We Help Injured Pennsylvania Workers
Workplace injuries are a source of uncertainty and stress for workers and their families. A gap in income, even if temporary, can endanger a family’s economic future. Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to assist injured workers and help them pay for necessary expenses and medical treatment until they are able to return to work.
At DiLoreto, Cosentino & Bolinger, injured workers are a large part of our clientele. We have represented injured workers since our founding in 1982. In the years since, our firm has been rated AV-Preeminent* by Martindale Hubbell, our attorneys have been repeatedly selected as Pennsylvania Super Lawyers and Rising Stars, and three of our attorneys were named to the National Trial Lawyer Top 100 list for Pennsylvania. We are also the only Franklin County law firm to have three attorneys certified as workers compensation specialists by the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Section on Workers Compensation Law as authorized by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. These are accolades that we are proud of, and we strive to live up to this high standard every time we agree to represent a worker injured on the job.
Injuries And Conditions Covered By Workers’ Compensation
Many workers who suffer on-the-job injuries do so in accidents, such as injuries suffered in a falls on construction sites or manufacturing factory accidents. Other employees who require workers’ compensation benefits have injuries that were formed over many years of overuse or misuse. These long-term conditions include carpal tunnel syndrome, back pains and other injuries that may come from repetitive motion or a sedentary work style.
Handling All Workers’ Compensation Issues
Following an injury, our law firm is available to help clients at every stage of the workers’ comp process, including preparing and filing the initial application, filing appeals if a claim was denied, and defending clients when insurers seek to reduce benefits. We thoroughly prepare each case, using independent experts when necessary to help us put together the strongest possible claim for each client. Our lawyers assist clients with all of the issues involved with bringing a claim, including:
- Dealing with the employer
- Dealing with the insurance carrier
- Medical benefits

- Negotiating lump sum settlements
- Bringing claims against third parties to maximize our clients’ compensation awards
