Why You Need a Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Your employer has extensive legal resources on their side – you deserve a tenacious advocate working for you

Employees have the right to work in a safe environment free from unreasonably dangerous situations or materials where proper policies and procedures are followed. Unfortunately, each year thousands of workers are injured while on-the-job and countless families have to cope with the loss of a loved one that was simply doing their job. So far this year alone, there have been more than 3,000 Workers’ Compensation claims filed in Pennsylvania, more than 200 in Delaware and more than 600 in New Jersey according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

Suffering a work-related injury or illness often leaves victims confused about their options and unsure of what steps they need to take to preserve their rights. There are many legal regulations that dictate how long you have to pursue a legal claim for recovery. Generally, you must file a claim within 120 days from the date of the injury to obtain compensation. In many cases, you may be required to receive medical treatment from a pre-set list of approved workers’ comp doctors. However, this does not prevent you from obtaining additional evaluations and treatment from other doctors. Also, your employer may offer an upfront payment for your medical expenses, but this is often an unfair or inadequate amount.

With a dedicated Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation lawyer on your side protecting your interests, you get the peace of mind knowing that your case is fully investigated and is made a top priority. Our experienced attorneys take the time to do the following:

  • Gather all the facts surrounding your accident
  • Collect information from your medical record including immediate and long-term treatments
  • Obtain testimony from medical experts to support your claim
  • Negotiate will all parties involved to reach a full and fair settlement
  • Litigate your case in front of a Workers’ Compensation Judge if your claim is denied
