Enforcing Your Work Injury Rights Since 1991

Attorney Louis P. Lombardi II has represented injured employees since 1991. His valuable claimants' legal experience and prior experience in insurance defense have served his clients well. For the past 16 years, he has served as chairman of the Workers' Compensation Committee of the Montgomery Bar Association. Mr. Lombardi has won many large settlements for claimants who have a permanent disability, and large awards for injured individuals to help retrain them for the work force. He handles all categories of claims:

We're On Your Side

There is an immediate conflict of interest between an injured employee and the employer obligated to pay for medical care and disability income. It is easy to be misled by your employer or the workers' compensation insurer. They may misstate your rights, actively challenge or resist your claim, or even pressure you to return to work prematurely.

For example, injured workers are often told — illegally — that they must see the company's doctor. These not-so-independent physicians may downgrade your injuries and disability or even release you back to work too soon. At worst, they may not be qualified to treat your condition. In fact, you may have the right to choose your own physicians, even in the first 90 days. How can you tell the difference? It takes a knowledgeable lawyer to guide clients in this area. In addition, we help clients find competent doctors and specialists who can properly treat your injury and advocate for you.

In addition to medical benefits, you also may be entitled to weekly or biweekly disability benefits based on a percentage of your wages, including bonuses, overtime and second jobs. Employers and insurers may miscalculate the amount of disability benefits that may be owed to you. If you do not have someone who is capable of calculating your correct disability rate, you may continue to be underpaid. Our law firm is proficient at calculating our client's benefits and making sure the insurance company compensates clients fairly. Issues you may encounter even while you are receiving your workers' compensation benefits could include the following: scheduling you for an unreasonable independent medical exam (IME), the abrupt termination of benefits and return-to-work threats. Louis P. Lombardi II & Associates will advise you on what is necessary to force your employer and their insurance carrier to adhere to the law.

Your Responsibilities After a Work Injury

You must report an accident or injury to your employer as soon as possible. You must specify how the injury occurred at work. Tell the doctor about any pain or limitations and follow through with prescribed treatment. Also, inform your doctor if your medical condition changes or you return to work. And last, but not least, call our Plymouth Meeting office and speak to Lou Lombardi to expedite the receipt of your compensation benefits.
