Beaver County Workers Compensation Attorneys
Hopewell, PA Workers Comp Lawyers Serving Individuals in Beaver County
The Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Act covers compensation for medical expenses and wage-loss for most workers who are unable to work after suffering a work-related injury or illness. Workers are sometimes treated unfairly by their employers or the insurance companies handling these claims.
Each workers compensation attorney at McMillen Urick Tocci & Jones in Hopewell has the skills and experience to help injured workers pursue the compensation they deserve for their claims. And when the negligence of third parties causes worker injury, a workers compensation attorney at our firm can also help you pursue damages through a personal injury third party claim.
Workers Compensation Basics
A primary purpose of workers compensation is to help ensure workers who sustain on-the-job injuries or illnesses receive the medical attention they need, regardless of the party who may be liable for their illness or injury. Every employer should have the workers comp procedure prominently posted in a public area. But injured employees can generally begin the claims process by notifying a supervisor or other company official as soon as they become aware of their work-related condition. It is advantageous for a worker to contact a lawyer as soon as possible after an injury occurs. Employers and their insurance carriers can deny claims in certain situations, such as when an injury is related to employee misconduct or the use of drugs. If you believe you are receiving unfair treatment on a valid claim, our Hopewell workers comp attorneys can help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
How the Process Works
The first step is to report the injury. Whether your claim is or is not accepted, you should consult an attorney. It costs nothing to consult with our experienced Beaver County workers comp attorneys, who can provide valuable advice on the early handling of your concerns.
Our lawyers remain available to guide you through the process from claim preparation to settlement. We can also represent you in complex workers compensation proceedings to help level the playing field against the attorneys representing your employer and its insurance company.
In some cases, you can also apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to provide support you need for your illness or injury.
Each SSD/SSI lawyer in Hopewell at McMIllen Urick Tocci & Jones can help maximize your chances of success in filing your SSD/SSI claim.
