In 1906, James Powell, Sr. founded a law firm to serve Northeastern Pennsylvania, primarily the budding towns of Scranton and Wilkes-Barre. 112 years later, Powell Law still thrives, as does the Scranton/Wilkes Barre metropolitan area. With offices in Scranton, Stroudsburg, Moscow, and Taylor, Powell Law serves more than the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area. Powell Law serves families and workers throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania.
For over a century, the attorneys at Powell Law have represented all types of workers in workers’ compensation cases. At Powell Law, we effectively assist clients throughout the entire workers’ compensation claims process. This is especially important since time is particularly of the essence in a workers’ compensation case. Why? If hurt on the job, a worker has 120 days to report the injury to receive compensation benefits.
The Pennsylvania worker’s compensation claims’ process is complicated. Information in the form of medical records and other documentation must be gathered and presented for a claim to be approved. This may be a monumental task for an injured worker who needs to recuperate and heal so he may return to work. Not only will Powell Law do the day-to-day work in the trenches to ensure that the best possible case is presented on behalf of an injured worker, it will deal with the employer’s insurance company to assert and protect an injured worker’s rights.
If it is impossible for a worker to return to her job, the attorneys at Powell Law may help in settling the case for a just and fair amount. Injured workers should never agree to the settlement of their case without legal representation.
Our decades of experience make us the clear and obvious choice for representation in workers’ compensation matters in the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and surrounding areas. Contact Powell Law at (570) 961-0777. The consultation is FREE and you don’t pay unless we win!
