Experienced Workers' Compensation Lawyers in Bucks County

We represent injured workers and file workers' compensation claims and third-party personal injury claims on their behalf. If you have been injured at work, it makes sense to contact attorneys who know the laws, know the system and strive to maximize the compensation available to injured workers. When workers’ compensation benefits are improperly denied or terminated, we file actions for indemnity (wage loss) and medical benefits pursuant to the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act. We file claim petitions against both private and public (state and local) employers and also defend against termination petitions. We represent claimants from the original filing through trial and even appeal decisions to the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board if necessary.

Workers' Compensation Claims

Injuries do not have to occur at your actual place of employment for the protections of Pennsylvania’s Worker’s Compensation Act to apply.  As long as you are within the scope of employment at the time of the accident, which is determined on a case by case basis, your employer is legally obligated to pay for your lost wages (pursuant to a calculation based on your average weekly wage) and all reasonable, medically necessary care that is required.  The Workers’ Compensation Act was passed to ensure that these benefits are paid promptly, but many times an employer will challenge your right to recover these benefits or the amount you are entitled to receive.  You should call an attorney for a free consultation any time you are injured in an accident while in furtherance of your employer’s business.  While you cannot sue your employer for pain and suffering, oftentimes the law does allow you to pursue this claim against another negligent party that caused the accident.  Remember that your employer’s insurance carrier is first and foremost concerned about their own bottom line and focuses on paying the least amount possible for each claim.

Third-Party Workplace Accident Claims

Many injured workers mistakenly believe the only legal remedy they have for a workplace incident is the workers’ compensation claim. Oftentimes however, the workplace injury was caused by a third party’s negligence such as a property owner, or even the manufacturer of a defective product. A third-party personal injury case can be brought in addition to a workers' compensation case which, unlike a workers' compensation claim, can include claims for pain and suffering.
