Johnstown Workers' Comp Lawyer
Workers' Compensation Help in Johnstown
Even when we are careful and fully trained and follow safety regulations, work-related accidents occur. Sometimes we are injured because of the duties associated with our jobs, such as heavy lifting, repetitive motion or exposure to loud noises or toxins. In these matters, it is crucial to involve a Johnstown workers' comp lawyer who can help you file a workers' compensation claim to seek benefits that will cover medical expenses and lost earnings associated with your injury, disability or illness. Workers' comp can also help families who have lost loved ones in work-related accidents.
As an injured worker, you have the right to workers' compensation benefits. Unfortunately recovering these benefits may be more difficult than it seems. The workers' comp claims process can be difficult - there are certain time frames in which you must inform your employer and there is specific information that you must be sure to include in your claim. Missing or inaccurate information may result in the denial of your claim. There are also situations where an employer or workers' compensation insurance provider acts in bad faith in handling a claim, attempting to pay out the lowest amount of money possible. A Johnstown workers' compensation attorney can help you file your claim and can address any potential problems as they arise in order to ensure your right to benefits is not threatened. A lawyer can even seek other potential sources of compensation, in cases where a third party can also be held accountable for causing or contributing to your injuries.
We offer compassionate support and experienced representation in all types of workplace accident and work injury claims in the Johnstown area. Contact a Johnstown workers' compensation attorney at our firm today to find out how we can help you.
