Lackawanna County Hurt at Work Attorneys
One thing the Lackawanna County workers’ compensation lawyers at The Pisanchyn Law Firm understand is that anyone involved in a work related injury or anyone receiving workers’ comp is not milking the system; you are a proud and hard-working individual that has fallen victim to an injury that was out of your control.
As a hard working individual it is your right under The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act to receive compensation appropriate for your injuries after being hurt at work. Our workers’ comp lawyers have helped numerous individuals as well as union workers get the benefits they deserve and we want to do the same for you.
WHAT IS WORKMAN’S COMP?
Workers’ comp is a state-mandated program consisting of payments required by law to be made to an employee who is injured or disabled in connection with work.
WHAT TYPES OF EXPENSES DOES THE INSURANCE COVER?
Workers’ comp can cover any of the following expenses:
- medical care from the injury or illness
- replacement income
- costs for retraining
- compensation for any permanent injuries
- benefits to survivors of workers who are killed on the job
DOES IT COVER LONG-TERM AND PERMANENT INJURIES?
Yes. Workman’s comp insurance is not limited to just incidental accidents. It also covers problems and illnesses that are developed over a long period of time of doing the same injurious activity–for example, carpal tunnel syndrome or back problems from some sort of repetitious movement.
WHO IS COVERED?
Most types of employees are covered by workers’ comp insurance including but not limited to:
- Construction Workers
- Factory Workers
- Gas/Oil Drillers
- Laid Off Employees
- Medical Workers
- Office Workers
- Professional Athletes
- Refinery Workers
- State Workers
- Union Members
- Warehouse Workers
CAN MY EMPLOYER FIRE ME FOR OR TELL ME NOT TO FILE A WORKERS’ COMPENSATION CLAIM?
No. If an employer does retaliate against an employee for filing a claim, the employer should be reported immediately to the local workers’ compoffice.
WE CAN HELP OBTAIN THE WORKERS’ COMPENSATION BENEFITS YOU DESERVE
This is a complex area of the law and having expert workers’ compensation legal help is the only way to guarantee you will be receiving any and all benefits owed to you. There are many petitions involved throughout the claim process that can hurt your claim and even cut off your benefits if you don’t know the time restraints and rules for each. Along with these petitions are the possibilities of surveillance and nurse case managers which is why having our experienced PA workers’ comp lawyers on your side is imperative.
Not only will we protect your rights, we will give you free advice and representation for your claim up until a petition is filed. We will also take the time to educate you on all areas of the system so you know what to expect and what to do when certain situations come up. Just like your injury is 24/7, so is our assistance, guidance, and consultation.

No one likes a bully. Yet, after a traumatic event in your life, that is exactly what the insurance company can seem like. Every day I fight zealously for my clients to get them the compensation they are entitled to, counsel them during a difficult period in their life, and protect my clients from those same bullies.
All attorneys can make promises, what separates our firm from the rest is the fact that we never stop working until you are completely satisfied and made whole again after a traumatic injury that was caused by someone else. Once I begin working on your case, the matter becomes personal to me. I always say, ‘I lose sleep so you don’t have to.

I’ve personally witnessed, through an experience of my father’s, how someone else’s negligent acts can alter a person’s life. It is fulfilling to be a member of the Pisanchyn law firm where I can help people like my dad who have been injured through the negligence of others.

Praise for our PA Injury Law Firm
I rate the Pisanchyn law firm five stars if I had a way to rate them 100 stars I would they were so kind so helpful and so caring in a very scary time of my life. I don’t know what I would’ve done without Mr. Pisanchyn and his staff. No matter what I needed they were there morning, noon, or night Mr.Pisanchyn was even kind enough to give me his own personal cell phone number in case I ever needed him day or night. This is the second time I’ve used his law firm and I will use him 100 more Times. I fully recommend his law firm to anyone and everyone in need of a good defense lawyer. I’ve already recommended him at least a dozen times and everyone I told to use his law firm has been more than satisfied. Some of them even called me and said thank you for recommending him. Thank you so much mike for everything you did for me and my family.
Nine years ago I was in a nasty car accident and didn’t know where to turn, with a lot of luck I ended up calling Mike to represent me. It was the best thing I ever did. He never treated me like a client, I made a friend. The friendship extended to the entire office. He did exactly what he said he would. Then 3 years ago my husband got hurt at work and we never thought twice on who to call. By this time Mike had taken on other partners in the firm. Keith, who handled the workers comp case and Lee who took care of the SSI. I don’t know what others are talking about it taking so much time or so much hastle~~~both ended up settling much sooner than we ever expected. The entire firm works together, from the attorneys to the entire staff. I really think that is part of what makes this law firm the best ever.

John and I want to thank you for all you have done for us. We know all of you put a lot of time and work in on our case and for that we are very thankful. You have the nicest friendliest people working there. Mara has been so nice to us. We especially want to thank Doug. We spent many hours talking with him and found him to be very personable.
The Pisanchyn Law Firm is in touch with local affairs and contacted us to say, “I heard about your situation. I AM YOUR attorney.” With aggressive, honorable, and knowledgeable representation, they have also met our pain with consolation… I will never forget the day my attorney called. Trust is the new game in the legal community, the Pisanchyn Law Firm wrote the book on accountability and Justice….CALL THEM.
Thank you so much for all you’ve done to help us through this difficult time. It’s been very much appreciated.
It is heartwarming to know that there are still good and honest people around. Thank you very much!
I cannot thank Doug enough for all of his help with my case.
They helped me tremendously when I was going through Worker’s Compensation and a Settlement. There was no way I could have gone through it myself. Everyone was patient and professional with me and believe, I’m sure that was not easy. Everything was completely settled almost 13 months ago and I’m back on my feet and working once again. I absolutely recommend Pisanchyn Law Firm to anyone that needs help with a work injury or anything work related.
I would just like to thank everyone that helped settle my Workers’ Comp case, you were all so helpful. It meant a lot to me and helped me get my life back on track.
I can’t tell you how happy I am of the results from your office. I got wonderful, professional and extremely fast service for the situations I had. I will be using your office again if need be and telling everyone I know how hard it is to get results without your help.
