Getting The Workers' Compensation Benefits You Need

What Do You Do Now?

You have suffered a work-related injury that is keeping you from working. Now what? That is the difficult and intimidating part for injured workers in Pennsylvania, where workers' compensation insurance issues can be complicated. Many claims are denied due to how complex the workers' comp system is and employees often do not understand the system. As a result, many injured workers give up without receiving the benefits they are entitled to.

At Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo, we cannot stress enough how important it is not to give up. Our team of attorneys will work with you to inform you of your rights and then skillfully pursue the benefits you are entitled to, including:

  • Medical benefits — These could include doctor care, hospitalization, physical therapy, medications and more.

  • Specific loss — You may be entitled to compensation for the loss of a limb, eyesight, hearing or another bodily function.
  • Lump-sum settlements — Should you accept a lump-sum settlement or not? We can provide you with guidance.
  • Death and dependency benefits — Family members of work accident victims may be entitled to compensation.

Types Of Compensation Not Provided By Workers' Compensation

There is often a lot of confusion about what is and what is not covered by workers' compensation. While an individual undoubtedly suffers damages such as pain and suffering when injured on the job, this is not covered in a workers' compensation claim. The same goes for punitive damages when gross negligence causes a workplace accident resulting in a wrongful death and loss of consortium.

Leveling The Playing Field And Holding Insurance Companies Accountable

The insurance company will likely make you a settlement offer early on in the process that is not in your best interest. It may not even include compensation for all the categories you are entitled to under the law. We will make sure your claim is handled properly and negotiate aggressively on your behalf. If a settlement cannot be reached, we have the resources to pursue your rights through a lawsuit in a workers' compensation proceeding.
