Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation

  

If you sustain a job injury or work-related illness, the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act provides for your medical expenses and in the event you are unable to work, wage-loss compensation benefits until you are able to go back to work.


After you have suffered a job injury or work-related illness, you have up to three years to file a Workers’ Compensation claim. However, you need to provide notice to your employer within 120 days of the job injury or work-related illness or you will be forever barred from filing a claim.

You may be entitled to:

  • Wage loss compensation – According a yearly fee schedule, up to a maximum amount of $1,049 for as long as you are unable to return to work. Partial wage loss benefits if you return to work with restrictions and earn less than your pre-injury wages.
  • Payment of medical and prescription medication bills related to a job injury or work-related illness until you are fully recovered. 
  • Specific loss benefits for the loss of a limb or for severe disfigurement or scarring.


In Pennsylvania, all attorney’s fees in Workers’ Compensation cases must be approved by a Workers’ Compensation Judge. If we are successful in obtaining Workers’ Compensation benefits for you, our fees are limited to 20% of benefits we recover for you.

Social Security Disability

Hiring a Social Security attorney an greatly increase your chances of receiving Social Security Disability Insurance benefits (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

If you are unable to work due to health reasons, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). You can apply for these benefits at the Social Security Administration office in your area. 


Social Security pays disability benefits (SSDI) to people who can’t work because they have a medical or psychiatric condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. In order to qualify for benefits, you must have previously worked enough to meet the earnings requirements. 


Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is designed to help aged, blind and disabled people, who have not worked enough to meet the earnings requirements for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and have little or no income and limited assets. It provides cash to meet basic needs for food, clothing and shelter.


If the Social Security Administration denies your claim for Social Security and you feel you deserve to receive these benefits, you may request a hearing so that you may prove your case in front of an Administrative Law Judge. In order to do this, it is wise to obtain legal counsel so that you may be properly prepared for this hearing. It is important to obtain an attorney once you are denied benefits so that he/she may have time to obtain your records to present to the Administrative Law Judge.


Attorney Fees in Social Security Disability cases are limited by Federal Law and must be approved by an Administrative Law Judge. If we are successful in obtaining SSDI or SSI benefits for you, our fees are limited to 25% of your past due benefits, not to exceed $6,000.
