We Work on Contingency: No Fee for Most Cases Unless We’re Successful
Since YCL was started in 1961, our attorneys have helped injured workers receive the benefits they are entitled. Most cases are handled on a contingent fee basis, which means that you will not pay counsel fees unless we are successful in getting you benefits or preventing the employer from stopping your benefits.
We represent clients from their initial hearing in front of workers compensation judges, to the Workers Compensation Appeal Board, the Commonwealth Court, and even the Supreme Court when necessary. Our representation of clients has resulted in significant changes in workers compensation law.
