Dedicated Pittsburgh Attorney Helping Employees File Workers’ Compensation Claims
There are some important numbers to remember when filing a workers’ compensation claim in the state of Pennsylvania. For instance, while you should absolutely notify your employer of your injury as soon as humanly possible, you technically have 120 days (i.e. four months) to do so. You also have three years from the date of the injury to file a workers’ compensation suit. Keep in mind, however, that while there’s a fairly large window of time in which to file a claim, receiving benefits can take a while, so it’s best to begin the process as soon as possible.
The forms provided by the Workers’ Compensation Bureau are notoriously difficult to follow. Under Pennsylvania state law, any document with your signature on it will be treated as legally binding, meaning a judge will enforce any agreement to which you’re a party. An authorization for medical records and employment verification form are just two of the documents you’ll need to sign. Attorney Michael L. Studd is willing to meet you anywhere, anytime. His principal objective is that you receive the care and benefits to which you are entitled.
