Williamsport Workers’ Compensation & Disability Lawyer
Accidents in the workplace happen all too often. If you have been injured
at work or while performing job related tasks, you may be entitled to
workers' compensation benefits. Commonly referred to as workers’
comp, these benefits include paying your medical expenses and compensating
you for time off work. Specific loss benefits are also payable for the
loss of use of a body part or for disfigurement of the head, neck, or
face due to a work accident.

in Williamsport who can help you cut through the red tape and determine
if you have a legitimate claim. Call (570) 995-3220 today.
Defend Your Rights Against Insurance Companies
Many times, insurance companies and employers will look to protect their
bottom line by quickly offering a reduced settlement. In some cases, insurance
companies will terminate or change existing benefits you are receiving.
If you are entitled to benefits but are not receiving them, we may be
able to help.
This includes benefits for:
- Medical, rehabilitation, and psychiatrist bills
- Lost wages
- Permanent disability
- Pain and suffering
Quickly Handling Your Claim for Compensation
You have the right to have your case heard before a workers' compensation
judge. As with all workers’ compensation claims, there are time
limits, including a statute of limitations, which apply. The application
of these deadlines can vary with the factual circumstances of your claim.
In appropriate cases, workers' compensation claims can be settled
for a lump sum or a lifetime annuity.
