Qualifying for workers comp:
You are entitled to workers compensation for an injury or illness that occurred at your workplace or while you were engaged in a work-related activity, regardless of whether the injury or illness occurred in connection with your job. Even in the absence of your employer's fault or negligence, you can still receive the help you need through workers compensation benefits.
Waiving workers compensation:
When you accept a workers compensation payment, you forfeit your right to pursue other remedies against a negligent employer. If your employer has acted negligently, you may deserve award of pain and suffering and other damages not granted through a workers compensation claim. We carefully review your case to determine how you can best recover the compensation you deserve.
Appealing a workers compensation decision:
If your workers compensation claim is unfairly denied, you have only a short window of opportunity to appeal the unjust decision. We can help you maneuver through the overwhelming bureaucratic process of appealing to the Pennsylvania workers compensation board.
