Philadelphia Workers Compensation Lawyer
One in five employed individuals in Pennsylvania and New Jersey will sustain an injury at their workplace that prevents them from working. Some of these injuries are temporary, but others may be catastrophic injuries that prevent you from working for months or even years.
When you sustain an injury on the job, medical expenses and lost wages can quickly begin to add up. Workers’ Compensation is designed to provide injured workers with adequate financial support to make it through these difficult times. Unfortunately, the Workers’ Compensation claim process can be difficult – leaving many families in dire financial trouble during lengthy appeals procedures.
For over 40 years, the experienced work injury lawyers at Wapner, Newman, Wigrizer, Brecher & Miller have been helping injured workers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania obtain the compensation they need.
Submitting a Workers’ Compensation Claim
When you are injured on the job, both you and your employer will have to fill out necessary paperwork. The information you provide to the state will be considered alongside your employer’s information to determine if Workers’ Compensation should be granted.
This initial filing is incredibly important to the success of your claim. Even a single error can result in a denial of benefits. Our Workers’ Compensation lawyers can help you with this initial filing, ensuring that everything is in order and enhancing your chances of receiving your compensation.
Our Attorneys Will Fight For You
Many Workers’ Compensation claims are denied after their first filing. When this happens, you have a right to appeal the decision. We will work closely with you throughout the appeal process, providing you with the legal representation you need to successfully appeal a Workers’ Compensation denial.
Very few workers understand their rights under Workers’ Compensation. With years of experience helping injured workers, we can help ensure you do not miss out on your chance for fair compensation.
