My attorney Marisa Hill was the best! She stayed in contact with me, kept me informed and stayed on the mission! (To get me compensated and to get my health back in order)! I would refer #WinBig to anyone who needs an attorney! If you’re looking for a law firm that puts their clients first and make sure we get compensated, I’ll say give #WinBig a chance and you won’t regret it!!!

I suffered a truck accident back in November of 2023, Thanks to Marissa Hill and Frank I was able to successfully win the case due to their hard work and the fact that they were relentless with helping me wanting to win the case. I highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for great attorneys that won’t leave them hanging. They walked me throughout the entire process assuring me that they had my back. I would definitely love to work with them again if it came down to it!!

To Get What You Deserve, You Need Legal Representation

The workers’ compensation process can be overwhelming and confusing, especially when dealing with a serious injury or illness. That’s why you need experienced representation. Our Pennsylvania workers’ compensation attorneys will handle all the legal details and advocate for your rights so you can focus on your recovery. We will work hard to get you the maximum financial compensation under the law.

Contact us today to learn more about our services.

Why File a Workers’ Compensation Claim

Under Section 306(f.1)(1)(i) of the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act, your employer is responsible for advising you of your rights under the Act. At the time of your injury, the employer is required to provide a written account of your rights and duties. Once you know your rights, it is time to assess what care you will need and how to finance it. Filing a workers’ compensation claim achieves that by providing payment for your medical bills, lost wages, and benefits for any permanent injuries or loss of life.  

Medical Bills

You are entitled to payment for reasonable medical services related to your injury. You have 90 days from the time of your accident to meet with an employer designated medical provider in the Bethlehem area. After you meet with the employer designated provider, you are free to choose your own physician.  

Lost Wages

Payout for lost wages is determined by whether you are totally disabled, or partially disabled.

Total Disability

The payout is 2/3rd of your average weekly wage. After 104 weeks of such status, the employer/insurer can require a medical examination to determine if the employee is at least 35 percent impaired based upon his/her work injury according to American Medical Association standards.

Partial Disability

If you cannot return to work full time, you will receive 2/3rds of the difference between your pre-injury wage and post-injury wage. The maximum time allowed to receive partial disability is 500 weeks.

Permanent Disability Benefits

Permanent benefits are available if you have lost a substantial portion of the use of your body (fingers, hand, foot, etc.…). The amount available is calculated by the portion of your body injured and your pre-injury earnings.

Death Benefits

Under Pennsylvania law, death is classified as a compensable injury. If you had a loved one pass away due to a workplace injury or illness, you may be eligible for death benefits to help with expenses and loss of income. The amount you receive depends on your relationship with the victim and the number of children they had before their death.

Contact us today to get a free consultation from an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer.

Musculoskeletal injuries

Broken Bones, Sprained Joints?

A common workplace injury involves bones and joints being broken or sprained. Depending on the severity of the injury, a broken bone can require extensive rehabilitation.

Traumatic injuries

Head Trauma, Contusions, Lacerations?

One of the most severe injuries an employee can sustain at work is a mild traumatic head injury, otherwise known as a concussion. If you suffer from post-concussion syndrome or some form of traumatic brain injury related to a workplace accident, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation.

Occupational illnesses

Occupational illness?

Under Pennsylvania law, your illness is presumed to be work-related if it is a known hazard in your occupational field. Your disability must occur within 300 weeks of your last employment in an occupation where you were exposed to the hazard.

Mental health conditions

Mental Health Suffering?

Under Pennsylvania law, there are three types of workers’ compensation claims for mental health-related injuries such as stress or anxiety. You can claim workers’ compensation benefits if:

  • You suffered a physical injury which caused you to develop a debilitating mental health condition.
  • You suffer a bodily injury as a result of a work-related psychological stressor.
  • You develop a debilitating mental health condition due to work-related psychological stressors.

The Next Steps For Win Big to Fight for You

If you have been injured on the job, there are actions you can take to increase the strength of your workers' compensation claim. Following your accident, you should document your injuries and the facts of the accident. The more information you can provide the better Win Big can perform for you.  

Time is of the essence when it comes to reporting your injury. Your workers’ compensation claim is barred if you fail to report your injury to your employer within 120 days of your accident.

Under Pennsylvania law, if a company employs any workers, then they must have workers’ compensation insurance. Employers are required to post form LIBC-100. This form provides the name and information of the employers’ workers compensation insurance carrier. If you are injured on site, you will file your claim with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry. Given the importance of properly completing this form it is a good idea to consult a workers’ compensation attorney to guide you through the process.

If your employer denies your claim or fails to act, there is a strict deadline of three years from the date of injury to file a claim petition to ensure you do not lose your right to benefits.

The most important thing is your safety. After your injury, seek treatment as soon as possible. Please remember though, that for the first 90 days following your accident, you must obtain treatment from your employer’s designated medical provider. Once you have met that obligation, you are free to choose your own physician for the remainder of your case.
