WORKERS' COMPENSATION PRACTICE

 
Individual employees who have suffered a work-related injury may have a claim for workers’ compensation benefits under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act.  The workers’ compensation system was designed with the humanitarian purpose of protecting the interests of injured workers.  Through legislative changes and court interpretation, the once favorable law has shifted significantly in favor of employers and the insurance carriers.   

It is crucial that injured workers seek legal assistance from a knowledgeable, experienced practitioner to preserve important rights, which may otherwise be trampled upon by the likes of big insurance companies.  Mr. Campolongo is prepared to spend the time necessary with clients to ensure that all aspects of their employment situation are protected and vigorously defended.
