Williamsport Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Let Metzger Wickersham Help with Your Claim – If We Don’t Win, You Don’t Pay

If you are employed in Williamsport, you are likely covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ compensation is designed to pay your medical bills and missed wages if you suffer a workplace injury or occupational illness. If you get hurt at work, you are entitled to workers’ compensation coverage, but employers and insurance companies do not always handle claims correctly.

Our workers’ compensation lawyers in Williamsport, PA are dedicated to helping clients with workers’ comp claims. If your employer or insurance company has denied, reduced, terminated, or otherwise mishandled your claim, we can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Call our Williamsport workers’ compensation attorneys at (570) 600-1663 for a team that treats you like family.

What Are the Most Common Workplace Injuries?

Employees make workers’ compensation claims after experiencing injuries and occupational illnesses. The most common workplace injuries include:

Some injuries can heal in a few weeks, but others can affect you for your entire life. As such, you must take the correct steps to preserve your rights to workers’ compensation coverage.

With offices in Williamsport and across Pennsylvania, Metzger Wickersham can help.

What to Do After a Workplace Accident

If you get hurt on the job or develop an occupational illness, notify your employer right away. You and your boss should fill out paperwork together, then you should receive an acceptance or denial of your claim within 21 days.

Even if your employer or the insurance company mishandles your claim, you can protect your right to workers’ comp benefits by taking the following steps:

Report your injury in writing within 21 days of your injury. Keep in mind that you will lose your right to workers’ comp benefits if you do not report your injury within 120 days.

Get medical treatment as soon as possible. You are required to treat with an approved medical provider within 90 days of your workplace injury. If you need emergency treatment, seek the most immediate care available, and if your employer does not have a panel of approved providers, seek treatment with a physician of your choice.

Follow the doctor’s orders. If you fail to adhere to your treatment plan, your claim could be jeopardized. Always follow your doctor’s guidelines and restrictions (i.e., do not return to work unless your doctor tells you it is alright).

Get legal help. If you are having trouble with your employer or your insurance company, contact an attorney right away. Do not sign anything related to workers’ comp or give a recorded statement without consulting a lawyer.

Know your rights and legal options. You should talk to an attorney as soon as you report your workplace injury, so you understand your rights and legal options under the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act.
