Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
If you were hurt on the job or sustained a work-related illness, the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act was created to help provide for your medical expenditures and if you aren’t able to return to work, help compensate you for any lost wages while you recover. Death benefits are also incorporated into the Act to help support the family if need be. The attorneys at Boulevard Law Center have fought and won thousands of cases dealing with workers’ compensation to get their clients the results they need.
The Right Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Will Help You Get Back On Your Feet

What Are My Rights If I Am Hurt? Ask An Injury Lawyer in Philadelphia
Time is always of the essence when it comes to injuries on the job. Under Pennsylvania law, you must notify your employer of your injury within 120 days of sustaining the injury unless you contracted a disease like mesothelioma. Then, the window for filing is 300 weeks from the date you were last employed. Once you have filed a claim you may have to give a statement to the insurance company. It is your right to obtain representation to review any documents before signing them so don’t feel pressured to make an immediate decision when you are contacted by an insurance company.
