5 Reasons to Call A Workers Comp Lawyer. You Deserve Compensation for Your Injuries

Workers’ compensation is a benefits program that is there for workers in the state of Pennsylvania. It provides medical expenses and wage-loss compensation for those who are unable to work until they are able to go back. It also provides death benefits to the dependent survivors of those who suffer work-related deaths. Though almost every worker in the state is covered by the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act, that does not mean that getting the benefits that you deserve is a straightforward process. Employers and the insurance companies that provide workers’ compensation coverage have 21 days after receiving notice of an injury to either agree that it is work related and issue a Notice of Compensation or Notice of Temporary Compensation, or to deny your claim. Once a claim is denied you have the right to file an appeal, but this process can be complicated and intimidating. If you have been injured or sickened on the job and are considering filing a workers’ compensation claim, you greatly improve your chances of success by calling a workers’ compensation lawyer. When you deserve compensation for your injuries, the attorneys at the Lancaster law firm of Vanasse Law will fight for your rights.

Though many people attempt to handle their workers’ comp claim and appeal on their own, doing so can be a mistake. The process can be confusing and requires adherence to highly specific deadlines and the gathering and submission of evidence. There are a number of reasons to call a workers’ compensation lawyer to assist you in your claim:

  • A workers’ compensation attorney will make sure that you are aware of all of the deadlines that you are required to meet, including when you need to provide notice of an injury, and how long you are required to receive care from the company-approved physician before being able to choose your own.
  • A workers’ compensation attorney will be able to advise you of whether you are able to hold other parties responsible for your injury. Though you can not generally file a lawsuit against your employer, there are many instances in which third parties may be found liable for your injuries. A workers’ comp lawyer will investigate this possibility and advise you of your rights.
  • A workers’ compensation attorney will be able to provide you with valuable information about other benefits you may be eligible to receive, including Social Security, unemployment or disability, and to help you to coordinate these benefits so that you are within the law.
  • A workers’ compensation attorney will represent you if your employer attempts to terminate, modify or suspend your benefits.
  • A workers’ compensation attorney will stand up to the insurance company’s lawyers during the appeals process.

At Vanasse Law, we are passionate advocates for the rights of injured workers. If you have been hurt on the job, call us today to ensure that you get the compensation and benefits that you deserve.
