Some of the different ways that we can help with your work injury claim include:
Investigating the circumstances that led to your work injury – In some cases, it’s clear that your injury happened on-the-job. But in other cases, such as when you become ill from toxic exposure or develop a repetitive stress injury, your case may not be as clear-cut. No matter the circumstances, we’ll gather the evidence you need to make a strong work injury claim so you can get benefits.
Handling workers’ compensation paperwork – You need to let your employer know about your work injury right away. You may also need to provide additional information about your medical treatments, missed work and wages, and other details about your work accident. We can handle all of this paperwork for you. We can help you file your initial injury report. We can answer requests for information from insurers. We can also correspond with the PA Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.
Appealing a benefits denial– If your claim for workers’ comp benefits is denied, there are multiple stages of appeal you can go through to have your case reconsidered. You may need to appeal. You cannot sue your employer, and workers’ comp may be your only chance for benefits. There are strict deadlines to follow. You will need to follow all procedural requirements. We have successfully handled many appeals. Shor & Levin, P.C., can take on the task of fighting your benefits denial.
Resolving benefits disputes – If your insurance company tries to deny you benefits, such as payment for certain medical treatments, we can help to negotiate the issue and resolve the dispute so your needs are met.
Representing you in hearings– If your appeal progresses, you may have a hearing in front of the PA Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. Your case could even end up in an appeals court. When and if this occurs, you need an attorney to make arguments on your behalf.
Helping you to understand all of the benefits available to you – Workers’ comp is just one potential source of benefits after a work injury. You may also be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD). You may even have a third-party injury claim if someone besides your employer caused your injury. We’ll review your case and determine all possible ways you can be compensated.
At every step, we will use our legal skills and our decades of experience for you. We make a commitment to return calls promptly. We promise to keep you updated and informed on your claim at all times. We will treat your case with the importance that it deserves.
