Pittsburgh Workers’ Compensation Attorney
The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act provides benefits to cover the medical bills and lost wages of people who have suffered workplace injuries. These benefits are crucial for individuals who are no longer able to work and are facing increasing medical debt, but no source of income. Unfortunately, obtaining these benefits without legal guidance is complex and the process can discourage many applicants from filing in the first place, or appealing from a denied claim.
At the Law Office of Melvin L. Vatz, Mr. Vatz has helped injured workers obtain workers’ comp benefits for nearly 40 years. If you have been injured on the job and are seeking workers’ comp benefits, contact a Pittsburgh workers’ compensation lawyer online or call (412) 391-3030 to schedule a free initial consultation.
