How Larry Pitt & Associates Can Help You Obtain Workers’ Compensation in Philadelphia

October 30, 2015

Our workers’ compensation lawyers get a lot of questions from new clients and their families when they meet with us. Two of the most common are, “Do I really need a lawyer?” and “What exactly do you do to help me?”

To answer the first question, Yes: you should always work with an experienced Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyer if you have been hurt on the job or have become ill as a result of the conditions of where you work. Our firm has being practicing in this area of law for 35 years, and we promise you – there is no kind of workers’ compensation case we haven’t heard of or helped with in that time.

What a Philadelphia workers’ comp attorney does to help you

So how can we help you, exactly? First of all, we sit down with you and listen to your story, so we can fully understand the work you do, the injury and pain you’ve suffered, and why you need workers’ compensation benefits in order to get well again. After we get to know you and your family, we:

  • Work with your doctors. We collect all of your medical records, such as notes form your doctors, your prescription history and any other evidence (like X-rays, for example, or test results) that we need. We deal with all the complicated paperwork and keep a record of what’s been done and who has received what.
  • Deal with the insurance companies. Your employer’s insurance company doesn’t want to pay you benefits. Our job is make them see why you are entitled to those benefits. We handle the phone calls and requests for information, and we make sure that every piece of information is up to date.
  • Represent your interests. We make sure your claim for benefits is complete, and then we file it ourselves. We send updates to the Social Security Administration when necessary – for example, if you see another doctor, we’ll send those records – and make sure that your case is progressing. We also represent you in and prepare you for administrative hearings, and file appeals on behalf of clients whose claims were denied the first time they tried to file.
  • Protect you and your family. Are bill collectors calling you night and day? Is your boss trying to get you to drop your claim? Leave them to us: we can help.
