People in Lancaster County work in all kinds of professional environments. Whether you work in a manufacturing plant, on a construction site, in agriculture, in an office, at a school, in a retail store, in a healthcare facility, or drive a vehicle as a part of your job, you may eventually need the benefits workers' comp provides. However, some employers (and their insurance companies) try to avoid paying the benefits you deserve. When that happens, you need a good lawyer who specializes in workers' compensation.

What is Workers’ Compensation?
The Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act, also referred to as Workers’ Comp, Workmans’ Comp and Workmans’ Compensation provides for payment of lost income and medical expense benefits. Importantly, it also allows for potential lump-sum settlements for individuals who are injured at work. Most employers have attorneys and insurance claims adjusters working to protect their interests. Consequently, getting a fair Workers' Comp settlement isn’t always automatic or easy. Even if you have a great relationship with your employer and your supervisors, you might feel bullied, pressured, or short-changed when you file for workers’ compensation. Employers often deny workers' compensation and benefits to injured employees. However, when you retain Going and Plank to represent your interests, we fight for you. We take the time to thoroughly analyze your claim to ensure that lost income is recovered, medical bills are paid, and a lump-sum settlement is fully and expertly considered.

An Injury on the job Hurts You in Many Ways
When you are part of a worksite accident, you may end up missing work and losing income. If you are an hourly or contracted employee, such as a worker on a construction site, a driver, a factory worker, or part-time employee, you may find that you’ve been replaced because of your injury, or that your job is not available to you after you heal. Don’t let your injury hurt your long-term prospects. If you’ve been injured on the job, you may be entitled to lump-sum settlements, financial compensation to cover medical expenses, payments of lost wages, total and partial disability income benefits, specific loss benefits for loss of body parts, scarring and disfigurement, and death benefits.
