Under Pennsylvania law, an employee who suffers an injury while performing his or her daily job duties, can be entitled to wage loss benefits up to a legally-designated maximum amount and coverage of medical expenses.
To collect benefits under workers’ compensation, you do not have to have been involved in a specific accident at work. Injuries arising from repetitive work activities can cause significant injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain, loss of hearing or sight, and arthritis, which are compensable under workers’ compensation law.
King Legal Group’s attorneys have decades of experience successfully litigating hundreds of workers’ compensation matters, primarily on behalf of the injured worker. Through litigation, our attorneys have successfully resolved a wide array of workers’ compensation issues from the filing of the initial claim petition to final judgment and appeals. Our history of successful results includes ensuring that the notice of compensation payable included all work-related injuries, correcting the employer’s miscalculation of the employee’s compensation benefits, and obtaining or maintaining a worker’s wage loss and/or medical benefits as well as obtaining a lump-sum settlement of benefits for the injured worker.
In addition to workers’ compensation, our attorneys have successfully obtained benefits for clients seeking social security disability. Social security disability provides disability benefits, including cash and medical benefits. If you are under the age of 65, suffer from a physical disability, mental disorder or chronic illness, that will cause you to be unable to work for a year or more, you may be eligible for benefits. In addition, you must meet requirements based on your earnings and work history. Our attorneys have experience with the individual application and subsequent appeals and hearings.
