Guiding You Through the Workers' Compensation System

Work-related injuries are usually covered by a company's workers' compensation insurance. However, the vast majority of first-time claims are rejected. Preparing and filing an appeal often require additional medical information and an understanding of how the law protects workers.

At Galloway Monzo, P.C., our workers' compensation lawyers can help you find physicians and specialists to verify your medical condition, file necessary paperwork, and make sure you aren't forced to return to work before you have recovered. We protect your rights and challenge findings by insurance doctors when they result in a denial of the benefits owed you.

We understand workers' compensation law and are prepared to fight for your rights — contact us today for a free case evaluation. We represent working people in Murrysville, New Kensington, Irwin, North Huntingdon, Latrobe, Ligonier and Derry.

Don't Be Discouraged if You've Been Denied

Most first-time applicants for workers' compensation are denied. Insurance company doctors often downplay the severity of an injury or claim it is due to an existing condition. Our workers' compensation lawyers work with a network of doctors we refer clients to for additional physical examination and testing. During this time, we will challenge any attempt to make you return to work before you are healed. We will carefully review any settlement offer since any offer you accept could affect other benefits you may be eligible to receive if your condition results in disability.

What Happens if My Injuries are Serious?

In construction accidents and head and neck injuries, short-term disability may turn into long-term or permanent disability. Our workers' compensation lawyers handle Social Security Disability cases and will evaluate your situation to determine if you qualify for Supplemental Security Income or Social Security Disability benefits. We can refer your case to the appropriate medical professionals for further evaluation and documentation in preparing your application for Social Security benefits.
