When it comes to workplace injuries in Pennsylvania, it is often what you must endure after that is almost as equally frustrating as being injured in the first place. For many, it is likely the first time they have been injured or contracted an illness that prevents them from going to work, from carrying out a daily life. The inability to work, coupled with mounting medical bills, not only causes a financial strain on an injured worker, but also deeply impacts their and their family’s livelihood.
It can be difficult to know when you may need the help of an attorney with your Pennsylvania workers’ compensation claim. The workers’ compensation team at Mednick, Mezyk and Kredo are here to help you understand when you may need a lawyer to help you file your claim.
Facing a Denial
If you have been denied benefits by your employer or your employer’s insurance company, you may appeal their decision. It is best to, if you haven’t already, involve an attorney upon receiving a denial. Appealing is difficult without understanding of the nuances of Pennsylvania law and how it applies to your injury or illness and your work situation.
If You Are a Caretaker
It may be difficult to see your loved one fighting a workplace injury or illness. It is even more difficult to manage the expenses, caretaking responsibilities as well as managing a family without your loved one’s income. By contacting a Philadelphia workers’ compensation attorney, you can help alleviate the additional stress of filing for a claim while we fight to obtain the benefits your loved one is entitled to receive.
