Workers' Compensation

The workers' compensation system was intended to be mutually beneficial by making it easier for injured workers to collect compensation and by reducing legal liability for employers. Unfortunately, that's not really how it works in practice.

Since 1996, Pennsylvania laws have been heavily weighted in favor of employers. Many workers with valid injury claims have those claims denied for technical and bureaucratic reasons. That's why anyone injured at work should seek help from an experienced workers' compensation attorney.

Why Should You Hire A Mifflintown Workers' Compensation Attorney?

Anyone living in Mifflin County or Juniata County may be tempted to seek help from a law firm in a big city like Harrisburg. But consider the fact that disputed workers' compensation cases can take approximately two years to reach a resolution. That's a lot of driving, especially when you are trying to recover from a serious work injury.

Additionally, local attorneys have something that out-of-town lawyers don't have: local accountability. We live here, so we have extra incentive to do right by our clients, who are also friends and neighbors.

Why Should You Hire Our Firm?

Experience: The Law Office of Randy Zimmerman has extensive experience in workers' compensation cases. Our firm's founder, Randy Zimmerman, has been practicing workers' compensation law for nearly 30 years, and has had a high rate of success for clients in this area.

Honest Communication: If you are unsure about whether or not you have a case, just give us one meeting. We evaluate cases heavily at the first meeting, and are upfront and honest with clients about the strength of their claim. The initial consultation is free and there is no obligation to hire us.

Thorough Preparation: Some workers' compensation attorneys do not even meet their clients until the day of the hearing. We believe that thorough preparation — for attorneys and clients — is crucial to success.

Our attorneys thoroughly research each case, and we will meet with you the day before the hearing to help you get ready for it. We also deliver a strong presentation that may include medical testimony and development of competent medical evidence.

Tenacity And Commitment: We are not interested in settling a case unless doing so is in your best interests. We are also prepared to appeal the ruling if need be.

Risk-Free For Clients: Our workers' compensation cases are taken on contingency. That means we do not collect a fee unless we are able to obtain compensation for you. And as a reminder, the initial consultation is free.

When Should You Seek Help?

The sooner you seek our help, the better. If you come to us soon after the workplace accident, we will work to ensure that your employer does not engage in any conduct that could weaken your case. In general, you may want to avoid signing anything related to the accident until you speak to an attorney.
