WORKERS’ COMPENSATION LAWYERS IN LANCASTER
Obtain the Funds You Need to Recover
Life can change quickly. When you sustain a serious injury at work, the results can be severe. For many people, this means weeks or months without income, soaring medical bills, and possibly permanent health issues. While workers’ comp insurance policies are in place to provide financial relief for the victim’s losses, many times workers’ comp insurers will go out of their way to shift the blame elsewhere to avoid paying what they should. If you suffered a workplace injury, call the Lancaster workers’ compensation lawyers at Metzger Wickersham today.
Building Your Case
The weeks following an injury are crucial for filing the right paperwork and submissions. You have no later than 120 days from the date of the accident to notify your employer of your work injury, but the sooner you report the injury, the better.
During that period, you should:
- Seek immediate medical attention for your injuries: If you were injured on the job, you may be required to treat with a company doctor for the first few months. Contact our office to learn more about treating with a panel physician and what is required by law.
- Hire an experienced Lancaster workers’ compensation lawyer: A qualified legal representative can help you navigate the workers’ comp system and make the right decisions during this initial period.
- Consult with your attorney before signing anything: Make sure you know what is at stake when making statements or agreeing to terms. As your advocate, Metzger Wickersham can help you understand your position before doing anything that could compromise your future.
