Helping Injured Workers Secure Workers’ Comp Benefits For Over 30 Years
In addition to physical damage and distress, workplace injuries prevent individuals from earning a living and can cause great financial hardship. Fortunately, the law requires that an injured worker is entitled to receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and scarring.
At the Harrisburg-based Law Office of Richard F. Maffett, we understand that money does not solve all the problems an injury causes. However, promptly obtaining workers’ compensation benefits is an essential part of surviving a difficult time. Our firm has been skillfully assisting clients in Dauphin County and throughout Central Pennsylvania with obtaining workers’ compensation benefits for more than 30 years. Call us at 717-233-4160 to schedule a free consultation.
We Can Help You With Any Stage Of Your Claim
If you’ve been injured at work, we will guide you through the process. We can help you with your initial claim for benefits and represent you if your claim is denied or your benefits are cut off. We also represent railroad employees who need to file for benefits under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA).
Our firm purposely limits the number of clients we represent in order to provide each client with the care and attention they deserve. We take the time to thoroughly research and develop persuasive arguments for each case.
Some injuries are caused in a single accident or incident, such as a forklift accident in a warehouse. Other ailments (including carpal tunnel syndrome and asbestos-related diseases) come about over a longer period of time. We assist our clients in obtaining proper medical treatment for their injuries, especially in cases involving serious brain, back and spine injuries.
We Don’t Charge You Any Fees Unless We Recover Compensation
Our Harrisburg lawyer charges on a contingency fee basis in order to limit our clients’ financial risk. That means our clients do not pay attorneys fees unless we recover financial compensation on their behalf. We also attempt to get attorneys fees paid by the insurance company so that our clients receive every penny they deserve.
It is important to act quickly. After an injury occurs, a worker has only 120 days to report that injury to their employer. Please contact us today to discuss your workers’ compensation claim in a free consultation at our office located in Harrisburg one block away from the governor’s mansion.
