Worker's Compensation — Talk to an Attorney First
When you suffer a workplace injury, your employer may be required to cover your medical treatment and any lost wages. You may also qualify for additional benefits if the injury results in permanent disability, temporary total disability, or scarring.
To be eligible, you must notify your employer within 21 days of an accident or injury. We can help you assemble your initial claim, or act swiftly on your behalf if your claim is denied. If your benefits are suspended or lowered, or you believe your benefits were approved at the wrong rate, you have only 20 days to bring a challenge. Let us handle your appeal.
Before you sign any documents, you should speak with an attorney to be sure that you are qualified and have applied for all entitled benefits. Attorneys Daniel Miscavigehas more than 20 years of experience in on-the-job injury claims. He is familiar with the doctors and vocational specialists, the Pennsylvania Worker's Compensation system, and the worker's compensation judges in north central and eastern Pennsylvania.
Social Security Disability
A large majority of initial claims for Social Security Disability benefits are turned down, even with a lawyer's help. We typically advise clients to submit their own claims, and we only get involved if the claim is denied. We represent clients in resubmitting claims for reconsideration, and at the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) level.
Our experienced lawyers will review your medical records and prepare you for the ALJ hearing. We examine the disability definitions and your educational, vocational, and medical background to make a comprehensive case that your disability prevents you from working.

- Defining the employer/employee relationship (e.g., contractor status)
- Requirement to carry worker's compensation coverage in Pennsylvania or other jurisdictions (e.g., temp agencies or "employee leasing" firms)
