Allentown Workers' Compensation Attorney

Benefits for Injured Workers in Easton, Bethlehem & the Lehigh Valley

In Pennsylvania and across the United States, workers in virtually every field are covered by workers’ compensation laws. These laws were put in place to provide a system that would offer benefits to workers who sustain on-the-job injuries or are diagnosed with occupational illnesses. Workers’ compensation replaces lost wages and covers medical costs associated with work-related injuries and also provides death benefits to families when workers lose their lives in workplace accidents.

Have you been injured at work? Although you may be rightfully entitled to workers’ compensation, you may run into difficulties in applying for and obtaining benefits. An Allentown workers’ compensation lawyer at Knafo Law Offices can help you through the application process and can help with an appeal if your claim has been denied.

We represent injured workers in workers’ comp claims across Allentown, Bethlehem, Easton, and the entire Lehigh Valley area. For a free consultation, call (610) 756-1098!

Applying for Workers’ Comp Benefits

If you want to receive workers’ compensation benefits, you will need to report your injury or illness to your employer as quickly as possible. Failure to report may delay your benefits or disqualify you from receiving benefits. Once you report your injury and tell your employer it is work-related, they must report the injury to the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation by filing a first report of injury.

An Allentown workers’ compensation attorney at our firm can help you report your injury to your employer and can follow up to make sure your employer sends the appropriate report to the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. We can also file a claim petition for a hearing before a workers’ compensation judge if your claim is denied for any reason.

We will pursue any and all applicable workers’ compensation benefits:

  • Payments for lost wages
  • Specific loss benefits
  • Medical care
  • Death benefits

To learn more about workers’ comp and your right to benefits, call our firm at (610) 756-1098.
