim is an involved process. If you overlook details, you may be denied benefits or receive less than appropriate compensation for your injuries.
