Williamsport Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

If you’ve been injured on the job in Pennsylvania, workers’ compensation payments can help provide for you, your family, and your everyday expenses.

Workers’ compensation benefits can help you when you need any of the following:

  • Temporary disability when you have to take time off of work to recover
  • Permanent disability when you or a loved one’s injuries are too severe to ever work again
  • Total or partial benefits, depending on if you can work or not
  • Weekly compensation
  • Payment for your medical bills, including potential future medical issues
  • Rehabilitation costs

When you need assistance filing a claim for benefits, call Warren R. Baldys Attorney at Law, at (570) 995-3220 for a free initial consultation.

What Is the Difference Between Total & Partial Disability?

In the state of Pennsylvania, a worker is considered totally disabled if their injury or accident has caused them to be at least 50% impaired and cannot continue doing their job, as determined by a trained medical professional.

Partial disability payments, on the other hand, are given to injured victims for up to 500 weeks. Being partially disabled, according to state law, means that you can eventually return to work, even at a lower paying job.

Both total and partial disability are equal to about two-thirds of your average weekly wages, and do not take into account cost-of-living increases or raises. While these payments are less than what you were making, they are vitally important to help ensure that you and your family do not needlessly suffer financially when you’ve been injured.
