We at TMH Law are experts that are looking to be the advocate for your case.
When you are injured at work, it doesn’t only affect you physically, but it can affect your lifestyle and your finances as well. So what do you do? You search out the best lawyer possible to get you the compensation you deserve.
We at the Law Offices of Thomas More Holland have a zealous passion for seeking justice for our clients that are injured at work and have their lives affected by the event. You may receive workers compensation benefits for hurts and harms including (but not limited to) the following:
- Nerve damage
- Neck, back, shoulder, arm and hand injuries including fractures, strains and sprains, herniated and bulging discs
- Knee, leg and foot injuries including fractures, strains and muscle tears
- Brain injuries (from head trauma and other causes)
- Amputation or use of loss of a body part
- Hearing loss as a result of exposure to loud noises at work
- Loss of sight
- Repetitive injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Occupational diseases such as asthma, asbestos, mesothelioma and other conditions
What Are My First Steps If I Get Injured At Work?
As soon as you have discovered your injury, you need to report the injury to your supervisor as soon as possible. An injury must be reported to your employer within 120 days of the incident (and 21 days in the state of Pennsylvania), or your employer will gain the ability to deny all of your workers compensation claims.
Additionally, you need to seek medical attention to see severity of your hurts and harms, as well as recording the work-related injury. You may or may not need to seek medical attention from a doctor preferred by your employer so be sure that you receive that information ahead of time.
What Sets TMH Law Apart From The Rest?
Tom Holland is experience in evaluating lump sum offers. Early lump sum settlement offers may be encouraging, but Tom Holland will be able to help not leave anything on the table. If the disability continues to be treated without a definitive diagnosis and/or prognosis, prompt settlement may not be prudent. When and if to settle is your decision to make, but BEWARE. What’s the hurry? Please be cautious of an early settlement offer from a claims adjustor who suggests you do not need a lawyer. Our law office specializes in representing injured employees, and we know worker’s compensation law inside and out. You are allowed to represent yourself in worker’s compensation proceedings, but remember that the litigation is complex and your employer will be represented by an experienced attorney. Don’t walk into court, unprepared and outnumbered.
