WORKERS COMPENSATION ATTORNEYS
One thing the Pennsylvania 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.

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.

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.
