    I have been handling worker's compensation cases for over 20 years. I have staff in place to talk intelligently about your case with you as they work on the cases with me in the event that I am not available at the moment you call. We communicate with our clients about the case regularly so that everyone is on the same page and the client understands their options. That is why you should hire us.

  • Workers Comp Reinstatement Hearing Question?

    My benefits were stopped by my employer in violation of the WC Act (without a judges order or notice) even with medical documentation of my inability to work. A petition for reinstatement/penalties has been filed. Will a WCJ decide to reinstate du...

    Deborah’s Answer

    If you have an attorney that filed the reinstatement petition you should ask your attorney, however the request can be made to reinstate your benefits while the reinstatement petition is pending. It depends upon the Judge and the facts of your case whether he or she will issue an order. A penalty petition needs to be filed against the employer as well if they cut off benefits without an order or supplemental agreement or final receipt. They are in deep water if they voilated the Act and cut you off without a basis or right to do so under the Act.

    You can go after your employer for worker's compensation. There are instances where you can sue your employer for extremely aggregious acts however in Pennsylvania it is very narrow instances that have been found where a law suit is allowed against the employer for more than worker's compensation benefits. We would need to gather more information and do investigation to determine if we believe your case would over come that threshold in the law. While it seems that based upon your manager telling you to do this would be an instance to qualify as an aggregious act, it may be that the manufacturer of the product is a better entity to sue because the instructions on the product from the manufacturer may have been that it was safe to mix.
