An Injury At Work Can Hurt You More Than Physically
Being injured at work can be terrifying, and not only because of the physical pain and recovery time you may be facing. If your family depends on your paycheck, you probably are concerned about what you will do to cover bills until you are able to work again.
Some workers try to struggle through and continue to work, but that is the last thing you should consider. If you try to continue to work while injured, you will not be able to fully recover. Furthermore, there’s no need for you to push yourself to work when there is a program called wage loss benefits that is specifically designed to help you in this exact situation. A skilled lawyer can help you obtain them.
Your Income Is Already Protected
In Pennsylvania, if you have been hurt at work and your injury has resulted in reduced earnings, you are entitled to wage loss benefits. Even if you are working and your injury has caused you to earn less, you may be entitled to wage loss benefits.
At Golden Law Firm, I have been practicing workers’ compensation law on behalf of the injured for years. Before that, I worked on the other side of the courtroom, representing insurance companies. I know how insurance companies think and work, and I will put that knowledge to work on your behalf to get you the best possible outcome.
Don’t assume you will be paid the correct amount on your own. Insurance companies do not make money by fulfilling every claim to its fullest, and they likely will offer you a lower amount than you deserve to try to shut the case. I have more than two decades of experience, and I’m prepared to offer you the benefit of that experience so you know what to do.
Knowledge Is Power
Being represented by an experienced workers’ compensation attorney is the key to unlocking that power. To schedule a free consultation, call my Williamsport office at 570-980-1718. You can also reach out through my online contact form, and I will respond as soon as possible.
