Workers' Compensation Lawyers

Our experienced attorneys have been representing injured workers since 1985.

Representing injured workers since 1985

In Pennsylvania, if you’re injured at work, you’re entitled to have your medical bills and lost wages paid by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier. Unfortunately, it’s often necessary to hire a lawyer to get these benefits.

Not only can we help you get the workers’ compensation settlement you deserve, we can also help you if:

  • Your workers’ comp claim is denied.
  • The insurance company tries to stop your benefits.
  • You’re receiving workers’ compensation benefits and the insurance company is sending
  • you to an “independent medical examination.”
  • The insurance company denies you treatment.
  • The insurance company tries to send you back to work before you’re ready.

Get compensation for your work injury

Think you’re being underpaid? You’re probably right.

In Pennsylvania, Workers’ Compensation insurance companies frequently miscalculate your wage benefits. Our Erie, PA, Meadville, PA, and Smethport, PA workers’ compensation lawyers can file a petition with the court to correct your pay and see to it you’re awarded past-due benefits for underpayments.

Free consultations & zero retainer fees

Our lawyers provide free consultations and our firm works on contingency, which means you don’t pay any money to retain us. We front all costs and we only charge a fee if we obtain you a settlement. If there isn’t a recovery, you pay nothing. If you’re already receiving benefits from the insurance company, our law firm does not take a portion of your benefits unless we go to court to defend your benefits, or if we negotiate a lump-sum settlement of your case. We even pay for all expenses in litigating your case.
