Assisting Williamsport Workers After An Accident
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.Warren R.

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.
