Do I Need A Lawyer If I’m Currently Receiving Benefits?

If you injured yourself at work in Pennsylvania and reported it to your employer, you may have started to receive workers’ compensation benefits without contacting a lawyer. Sometimes, the insurance company does the right thing and accepts a claim. However, you may still be wondering if it would be worthwhile for you to contact a lawyer. Believe us, having a workers’ comp lawyer PA monitor your case is to your advantage — and Pearson Koutcher Law, which specializes in Pennsylvania workers’ compensation law — will do this free of charge.

What Does It Mean To Hire A Lawyer To Monitor My Case?

With Pearson Koutcher Law monitoring your case, you have access to an expert Pennsylvania workers’ compensation lawyer who will answer any questions you have regarding your case, such as: Am I receiving my full benefits? Will the insurance company continue to pay my medical bills? What happens if I go back to work? Navigating the complexities of a workers’ compensation claim can be daunting and having a lawyer on your side early on can help make the process less stressful for you. You will not be charged unless you settle your case or a petition is filed against you, challenging your right to ongoing benefits.

What can a Lawyer do if the Insurance Company Petitions to stop my Benefits?

If your employer’s workers’ comp. company insurance petitions to terminate, suspend, or modify your benefits, a lawyer at Pearson Koutcher Law will be ready to fight this petition for you. You may think that your employer is on your side and won’t make you return to work before you have fully recovered from your injury, but often it is the insurance company – which doesn’t have your best interests in mind — that makes this decision rather than the employer. If the insurance company files a petition against you, it is critical that you have a workers’ comp lawyer PA to represent you and defend this petition so you can continue to receive your full benefits. At Pearson Koutcher Law, we have decades of experience fighting petitions filed by insurance companies against injured workers.
